    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.

    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.
