    Segment Transcript


    I’m Laura Reynolds with CarProUSA.  Lexus is updating the 2022 LC 500 Convertible. The LC 500 will have new suspension tuning and a more focused color palette, featuring nine exterior colors. Lexus says considerable driving evaluation and analysis went into the unique driving qualities that give the vehicle its own athletic identity to offer impressive performance while remaining true to its convertible design. From its dampers and coils to its bushings and the unique Yamaha performance damper placed transversely at the rear, the convertible’s specially designed components are designed to help ensure comfortable, yet sharp, road-going performance. A reduction of un-sprung weight in the front suspension improves the overall stroke, and weight is also reduced in the rear with the use of lightweight die-cast aluminum for the construction of the suspension tower brace.  For more information on these and other vehicles, check out CarProUSA. With Today’s Auto News, I’m Laura Reynolds.
