QOTD: What Brand Would You Rep?

A thought struck me the other day – since joining TTAC, I’ve liked just about every Honda I’ve reviewed. I even found little fault with the Clarity, which I was otherwise neutral towards. That doesn’t mean I like every Honda. I drove the Fit for 10 minutes at a media event last fall (no review […] The post QOTD: What Brand Would You Rep? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

F This: Lexus Mulling a Hotter Crossover

There’s no shortage of F Sport models populating the Lexus lineup, but those efforts amount to little more than an appearance package designed to foist some of the aura of the brand’s F performance division onto pedestrian models. There’s no additional power. While the brand already has two F models in the form of the […] The post F This: Lexus Mulling a Hotter Crossover appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Lexus Introduces Antidote to New “Roughing the Passer” Rule

As the Big Game approaches, luxury automaker Lexus offers an antidote to this season’s controversial “roughing the passer” rule. The rule, which was designed to better protect quarterbacks from physical harm, has sparked no shortage of debate — with fans, analysts, coaches, defenders and quarterbacks alike questioning whether its enforcement has gone too far. In a video released today on Lexus.com/QBSS, featuring Heisman Trophy winner and former quarterback Matt Leinart, Lexus reveals a suite of...

2018 Lexus GX460 Review – Invisibility Cloak With Off-road Chops

When the good folks who bring me cars for review each week mentioned that a Lexus GX460 would be coming to my door, I honestly forgot what the GX was.

Lexus’ LC Convertible ‘Concept’ Is More Like a Halo in Waiting

Late last year, Toyota Motor North America CEO Jim Lentz suggested the automaker, after taking stock of its inventory, might cut some struggling product from its store shelves.

2018 Lexus RX 350L Review – Go Long

Twenty years ago, Lexus created a new segment: the luxury crossover. That 1998 RX 300 was a revelation — buyers with means who wanted something with a higher seating position were previously relegated to traditional, truck-based SUVs. Those old-school machines generally had poor on-road behavior due to their trucky roots. Not the RX.

Jim Perkins, Who Saved the Corvette From a Moribund GM, Dies

Much has been written about Jim Perkins, the Texas boy with a keen love of Chevrolet whose relentless ambition finally placed him in GM’s sphere of influence. It’s thanks to Perkins that Chevrolet’s Corvette is still General Motors’ halo car, and not some long-departed nameplate culled during the height of badge engineering.

Track Edition of Refreshed Lexus RC F to Debut at Detroit Auto Show

While Lexus has cranked out a few impressive sporting models over its lifetime, “performance” is not a term that’s synonymous with the brand.

2020 Hyundai Palisade: If The B-52 Were An SUV

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade makes its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.  With seating for eight, it will likely be a top choice for larger and/or growing families.  But it ain’t super pretty to look at.

Team One & Lexus “December to Remember” Campaign

All three commercials highlight families making memories with their brand-new Lexus throughout the year — during holidays like Easter, Fourth of July and Halloween and other special moments like moving a child into his new college dorm, or attending a high school football game with the family. The ads all culminate with the familiar “December to Remember” jingle, a shot of the classic red bow on a Lexus in the driveway, and a voiceover stating, “find the gift that keeps on giving at the Lexus ‘D...
