The next-generation 2023 Lexus RX has officially been teased, and it is set to make its debut on June 1. The brand’s best-selling model will finally receive an overhaul, about seven years since the current generation model was first released in 2015, which then received a facelift in 2019.
Based on the teaser image, the 2023 Lexus RX will most likely feature an evolutionary redesign. This means that it probably won’t look too different from the current RX, albeit with significantly less clutter and more streamlined surfaces. This is basically the same development process that the all-new NX undertook, wherein its design is largely similar to its predecessor, but it now looks cleaner and sleeker than before.
From these photos, the all-new Lexus RX will feature a cleaner interpretation of the brand’s spindle grille, along with a new set of LED headlights. We have no clue of what the rest of the body will look like, but we expect it to feature some of the new design details that will be a signature of every new Lexus moving forward, namely the full-width LED taillights and the “LEXUS” script placed at its tailgate instead of the “L” emblem.
No information yet has been revealed about its interior design, but what we can confirm is that the 2023 Lexus RX will also ditch the Lexus Remote Touch touchpad-based infotainment system in favor of the new Lexus Interface touchscreen-based infotainment. Expect of course a great-sounding Mark Levinson sound system with it, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
Powertrain details are also unknown as of the moment, but with Lexus doubling down further on hybrids, we expect an evolution of the current model’s V6 hybrid powertrain as well as even a plug-in hybrid powertrain with a bigger battery and longer pure electric range. An electric version of the RX probably won’t debut anytime soon, so if you want an all-electric Lexus SUV, then the recently-unveiled RZ will be your choice.
The 2023 Lexus RX will finally be revealed on June 1, which means there’s only a two-week wait before we get to see the future of the brand’s best-selling vehicle.
