The press release on the 2018 Lexus RX obviously did not discuss the new, longer version which will offer 3rd-row seating so we can only assume this information will be released at a later date (so check back with us!).  In the meantime, we wanted to share some pictures that Lexus Enthusiast posted of the new 2018 RX with the 3rd Row Seat.  Enjoy!
