Lexus: new ICE SUVs coming up...

 

This is the new 3 row SUVs many Lexus dealers have been craving for.

Probably based on a stretched TNGA platform from the 2023 RX. And looking very similar.

It will obviously go against the Acura MDX and the new Infiniti QX60. But so far, it looks much more conservative and generic than its competition. 

At least the weirdo huge grille will be toned down, or maybe even gone. But so far, this does seem a bit of a lazy effort...




This one is still quite a mystery. It could be that "new small Crossover" some people have been talking about. Although it doesn't look much smaller than the already small UX.
I have heard it could be based on the new Corolla Cross. Since everything seems to be based on that same platform these days, why not.

I think this looks fine and better than the strange UX. Although I don't really see the point. Unless this replaces the UX. At least, the spindle grille seems to be mostly gone from this one...

If you look closely at this and the RX photo, it appears they’re obscuring the true grille elements with a crude paint out. You can see the edges of the actual grille poking through. Not sure why they felt the need to obscure the grille - maybe they’re still adjusting the final design.
Either way, it appears the SUVs will have some sort of grille element and not just sheetmetal.

Look like a Mitubishi especially at the greenhouse and front end

Such a good eye, you just highlighted something very, very key here.

This is either the TX or is it the next GX?
