December to Remember is Here!

December to Remember is Here!

By | Lexus News | No Comments

The annual Lexus December to Remember is here! This year the focus of the campaign is family togetherness, displayed through five general market commercials and two multicultural media adaptations which aim to inspire adults to find the childlike excitement that accompanies the holiday season. Brian Smith, Lexus vice president of marketing explained saying, “The holidays are a magical time for children, but this year’s campaign reminds everyone, regardless of age, that they’re never too old to wish. Kids have a lifeline to Santa that adults can’t touch, and these spots offer a genuine yet humorous take on families working together so everyone can have a December to remember.”

The “Santa Cam” spot is being translated for the Hispanic market and a second version of “Forgery” is being created for the Asian-American market. For the print aspect of the campaign, exclusive illustrations from artist Andrew Bannecker offer a modern interpretation of a classic winter wonderland. Check out the five spots below!

The first spot is titled “Forgery.”

The second is titled “Mall Santa.”

The third is titled “Santa Letter.”

The fourth is titled “Santa Cam.”

The final spot is titled “Auntie.”

What Exactly is The Lexus IS Sriracha?

What Exactly is The Lexus IS Sriracha?

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Last week, social media was in a frenzy over the release of the Lexus IS Sriracha. In case you don’t know, Sriracha is a spicy Asian sauce that has become increasingly popular over the last few years, especially in California. You may have seen this sauce featured on Pizza Hut’s, McDonald’s or Burger King’s menu. It seems the popularity of the dressing has even made it to the car industry with the release of the Lexus IS Sriracha, but What Exactly is The Lexus IS Sriracha? “The new Lexus IS is so hot, we decided to make it Sriracha hot, with all the custom details every Sriracha fan will appreciate,” said Brian Smith, Lexus vice president of marketing.

The Lexus IS Sriracha was introduced to help launch the new 2017 Lexus IS sports sedan. Partnering with Huy Fong Foods, the brand behind the popular Sriracha sauce, Lexus has made a spicier customized version that is currently on display (until November 27) at the Los Angeles Auto Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center. David Tran, CEO and founder of Huy Fong Foods, said about the collaboration, “I feel so humbled to see my Lexus and Sriracha friends’ love for my hot sauce. The Lexus Sriracha IS is really the perfect mix for a ‘hot’ and ‘spicy car’ – just the way I like it.”

Lexus worked with West Coast Customs to specifically modify the car. In order to achieve the signature Sriracha color of the car’s exterior, Lexus added Sriracha sauce to the paint itself and added flecks of chili-like flakes for additional realism. Furthermore, a Sriracha-like liquid was cast in resin and then formed into a Lexus steering wheel which comes with a warning for “Hot Handling.” The temperature settings, for both the seat warmers and AC/heating system, have been upgraded to go from cool to Sriracha hot. The car even has a Sriracha driving mode that tunes the powertrain for faster gear changes and more dynamic throttle mapping. Custom badging is found on side, rear, and door wells along with illuminated callouts under the passenger and driver’s doors. The seats have been hand-embroidered with the Huy Fong rooster logo, the Sriracha IS logo with green accents that recall the top of the bottle of a Sriracha. These green accents can be found in the: 

  • Spindle grille outline
  • Hand-painted calipers
  • Interior cabin mood lighting
  • Chrome side view mirror accents
  • Hand-stitching on the seats

On top of all this, Lexus has stocked the trunk with 43 bottles of Sriracha (for emergency condiment situations). The key fob also includes an emergency chili button that dispenses sauce from a nozzle on the fob.  Lexus created two Sriracha-hot driving jackets that feature hand-embroidered images of the Sriracha IS with custom Sriracha IS patches. Custom driving mitts are a necessity since the handling is so hot. See the video Lexus made to accompany the launch below:

What do you think about the new Lexus IS Sriracha? Would you drive around in a car inspired by a condiment? Comment below.

Luxury Meets Utility in the NEW 2017 Lexus LX 570

Luxury Meets Utility in the NEW 2017 Lexus LX 570

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Luxury Meets Utility in the NEW 2017 Lexus LX 570! Lexus has been launching it’s new models left and right! We’ve already discussed some of the changes you can expect from the new Lexus ES 350, Lexus RX, the Lexus GX 460, and the 2017 Lexus NX, but recently, Lexus released information on the new 2017 Lexus LX 570. 

What’s New for 2017?

Lexus has given it’s sporty LX 570 a bumper-to-bumper upgrade in design, luxury, and performance over the previous model year, adding the Lexus Safety System+ with emergency automatic braking as standard. Standard LED headlights, turn signals, and foglamps give the redesigned model a lighting signature that is both captivating and useful. 

Under The Hood

A powerful 5.7-liter V8 engine produces 383 horsepower and a peak torque of 403 lb.-ft. at 3,600 rpm. Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, the LX 570 has a 7,000-pound towing capacity. Drive Mode Select allows the driver to tailor powertrain and suspension responses by using a dial on the console, also controlling responses of the Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS). 

What comes in the Standard Lexus Safety System+

The standard Lexus Safety System+ includes Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Intelligent High Beam (IHB) and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control can maintain a preset distance from a vehicle traveling ahead. Using a combination of millimeter-wave radar and a front-facing camera, PCS can detect vehicles, and, in some circumstances, pedestrians. PCS can warn the driver of a possible collision and can initiate automatic braking with Brake Assist if necessary.

LDA uses a camera to monitor visible lane markings, and if it senses the vehicle is drifting from the lane, it will convey audio-visual alerts and vibrate the steering wheel to get the driver’s attention. IHB adjusts high- and low-beam illumination automatically when it detects oncoming traffic or the taillights of a vehicle traveling in front.

With room for eight passengers comes safety for eight. Ten standard airbags are among the comprehensive occupant protection measures in the LX 570.
