Lexus and the NFL Team Up

Lexus and the NFL Team Up

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Lexus has teamed up with the NFL to be the presenting sponsor of Thursday Night Football’s 2016 halftime show, which will be featured on NFL Media, CBS, and NBC Sports. This isn’t the only sport Lexus has been involved in this year– recently we shared that Lexus sponsored the U.S Open Golf Championship and earlier this year Lexus hosted “GS-F the Bracket” for March Madness on Yahoo Sports. This will be Lexus‘s fifth season as the title sponsor of the Lexus Halftime Show for Thursday Night Football on NFL Network, but this is the first year that it will be featured on CBS and NBC Sports as well.

Brian Smith, the VP of Lexus marketing, said about the partnership,”The Lexus Halftime Show sponsorship on Thursday Night Football gives us the opportunity to reach a premium, live-viewing audience in a contextually relevant way by incorporating high impact NFL content. We’re pleased to renew this partnership with CBS and NFL Network, which now includes NBC, to the Thursday night franchise.”

Lexus Kentucky Plant

Takumi: Lexus’s High Production Standards

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Today’s Lexus news comes from Georgetown, Kentucky, the location of the new $360 million Lexus ES plant. Laurence Iliff, reporter for Automotive News, has taken us into the heart of a Lexus assembly line to highlight the differences between Toyota manufacturing and the manufacturing for Toyota’s luxurious sister, Lexus. Wilbert James, president of Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, during an April plant tour said, “Our team members’ natural sense was that we can build a good car, and they do, they build a great car (the Camry which the Toyota side of the plant manufacturers. It’s also where Lexus looked to staff their plant). But Lexus is an exceptional car. And having the opportunity to understand the difference between great and exceptional, it’s not something that you can just explain verbally. You have to show it.”

For Lexus, production of cars is taken to a new level–assemblers wear white gloves and are trained to detect minimal changes in pressure while constructing the vehicle. There is even special lighting that helps workers better detect imperfections. Brad Turner, a group leader in stamping explains, “Something as thin as a human hair can create a defect that is unacceptable.” To further put the differences in perspective, Toyota Camrys are produced roughly every 54 seconds while a Lexus ES takes 4.5 minutes to complete. In Japan, this dedication to expert craftmanship is referred to as takumi.

Stop by our dealership and check out the beautifully and painstakingly built Lexus models we have in our inventory! For more Wilde Lexus news, Follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.
