Of course, we expect the Lexus RX Hybrid to make a return as well, possibly ushering in the first use of the turbocharged engine with an electrified drivetrain for the model. The smaller NX Hybrid uses a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder with electric motors, both in the NX 350h and the plug-in NX 450h+. We predict the RX will also get a range-topping PHEV model, though it’s tough to say how much power it will produce. Inside, the RX should get the same 12.3-inch touchscreen as the NX.
As for the three-row RX L, it will likely be killed off in favor of a brand-new crossover model called the TX. The TX will reportedly debut alongside a new Toyota Grand Highlander, and sit below an upcoming next-generation GX in the Lexus lineup.
