Lexus SUV Review
Lexus has quietly amassed a collection of Sport Utility Vehicles and Crossovers to rival the best in the industry. With a firm emphasis on luxury, Lexus SUVs stress quality workmanship, subtle design and refined performance, without sacrificing utility and toughness.
All Lexus SUVs come with a 4 year/50,000 mile basic warranty and 6 year/70,000 mile powertrain warranty. Hybrid System Warranty coverage is for eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first, and covers the following components: Hybrid control module, Hybrid battery control module, Hybrid battery and inverter with converter. Roadside assistance is provided for 48 months from the vehicle's in-service date, regardless of mileage (24 hours a day, 365 days a year for vehicles operated within the U.S. territories and Canada).
RX is a mid-size Crossover SUV, built on a unibody car platform. Popular since its debut as a 1999 model (the RX 300), incremental design changes and power increases over the life of the model have created a luxurious, manageable Crossover that leads all Lexus models in sales. RX 350 comes with a 3.5 liter 24 valve V6 engine with variable valve timing cranks out 270 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque. It gets 20 mpg city/25 mpg highway (FWD); 19 mpg city/24 mpg highway (AWD), according to the EPA. Prices start at $36,800 for front-wheel drive; $38,200 for all-wheel drive.
