Even though there is certainly not significantly we can make out from the teaser further than the anticipated Lexus styling cues, which monitor with the recently released new-generation NX compact SUV (which arrived for 2022), we do foresee the crossover will acquire a large amount beneath the surface. Search for a swap to Toyota/Lexus’s most recent TNGA architecture, the adoption of the exact dazzlingly significant touchscreen screen from the smaller NX, probably some of that SUV’s newer and scaled-down engines to augment or substitute the outgoing RX’s V-6, and possibly even the NX’s retractable digital door handles.
Anticipate a hybrid to once again be aspect of the mix, but, like the NX, it is entirely achievable the RX could adopt a plug-in hybrid variation in addition to the demanding gas-electric powered hybrid solution it is really offered for the past 15 many years or so. A extra integrated 3rd-row seating option—currently relegated to an oddly stretched RX L product (pictured in the gallery over)—is one more risk, even though not fully important provided the all-new larger sized, comprehensive-sizing three-row Lexus has hinted is coming shortly.
Other than the graphic of the new RX’s grille and headlight, Lexus unveiled only that the new SUV will debut at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time on May perhaps 31, 2022.
