The automotive pundits over at Cheersandgears seem to have scored a hatrick of scoops publishing what they claim to be, the first official shots of the Honda Crosstour Concept, the 2013 Ram 1500 pickup truck and the 2013 Lexus ES sedan, all of which are set to make their world premiere at the New York Auto Show on Wednesday, April 4.
Beginning with Honda's concept model, if this image is indeed real, then the Crosstour study is nothing more than a light facelift of the current model with a revised snout sporting a new chromed grille and a more rugged-looking front bumper, plus different wheels and protective black cladding all around.
The second picture allegedly shows us the 2013 Ram 1500 pickup truck, which looks like it gains a reshaped crosshair grille with a full-chrome treatment (at least on this edition), new headlamp fixtures, possibly featuring LED daytime running lights, and a redesigned bumper with new fog lamps.
The third and final model previewed in these photos is the next generation of the Lexus ES sedan, which we will admit, doesn’t look bad from this angle. Aside from a teaser shot published by Lexus, a Chinese website had caught an undisguised prototype of the 2013 ES offering us our first intact view of the premium mid-size sedan.
We'll withhold further judgment for all three cars until we verify their authenticity.
