Lexus is set to launch several new SUV models over the next few years, and a Detailed Reddit article claims to know a lot about what’s in store, from redesigns of existing models to new additions to the lineup. We generally take these kinds of rumors with a grain of salt, but given that Lexus has registered official US trademarks for many of these new nameplates, we believe there is some credibility to the information presented. . So here’s a look at what might happen to your local Lexus showroom in the near future.
Lexus RZ450e: it’s electric
Lexus has already confirmed that it will launch its first electric vehicle soon and introduced a concept called the LF-Z Electrified that foreshadows this upcoming EV crossover. The company has registered a trademark for the name RZ450e, and we expect this model to look like the concept car and have a dual-engine all-wheel drive powertrain.
Lexus TX: Three-row SUV
Lexus’ current three-row crossover offering is the RX L, which was an interim solution that simply filled a small third row of seats in a slightly larger version of the existing RX. It would be replaced by a new model called TX, and we found Lexus brands for TX350 and TX500h that suggest it could potentially offer both gasoline and hybrid V6 versions. We can expect it to feature a longer wheelbase than the RX this time around to provide better space on the return. Its style can be taken from the LF-1 Limitless concept of many years ago.
Lexus LX600: Fantasy Land Cruiser
Toyota is not bringing the latest version of the Land Cruiser to the United States, but Lexus is considering selling its high-end sibling here again. We’ve already seen a teaser for the new LX, and a trademark filing for the LX600 confirms Reddit’s rumor that its numbers will increase over the current LX570. We believe it will use the same 3.4-liter twin-turbo V6 as the Land Cruiser, and the post on Reddit claims it will offer a hybrid version with a more luxurious VIP finish.
Lexus GX550: off-road credibility
The rumors about the next-generation GX SUV will thrill off-road enthusiasts. Bearing the GX550 name, the new model would emphasize its 4×4 image with the aim of competing with the Land Rover Defender and the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. It is likely to continue to use the body-on-frame platform. and could offer similar styling embellishments and accessories as the 2019 GXOR Concept (pictured). Like the LX, its only engine offering will likely be the twin-turbo 3.4-liter V6.
