Love it! Just think what the numbers will look like once the refreshed IS and new LS hit the lots
Sidenote: thats a great view for the NX!
Nicely done by Lexus in August, in a market that's cooling some off 2015 peaks.
Still a tough market overall, but the light trucks are shining.
This was our contribution last month..doesn't feel special when you see almost 10,000 were sold lol...but wife is happy!
Oh, the jokes I could tell on this post! But I'll be nice.
I see you got it in Black Dynamite. Well played, sir.....well played.
As we know SUVs are killing the market rt now but can you imagine when the RX gets a third row how many more sales it will have?
Also on the Lexus cars. I think the looks are fine but honestly they need more engines that are better performance related. 2.0 is fast enough for the slow people but the 3.5 isn't cutting it. I don't know if they need 3 engines but the IS and GS could be in the low to mid 5s that would help a lot. Also the IS needs a faster engine is they aren't going to bring the ISF back to compete with the Germans who all have a fast smaller sedan with an M, S, or AMG on it.
NX great month! Get a 3.0 engine!
Yeah no growth sedans right now. The competition as well. Look how Benz now has two SUV "coupes" suddenly. The CUVs... It's what the market wants.
Please joke away....
You should hold off for the new LS or get the GS F.
Congrats Mike! Darth RX !
As for the sales surprises, still a bummer that the car sales are spiraling downward fast BUT the NX at over 5K and GX at 2.5k is a pleasant shocker! WOW!
Striking! Congratulations and wishing you many happy miles (and well done keeping your wife happy, makes for fun rides in and out of the car...)
Shame that bin on the picture
Congrats, perfect car !
Photoshopped out the bin, don't think anyone will notice...
I'd have to agree that small-to-mid-sized SUVs are the craze right now (witness the two newest mid-size additions, the Buick Envision and Cadillac XT5, with a smaller, compact Cadillac XT3 on the way). But, with Lexus already in the market with a mid-size RX and compact NX, the big question is if a smaller-than NX (sub-compact) Lexus SUV will be successful in the American market. Honda and Nissan have been successful with the HR-V and Juke (Mazda, less so with the CX-3)...but those are vehicles with mainstream, not upmarket nameplates. I know, of course, that opinions differ on that question, and, while not trying to sound evasive, mine is probably right on the borderline as to whether it would succeed or not.
Hahahaha y'all are hilarious!!!
MM, I agree and something to keep an eye on with a future UX, but the GLA, X1, Q3 seem to be doing fairly well pushing 1500-2500 units per month. If this volume is measured as successful, I see no concerns for a UX to hit these volumes too.
Indeed... I'm curious will the Infiniti qx 30 do well...
