Lexus LS 600hL Goes Autonomous

Lexus LS 600hL Goes Autonomous

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Lexus LS 600hL Goes Autonomous! Recently the Toyota Research Institute (TRI) displayed its 2.0 generation advanced safety research Lexus LS 600hl at the Prius Challenge event held in Sonoma California. This test vehicle is being used to explore a full range of autonomous driving capabilities and Lexus LS 600hl was chosen because of its robust drive-by-wire interface. Toyota first began working on autonomous vehicles in the United States in 2005 and secured patents beginning in 2006, with Toyota holding more patents in the field than any other company. 

“This new advanced safety research vehicle is the first autonomous testing platform developed entirely by TRI, and reflects the rapid progress of our autonomous driving program,” said TRI CEO Gill Pratt.

Toyota explains the technology in the official press release, “The system is computationally rich, focusing heavily on machine vision and machine learning. The layered and overlapping LIDAR, radar and camera sensor array reduce the need to depend too heavily on high-definition maps – especially for near-term systems which will be designed for use in areas where such maps don’t yet exist. The 2.0 is designed to be a flexible, plug-and-play test platform that can be upgraded continuously and often. Its technology stack will be used to develop both of TRI’s core research paths: Chauffeur and Guardian systems. Chauffeur refers to the always deployed, fully autonomous system classified by SAE as unrestricted Level 5 autonomy and Level 4 restricted and geo-fenced operation. Guardian is a high-level driver assist system, constantly monitoring the driving environment inside and outside the vehicle, ready to alert the driver of potential dangers and stepping in when needed to assist in crash avoidance.”

“Basically, it is a smart vehicle designed to get smarter over time,” said Pratt. “It will learn individual driver habits and abilities and will benefit from shared intelligence from other cars as data gathering, sharing and connectivity technologies advance.  We believe Guardian can probably be deployed sooner and more widely than Chauffeur, providing high-level driver-assist features capable of helping mitigate collisions and save lives, sooner rather than later.”

Three Lexus Models Named 2017 Best Cars for the Money

Three Lexus Models Named 2017 Best Cars for the Money

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Recently U.S. News & World Report named the 2017 Lexus ES Best Luxury Midsize Car for the money, the 2017 Lexus RX 350 best Luxury 2-Row SUV for the money, and the 2017 Lexus NX as the best Luxury Compact SUV for the money. The U.S. News Best Car for the Money award aims to highlight vehicles that give you an outstanding ownership experience for a great value, with each winner having the best combination of quality and value in their respective classes. The awards are determined by data used from car rankings, which uses data collected and analyzed from every credible and published review of the model combined with hard safety and reliability data. To measure value, TrueCar was brought in to find average vehicle costs and Vincentric helped give information on total cost of ownership, which includes cost of gas, insurance, and repairs over 5 years. 

The editors shared about the 2017 Lexus ES, “The Lexus ES is definitely a good car. It does most things right for a relatively affordable price. Even a fully loaded ES undercuts the base price of the top-ranked Mercedes-Benz E-Class. It is packed with driver assistance features, many of which are expensive options in competing vehicles, like pre-collision braking and lane keep assist. The ES also doesn’t skimp on fit and finish, with an exceptional cabin worthy of its Lexus badge.”

The editors wrote about the 2017 Lexus RX 350, “The 2017 Lexus RX 350 is a good 2-row midsize luxury SUV. With a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 that runs on regular gasoline, the RX 350 has no problem getting up to highway and passing speeds. It also gets above-average fuel economy for the class and has a strong reputation for reliability.”

The 2017 Lexus NX  impressed, “The Lexus NX is a good SUV with a well-built interior that’s nicely outfitted. It also gets high safety and predicted reliability ratings, as well as good gas mileage. The 2017 Lexus NX 200t is a solid luxury compact SUV with a price that’s lower than many of its competitors. The NX deserves a look from shoppers who want a value-oriented and well-rounded daily driver or family car. ”

2017 Lexus ES Named Consumer Guide's Best Buy

2017 Lexus ES Named Consumer Guide’s Best Buy

By | Lexus News | No Comments

2017 Lexus ES Named Consumer Guide’s Best Buy! The editors test drove more than 150 new vehicles and then selected the top ones in each class as the best buy; however, a vehicle must also distinguish itself as having a good dollar value compared to others in the class. The editors write about the premium midsize class, “Although the defining line between “regular” and “premium” cars isn’t as sharp as it used to be, the latter still tend to offer performance, luxury, and convenience features—along with a more prestigious name—for which some people still seem willing to pay extra.”

So what made the 2017 Lexus ES stand out to the editors at Consumer Guide? The editors write, “Simply put, the Lexus ES excels at coddling. It’s one of the most comfortable luxury sedans around, and it delivers top-grade trimmings and available features at prices that significantly undercut its rivals. In both fuel efficiency and sticker price, the ES 300h is the most economical hybrid of the few available in the premium midsize-car class. The Lexus ES is one of the cushiest, most comfortable vehicles in its class. If you’re more interested in serene cruising than carving corners or making a radical statement, an ES should be right up your alley. Shoppers looking for a green luxury vehicle are well served by the ES lineup as well—the ES 300h delivers outstanding-for-the-class fuel economy with little compromise in overall refinement.”
