    though, I would think they do a hybrid with the EX first before the FX...

    no 3rd row -- it'll lose it's handling if they extend the chassis too much.

    don't kid yourself, electric can make stupid torque & stupid power, it's just a matter of providing the energy to do it, so of course hybrids now are built to be as unconsuming as possible, think weak & anemic.

    eventually there will be monster hybrids out there too, battery technology is the biggest drawback so far. when battery technology catches up, or a better way to produce & store the energy required, the day will come that gasoline cars will be a joke, they may as well have run on coal :)

    ah, maybe not next year though :)

    +1 Totally destroys the image of the FX. Offering a Hybrid version will turn all the JOTOS onto the FX

    Im not sure of what kind of hybrid, etc the lexus 400h is, or how it works, but im pretty sure it has better hp than all the other lexus suv's put out.
