New Lexus Safety System Package Coming to Detroit Lexus Dealers

Lexus-Safety-System-Plus-Detroit-Lexus-Dealer

Toyota and Lexus have announced a new safety system package that will be available at Detroit Lexus dealers later this year.  This safety package will bring advanced safety to the mass market and be sold at a price that’s below comparable systems across the auto industry.

The Lexus Safety System + (LSS+) was designed to support driver’s awareness, decision making and vehicle operation over a wide range of speeds.  LSS+ integrates existing active safety technologies such as millimeter-wave radar and a camera to help achieve high reliability and performance.  There are three key areas of accident protection:

  • Preventing or mitigating rear collision
  • Keeping drivers within their lane
  • Enhancing road safety during nighttime driving

The LSS+ will initially be available on the 2016 Lexus RX when it comes to Metro Detroit later this year, as well as on four additional models to be announced in the coming months.  The highly-effective active safety features will be an optional accessory priced at approximately $500 to $635.

Pedestrian Pre-Collision System 

The millimeter-wave radar and camera detect pedestrians in addition to vehicles.  These tools prevent or mitigate collisions with an audio and visual alert in addition to brake assist.  Automated braking will follow if the driver does not brake in time.

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)

A camera detects visible white and yellow lane markings.  If a vehicle starts to deviate from a lane the driver is alerted with an audio-visual alert and steering wheel vibration.

Automatic High Beam (AHB)

Enhances forward visibility during nighttime driving.  A camera is used to detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and the tail lights of vehicles ahead, and automatically switches between high and low beam so as not to affect other driver’s visibility.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

Millimeter-wave radar is used on highways to detect preceding vehicles and determine their speed.  DRCC then adjusts vehicle speed (within a set range) to help maintain a pre-set distance between vehicles.  DRCC helps to maintain a smooth acceleration and deceleration while driving.

Detroit Lexus Dealer Explains Benefits of Lexus Enform

lexus-enform-detroit-mi

Your Detroit Lexus dealer wants to ensure drivers are familiar with the advantages of Lexus Enform. Lexus Enform includes four services to provide drivers with peace of mind, navigation, convenience and entertainment, with a goal of connecting you and your Lexus like never before.

Lexus Enform Safety Connect

Lexus Enform Safety Connect provides emergency assistance in a moment’s notice, 24 hours a day.  It can be used during a health emergency, traffic accident or any other urgent situation–eliminating the need for other roadside assistance programs.  When the Emergency Assistance Button is pressed, you’re connected to a live response center agent and your location is sent to the agent through GPS technology.  When airbags are deployed, or a severe rear-end collision takes place, an Automatic Collision Notification is sent.  After attempting to speak with occupants, an agent will direct emergency services to your location.

In the event that your vehicle is stolen, Safety Connect can help pinpoint the location once a police report is filed.  This helps with a faster recovery that may minimize the amount of damage done.

Lexus Enform Remote

The new Lexus Remote App is available on 2015 IS, GS, LS, RC, RC F and navigation-equipped ES and NX models.  On cold winter and hot summer days, the app can start your vehicle remotely to warm or cool the interior based on your last temperature setting.  The engine will run for up to 10 minutes, or until a door is opened, the brakes are pressed or it is turned off remotely.

If you’re having one of those days where you can’t remember if you locked your car door or shut the moonroof, simply check the status using your smartphone.  Doors can be locked and unlocked from the app, and if you unlock the door by accident, it will automatically lock after 60 seconds if no further action is taken.

For added peace of mind, there’s also a guest driver monitor.  Alerts are sent to you when another driver goes over a set speed, curfew, miles driven, engine run time, total elapsed time or distance from a set location.

Lexus Enform Destinations

Lexus Enform Destinations can help you plan a trip from wherever you are.  Users can search, organize, and name up to 200 destinations that can then be sent wirelessly to the Lexus navigation system.  There’s also the 24-hour Destination Assist that gives you access to a live response center ready to help you locate a business or address and send the destination directly to your vehicle’s navigation system.

Lexus Enform App Suite

The fourth component of Lexus Enform is the App suite, which is complimentary.  It allows access to your favorite mobile applications through your compatible smartphone, including: Bing, Pandora, Yelp, Movietickets.com and more.  In select vehicles, accessing and controlling the features is easier than ever using Advanced Voice Recognition.

Whether you’re setting up your Lexus Enform for the first time or simply trying to become more familiar with one of the features, our Technology Specialists are always available to make sure our owners are getting the most out of their Lexus vehicle.

If your current Lexus doesn’t offer Enform, visit our Metro Detroit dealer Model Showcase–your new Lexus is waiting!

Detroit Lexus Dealer Shares First Image of 2016 Lexus RX

2016-Lexus-RX-Image-from-Detroit-Lexus-Dealer

The debut of the 2016 Lexus RX is less than two weeks away, but the first image is here and your Detroit Lexus Dealer is excited to share it!

