Toyota launched its Lexus luxury division in 1989 with the introduction of the LS 400 and ES 250. The Japanese automaker's new division sold more than 60,000 vehicles in its first year, and by 1991 had become the No. 1 luxury import line. In 1993 Lexus introduced the first certified pre-owned vehicle program in the industry, and in 1999 the division sold its 1 millionth vehicle in the U.S. — the year of its 10th anniversary in America. Lexus vehicles enjoy a well-earned reputation for quality and reliability, and the brand offers a red-carpet dealer experience. Lexus has been the nation's best-selling luxury brand for the past several years.
