A Model of Distinction: The 2018 Lexus RX Is Almost Here

The fourth generation RX, debuting in this year, is a true show stopper and the newest must-have in the 2018 Lexus Line up in terms of reliability, versatility, and detailed styling.

While the Lexus RX has always offered an ideal combination of SUV versatility and luxury sedan-like comfort, this repeatedly best-seller stands out in the segment with a dramatic mix of sharp creases and curves. The focal point of the front is the Lexus signature spindle grille, set off by an elegant chrome-plated surround and standard Bi-LED headlights.
The spindle theme repeats at the rear, where L-shaped LED taillights envelop the tailgate and wrap into the rear fenders. Capping off the design, quite literally, is a floating-roof effect created by elegantly blacked-out C-pillars. Where the rubber meets the road, there’s a choice of three 20-inch wheel design which perfectly accents the eleven, scratch resistant, self-restoring paint colors.

Impeccable Cabin Design and Luxury

The RX cabin is designed with impeccable details, including the satin brushed-aluminum trim (F SPORT only), form-fitting seats, and the available richly finished wood trim (Premium and Luxury Packages) that curves gently up from the center console toward the glove box. The RX interior speaks luxury with impeccable details including form-fitting seats, rich wood trim for Luxury and Premium packages, and a subtle satin brushed aluminum trim on the F SPORT only.  The spacious cabin seats five in the RX models, providing a position comparable to that in the Lexus LS flagship luxury sedan. Past the back seats, is ample room for up to four large suitcases or multiple golf bags, providing passengers with versatility without sacrifice. An available full-color Heads-Up Display (HUD) incorporated into the design of the instrument panel can project key information on the windshield to help the driver focus on the road ahead.     

Your Options:

RX 350: V6
The Lexus RX 350 will continue to offer its most powerful V6 engine with 295 hp and 268 lb.-ft. of torque. The 3.5-liter engine’s D-4S fuel injection system combines direct and port fuel injection systems. 

The Lexus RX 350 offers the choice between front-wheel drive and Dynamic Torque Control AWD. Under normal cruising conditions, this advanced system engages front-wheel drive to help reduce fuel consumption. Dynamic Torque Control automatically shifts to AWD when accelerating to help prevent front-wheel slippage, or when sensors detect wheel slippage.  

RX 450h Hybrid: The Most Powerful RX
More than a decade ago, Lexus introduced the world’s premier luxury hybrid vehicle- a gas/electric version of the RX luxury-utility vehicle. The RX 450h continues to serve as a powerful reminder of the brand’s hybrid leadership, with 308 combined system horsepower for powerful performance (3.5-liter V6 engine) and impressive 30 mpg combined EPA-estimated fuel economy.

A Dynamic Ride and Precise Handling Capabilities

Drive Mode Select
Drivers can exert more control over the RX by choosing from several driving modes. Normal provides an ideal everyday balance of performance and energy conservation. Sport puts an edge on powertrain responsiveness, and Eco mode operates the powertrain at its most efficient level. For the RX 450 fourth mode, EV, enables electric power at lower speeds for short distances. “SPORT S” mode enhances throttle response and acceleration feel while also sharpening the feel of the EPS system. Upgrade to the F SPORT package to receive “SPORT S+” to activate a firmer suspension setting for flatter cornering.

If you are in the market for a customized driving experience, you can create a unique driving mode by combining powertrain and chassis settings (CUSTOMIZE mode available for F SPORT).


Transform your cabin by choosing the F SPORT models and receive an intensified exterior with an exclusive blackout mesh grille, lower spoiler section, and satin finish chrome-plated lower protector. Black side mirrors match the grille, and exclusive 20-inch 10-spoke aluminum alloy wheels and subtle but distinctive F SPORT badging round out the expressive exterior.

Inspired by the Lexus LFA supercar, the driver experiences an 8 inch LCD instrument cluster, which artistically combines a tachometer and digital speed indicator with real-time information to intensify your Lexus driving experience in a subtle and technology-based way. The screen provides information such as G-force metrics, navigation information, torque distribution, and more.

A Full Circle Sensory Experience

Multimedia Powerhouse
From powerful audio to cutting-edge displays, the multimedia available for the Lexus RX models covers all needs. The standard Display Audio system includes an eight-inch screen, HD Radio™, Scout GPS Link, Bluetooth® audio, voice recognition, an auxiliary mini jack, two USB ports and nine speakers for the RX 350 and for the RX 450h. The driver will find frequently used switches placed close at hand for convenience. Upgrade your driver to 450h and receive a 12-speaker premium audio system (with Navigation). An additional option involves a larger, 12.3-inch high-resolution split screen multimedia display, with full-screen navigation capabilities and access to audio or climate controls (and other various systems).
From that strong starting point, drivers can upgrade the RX 350 and 450h to a 12-speaker premium audio system with Navigation. Also available, a 12.3-inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display offers a full-screen navigation map or can provide simultaneous access to audio or climate controls and various systems.