The Lexus RX defined a new luxury segment when it was released 17 years ago.  It has dominated that segment over the years thanks to its award-winning dependability and overall value.  From what we can see so far, the fourth generation RX is edgier than previous generations and will share similar sharp lines with Lexus’ smaller SUV, the Lexus NX, which was released last fall.

Although not yet confirmed, many are saying the new 2016 Lexus RX will contain aluminum components–causing an improvement in fuel efficiency and performance thanks to the material’s lighter weight.

The global debut will take place Wednesday, April 1st at 9 a.m. EDT., at the Jacob Javit Convention Center in New York.  Watch the reveal live.

meade-lexus-supports-the-boys-and-girls-club-of-Southeastern-Michigan

Meade Lexus is honored to help keep Detroit youth on the path to great futures by supporting Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan.  The critical funding supports enhancements that will positively impact more than 3,000 youth members annually at the Lloyd H. Diehl Club and James and Lynelle Holden Club.

The Diehl Club will receive basketball hoops, tennis nets, equipment racks, branded jerseys and uniforms, and a Wii U video game system.  The Holden club will also be receiving uniforms and a Wii U video game system, as well as jump ropes, Nerf footballs, and scoreboards.

Since 1962, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan have been providing high quality youth development programs and a safe haven for children.  There are currently 10 centrally located clubs.  The programs offered at the clubs are created to help kids ages six to 18 during after school hours and include a full range of life skills, including: the arts, character and leadership development, education and career development, health and life skills, and sports, fitness and recreation.  Statistics show that these programs help 90% of Boys and Girls Club members graduate from high school–compared to the 58% average of Detroit youth.

“Our goal is to help the kids we serve achieve three priority outcomes: Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles,” said Len Krichko, President and CEO of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan. “This grant enhances our ability to achieve these outcomes for which we are grateful to Lexus and EcoMedia.”

The support of the club was made possible through Lexus dealers’ participation in CBS EcoMedia’s EducationAd program.  Thanks again to the kids at the Lloyd H. Diehl Club for welcoming part of the Meade Lexus team last week!

Detroit Lexus Enthusiasts Explore the Lexus LF-SA Concept Car

Detroit Lexus enthusiasts can now get a more in-depth look at the Lexus LF-SA concept car that was unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show earlier this morning.

Last year marked the 25th anniversary of the very first Lexus, the LS400 flagship sedan.  To celebrate, Lexus’ Europe-based design studio created an ultra-compact, sub-B-segment urban 2+2.  The exterior color, Stellar Silver, was chosen as a reference to space exploration and the interior was inspired by the scene of a solar eclipse.

The LF-SA (SA stands for small adventure) demonstrates Lexus’ passion for upcoming design trends and explores unexpected territories for the brand in a bold and emotional execution.  Not everything is new when it comes to the latest design, though, as the concept remains driver focused to support Lexus’ vision that the driving experience remains the ultimate luxury.

Exterior

The LF-SA stands at 135.8 inches long, 66.9 inches wide and 56.3 inches high.  The compact design makes it maneuverable and agile, targeting the intent of a true city car.  Its styling is rugged and confident.  It has a highly sculpted surface to create the perception that the vehicle changes from every angle.

The newest expression of the Lexus spindle grille has an angular pattern that radiates from the Lexus logo and strongly influences the front fenders and side bodywork to reinforce the concept’s wide and firmly planted stance.  The spindle grille shape is also referenced in the rear styling, which incorporates L-shaped lamp clusters in a flying-buttress design.  Other signature trademarks can also be seen throughout such as the arrowhead motif.

Interior

The compact exterior does not impact a surprisingly spacious interior.  Since sole occupancy is typical in city driving, the cabin layout gives priority to the driver.

The driver’s seat is fixed while the steering wheel and pedals are adjustable–bringing the vehicle to the driver rather than vice versa.  The passenger side does slide, however, giving access to rear accommodations.

The information system includes a hologram-style digital display incorporated into the instrument panel and a wide angle head-up display.

Meade Lexus Announces Lexus Award from J.D. Power and Associates

2015-Lexus-ES-350-detroit-lexus-dealer
J.D. Power and Associates have released the 2015 Vehicle Dependability Study results and Meade Lexus is delighted to announce that Lexus has come in first place for the fourth consecutive year.

The study measures the number of problems reported in a 12-month period by original owners of 2012 model-year vehicles, with a lower score reflecting higher quality.  Several Lexus models topped the lists of individual segments as well, with the Lexus ES and Lexus GX both claiming first in their categories.  The Lexus ES was also the highest-ranked model among all other vehicles in the study with the lowest average number of reported problems per 100 vehicles.

vehicle-dependability-results-2015

Now in its 26th year, the J. D. Power and Associates’ Vehicle Dependability Study continues to be an important tool for consumers making a new or pre-owned vehicle purchase.  The number of problems an owner could experience not only affects their intent to repurchase from the same brand, but a vehicle’s retained value as well.

The Toyota brand ranked third overall in the study and together Lexus, Toyota and Scion totaled seven vehicle segment awards.
