The LA Car Show Gets A First Look At The Lexus RX 350L

The L.A. Car Show attendees got to be the first ones to check out the Lexus RX 350L. Families will now be able to enjoy more space with their luxury utility vehicle thanks to the new three-row Lexus RX L models. The RX created the luxury crossover segment 20 years ago and has reigned supreme as the most popular luxury utility vehicle on the market. The 2018 RX 350L and RX 450hL models retain their stylish figures, but now offer the choice of six or seven-passenger capability.

With the new RX L models, Lexus drivers will now have the option of a third row without compromising the sleek styling and easy maneuverability that they have long valued. With help through the mastery of vehicle packaging, Lexus extended the body length 4.3 inches (110 mm) at the rear and used a steeper tailgate window angle than on the two-row models – ensuring good headroom for third-row passengers.

The standard seven-seat version uses a 40/20/40 split bench-type second row seat. Access to the third row is made easy with the touch of a lever that slides and folds the second seat forward. The available six-seat configuration features second-row captain’s chairs that make third-row ingress/egress easier with “walk-in” convenience.

Lexus designed the third row of the RX L models to offer the same comfort and luxury as in the middle row. The positioning of the second row is slightly higher than the third row, creating more foot room for rear passengers. Standard leather-trimmed upholstery is standard for the first and second rows, in the choice of Black, Stratus Gray, Parchment or Noble Brown. A tri-zone climate control system gives third-row passengers separate heating and air conditioning vents, and for convenience, a power-folding third-row seat and power tailgate are both standard on the RX L models.

Details that enhance three-row versatility in the RX L models include a flat load floor behind the folded third-row, two third-row cupholders, an easily stowable tonneau and covered slide rails. The RX L cabin is designed with impeccable details, including form-fitting seats, and the available richly finished wood trim (Premium and Luxury Packages) that curves gently up from the center console toward the glove box.

Available interior ornamentation includes Matte Bamboo, Espresso Walnut, Matte Linear Dark Mocha Wood, Striated Black Trim (standard) and laser-etched Gray Sapele Wood with Aluminum. For the Striated Black Trim on the base model, a glossy black three-dimensional embossed pattern is applied to create a high-quality film design with a sense of depth.

An available full-color Heads-Up Display (HUD) incorporated into the design of the instrument panel can project key information on the windshield to help the driver focus on the road.

Man Crates Is Your One Stop Shop For The Holidays

You know when people say this store or site is your one stop shop for the holidays? Well most of the stores don’t fit that bill. One site that does is mancrates.com. From sports to fishing to beer to food anything that you can think of that you might like or your friends might like is right there.

The good folks over at Man Crates sent me a 49ers Gridiron Crate. Now just because my team is not doing well this year and is in the rebuilding stage doesn’t mean that I still can’t support my team or show off my team pride.

When Man Crates dropped off my order right to my doorstep I opened up the box to see a sturdy wood crate with their logo on the crate. I used the crowbar that was given to me by Man Crates to see what was inside my 9ers crate. As I opened up the crate I saw a bunch of items that will make game day that much better.

Inside the Gridiron Crate were four brilliant looking pint glasses with the 49ers logo on them as well as some etched footballs. These glasses are officially licensed by Boelter Brands. There were four Turf Coaster/Bottle Openers that will make you use a coaster without being asked over and over again!

What do you need when you are watching your team play on TV? Food of course. Man Crate also added some game day grub in the crate too! In my crate were a 5 ounce bag of pistachios, a 4 ounce bag of Corn Nuggets: BBQ flavor, a 3.25 ounce bag of Beer Nuts: Bar Mix and a 12 ounce bag of CB’s In-Shell Ballpark Style Jumbo Peanuts.

Man Crates is a great way to show the ones on your list you know what they are into and that you care to send them the very best this holiday season. You can also remember Man Crates for other special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries or a new promotion at work.

If sports is not your thing check out the different types of crates they offer. Check out some of the themes they have below:

Folding Knife Making Kit

Hickory Grilling Kit

The Sriracha Crate

Personalized Oktoberfest Stein

The Bacon Crate

Whiskey Appreciation Crate

Beard Wrangler Mini Crate

The cool thing is that they have a wide selection of themes and there is not just once price point. There is a Man Crate for every budget. For more on the which Man Crate you want on your list or to give the perfect gift go to mancrates.com!

Orphan Barrel Entraps Us With Latest Whiskey

Orphan Barrel just came out with a new release. It is the brand’s newest and arguably most unique release, Entrapment. Just in time for the holidays, this new marque is the eleventh release from the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company and the first Canadian whisky to be released in the portfolio. As you may know, Crown Royal is one of the most significant growth drivers of Canadian whiskey and leads the category.

