Al-Futtaim Launches the New LEXUS NX

Published

on

In line with its customer-centric approach and effort to meet the growing and diverse aspirations of discerning drivers in the UAE, Al-Futtaim Lexus has announced the launch of the all-new Lexus NX. The second generation of the luxury mid-size crossover further raises the bar for performance, comfort, and safety to redefine the segment, and opens the next chapter for the Lexus brand.

With the launch of the first-generation RX in 1998, Lexus created a new category of luxury crossover and has been a leader in the realm ever since. In 2014, Lexus launched the NX, which was well-received by customers, thanks to its agile driving performance and powerful design, and has gone on to sell over one million units in more than 90 countries across the globe.

The all-new Lexus NX heralds’ new directions in exterior and interior design and comes with a new electrified powertrain, bringing a quantum leap in dynamic performance to deliver a more rewarding connection between driver and machine with the Lexus Driving Signature. The introduction of the model also marks the debut of a brand-new multimedia platform that takes connectivity, information, and convenience to the next level. In addition, the all-new vehicle benefits from the expansion of the scope and functionality of the next-generation Lexus Safety System+ to help guard against an even wider range of accident risks and bring greater peace of mind to drivers in the region.

Quality was ensured by the implementation of ‘digital development’ to evaluate the design structure under various conditions using computer models. Professional racing drivers also conducted test drives at the Shimoyama test course to thoroughly train the vehicle’s body structure and inherit and evolve the Lexus driving flavor. The ideal cockpit space has been redefined as the contact point between the driver and vehicle, aiming for a design that enables a deeper, more intuitive connection and allows for more precise control of the vehicle.

The NX also comes equipped with the brand new industry-leading connected-car solution, the Lexus Connect App, which enables the owner to connect to their Lexus via smartphone and provides a more convenient and comfortable, and safer driving experience. Lexus Connect lets owners enjoy many features in their vehicle remotely from the comfort of their home or on the go. The app enables owners to remotely start the vehicle, set the climate control to their preference and lock or unlock doors, close windows, and locate their vehicle at any time. Delivering the ultimate convenience, the service allows them to view the dashboard remotely to check the statistical driving data as well as their trip history to understand their driving behavior for ensuring enhanced safety in the future.

Andy Barratt, Managing Director for Al-Futtaim Lexus, commented, “We are thrilled to launch the all-new Lexus NX in the UAE, announcing the beginning of Lexus’ next chapter of excellence. The vehicle is designed to meet the diverse lifestyles of our customers with a comprehensive upgrade and complete renewal of the model’s key strengths. The introduction of the electrified model, which is also a prominent feature of our upcoming model lineup, underlines Lexus’ commitment to promoting the realization of a carbon-neutral society. The sophisticated new design and enhanced driving performance add to NX’s appeal, while a wealth of new technologies ensures every journey is safer, more connected, and more enjoyable. I’d like to thank our loyal customers in the UAE for continually inspiring us as we strive to create amazing experiences by transforming performance into passion and technology into imagination.”

The next chapter for Lexus centers around four pillars, namely Design, Lexus Driving Signature, Electrification, and Advanced Technology. The all-new NX plays a key role in leading the brand forward by embodying all of these aspects:

  • The NX has been redesigned from the inside out. Every exterior surface has been reimagined. The signature spindle grille has been refined in the front. And, the most notable expression of future Lexus design is the elegant new block LEXUS rear badging and full-width tail lamp.
  • Lexus Driving Signature results from an entirely original approach to vehicle development. This ensures a uniquely Lexus experience where each vehicle exhibits a direct, linear driving feel that is consistent across the lineup.
  • For the second-generation NX, Lexus doubles down with an additional electrified option, a 2.5-liter hybrid electric powertrain.
  • Advanced Technology abounds in the all-new NX. Drivers can stay in touch with the intuitive features of Lexus Interface, such as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. At the same time, occupants enjoy greater peace of mind, thanks to class-leading safety features such as the Lexus Safety System+.

The all-new Lexus NX is built on Lexus’ Global Architecture K (GA-K) platform, which guarantees a more rewarding driving experience. A low center of gravity and new front MacPherson strut suspension system, which features double wishbones with trailing arms at the rear, contributing to the vehicle’s outstanding stability and handling to create exceptional ride comfort.

The hallmark Lexus spindle grille at the front of the vehicle plays an integral role in its design, with an upright position that dispenses with its chrome frame. Smooth lines flow back to accentuate the long bonnet, adding form and volume to the body as it flares broadly through to the muscular rear wings. The front design features four projectors LED headlights incorporating Lexus’ first slim Adaptive High-beam System (AHS).

