Long Island City Lexus | NY Used Car Dealer
Lexus was birthed from an idea in the mind of parent company Toyota. The idea was to design and establish a world-class luxury car brand like no other. Initial work towards this dream commenced in the mid-1980s when the company utilized U.S. marketing focus groups to help interpret luxury design ideas for an American marketplace. Hundreds of prototypes were manufactured and taken on test drives on both Germany’s autobahn and U.S. highways and byways. To say that the results were successful is an understatement. Lexus is known for manufacturing perfectly sophisticated luxury automobiles, and its prominence is understandable. The nameplate has a solid reputation for the high quality and sumptuous cabin that luxury car buyers crave; as well as exemplary performance from vigorous yet whisper-quiet engines.
For the 1990 model year, Lexus introduced its inaugural models – the entry-level ES 250 sedan and the crown jewel LS 400 sedan. The LS 400 was praised by experts and consumers alike. The LS had a price point quite a bit less than smaller, six-cylinder European competitors, even while offering more standard features. Reviewers reported that the car provided a superior luxury-car experience, an astoundingly quiet cabin, impeccable build quality and an extremely cultivated V8 engine. Riding on this early success, the Lexus brand was soon exported to other geographic markets, including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. The family continued to thrive, and soon more models debuted – the SC 300, SC 400 coupe and GS 300, the first performance sedan of the luxury line. By the year 2000, Lexus had added three SUVs to the lineup (LX 450, LX 470 and RX 300) and was reporting over one million vehicles sold in the United States.
Not one to sit back and relax, Lexus kept improving and leading the way. To cater to a growing ecology-minded audience, Lexus introduced hybrid versions of many of its vehicles; and to show its prowess, in 2011, added a world-class supercar, the LFA.
