We’ve seen a few heavily disguised RX prototypes of the new Lexus RX last year, but this is the best look yet of the new luxury 4x4
The RX will be undergoing a major update for the 2009 model year, with production beginning on the revamped RX in late December of 2008, and an on-sale date of early spring of 2009. The 'new' RX will measure in a fraction larger. It will still offer a 3.5-litre V6, but we’re expecting a new 6-speed transmission to go along with the V6. A 400-horsepower hybrid powerplant is expected to following in 2010 or 2011. Overall, the RX will still look like an RX, but will be modernized to keep up with current styling trends.
