If you had any doubt that auto show season is in full swing, consider this: the Lexus brand is exhibiting at no fewer than three auto shows that come back-to-back this month, with further news expected next month from the Geneva Motor Show and more still expected from the New York International Auto Show at the Javits Center in Manhattan this April. For your Lexus dealership near Los Angeles, this is a bit like making a wishlist. It’s a great time to preview what we’ll be able to offer our customers at the Keyes Lexus showroom in the months ahead.
Chicago Auto Show
The entire lineup of 2017 Lexus models is on hand right now in Chicago, but special mention goes to the 2018 Lexus LC and 2018 Lexus LS, neither of which has entered production yet, and each of which takes a bow here. The Lexus LS enters its fifth generation in model year 2018 with a substantial redesign (it’s truly “all new”). The Lexus LC is making its curtain call in Chicago ahead of its long-awaited debut, when it takes its place atop the Lexus family tree.
Pittsburgh Auto Show
While Chicago gets all the attention — it’s the biggest auto show in North America, after all — the Pittsburgh Auto Show is running concurrently. The automaker will be displaying current models like the Lexus LX here, but won’t be unveiling anything new.
Canadian International Auto Show, Toronto
Strictly speaking, there’s nothing “new” at the Canadian International Auto Show. On the other hand, given that each major offering from the Lexus brand hasn’t entered production yet, we suppose they couldn’t be newer. The Lexus LF-FC Concept, with its hydrogen fuel cells and lovely curves, makes its Canadian debut. So does the Lexus UX concept, which will soon be holding down the compact end of the Lexus SUV lineup. Finally, Canadian auto fans will also be treated to the body-hugging and innovative Lexus Kinetic Seat Concept that was designed for the Lexus UX and that we’d love to see in a production model.
Next month brings the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. We’ll have the highlights from Switzerland as soon as they’re available, but in the meantime, why not visit Keyes Lexus? After all, Los Angeles is so much warmer this time of year, and we have new Lexus models you can actually drive instead of just gazing at them longingly. We’re located at 5905 Van Nuys Blvd. in Van Nuys, CA.
