Alyc: Hey everyone, happy Family Day. Alyc Keith here once again with Lexus of Calgary. It’s time for our Car of the Week. A few things I wanted to address really quick before we get to the car of the week. A couple weeks ago on the flip chart behind us, we had some little humor we were trying to add by quoting the 1992 classic “Glengarry Glen Ross” movie, ABC, always be closing. I wanted everyone at home to know we were just trying to be funny. That’s not our philosophy here. Actually on the contrary, our philosophy and something that we follow is the Lexus spirit, which is right here. At Lexus, we try to treat all of our guests like we would as if we at our own home. So, that’s something that we always work on. Car of the Week, 2015 RC, the one that we did a couple weeks ago, that one is sold. The 2014 IS 350 which was a few weeks ago as well, is also sold. So we’re running out of cars. So our car of the week this week, we have a 2016 RX. Teegan, let’s go downstairs and take a look.
Okay, here we are with our car of the week, it’s a 2016 Lexus RX 350. This is the fourth generation RX, and this is the luxury package. The luxury package will give you the 20 inch rims and tires, as well as some other features which we’ll talk about inside. But while we’re outside, I wanted to talk about the triple beam LED headlamps, which are right here. Now a lotta people don’t know, but when you’re driving, each lamp will illuminate at a different angle, so you have more visual of the road when you’re driving. Also, there’s a cornering lamp, so when you’re taking a corner, it will shoot and illuminate the road for you when you’re taking corners. So great feature.
Before we go inside, let’s take a look under the hood. Okay, here we are under the hood on the RX 350. The 350 stands for the 3.5 liter V6 that you’re looking at right now. We’re talking about 295 horsepower that produces 268 pounds of torque. Very clean under the hood, just as we’re gonna find out in the cabin, it’s just as clean. Not much to see, a lot of sound dampening material here. If you are towing something at home, it does have towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. Let’s take a look at the inside.
Okay, we’re inside this mint condition 2016 RX luxury package. Couple things to talk about. The luxury package when it came out in 2016, priced for $64,871. We’re talking about 12.3 inch screen. We’re also gonna talk about the 20 inch wheels which you get which we already talked about on the exterior. Heated steering wheel. Backup camera, which is there. Rear sunshade. Teegan, if you wanna look to the back there, you can see if you have children, that’s a really good feature where you have sun shade in the back. And of course, we always talk about this, the the CarProof. Accident-free, one owner, low kilometer car. We only got 14,919 kilometers on this car. This vehicle is not gonna last.
