I know their will be a 4 cylinder hybrid engine.
A 6 cylinder engine would be great, not sure if they'll release a 6 cyl model. Still need more info on the NX, it's limited at the moment.

Too bad they never mentioned anything on performance SUV's for the future.
it would be a good idea.
Give people an option aside from what Germans are offering

I think they should have a performance SUV

An actual F SPORT SUV

not a F trim.

But that is just me.. It would maybe take some sales away from the QX70 and Cayenne? X6?

But I know its a small market.. But Lexus seems to be pretty aggressive nowadays.

BTW the Lexus NX is unofficially confirmed with the same engine as the ES300h

ES300h’s hybrid drivetrain employs two electric motors—referred to as the MG1 and MG2 in Lexus jargon—in addition to the 156-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. The MG1 is a motor/generator that operates primarily as an engine-driven power source for the batteries; it’s also used to start the internal-combustion engine after Eco-mode-prompted shutdown at stoplights. The MG2 handles the electric portion of propulsion and switches into generator mode during periods of deceleration to provide regenerative braking. Lexus doesn’t quote power and torque figures for the MG2, citing only a gas-electric-system total of 200 horsepower. In the Camry version of the setup, Toyota supplies ratings of 141 horsepower and 199 lb-ft of torque for the electric motor alone, and it’s a good bet the ES300h’s MG2 is packing at least as much.

Well if its any SUV that they decide to go crazy on it should be this NX.

The RX already has a rep for being an old lady/man car.

The NX has a fresh start

With its aggressive youthful design. A NX-F would be the right path to take.

V8 in a NX? I would do it.

Just convince Lexus they need one to compete with the QX70 5.0 and Porsche Cayenne.
