#66 of 178 Official Info!
Oct 21, 2002 (7:10 am)
I talked with my salesman and he gave me the first official info on the 2004 RX. Dealers and selected personnel were shown a video of the new vehicle last Friday. Here are the facts:
1. It will be the RX 330 (horsepower not given)
2. On sale date is April 1 as a 2004 model
3. Many new colors not currently available on other Lexus vehicles will be offered (like Olive)
4. No third seat available
5. All-new options include:
Radar cruise control
17" or 18" wheels
Moonroof or new oversized moonroof
Power rear hatch
Rain-sensing windshield wipers
Rear DVD entertainment system
Of course, HID lights, nav, in-dash 6-disc CD changer and ML stereo will also be options.
Some other Lexus news given out at the meeting:
1. The redesigned GS will come out in spring 2004 as a 2005 model
2. The redesigned IS will come out fall 2004 as a 2005 model

XSFO- On the http://www.lexusclub.ch/News_RX330.htm , the fourth photo looks like a cross between the Acura MDX and Buick Rendezvous. The front looks awfully close to a Rendezvous, I suppose with the vertical grill bars. Just a thought. Its still sharp looking nonetheless.
#68 of 178 Steering Wheel

Has anyone been to the Lexus website lately. When you go on it, they have this new beginning with different people and they show a lexus car with them. The campaign is like "special moments" or something like that. But getting to the point, like on the third slide they show this steering wheel. I have never seen this steering wheel before and they show a part of the dash and this doesn't match any of the lexus cars even the new GX470. I'm thinking this could be the Rx 330 steering wheel, check it out and tell me if you think the same.

I do believe it's the steering wheel of the LS. It matches from what I can see. The LS even has the black buttons above the ignition.

Yup, the 3rd slide is the interior of the LS430.
#71 of 178 Crosslist in SUV?
Nov 21, 2002 (2:30 am)
Can we get this thread crosslisted in the SUV board? It's about time. The announcement for it will be in January 2003.

Good suggestion. Let me ask and see if it's OK.

Does anyone have any information on the price of the RX330? Will it be priced the same (or similar) as the current RX300 model? Thanks in advance!

Somebody at clublexus.com appears to have the 2004 RX 330 pre-production brochure.
My computer says the link is too long and won't let me post it. Just go to clublexus.com, click on forums, then click on RX 300. It's one of the first posts, and clearly shows the exterior and interior.

The vehicle in those pictures looks VERY much like all the other photos of the new RX. I believe that to be it.
