The Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon have been out of the midsize pickup market for a couple years now. In that time ... well, to be honest, nothing has changed. The Tacoma and Frontier are still being sold, despite coming to market the same year your author graduated high school. And, hey, that's about it. You'd think that it would make sense for an automaker to release a midsize pickup that addresses all the concerns with the current midsize market.
The 2015 Lexus RC is an ambitious car. Instead of going with the same formula as the last generation and just creating an IS Coupe, Lexus pulled out an entirely new vehicle (composed of three current vehicles), and the automaker even pulled out a new badge, just for this coupe. All it takes is one quick glance at the Lexus RC to realize that Lexus has taken the typically conservative IS Coupe and taken it in a completely different direction.
The RAV4 was the first of its kind, so it makes sense that it should do everything a crossover is supposed to do, and do it extremely well.
