With 26,436 total sales, this was the best October for Lexus in the history of the brand — a surprising feat considering only the GX showed a positive gain compared to the year previous.

Once again, it’s the NX that makes the biggest impact to the sales increase with 3,399 units sold in October. There’s a real lull in new vehicles — the updated LX has started arriving at dealerships, but it’s not a volume vehicle. The big change will happen in November when the new RX finally goes on sale.
