It seems that Lexus is doing well these days. Lexus decided that they needed a new design that would appeal to a younger generation. Enter the Lexus ES, a young and sleek version of Lexus with a unique new grill design. Was that enough to increase the numbers for Lexus? While sales did increase in January by 9%, it was actually due to the Lexus RX, an understated crossover car that comes with a 21 MPG rating and a 3.5-liter V6 engine.
Lexus says that weather played a role in the sales mix and we believe it since in the Western US sales of Lexus vehicles were up a shocking 35%. We hesitate to read too much more into the Lexus month given the weather impacts.
