I don't see how 'redesigning the entire lineup in five years' is anything remarkable. I mean, their entire lineup should have been 'entirely redesigned in five years' starting from 2017. Toyota's own lineup in most major markets is already 80% TNGA, in just four years.

well, it will be redesigned in 5 years starting from 2017 :)

What he is talking about is not TNGA, but that in 2025 everything will be redesigned compared to now, including current TNGA vehicles. So UX, ES, LS, LC will also be redesigned.

I’ve been looking for how old out current range is and for Europe (first MY) we have:

CT, 2011 (9 years)
UX, 2019 (1 year)
IS, 2014 (6 years)
RC, 2015 (5 years)
ES, 2019 (1 year)
NX, 2015 (5 years)
RX, 2016 (4 years)
LC, 2018 (2 years)
LS, 2018 (2 years)

I won’t say they’re competitive as they’re because they are not, but only CT is for too long on production, the next ones (IS/NX) have been rumored to be replaced next year (with some contradictions for IS), making them have 7 (IS) and 6 (NX) product cycle lifetime, which is average. To be honest, I was thinking it was worse...

For North America it’s a bit worse, you don’t have our last CT facelift, but:

GX, 2010 (10 years)
LX, 2008 (12 years)

So yes, Lexus really needs to start launching all-new models to replace core models (IS/NX/GX/LX) and to decide once for all what’s going to happen with our CT.

Current non-TNGA RX will stay with us for a bit longer, and after driven a pre-facelifted as new during December, it still is a truly experience amazing car.