Entrapment came to be in 1992, as part of a batch of Crown Royal Deluxe that was left in the barrel at Crown Royal’s distillery in Gimli, Manitoba for 25 years. Sometimes when using full blends of Crown Royal, there are small quantities of barrels that didn’t fit into the full blend – and Entrapment was born.

The mash bill for Entrapment is 97 percent corn and three percent malted barley. Beginning with a vanilla, toffee and a delicate toasted oak scent, Entrapment tastes light and creamy with hints of tobacco and walnut. The finish is warm with notes of dried fruits reminiscent of plums and raisins.

Entrapment’s design captures the promise of adventure and freedom that symbolize the brand’s outlaw orphan and is available in limited markets at a suggested retail price of $149.99.

You Need To Check Out The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus

Lincoln Motor Company recently unveiled news and images for the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus. The new Lincoln Nautilus debuts with Lincoln-first technology that inspires driver confidence, like all-new lane-centering feature that helps subtly maintain the vehicle’s position in its lane.

The Nautilus is designed to build on the momentum of Lincoln’s best-selling midsize luxury SUV by offering enhanced features for a smoother, more connected drive, and even more standard ownership services. Catering to the desire of luxury clients for personalized vehicles, Gala, an opulent new Lincoln Black Label theme, debuts on Lincoln Nautilus, taking its cues from the world of haute couture at New York’s Met Gala.

The Nautilus is the successor to Lincoln MKX and joins the recently unveiled 2019 MKC, the elegant Continental, the all-new Navigator, and the stylish MKZ for a lineup of vehicles instantly recognizable as Lincoln.

“With the introduction of Nautilus, Lincoln has a strong, distinctive portfolio with a common and recognizable identity,” said Lincoln President Kumar Galhotra. “We’re excited to add Nautilus to our Lincoln family of luxury SUVs, along with a new name that better reflects the ideas and attitudes of our clients.”

Lincoln’s midsize SUV continues to attract new clients to the brand, with a conquest rate of nearly 40 percent. New clients are crossing over to Lincoln from Cadillac, Lexus and more. Sales continue to be strong, and the vehicle is on track to deliver its best sales year since its introduction in 2007. Tasteful design, exceptional craftsmanship and room for up to five passengers make it a popular choice for clients in the market for a luxury crossover vehicle.

Available Ultra Comfort seats can be adjusted up to 22 ways for personalized comfort, providing lumbar massage designed to reduce fatigue. Developed with input from orthopedic surgeons, this feature is especially beneficial on long trips or while waiting in traffic. Heated and cooled seats are available on the Reserve model. Available 13-speaker and 19-speaker Revel® audio systems offer the ultimate sound experience to add to the soothing environment.

A sleek console serves to open up the cabin, while the sophisticated push-button gear shift integrates seamlessly with classic knobs and buttons. A concealed wireless charging pad allows compatible smartphones to stay connected, and puts an end to the hassle of tangled cords. A large center touch screen serves as the portal to standard SYNC® 3 with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, enabling clients to manage audio, phone, navigation and more either from that point or steering wheel-mounted controls.

The leather-wrapped, hand-stitched steering wheel is mounted ahead of a 12.3-inch fully configurable digital instrument cluster that displays easy-to-read driver information crisply and clearly.

Lincoln Nautilus moves to an all turbocharged engine lineup for 2019, offering a powerful 2.7-liter engine that delivers an estimated 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. Power is delivered courtesy of three technologies – turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing.

A standard estimated 245-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is efficient and smooth in operation. Both engines include standard Auto Start-Stop capability, plus an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Lincoln continues to increase its focus on service offerings that provide an effortless ownership experience, like standard Pickup and Delivery for the new Nautilus. Lincoln is the only luxury automaker to provide Pickup and Delivery as a standard service for all its vehicles to save clients time and effort.

Additionally, starting Jan. 1, 2018, new Lincoln owners will receive a six-month complimentary CLEAR membership, allowing them to speed through security at participating airports and major arenas nationwide. Lincoln Black Label members will receive a 12-month complimentary membership.

Ease of ownership is also enabled through the Lincoln Way™ app. Lincoln Way allows clients to start, lock, unlock and locate their new Nautilus, as well as schedule remote starts to enable the vehicle to heat or cool to comfortable levels. Owners can use the app to monitor fuel levels, and check tire pressures and battery status. Lincoln Way also allows clients to make monthly vehicle payments or pay for parking.

The new 2019 Lincoln Nautilus will be available at Lincoln dealers this summer.
