About the 2016 Lexus RC 350
In terms of trim configurations for the compact RC luxury coupe from Lexus, the RC 350 sits in the middle. It is between the 200t and 300 models on one end and the exclusively badged F Sport versions on the other. The RC 350, as a trim, is unchanged from the debut model year, which came out in 2014 as a 2015 model.
The 2016 Lexus RC 350 is available in rear-wheel and full-time four-wheel drivetrains; the latter is particularly for better traction and improved off-road capability. The engine that powers the RC 350 is a 3.5-liter 24-valve V6, which is tuned to produce 306 horsepower and 277 foot-pounds of torque. The engine is hitched to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which has paddle shifters to grand more gear shifting control and is electronically controlled for smooth operation in auto mode. The coupe has a 0-60 miles-per-hour (mph) speed of 6 seconds flat, and the top track speed is 130 mph. Fuel efficiency is estimated at 19 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 26 mpg for highway driving.
The four-wheel independent suspension and electronic vehicle speed-sensing power steering ensure a virtually bump-free ride with excellent handling. Riding on 18-inch alloy wheels, the 2016 Lexus RC 350 has four-wheel power-assisted ventilated disc brakes and anti-lock braking system (ABS) for outstanding stopping ability. Other standard features on the coupe include:
• Dual exhaust system
• Power heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators
• Auto-dimming rearview mirror
• HomeLink garage-door opener
• Remote keyless entry
• 10-speaker audio system that includes steering wheel-mounted controls
• Leather upholstery
• Multi-way power-adjustable front seats
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Lexus RC invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Lexus RC Prices above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
