2016 Lexus RX Heading to New York

by SpeedLux

Do you happen to be quite a huge fan of the automotive marquee known as Lexus? Yes, we are talking about the luxury division that belongs to the Japanese automotive marquee, Toyota. Some reports have recently occurred in terms of Lexus and its upcoming RX model. It is said that the next generation Lexus RX model will be coming to the New York Auto Show event, which is quite imminent.

It is true that no official confirmation has come from either Toyota or Lexus at this moment. Nevertheless, as reported by Edmunds, the revised crossover from the Japanese automotive brand will be headed to dealerships no later than this year itself. The car is also reported to be coming with the platform that the Japanese automaker uses for the Toyota Camry.

Just as a kind reminder, before this information occurs, there had also been some spy photo shoots available. These photo shoots depict that the new RX crossover model from Lexus will be offering quite an evolutionary design to the customers. To begin with, the vehicle will sport a prominent spindle front grille. This one will most likely be flanked by a set of headlamps that come with a sweptback design. In addition to that, customers can also expect dual exhaust pipes and a sporty looking body, which may well remind us of the Lexus NX, an entry level model.

Official powertrain is still a mystery as of the time this article is written. Nonetheless, expect the car to pack a 3.5L V6 engine under the hood. If this is the case, power will stay at the mark of approximately 270 bhp. After all, this is the very engine that is used on the predecessor. Yet, a change is probably in the plan when it comes to the transmission. Instead of the 6-speed automatic gearbox used on the predecessor, the 2016 Lexus RX is most likely to count on an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
