The 2005 Lexus RX 400h...the "h" stands for "Hybrid!"

Lexus is planning on introducing a new member of the family by this fall! The world's first luxury gas-electric hybrid...the 2005 Lexus RX 400h! It's considered a SUV, but it's referred to a crossover in Japan, where it's going to be built! The RX 400h is a hybrid version of the RX 330 (The RX 300 is long-dead)! The numbers "400" in the RX 400h name refers to nothing! The RX 400h will use the same 3.3 V6, which is what it was first referred to (hence the "330" in the RX 330 name)! The letter "h" refers to "Hybrid!" Toyota will also be introducing a Toyota Highlander Hybrid, which will use the exact same engine that will be used in the RX 400h! I've seen photos of both the Toyota and the Lexus, but I want to know how others think of the two as well! Actually, I'm only interested in what others think of the Lexus!!! Sorry Toyota!!!

What do you like/love about the coming attraction, Lexus RX 400h?!
What do you not like/hate about it?!

Both positive as well as negative comments are all very welcome! Be HONEST! 'cause I really need to know before I actually get one!

If you happen to know anything else about the RX 400h, please do so and share with the world as much as you can! Good luck!

I like that they've changed the angle of the rear glass and [the car] it's not so square anymore.

I personally like the new Hybrid Highlander... I am going to get my mom to get one... think of it like this:
She wants a Highlander
I want a Semi-beast
The hybrid has the regular V6 (I believe) + the Electric engine... most beastly Highlander that I know of that is stock.

thats why i said 'when you do'

i've seen the pics on the net but i was thinking maybe you might add a few things to it like wheels/rims woteva lol and a cool I.C.E system

is there a chance you might?
