Toyota LQ Concept Car Looks to the Future

Autonomous driving and artificial intelligence are no longer material from science fiction novels – and Toyota is ready to highlight how much this advancement can improve everyday life.

The Japanese carmaker recently introduced the all-new Toyota LQ Concept Car. Displayed earlier this year at the “Future Expo” special exhibition of the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, this concept car looks to take the bond between car and driver to an entirely new – and more emotional – level.

“With the LQ, we are proud to propose a vehicle that can deliver a personalized experience, meet each driver’s unique mobility needs, and build an even stronger bond between car and driver,” said Daisuke Ido, LQ development leader.

The Toyota LQ combines automated driving options with “Yui,” an artificial intelligence-powered interactive agent designed to discover the driver’s habits, learn from them, and provide a personalized driving experience for each individual driver. Yui looks to engage the driver in a variety of ways, including interactive voice communications, lighting, fragrances, air conditioning, and in-seat functions that reduce stress and increase the driver’s alertness behind the wheel.

The AI will also choose the music you want to play based on the driving environment, and will even give you real-time information on topics you’re interested in. With this driver-focused, emotion-based AI interface, Toyota is changing the way we think of our vehicles, bringing us into the future of transportation.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Earns Ninth Ideal Vehicle Award

Jeep Grand Cherokee | Spirit Lake, IA

For the ninth consecutive year, the Grand Cherokee has outclassed every other midsize SUV in the AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Awards. 

Approximately 50,000 new vehicle owners who purchased their vehicle toward the end of 2018 were surveyed by AutoPacific at the beginning of 2019. People answer questions based on their own opinions of the vehicle after having driven it for at least 90 days, and the awards are allotted out based on customer satisfaction per the surveys.

AutoPacific president George Patterson had this to say about the awards: “The Ideal Vehicle Awards recognize vehicles that best meet their owner’s expectations and desires.”

The excellent Jeep® Grand Cherokee quality helps it fare so well in the AutoPacific competition; it is uniquely customizable with four available 4×4 systems and a host of other features suited to both driving on the road and off. Selec-Terrain traction management system is unique in its class and delivers an optimal driving experience across a multitude of terrains.

Receiving awards based solely on customer satisfaction is a huge honor for Jeep®, and Motor Inn of Spirit Lake is proud to continue to, as Patterson says, to sell vehicles that are “just right” for owners.
