OK, maybe they said TX, but all we hear is Lexus Texas.
With Lexus’ spiffy compact crossover, the NX, officially unveiled and ready to start taking over this uber-fashionable segment, the Japanese automaker is already setting its sights on its next crossover target: a large, three-row, seven-seat crossover. The company has trademarked the Lexus TX name for this model, and while this reportedly has nothing to do with parent-company Toyota’s move to Dallas, we just can’t stop ourselves from saying "Lexus Texas."
The TX model would not replace either of Lexus’ current three-row models, the GX460 and LX 570, but rather provide a more car-like, seven-passenger experience than those truckish SUVs do. Meanwhile, it still is not clear whether the LexusTexas will share its platform with the RWD IS/GS sedans (like its RX350 brother), or utilize the FWD platform from the Toyota Highlander.
