The Lexus car lineup was hit hard this month with a 25% drop off compared to 2016. Luckily the SUV was there to pick up the slack with another record-setting result — here’s Lexus USA Vice President and General Manager Jeff Bracken:

“We’re continuing to ride the luxury SUV wave with our sixth straight best-ever month for Lexus luxury utility vehicles.”

“Now we’re entering our favorite time of the year with our December to Remember sales event. The kick-off begins today with the best deals and product mix of the year. Of course, our customers can count on our iconic big red bows. Everything is lined up for a great close to 2017.”
