What’s New for 2017?
The 2017 Lexus RC F now features adaptive suspension dampers, which help give it a better ride. Furthermore, a new feature enables you to view your smartphone’s GPS on the infotainment screen.
What Styles Does It Come In?
All versions of the rear-wheel-drive coupe come equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Power comes from a 467-horsepower, V-8 engine. A useful backseat enables up to four people to enjoy the ride. Lexus has yet to introduce a convertible RC F model. Some of the most striking exterior colors include Molten Orange, Infrared, and Liquid Platinum.
What Are the Available Trims?
The new Lexus RC F is only offered in a single trim. However, it does come loaded with an impressive number of premium components. In terms of styling, you will immediately notice the RC F’s stacked exhaust tips and functional rear spoiler. LED headlamps also come standard.
On the inside, heated and ventilated seats help provide year-round comfort. Featuring a total of 17 speakers, the coupe’s Mark Levinson audio system offers superior sound quality. Meanwhile, rear cross-traffic alert and a backup camera make the coupe easier to maneuver in crowded areas. Every driver can take advantage of the RC-F’s high-tech gauge cluster.
Very few sport cars have a more extravagant cabin than the 2017 Lexus RC F. While behind the wheel of the new RC F, you will appreciate its outstanding seat comfort. Although the coupe’s sleek design limits rearward visibility, a blind-spot monitor does help drivers to switch lanes with more confidence.
From a performance standpoint, the RC F takes around 4.4 seconds to hit 60 mph. While there are faster cars in the RC F’s price range, it is more than quick enough for most drivers. Sharp handling and a powerful exhaust note make the coupe especially fun to drive.
According to the EPA, the 2017 Lexus RC F will return 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Keep in mind that Lexus tuned the engine to burn premium unleaded fuel.
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 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures 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.
