Rumors about Lexus’s production of a 7-seater RX midsize crossover version has been flying for years. Now, the rumors finally come true as the Lexus RX 350L 2018 will be launched at the 2017 Los Angeles auto show.
According to the latest car news, Lexus unveiled just a snippet of information about the all-new model, but it confirmed that the RX 350L 2018 will have 3 rows of seating.

In fact, a 3-row crossover has been missing in Lexus’s range. Now with the appearance of the Lexus RX 350L 2018, the Japanese luxury car brand could with confidence challenge other contenders in this segment, including the BMW X5, Volvo XC90, Acura MDX, Audi Q7, upcoming X7 and more.

The RX L comes to the automotive market as an appeasement for Lexus dealers since they have been yelling for a bigger crossover of the brand for many years. However, its arrival seems to be not soon enough when sales of the RX had fallen over the past year by October, while the aging GX which is a 3-row body-on-frame SUV gets an increase by 10.7% in its total sales.
Many think that the idea of lengthening the RX was impossible. Therefore, it is doubted that the crossover may get a longer wheelbase or be added with something else under the frame.
As revealed by some teased images, the taillights are likely the same as ones on the current RX’s but its platform is still a huge question.
