The 2023 Lexus RX Teased, debuted in early June

Fifth generation Lexus RX It will make its debut on the east coast of Australia on May 31 at 8pm New York time or on June 1 at 10am.

If the latest Lexus models do anything, the new RX will have a tone-down version of the signature styling elements. It should also feature smooth creases and rounder surfing.

On the front we can see that the RX will hold the company’s spindle grille design, albeit with a non-functional body-color top section. It is flanked by headlights with brand L-shaped driving lights swoosh.

It is not clear how many seats the fifth-generation RX will have. The current RX has five seats as standard, but buyers can opt for the RX L, which has a long rear overhang to accommodate the third row seats.

A report last month indicated that the company plans to launch a new model called the TX to sit on top of the RX. The TX will be built in Indiana alongside an expanded version of the Highlander, which we know as Kluger.

The TX, as well as the Grand Highlander, is said to feature a long wheelbase and up to eight seats across three rows.

We don’t know if the Grand Highlander or the TX will be produced on the right-hand drive.

The interior will probably look like a second generation NX. It will probably be – joy! – See the death of many disgusting trackpad-style infotainment setups for the NX’s 14.0-inch touchscreen.

Drive trains offered in RX are also unknown The current model is available with three choices: a 175kW 2.0-liter turbo on the RX300, a 216kW 3.5-liter V6 on the RX350 and a 230kW 3.5-liter V6 hybrid on the RX450h.

Although a hybrid is practically guaranteed to be part of the fifth-generation range, it is a 179kW 2.5-liter four-cylinder system that can be used on the NX currently, not the current car’s V6 drivetrain.

The naturally ambitious V6 could also go the way of Dodo, with the 3.5-liter mill disappearing from the Highlander range in the United States.

The smooth-running six-cylinder in the Land of the Free will be replaced by a 198kW / 419Nm 2.4-liter turbocharged four-pot for the 2023 model year.

With the smaller NX, which recently entered its second generation, the RX forms the volume-selling core of the Lexus brand.
