As Lexus’ best-seller, the RX is not just some mid-size luxury crossover with head-turning good looks, but it’s also the Japanese luxury automaker’s bread and butter.
For 2023, Lexus has given its handsome mid-size luxury SUV a thorough redesign as it enters its fifth generation. The 2023 Lexus RX sports a sharper exterior adorned with the brand’s new grille design, restyled headlights, etc. Inside, the RX is even more luxurious than ever. The new RX is strictly a two-row SUV until Lexus brings back the family-friendly RX L model. Let’s take a closer look at what the new 2023 Lexus RX lease deal brings to the table.
Engine And Performance
Like other Lexus models, the new RX leaves shoppers with many exciting engine options to choose from. The standard engine is a punchy 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder cylinder that makes 275 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque; it pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. Hybrid models mix a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with Lexus hybrid electric drive to generate 246 horses and 233 lb-ft. This setup employs an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission to send power to all four wheels of the new RX. Opting for the high-end RX 500h F Sport Performance unlocks a robust hybrid that combines the base turbocharged four-cylinder with electric power to kick out 366 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. It also features a six-speed sequential-shift automatic transmission. The Japanese luxury automaker has disclosed that a 400h+ plug-in hybrid model will join the RX lineup later in 2023.
EPA is yet to test the new RX, but according to Lexus, the hybrid RX 350h is the most fuel-efficient model. It is rated 37 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
The redesigned RX houses a more luxurious interior and an updated infotainment interface. Expensive-looking wood trims, enhanced ambient lighting, and high-quality leather upholstery are found everywhere, giving the new RX a premium look and feel. Base models have a 9.8-inch touchscreen display and a 12-speaker premium sound system. Optional features include a 10.0-inch color Head-up display, a 21-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system, the larger 14.0-inch touchscreen display, etc.
Safety And Driver Assistance
