    Leaked: Lexus RX Refresh

    If there is one important vehicle in Lexus’ lineup, that vehicle would be the RX. The RX is Lexus’ top selling model for the past few years. The current RX has been around since 2009 and Lexus is getting ready to introduce a refreshed 2013 RX which has been revealed via a leaked Japanese brochure.

    The new RX falls in line with the brand's latest design language - with the predator mouth grill seen on the GS taking center stage. Also, the RX gets reshaped headlamps with a strip of LEDs flanking each side and new wheels.

    Also coming to the RX is a new F-Sport package which includes a new front bumper, honeycomb grille, rear spoiler, bigger wheels, tinted lamps, and sportier trim on the inside.

    The new RX will revealed sometime later this year.

    WOW, looks better than their current dull RX, but is the Predator look really the best way to go as the new design language for them as a luxury product line?

    I think they will scare off their conservative dull base of customers. :P

    I've always thought looking at a production Lexus is exactly the same as being in a coma and this is no different.

    The idea of an "F-Sport" package on the RX is hilarious. Like a stupid bodykit and some carbon fiber trim is somehow going to raise my pulse back to a healthy, responsive level.

    The new Lexus face is unattractive. This is not an improvement.

    Agreed, that new GS is horrible looking. This is sort of like how Acura hijacked all their cars with horrbile front end styling a few years ago. Lexus seems to be hitting everything with the ugly stick, because they want dramatic, but don't understand design.

    RX270?

    Japanese only model.. Uses a four-cylinder engine

    Also very gutless if you ever been in one. It is equal IMO to a basic Chevy. Crazy how they will hold a name to a cheap car rather than have the cheap model in he Toyota name plate.

    • Have to say that this is one of the best write ups I have seen on a state-by-state ability to see what your state tax credit is for EVs. Every electric vehicle tax credit rebate available, by state (electrek.co)
    • Yes the Kent IKEA is still there, none in the north end. I agree with you, hate the maze, hate the cheap stuff they sell, was not willing to wait in a long line to try the food, so who knows if I would like it. Over all, my son likes IKEA and I think it is because it is cheap. I would say Acura took till 2022 to fix their issues with the RDX and MDX.  My sister inlaw, wifes sister has a 2019 of each. She drives the MDX and her husband drives the RDX. Both have had all types of electrical issues, water leak issues and drivability issues that took till this year to resolve. Both are retired and on a fixed income now otherwise they say they would trade them in on something else, not an Acura. Maybe they are just unlucky, but I will say that I think Acura built a name and then went cheap to maximize profits from the line.
    • I would like to introduce you to the 2019 Acura RDX: the one a lot of people say to stay away from.  It took Acura at least a year to correct those issues in time for the 2021 model.
    • First of all, 800V is well supported for those fast chargers and EVs that support it as they do charge in a fraction of the time and weight less than a 400V system. Yes, 800V costs more now, but like all things, economy of scale brings it down. GM, Porsche, VW, Audi and BMW have all acknowledge it as well as Kia and Hyundai and why Honda went with the Ultium 800V system for their EVs. The reason the Equinox will start around $30,000 is due to the mass production bringing costs down. As far as Charging at home, yes if you're only going CHEAP with 110V charging, you will be lucky to pull down 10kWh charging. If you have a proper 220V charger installed, they are 50 AMPs and do charge much, much faster. Yes, there are 220V 38/40 AMP chargers, but the ones from the OEMs as well as ChargePoint that are sold or included are all 220V 50 AMP chargers. Even Amazon sells them, but you get what you pay for. This is in its infancy and so nothing is perfect yet, but we have specs to get there and those that do invest get out of it what they expected. Those that go cheap, well, your mileage will vary.
