Article from http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/toyota-to-discontinue-the-crown-sedan/ it was also mentionned on Hemmings blog.

It’s been a hard year and we’re so close to the finish line. Before it leaves us, though, 2020 is going to deliver one last sucker punch to the gut. The Chunichi Shimbun newspaper reports that Toyota will kill off the Crown sedan. This, my friends, is an outrage.

Since 1955, the Toyota Crown has been a staple of Japan’s motoring landscape. The Crown is as much a part of Japan as the Holden Commodore was a part of Australia, or the Ford Cortina a part of pre-Thatcher England. Except, it is even more so because there have been 15 consecutive generations spanning 65 years of unbroken lineage.

That’s because the Chunichi says the Crown could live on, its name being used from 2022 onward as that of a crossover based on the Highlander. From a Nürburgring-tested rear-drive sedan to a Nordstrom-tested front-drive SUV.
:(..ah well....but we all now about no GS in future..it seems Toyota started to treat Lexus like afterthought.
