Redesigned 2016 Lexus RX To Be Announced: NY Auto Show

2016 Lexus RX Sadly Not Announced In Detroit

The current Lexus RX (3rd-generation) was debuted back in November, 2008, now more than 6 years passed and it is due for a renewal. It has been rumored that Lexus would debut the redesigned 4th-gen RX at the 2015 Detroit auto show which is ongoing this week, but sadly the debut did not happen.


However this is understandable – because the Detroit auto show is more focused on performance models, not for soccer mom vehicles or daily commute cars. But looks like the 2015 New York auto show, which is going to take place this April, is a good time for the new RX to bow to the public.

Our source informed us today that Lexus management has decided to unveil the 2016 RX, which is a completely-new design, during the NY auto show.

Before knowing any detail specs of the 2016 RX, some clues we can draw from the below spy shots are:

– it will be powered by a V6 engine with dual exhaust tips;
– Aisin 8-speed automatic transmission will be standard across the product line;
– Judging from the slop of the tail lift-gate, it looks like there is no enough space for the 3rd-row seat; this means it is highly possible that the new RX will still be a two-row-seat CUV

We will keep you updated once we get more information about the 2016 RX.
