Nice proportions and detailing overall. Looks too concepty to really hold much weight though...
So did the Lexus LC, yet, unlike 99% of brands, Lexus kept the concepot pretty much intact. Now if they can pull the same trick here, and put in the LC's interior, that would makle it probably the most desirable CUV.

This shot does not stun (at least not in the positive sense):

That was my immediate reaction as well. Personally I don't find this attractive at all.

The LX is well known ( in the middle east) for being a big badass BOF SUV so I would wager this to receive a new moniker.

It looks very RWD, GA-L platform maybe?

The problem with the GX and the LX is that neither were designed as premium vehicles, but were tarted up for Lexus. I say design an RWD/AWD replacement for both that is worthy of competing with Mercedes and BMW.

Indeed, Lexus needs no rebadge. And they can keep the Land Cruisers under their own, well known name, that likely also has more recognition with those "go anywhere" fans the LCs have all around the world.

The LX is a more luxurious and competent off-road car than the Mercedes G Wagon. There is no car on the planet more tarted up than the G Wagon, and even with the latest facelift, it is not a better vehicle overall.

We aren't discussing off-road capabilities is the first issue that you ignore. The second issue you ignore is that the GX and LX are not designed to have the refinement of a premium. They are rough-and-tumble adventure specials masquerading as premiums. The rough-mannered trucks they are come through all too plainly. They simply aren't of the proper caliber to be called premium. The quicker Lexus gets something that has the proper refinement, the better.
