Lexus Price Increases and Changes for 2011

Lexus 2011 Even Lexus can't escape Toyota's sudden acceleration problems.

For 2011, all non-hybrid Lexus vehicles come standard with a brake override system, which cuts engine power if the throttle and brake pedals are depressed simultaneously.

Other changes in the Lexus lineup include the introduction of a new model to the IS line - the IS350 AWD, starting at $41,905 (a premium of $2,460 over the rear-drive IS350).

All IS models have new grilles, rear bumpers, taillight surrounds, and 17- and 18-inch wheels. Models with HID lighting also boast LED running lights.

The high-performance IS F features revised power-steering and suspension tuning for 2011. LED running lights are standard.

The 3.5-liter V-6 engine in the ES350, which formerly required 91-octane fuel, is now designed to run on 87-octane fuel instead - helping save owners a few dollars at the pump.

But as a result, engine ratings are down, and 0�60 times slow from 6.8 to 7.0 seconds. Fuel-economy ratings stay unchanged at 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway.

The LS460 now offers available air suspension on all-wheel-drive LS460s. Pricing for the all-wheel-drive models climbs $1,220: the LS460 AWD is now $68,560 and the LS640L AWD costs $74,105.

Base price for the LS600hL hybrid climbs $1,200 to $110,875.






3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
