FAW's Highlander to be called "皇冠-陆放"?

It will be pretty lame If this "Crown SUV" is simply a restyled Highlander for FAW.

Toyota has registered "crown kluger" and "crown vellfire" in China, indicating that FAW Toyota will realize the "crown" as a premium product brand series in China. But this has little to do with the true next-generation crown.
Chinese dealer representatives and others attending this web conference all saw the true next-generation Crown and were surprised at it. No matter what form it is, it will not be this "crown kluger".
The reason why FAW Toyota re-uses the "crown" name may be that the true next-generation crown will return to the Chinese market in the future.

It was mentioned in the same Best Car article with the IS F, LC F, LS F, NX, LF-1 and LX, but that piece stated that the new crown SUV would be built on TNGA-K.

Not sure if true, but as I pointed out earlier, that seems most logical...

Highlander XSE becomes the Crown... what a time to be alive.

They won't ruin a 60+ production years , Toyota never did it with the CoronaE to do it with the Crown

It will be on a either new FR chassis or one of the current

JDM doesn't have the Highlander/Kluger yet. So it's entirely possible the Crown Kluger IS the rumored GA-K Crown SUV. Meanwhile, the real Crown is probably still under development, even possibly as basis for the clean sheet FR platform or based on E-TNGA.

Dealers getting 'surprised' at the next-gen Crown is the main giveaway it won't be the Kluger, since the FAW Highlander program started in 2018.
