Updated 2016 Lexus ES 350 to Built in Kentucky by End of the Year

Lexus ES 2016 Kentucky Update

Here’s a small but interesting fact about the updated 2016 Lexus ES — from Automotive News:

The update will go into production by year end at a new Lexus line being installed at Toyota’s Georgetown, Ky., plant, making it the first Lexus vehicle to be assembled in the United States.

This falls right into the timeline released last year, but it’s still noteworthy.

(As a reminder, ES models will continue to be built in Japan as well.)

I personally enjoy that Japanese car built in Japan feel~ its that authenticity that makes the product feels good. Just a personal preference. It won't stop me being a loyal Lexus fan unless the quality dips.
