2023 Lexus RX: the official pix…

Last Updated:

In these better photos, the new 2023 Lexus RX does look a bit weird to me.
That super flat hood. The super thick top of the new grille. That side chrome line that ends up into the middle of the back window.
A lot of things that look a bit odd. At least in these pictures.
Inside, the big screen reminds you a bit too much of the smaller/cheaper NX. Otherwise, it does look quite luxurious. But again, nor that special…
Of course, they dumped the super-smooth V6. Replaced by a 2.4 Liter Turbo with 275HP. At least it’s matted to an 8-speed auto and not a CVT.
That combo is rated at 24MPG combined. (FWD)
While the new 4-cylinder Hybrid averages 33MPG. Which is only 3MPG more than the 2022 hybrid model with the V6.
An all-new PHEV model will be available later. It will probably use the same powertrain as the NX.
A sportier RX 500 F Sport model is powered by a 367HP version of the 2.5 Liter. (Because, you know, people looking for something that sporty always think of Lexus.)
One regular. 2 hybrids and 2 sportier versions. That’s a lot. 
The RX is still Lexus’s most popular model with over 115 000 sold last year. I guess more versions could make it even more popular?

  1. okay not bad….. they finally found out how to make the checkmark led running lights work….

    inside seems very nice…..

    the car seems smaller…will there be an L version?

    now as to the numbers you said 115k units sold…. is that counting all versions… meaning RX & RX-L

  2. I assume the 115 000 number includes both versions since no sale info specific to the RX-L is available.

    The RX-L is canceled with this new generation. It will be replaced next year with a larger Lexus TX.
