Have Questions for Senior Lexus Executives at the Detroit Auto Show?

Lexus Questions Pattern

Lexus Enthusiast editor Kevin Watts will be at the Detroit Auto Show in Detroit this week, bringing you all the latest on the “unprecedented” Lexus vehicle reveal.

We have also scheduled interviews with Lexus International executive vice president Mark Templin and Lexus USA general manager Jeff Bracken, and want to give you an opportunity to ask some questions.

All questions must be submitted by Monday, January 11th at 5pm ET/2pm PT. A couple important points:

  • We will not be able to ask all questions.
  • Lexus executives will not discuss future products. For the most part, questions regarding unreleased or rumored vehicles will not be asked.

(Submissions from premium members should be posted in the dedicated forum. There’s also a special secret bonus interview for premium members only, be sure to check it out!)

Why follow the Germans into inserting 4-cylinder turbo engines into everything from an IS to a GS? Some of us are more concerned with performance, RWD and a modicum of fuel economy, but not at the expense of power, displacement and engine smoothness. There is no place in my garage for a 4-cylinder engine, which worries me because my 2015 Lexus pair there now may be the last normally aspirated V6's you produce?

Why not use Superchargers on F models instead of Turbos?

Although as a whole the spindle grill seems to work, don't they think that the spindle grill on some models like LX and RX are a bit too exaggerated?Why there's no plug-in hybrid model in the lineup?How are they going to expand in Europe and China?

I second the why no plug-in hybrid question?Also: Lexus is notably absent from India and Mexico. There have been reports over the years of Lexus possibly entering those markets. Then...silence. Could you update us on whether or not there are still plans to sell Lexus vehicles there?

The first generation CT is selling in decent numbers worldwide.  Is Lexus satisfied/content with a single variation of the CT line?I changed the second part of my question above.  Not sure if Lexus will answer my original second part of my question above which I included below.Would Lexus consider expanding the second generation CT line similar to how the first generation IS 300 was expanded into the IS 250/IS 350 in the second generation?

I have a question. The Lexus LS Hybrid was pretty much Lexus' first attempt at building a six-figure luxury car. What did Lexus learn from producing the Lexus LS600hL? What feedback on the car did you receive that can help you down the road?BD

I would like to ask something about the additional power output in the IS350/RC350 engines.  We've had those engines since 2006 with minor updates here and there. Or what is Lexus' stance on engine model life-cycle?  Do we see an upcoming bump in power someday?Perhaps something to that effect.