In contrast, the L-shaped daytime running lights positioned above the headlights have a fade-out function when the driver activates the indicators. The long front-end contrasts with a condensed rear section that is distinguished by new L-shaped all-LED light clusters and Lexus’ signature blade lighting in a bar spanning the vehicle’s width. On the tailgate, the Lexus emblem has been replaced with the ‘LEXUS’ name to create a modern, simple look that further strengthens the vehicle’s visual identity.

The all-new NX is the first model to feature Lexus’ Tazuna concept for the driver’s cockpit, an approach that was initially revealed in the Lexus LF-30 electrified concept car. Taking its name from a Japanese word describing a rider’s use of the reins to control a horse, Tazuna focuses on delivering direct, intuitive control of the vehicle by following the principle of ‘hands on the wheel, eyes on the road.’ It also raises the quality of the driving experience by making the driver feel confident and in command of their vehicle and surroundings. To help keep the driver’s attention focused on the road ahead, the multi-information display (MID), multimedia screen, gauges, and meters are grouped so they can be easily read at a glance.

The steering wheel features a modern design that will be adopted on other new-generation Lexus models and has been precision engineered by Takumi craftspeople to provide the best grip feel and enhance the driver’s feeling of control and connection with the car. The shift lever was made as compact as possible while fitting snugly in the hand at an ideal angle. While the driver experiences the focused, engaging environment created by the new Tazuna cockpit design, passengers enjoy a greater sense of space with elevated levels of comfort, quality, and attention to detail that are quintessentially Lexus, evoking the feeling of a luxurious lounge.

Inside, drivers can create an oasis with nature-inspired Thematic Ambient Illumination, an optional feature that bathes the NX interior in a choice of 14 themes. Each theme has been carefully selected to express a full range of emotions and evoke a feeling of comfort, with themes including Rain Forest, Waterfall, and Sunset. In addition, there are 64 different ambient lighting colors to choose from.

The all-new NX’s inviting interior lets drivers and passengers enjoy a host of advanced features for a refined cabin experience. These include a new 14-inch touchscreen multimedia system – a Lexus first – that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7-inch color multi-information display (MID), a wireless charging system for smartphones, and a Climate Concierge to ensure the cabin temperature is precisely adjusted to suit each occupant. The system uses S-Flow control to recognize which seats are occupied and directs heating or cooling performance accordingly while taking into account the temperature setting, cabin temperature, ambient temperature, and the effect of sunlight through the windows.

The vehicle also offers SmartAccess with a push-button start, a 17-speaker Mark Levinson Clari-Fi 2.0 sound system, a panoramic roof with movable outer sliding glass for the front section, and an extended rear section to provide more light for rear-seat passengers. It comes complete with an 8-way adjustable power driver seat, as well as ample luggage space, thanks to the 60:40 split-folding rear seats. Additionally, the 2022 Lexus NX adds the convenience of a hands-free electrically powered backdoor, which is activated via a foot-operated system that can be used when the user’s hands or arms are full.

Complementing the all-new NX’s distinctive design is a thrilling drive personality imbued by two powertrain options. A newly developed inline 4-cylinder, 2.4 L turbocharged engine that produces 275 hp and 430 nm of torque ‎is mated to a new 8-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission (8AT). Meanwhile, the new hybrid-electric system combines two power sources consisting of a 2.5-liter petrol engine and two electric motors producing 188 hp and 234 hp, respectively. These offer a combined power of 240 hp and can deliver 239 nm and 391 nm of torque, respectively. The hybrid-electric system is also mated to a Direct Shift Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that provides the lowest fuel consumption value of 21.5 km/L while delivering a new level of driving pleasure.

The all-new Lexus NX hybrid-electric model can be driven entirely on electrical ‎power with zero fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions, or by combining the power generated from both the petrol ‎engine and two electric motors, depending on the vehicle’s speed and customer’s driving behavior. ‎Its hybrid-electric batteries are continuously charged by either the petrol ‎engine or when decelerating and braking, eliminating the need to plug in a power cord. A host of advanced technologies ensure the hybrid-electric model drives like any other conventional vehicle and ‎does not require special fuel.

As with any Lexus vehicle, safety is a top priority for the all-new Lexus NX. Drivers can enjoy complete peace of mind, thanks to the Lexus Safety System+, which is an advanced safety and driver assistance system that includes a Pre-Collision System (PCS) with new features and expanded detection range, Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Emergency Steering Assist (ESA), and Daytime Pedestrian Detection (DPD).

