Good Stuff!

-Loved the highlight on the LX thread had about some critical flagship fxs that are missing and starting to appear on lesser models from the competition and how the LX has stayed true to form, but the space has shifted in the NADM industry. It was designed to be enjoyed in the backseat off the beaten path where roadside assistance does not exist.
-I dont think the TX is positioning itself to be neck and neck towards the X7s and GLS of the industry. Lexus's wants to carve out the niche that exists between a buyer who wants an X7 but can only afford an X5 (referring to their most volume trim models so not the expensive Ms and AMGs editions). Spacious, comfy couch soccer mom family hauler with a huge dash of lexus reliability. MDX, Q7, QX60 be damned.
-The final TX design was already out on display on EV day. Nothing too special, but it seems spacious if the outer design runs true with the interior.
