How smart is your car? Maybe if you’re lucky it can tell you when it needs maintenance and remember your seat position. At McGrath Lexus of Westmont there’s now a whole new kind of smart car on the lot. Vehicles equipped with the Lexus’ G Force with Artificial Intelligence system are so smart they will continue learning. What they’re learning over time is exactly the way that you drive.
These vehicles remember your style and seek to please, providing mechanical responses that create the performance you’re looking for. For example, Lexus’ Electronically Controlled Transmission with Intelligence, or ECT-I, provides smooth gradual shifts in line with your input on the throttle. In addition to that, it actually learns from how you drive and matches the shift timing to your style.
Now, the Lexus G Force Artificial Intelligence system, which is set to debut on the new 2014 Lexus IS 350 this summer, will bring a whole other level of smarts to make driving better. This system does some pretty remarkable things. For example, when cornering in SPORT mode, the Lexus IS 350 will stay in a single gear to avoid surprise shifts.
“Sporty drivers want to preserve a level of control when cornering,” says Paul Williamsen, national manager of global training for Lexus International. “Anything that upsets the ideal balance, even slightly, such as an unplanned automatic-transmission shift, can disrupt the driver’s cornering line.” On top of holding steady through the corners, the Lexus IS 350 will even start to learn your driving style so it can choose the right gear to hold. This may or may not be the same gear that it would choose for another driver, so you are practically customizing your own driving experience as you go, with the G Force Artificial Intelligence learning and adjusting for your preferences.