The system also includes all-speed range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) with two new features, namely the Turn Signal Control (TSC) that makes highway overtaking safer and smoother by providing an initial increase in acceleration when the driver has engaged the turn signal, and the Curve Speed Reduction (RSR) that suppresses vehicle speed when entering a bend and offers additional acceleration upon exiting the bend. Drivers also benefit from Lane Tracing Alert (LTA), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS), and Adaptive High-beam System (AHB).

In another world-first, the new Safe Exit Assist (SEA) feature uses the Lexus-first e-latch system combined with a Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) to help prevent accidents. The system works by detecting traffic or cyclists approaching from the rear and automatically cancels door opening if an occupant tries to open the door to avoid a collision. The vehicle also includes comprehensive safety features designed to protect its occupants, including three SRS airbags, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Parking Assist Monitor (PAM), Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Active Cornering Assist (ACA), Drive-Start Control (DSC), Panoramic View Monitor (PVM), and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), among many others.

Further adding to its stylish visual appeal, the 2022 Lexus NX comes in a refined range of color options that allow discerning owners to customize their vehicles according to their tastes. Customers can choose from nine distinctive exterior colors, including two new colors, namely Sonic Chrome and Madder Red. Meanwhile, the interior comes in four elegant colors, including brand-new Black & Rich Cream and Hazel options, together with Dark Rose and Black. Three newly developed wheel designs have also been introduced in 20-inch size to further express the driving feel pursued by the Lexus brand.

For those seeking to experience the ultimate in thrilling responsiveness, the all-new NX is also available in an F Sport version. Engineered for exhilaration, the F brand DNA has trickled down from the legendary LFA, which represents the pinnacle of refined performance. The NX F Sport model boasts exclusive interior and exterior features, including a distinctive ‘F’ mesh-pattern grille in Piano Black, new front and rear bumper designs with larger side vents cut into the front bumper, black roof rails, and 20-inch alloy wheels with a 10-spoke design inspired by the wheels used on Lexus’ LC flagship coupe.

The cabin comes with Dark Spin Aluminum ornamentation, a unique meter, bolstered sport seats, a newly developed steering wheel, and aluminum pedals and scuff plates. Owners can choose from a range of ten exterior colors that emphasize the vehicle’s sportiness, including two that are exclusive to the NX F Sport model, namely Heat Blue CL and White Nova GF. The interior is available in Flare Red, White, and Black variants.

Published

on

The 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S, the brand’s first global battery-electric vehicle (BEV), which will launch initially in the U.S. and Canada, delivers 4xe capability, impressive performance credentials, a sleek aerodynamic design and state-of-the-art technology; Jeep Wagoneer S delivers exhilarating performance with 600 horsepower, more than 800 Nm of immediate torque for lightning-quick 0-60 mph acceleration time of 3.4 seconds and range of more than 300 miles. Jeep brand-exclusive Selec-Terrain traction management system features five distinct drive modes: Auto, Sport, Eco, Snow, and Sand, for all weather and road conditions.

Debuting first, the Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition features elegant black cues, a reimagined seven-slot illuminated grille, 20-inch wheels and standard dual-pane panoramic sunroof (Launch Edition to be US only); Tech-integrated interior with 45 inches of usable screen space – best-in-class among EVs – with segment-exclusive interactive front passenger screen, premium heated and ventilated front and rear seats and segment-exclusive 19-speaker, 1,160-watt McIntosh audio system; Available in Jeep brand dealerships in US starting in the second half of 2024, the Wagoneer S will later be available in markets around the world.

The Jeep brand is charging into the electrified SUV segment with the reveal of its first global battery-electric vehicle (BEV) – the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition (US only). The all-new, all-electric 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S will launch first in the U.S. and Canada in the second half of 2024 and later be available in markets around the world.

The Jeep Wagoneer S is offered exclusively as a BEV with a range of more than 300 miles on a single charge, delivering 600 horsepower, lightning-quick 0-60 mph acceleration time of 3.4 seconds and more than 800 Nm of instant torque. With impressive performance credentials paired with the Jeep brand-exclusive Selec-Terrain traction management system, the Jeep Wagoneer S instils driving confidence and traction for all weather and road conditions.

“The launch of the all-electric Jeep Wagoneer S marks a new chapter in the storied history of the Jeep brand,” said Antonio Filosa, Jeep brand CEO. “Building upon nearly a century of innovation and design, this first global EV will introduce a whole new generation of owners to an experience that is distinctly Jeep and 100% electric in every way. With new energy in the Jeep vehicle lineup, ranging from EV to V-8, customers have never had more freedom to choose their own adventure.”

