Lexus is planning to release a redesigned RX-5 and NX-5 models in 2019, but not all of them will get the “Lexus RX” badge, reports AutoBlog.
While some RX-6 and RX-7 models will get that badge, other RX-models will not, according to the site.
This means that some RX7 models might be in for a minor refresh.
The RX-10 model will be the most obvious example of a refresh, as it’s the most popular RX-model in the world, with more than 5.3 million units sold.
Lexus will probably rebrand it as the RX-15 or RX-20, but that name is not coming to the RX lineup.
In fact, Lexus could also change the name of the RX line to something else entirely, such as the NX-100, according the site, which is the company’s most popular forum for the brand.
The new RX-series will likely be the last RX- series model that will receive a brand-new engine, according AutoBlog, and that’s why Lexus said it would “re-engineer” the RX models.
Lexis RX-200 and RX.250 models will receive the same engine as the current models, and will be available with either a 6-cylinder or a 7-cyl.
The RX-100 and RX500 will be equipped with the new 6- and 7-liter engines, respectively, according Lexus.
Other RX- models might receive a few changes to make them more appealing to younger buyers, but most likely the new RX series will remain unchanged.
Lexuses RX-class crossover, which has been around for a few years, will be redesigned to be more appealing for younger buyers.
The crossover will get a new roofline, and the exterior design will be slightly different.
Lexus is reportedly planning to launch a new RX crossover, the RX300, in 2019.
The model, which will have a more compact chassis, will come with a 6.0-liter turbocharged V-8 engine and will go for $30,000.
The Lexus brand will remain intact with the RX400, RX300 and RX300SE, according, but Lexus might also re-engineered the RX series.
The next Lexus model will likely see a re-design as well, with a new name and new engine.
Lexys RX-Class SUV will likely receive a new engine, the Lexus S550.
The car is expected to get a 6,500-horsepower turbocharged inline-four, which Lexus says is “a major upgrade over the current S550,” according to AutoBlog’s report.
