Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Lexus RX 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.)
The Lexus RX is a two-row SUV that feels elegant with all of its high-end amenities. It has a comfortable cabin and offers a smooth ride, and it has good capability.
There are two main versions. The first one has two rows of seats, while the other has three rows of seats. This would give it a seating capacity of seven. The three-row version distinguishes it from the others in name by having the "L" designation attached to it. For example, there's both a 350 model and a 350L version.
The length of the two-row RX is 192.5 inches, while a three-row has a length of 196.9 inches. They differ in height by less than half an inch; it's actually the two-row version that's the taller one.
A difference in length of 4.4 inches doesn't actually seem that significant. Obviously, this amount of space is not enough to fit another row. To combat this problem, Lexus has modified the extended-length versions. While the two-row models have 38 inches of second-row leg room, the three-row versions only have 30.9 inches of second-row leg room. This isn't that much room, but it allows there to be a third row of seats.
There are two options, both of which use V6 engines. The standard powertrain uses a 3.5-liter V6 engine that can make up to 295 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. Note that the L versions that have these engines only have 290 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque.
Then, there's a hybrid system that's available. The hybrid models are the 450h models. They use 3.5-liter V6 engines as well, but they also have electric motors. This hybrid system allows for 308 horsepower.
Of course, there's another thing to consider with the different engines, and that's fuel economy. The best that a non-hybrid can do is to earn 20 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway. In contrast, the hybrids can achieve up to 31 miles per gallon in the city and 28 miles per gallon on the highway.
A final note related to this topic is that the standard engine can be paired with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The hybrids are automatically set up with all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive comes with an electronic differential lock.
The technology package on this Lexus is pretty impressive. The standard package consists of an eight-inch display, voice recognition, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. In addition, SiriusXM and HD Radio are included with every model.
Recognizing that full cabins usually mean that there are many mobile devices in the vehicle, Lexus has given the RX six USB ports and optional wireless charging. Wi-Fi capability is another element that's included, and this can really open up entertainment options for passengers.
Something else to appreciate is the Lexus Enform Remote service. It lets users use their smartphones or other mobile devices to communicate with their vehicles. Through an app, people can lock or unlock their doors, start their engines and get their climate control systems going, check on their fuel level, schedule service appointments, and more.
Navigation is an option, as is a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen. If anyone is interested, either a 15-speaker or a 12-speaker sound system can be added on to the package.
The lineup starts out with the RX 350. This base trim has a full set of driver-assist technologies, along with dual-zone climate control. The driver can take advantage of a power-adjustable front seat and an auto-dimming rearview mirror as well as a power-adjustable steering column. Seats are wrapped in NuLuxe material, which is a synthetic leather.
The 350 F Sport is upgraded with a memory system for the driver's seat, and that memory system works with the side mirrors and steering wheel, too. The F Sport has extra features that make it seem more like a sports car. Those include enhanced bolsters in the front seats and performance dampers. Plus, it has 20-inch wheels, black side mirrors and a black headliner, and aluminum pedals.
For those who really prefer that dark aesthetic, there's the Black Line Special Edition. It comes with black wheels, a gloss black grille, other black accents, and black seats with white accents and gray accent stitching. It treats the driver to a heated steering wheel. This trim gets to have aluminum roof rails, and one of its most attractive elements is a power moonroof.
The 350L goes back to having 18-inch wheels like the base trim. It has three-zone climate control instead of dual-zone climate control, but in most other ways, it's very similar to the base trim.
The last option with the standard engine is the 350L Black Line Special Edition. It's basically a three-row version of the 350 Black Line Special Edition.
When looking at the hybrid models, there are no major surprises. The first one is called the 450h, and it's kind of like the counterpart of the 350h. The same can be said for the 450h F Sport, 450h Black Line Special Edition, and 450hL Black Line Special Edition and their corresponding 350 trims.
There are many ways in which the Lexus RX can be customized. For instance, trims that don't come standard with the moonroof have it as an option. Other upgrades include a panoramic glass roof and premium LED lights.

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.
