The most desirable Lexus, the stunning LC, has finally abandoned one of
its key flaws: the frustrating touchpad infotainment controller that's

$550 to $102,150, while the LC500 convertible is up $2700 to a new starting
price of $106,350. Lexus says that the 2024 models will start arriving at U.S.
dealerships in June.
