The next-generation Lexus NX was spotted testing as a disguised prototype a few weeks ago, followed by some unauthorized renderings.Lexus has now revealed the first official teaser photograph of the model, after several reports.
The picture clearly shows the LED strip linking the taillights at the back, as well as confirmation that the Lexus emblem will be replaced by the brand's name written as a word. The sleek roof spoiler with integrated third brake light is also revealed on the new NX. We already know that the new NX will not be a significant shift from the current model. LED daytime running lights will now be incorporated into the primary headlight units rather than the bumper.
In terms of underpinnings, we anticipate that the new NX will be built on a modified version of Toyota's TNGA-K platform, which is shared with the current RAV4. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine from the RAV4 is slated to power the entry-level NX. Meanwhile, the more premium models may have the Camry's 3.5-liter V6 as an available powerplant. While the four-cylinder engine produces about 200 hp the potential V6 model may have more than 300 hp.
This initial teaser reveals that the new NX will be unveiled in its entirety on June 12 of this year.
