Lexus has already shared that the upcoming RX Facelift is going to be made of aluminium. This will make the SUV the first ever vehicle from Lexus to come out with aluminium parts
Lexus explained that they are picking up on the aluminium trend to reduce the weight of the RX Facelift drastically. The aluminium parts will shape the hood, tailgate and closures of the vehicle.
With a lighter RX Facelift, the vehicle is surely going to be better optimized for power. More importantly, the RX Facelift is going to return a more impressive fuel economy.
Unfortunately, Lexus has yet to share any figures to confirm on the improvements. This will have to wait until the RX Facelift makes its debut later this year.
