2013 Lexus RX leaked via official brochure
The two new models are the facelifted 2013 Lexus RX and a brand new RX F Sport based on the RX 450h hybrid, both of which have now been revealed thanks to a leaked official brochure.
The brochure, which was first picked up by Minkara, shows the new 2013 RX from almost every angle and includes details on some of the options and pricing for the Japanese market.
We can clearly see that the latest facelift on the RX incorporates Lexus' aggressive new design language that debuted on the 2013 GS and has since evolved to suit the RX’s crossover body.
The new spindle grille on the RX 450h F Sport looks particularly menacing and provides the crossover with a much more manly appearance. Other elements that look set to appear on the F Sport RX including a new front lip spoiler, minor chassis tweaks, a sports steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and special badging.
No word yet if there will be any drivetrain upgrades though it’s possible that the 2013 RX 350 will be upgraded with the GS 350’s 306-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 and the 2013 RX 450h with the GS 450h’s 338-horsepower gasoline-electric combo.