To make charging of this first global Jeep brand BEV quick and easy for customers, the Jeep Wagoneer S carries an efficient 400-volt, 100-kilowatt-hour battery pack that allows owners to charge the vehicle from 20% to 80% in 23 minutes (with a DC fast charger). Every Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition includes a 48-amp Level 2 home charger or public charging credits of equal value through Free2move Charge, Stellantis’ 360-degree charging ecosystem, making it easy for customers to always be charged by delivering seamless charging and energy management. Wagoneer S customers can access the Free2move Charge app to conveniently search for charging stations, activate the charging session and keep track of their charging history (US only).

The foundation for the segment-leading characteristics of the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S is the highly flexible, BEV-native STLA Large platform. Jeep brand designers and engineers flexed the STLA Large platform to adjust the length, width, suspension and powertrain configurations to tailor it specifically for the Jeep Wagoneer S to deliver instant torque and lightning-quick acceleration. The standard, all-electric, four-wheel drive delivers composed driving dynamics both on-road and in a variety of road conditions. Stellantis-designed electric drive modules (EDMs) independently power the front and rear wheels for instant torque response, while the Jeep brand-exclusive Selec-Terrain traction management system features five distinct driving modes: Auto, Sport, Eco, Snow, and Sand.

The Jeep Wagoneer S’s 3-in-1 EDMs combine the electric motor, gearing and power electronics into a single, compact unit that is both powerful and efficient. The front EDM is equipped with wheel disconnects to reduce energy draw when cruising and to help optimize range. The use of new technologies and techniques played a crucial role in the overall development of the Jeep Wagoneer S. To improve the driving experience and reduce the overall noise and vibration levels to create a quiet interior cabin and a smooth ride, the Jeep engineering team improved body torsion stiffness by 35% over previous midsize-segment Jeep brand SUVs for a superior ride, handling and effective response to driver input.

A vehicle forged from premium heritage, innovation and refinement, the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S is set to blaze its own path with its elevated style, sleek sophistication and unwavering confidence. The SUV’s exterior design is an intelligent combination of harmonious proportions, modern 4xe capability and aerodynamic efficiency that reimagines the Jeep brand’s functional side for today’s electrification era. The front fascia is artfully punctuated by a reimagined, seven-slot grille, transforming the functionality of breathing into seeing. No longer needed to allow airflow and cooling, the enclosed grille now illuminates the line of sight when approaching the vehicle. New striking ambient cast lighting is inspired by modern architecture and delivers a distinguishable appearance even miles down the road.

Aerodynamic surfacing is pronounced through the precise slope and curvature of the hood and windshield, both angled for optimal performance and efficiency at high speeds. A sloping roofline cascades beneath a cantilevered rear spoiler, bridging function and aesthetics with its signature Wagoneer silhouette. Debuting first for the 2024 model year, the Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition will be exclusively outfitted with elegant dark accent cues. Delivering style and customization straight from the factory, the Launch Edition features 20-inch Gloss Black wheels, as well as Gloss Black and dark neutral grey exterior elements throughout. Noticeably absent is the use of chrome, as the design team looked to incorporate more environmentally friendly processes and materials. Satin-painted accent trim and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof for an open-air experience round out the exterior appearance details.

When it comes to an all-electric vehicle, aerodynamics is a crucial component of the overall design equation. Jeep brand designers and engineers set aggressive goals to reach optimal aerodynamic performance for maximum efficiency, range and performance while maintaining its sleek, premium appearance. By utilizing state-of-the-art tools and a rigorous testing and development process, including state-of-the-art wind tunnels, the team achieved a coefficient of drag (CD) of 0.29, which is the lowest CD ever for a Jeep vehicle and approximately 15% better than the average SUV.

Structurally, the roof and rear liftgate spoiler are angled to minimize wake size. The vehicle’s flush pocket door handles, rear wing and integrated fins help guide airflow around the vehicle and control the separation point at the rear. Additionally, an integrated system of underbody shields, three-dimensional shaped front tyre spats and a unique side-sill design all direct airflow smoothly around the tyres and to the rear of the vehicle for minimum drag. All of these contribute to the Wagoneer S being the most aerodynamic Jeep brand SUV ever.

As the pioneers and creators of the industry’s first modern luxury SUV, the iconic 1963 Jeep Wagoneer was a cut above the competition, breaking new ground and ushering in the widespread adoption of utility vehicles. Six decades later, the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S continues to push boundaries and evolve the iconic Jeep brand with a new embrace of technology, luxury and innovation.

