What that says to me is that LS/LC are dead. IS can only live on the Mazda platform, maybe IS will be the fruit of similar development strategy as GT86/Subaru and Supra/BMW.What about the rumors of a Crown CUV? Is that happening too?
It seems strange to me that ES and Crown are going to be so closely related... maybe it will work, but in a world with falling sedan sales, Toyota just had to kill the Avalon. I guess basing it on GA-K makes it easier to justify.

What you saw in that render is the Crown Cross. In the article it said it will just be the normal Crown fastback with 25mm (1") lift and black plastic cladding.What about the rumors of a Crown CUV? Is that happening too?
The way I see it, they will have very good FSP PHVs using T24+E-Axle in the 300-400kW range. But they don't have the necessary components to make true F cars with 500+kW. To be fair nowadays most people buy the low-grade M/AMG/S because true M/AMG/RS are way out of reach. Similarly FSP will be where most of the money is.I think so. I just don't see how the IS 500 showcases the future of F, it is more like F's last gasp of breath. Must have died of covid too.
just a name for FT‘s Sienna…Granvia as flagship is a head-scratcher. They already have Sienna and Vellfire for full-size minivans. Granvia is based on utilitarian HiAce so its ride quality will be worse than either of those.
Unless the plan is no Alphard/Vellfire so they don't cannabalize LM.
You're sure about that? What I saw is gen 15.and crown is the 16th generation…
