I only say Navigator Hybrid because the reviews are conveniently coming out a few weeks before the press night, PLUS, it's California - the Hybrid capital.

Just makes sense.

Lexus will unveil a more people-friendly version of its RX later this month.

Lexus has confirmed that it will finally debut its long-rumored RX three-row crossover later this moth at the Los Angeles auto show. Lexus is keeping the details of the three-row RX a secret until the start of the LA show, but the automaker says it will market the CUV as the RX 350L. Lexus plans to eventually introduce a hybrid version of the three-row known as the RX 450L, but that model won't be making an appearance at the LA show.

The extra space was gained simply by increasing the rear overhang. All that development time, and they couldn't even extend the wheelbase? Talk about phoning it in. I can't imagine it's going to help with the "challenged" styling, either.

Looks like Lincoln will have a huge presence at this show. I just registered for an employee viewing, where they claim they will reveal the "future of Lincoln."
How exciting.
are you going to LA or will there be be a "virtual presence" for employees?

So if Lincoln were to produce all these electric vehicles, who exactly would buy them? Lincoln is trying to increase customers, not lose them.

This is the perfect plan to send Lincoln and Ford directly to bankruptcy in 2 years...


Lincoln must enter the EV market with caution. Maybe an electric crossover based on the new Ford is perfect to try this market, until they can make profits with it.

I was told last year that one is in development.

^^I heard they were working on a coupe but that was before Hackett took the helm. Fingers crossed he doesn’t want to kill Lincoln before they have a chance.