The 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S builds upon the Jeep brand’s legacy of world-class interiors that exemplify the art of travel. Its tech-integrated interior is equally impressive as its performance numbers, with a best-in-class usable screen space of more than 45 inches, segment-exclusive interactive front passenger screen, artisan details and elegant appointments.

Building upon current-generation Jeep Grand Wagoneer design cues, the sleek, linear cockpit is fully digital with modern controls and interfaces. The focal point of the front cabin is a cross-car wing sculpture with a visually continuous display that spans the entire width of the front instrument panel with wine-red accent stitching and chiselled metal decorative trim. The architecturally impactful, integrated 12.3-inch centre display is framed by a rich mix of materials, including a refined cross-metal deco trim applique with a glazed laced pattern.

There are several new details throughout the interior, including a performance-inspired, wine-red-stitched steering wheel with a flat-bottom design and twin-spoke. The steering wheel introduces a new Cabo vinyl anti-microbial surface coating, making it easier to keep the vehicle clean. The electronic door releases, which are new for the Jeep brand, can be activated with ease by the light touch of a thumb. A newly relocated start button is surrounded by a die-cast zinc metal marked with a fine, navigational haptic textured pattern.

The Launch Edition comes standard with a full suite of customizable LED lighting with daytime/nighttime settings, plus active, direct ambient lighting with up to 64 selectable colours. The spacious, five-passenger Jeep Wagoneer S is the only BEV in its segment to have standard heated and exclusive standard ventilated rear seats.

Audiophiles looking for a premium, immersive sound system need look no further than the new Jeep Wagoneer S. Thanks to a segment-exclusive partnership with McIntosh, signature audio performance is delivered through a custom-tuned, 19-speaker system. Powered by a 1,160-watt amplifier and 12-inch subwoofer for outstanding bass quality, the high-performance system delivers an immersive experience, making all vehicle occupants feel like they’re in the recording studio with their favourite artists.

The front cockpit of the Jeep Wagoneer S is adorned with several new details, including a new black ceramic-coated aluminium with haptic applique that appears on many of the vehicle’s touch points. Featured prominently on the driver control centre, the exclusive navigational tactile pattern is cool to the touch and has a porcelain-like feel. Soft-wrapped doors are accentuated with decorative trim, including chiselled cross-metal accents to match the front instrument panel.

The use of recycled resources and materials was consciously integrated into the Jeep Wagoneer S. The seating, console, doors and instrument panel surfaces feature a non-leather synthetic material. Additional appointments include a premium microfiber suede headliner and premium carpets comprised of recycled pre- and post-consumer materials.

Leading the way in its class among all EVs, the all-new 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S features more than 45 inches of high-definition sculpted screen space, including a segment-exclusive 10.25-inch front interactive passenger display that talks directly to the Uconnect 5 system, allowing the front passenger to provide the driver with directions with a quick touch of the screen.

The Jeep Wagoneer S driver will experience elevated driving and seamless connectivity through an all-new standard 12.3-inch driver cluster designed to be intuitive and visually impactful based on customer feedback. Working with the standard integrated navigation system, new dynamic road views better assist the driver and augment the vehicle’s standard autonomous driving system. It also features a refined set of menus, including BEV-specific elements, such as charge level, battery health and available power. When parked and plugged in, the Jeep Wagoneer S cluster will display the current charging status, which is activated when the remote key is sensed.

The standard 12.3-inch centre display houses the award-winning Uconnect 5 system, offering new levels of clarity. The screen is more responsive and provides better visibility than previous generations, specifically related to the readability of maps, cameras and widgets. An expansive range of saturated colours and backlighting also allows better projection of system apps.

The Jeep Wagoneer S also includes Jeep Connect services as part of the Jeep app, which helps owners understand and access details, such as the vehicle’s available remaining charge. For instance, with the Dynamic Range Mapping feature, once a destination is entered into the navigation, software algorithms calculate and visually display the range that can be travelled based on the vehicle’s state of charge.

The 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S delivers a combination of more than 170 standard safety and security features that help make instrumentation easier to see and aid in collision avoidance with advanced driver-assist technology. Features on the Launch Edition include Active Driving Assist, Intersection Collision Assist, Drowsy Driver Detection, Traffic Sign Recognition and Surround View camera.

With a flexible architecture and open software-defined platform, the Jeep Wagoneer S can receive innovative features and services, including additional automated driving, performance and other technologies via over-the-air (OTA) updates. With OTA updates, the vehicle will continue to evolve.

Jeep Wagoner S customers are automatically enrolled in Jeep Wave, a premium loyalty program filled with benefits and perks, including dedicated 24/7 support. Availability of features and trim levels specified above vary in various regions.
