Report: The next Lexus RX to surface in New York

A previous report from Edmunds recently claimed that Lexus was going to reveal a new RX successor at Detroit. However, this was not true and a new follow-up report from Edmunds confirms that it’ll actually be revealed at New York in April.

The RX competes with the Acura MDX, the new Audi Q7, the BMW X5, the Lincoln MKX, and the Volvo XC90 and will be entering its fourth generation when the new version arrives.

Not much is known, but the new RX shouldn’t really stray from its tried, tested, and true formula since it is by far, the best-selling crossover ever. That means we can expect the usual offerings of a V6 and a hybrid model, though the addition of the Lexus NX 200t’s new 2.0L turbo-four cylinder should also make its way under the hood as an option.

Rumors also speculate the new RX could grow in size to offer a third-row of seating, though this has not been confirmed. Should this happen however, it would be the first major change to the RX since the model has always remained to be a five-seater since day one.
