2023 Lexus RX – Lexus will give its RX lineup major upgrades in terms of powertrain options. This is according to two Japanese sources, Magazine X (creative311), which suggests that it will happen. These publications state that the Lexus RX 2023 will get a new powertrain lineup along with its next-generation model. There is also a new plug-in hybrid option. The all-new RX will also be revealed this year.
First, Lexus may replace the naturally-aspirated, 3.5-liter V6 with a turbocharged, gasoline-burning engine. It is likely that this engine will be used in the new Lexus NX. The NX350’s four-banger is force-inducted and produces 275 horsepower (205 Kilowatts), as well as 317 pounds (430 Newton-meters).
2023 Lexus RX Review
According to the report, there will be three varieties of hybrid powertrains available for the RX lineup. The RX500h will now be replaced with the RX450h. It will be a hybrid vehicle that combines the turbocharged 2.4-liter engine with an electric motor.
An RX450h+ will be included in the range. It will be powered both by an engine with a 2.5-liter displacement and an electric motor. It will also have a lithium-ion battery-powered battery. Some reports claim that the base hybrid will be named the RX350h, in the same vein as the NX350h. It will be powered both by an electric motor as well as a 2.5-liter diesel engine.
Both publications didn’t provide figures for the output and range of the new powertrain lineup. It is unclear if Lexus will offer a 2.0-liter turbocharged base model for the new RX lineup. You should remain skeptical as usual about this report, at least until the automaker provides concrete details.
