2022 Lexus RX: All-Around Performance and Efficiency

The power this lineup produces lies within the 3.5L V6 engine. This engine provides 296 horsepower on its based RX model and 290 horsepower on its RXL model. Plus, the engine is paired with a dual Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence System. This system not only helps support the engine's energy but allows for better fuel efficiency as you drive.

However, if you're looking for ultra-power and efficiency, you got to check out the Lexus RX Hybrid. This model combines power from both the V6 all-gas engine with an electric motor. This allows for 308 horsepower, all-wheel drive performance, and finally, an EPA-estimated 31 city/28 highway/30 combined MPG.1

To reign in some of this power, the RX F Sport comes standard with Adaptive Variable Suspension. This system is designed to reduce your vehicle's lean when taking on sharp curves and has 650 levels of damping. Plus, the RX F Sport comes with five driving modes that can adapt to nearly any road condition.
