Lexus Considering Three-Row Crossover
With only one CUV offered of the US market, the dominant RX, Lexus says one of its body-on-fame SUVs (the LX or GX) could be converted to unibody platforms for future government-imposed fuel-economy regulations and a three-row CUV as well.
"In general, CUVs of any size are becoming a bigger force in the industry. So as we sell more products globally, I think that could lead to new products for us," Lexus vice-president of marketing Brian Smith told WardsAuto. "In the future, if we could do a 3-row unibody (utility vehicle), I think that’s what consumers would want to see".
Smith added that Lexus has no plans to introduce a diesel powertrain in the United States anytime soon.
