Too Wild for the US???

Well, we don’t think so! The only thing that makes this commercial wild is that we were not invited to the party. The Japanese-European inspired commercial highlights the All-New 2015 NX, set to release in late fall of 2014.

Anyhow, we would love know what you think? Feel free to hashtag, comment, repost, retweet, share, and tag your friends to this “too wild for the US” video. #RVALexus #RVALexusTooWildFortheUS #RVALexus2015NX

Look for more information on the All-New 2015 Lexus NX to follow in the coming months!  We expect the NX to arrive at Lexus of Richmond December 2014.  Stay tuned #RVA.

Lexus new Generation 8 technology: in limited 2014 models

If you bring your vehicle in for service and drive a 2014 IS, CT, or GX while your vehicle is serviced at Lexus of Richmond, one of the first things you will likely notice is the technology.  Named Generation 8 in Lexus vehicles, this generation of technology boasts new features that haven’t existed in previous generations of Lexus vehicles. A few of these features are the ability to select how many “favorites” for phone contacts you would like, from 6-36, customizing the location of apps on the AppSuite, a 3-dimensional map that includes life-like, true to appearance buildings in major cities, and advanced voice recognition, which means you can speak using full sentences instead of abbreviated commands.  The Generation 8 technology is bound to make your modern life easier and we think will make your modern life simpler, easier, & more fun.  Take a look at it in one of the vehicles the next time you are in Lexus of Richmond.
