New engines and refined interior: Lexus launched the LS 2021 | Digital Trends Spanish

The LS is one of the most important models for Lexus. Not only because in 1989 it helped consolidate Toyota's commitment to create a new premium brand, especially for the United States. But because it has become one of the flagships of the company. That is why the development of a new model of the LS (Luxury Sedan) is always challenging for the Japanese brand. This Wednesday Lexus presented the 2021 version of the LS 500 that, although not markedly different from its predecessors, incorporates interesting changes. From the start, the company made several optimizations in the drive train, both in the gas station and in the hybrid version, which make it a smoother and more refined vehicle. The LS 500's 3.5-liter biturbo V6 offers the power anyone would expect in a flagship sedan: 4...

MotorTech: Toyota Tundra 2021, smooth ride, comfort and power | Digital Trends Spanish

Choosing a large pickup in a market like the United States can be a challenge. Because the offer is very large and the players that dominate this segment are highly recognized by consumers and have been competing for the first places for decades. But the Toyota Tundra is a truck that little by little gains a space among the heavyweights of this segment. This week at MotorTech, we tested the Tundra 2021 in its Platinum version, a vehicle that at 228.9 inches (5.8 meters) long and 75.8 inches high (1.92 meters) looks huge, robust and modern. On the outside - this version, in particular - has a honeycomb front grill. Panel that is accompanied by two large led headlights. On its side, we see running boards that facilitate entry and exit to the vehicle and large 20-inch ...

Starting at $ 38,200, the midsize SUV offers a smooth and quiet ride, power and agility for city driving, and an interior space that stands out as its main attribute. Although externally it may not seem like it, its seven seats divided into three rows (the captain's type and those in the second heated are heated), waste space for large families and for those who simply like to travel without skimping on luggage. Its dimensions come in at 194.9 inches (4,950 mm) in length, 76.0 inches (1,930 mm) in width and 68.1 (1,730 mm) inches in height, in addition to a 112.2-inch (2,850 mm) ...
