We Recommend

The 2023 Lexus RX 350 hasn’t revealed price information for any of its different trims, however, some features have been provided. In out opinion, taking into consideration how last year’s RX 350 was priced, we would recommend the Premium Plus variant. Pricing is expected to be in the range of $50k to $60k, putting the Premium Plus at around the $56K mark. The variety of comfort features it provides, along with beautiful interiors will make it worth its price. 

Release Date

The release date information isn’t known yet been confirmed through the official website, however, the Lexus RX 350 website provides the buyers with an optional stay informed forum from where they can get all the latest information and remain notified as to when it will be available for pre-order. We believe that it will be available and ready at the dealership at showrooms near the end of 2022.

Engine and Performance

The Lexus RX will be available in four different powertrains, starting with the base Lexus RX 350 model that comes with an FWD and eight-speed electronically controlled transmission as standard. However, these models also offer an optional AWD drivetrain. It comes equipped with a 2.4L turbocharged Inline4 engine that generates an output of 275 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. The base model can complete a run of 0 to 60 MPH in 7.5 seconds with an FWD, however, these numbers decline to 7.2 seconds with an optional AWD drivetrain. 

It comes equipped with an 8-way power-adjustable driver and front passenger’s seat that allows the passengers and driver should be able to change the seat lumbar or seatback recline at the touch of a button. It also offers to be more fuel-efficient than its predecessor and comes with customizable drive modes that allow you to personalize your driving experience and performance on varied road conditions.

The 2022 BMW X5 comes quipped a 3.0L turbocharged Inline6 engine that generates 335 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque and ranks at the top of the table. Second, comes the 2022 Acura MDX which offers a 3.5L V6 engine generating an output of 290 hp but a low 267 lb-ft of engine torque when compared to the 2023 Lexus LX 350. On the other hand, the BMW X5 provides a much swift acceleration that can complete a run from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.3 seconds while completing a quarter-mile distance in 13.6 seconds. Second, comes the Acura MDX which can complete a run of 0 to 60 MPH in 6.4 seconds while covering a quarter mile mark in 15.1 seconds. On the other hand, the 2023 Lexus RX 350 lurks at the bottom of the table that can complete a run of 0 to 60 MPH in 7.5 seconds.

The 2023 Lexus RX 350 and 2022 Acura MDX offer an equivalent towing capacity of 3,500 lbs, whereas the towing capacity statistics of the 2022 BMW X5 aren’t known yet, however, while considering the above statistics it is expected to be the most efficient in towing capability too. The 2022 Lincoln Nautilus ranks at the bottom of the table with only 1,500 lbs towing weight capacity. However, it compensates with a top speed of 140 MPH that outperforms its adversaries while the 2022 Acura MDX ranks at the bottom with a top speed of 112 MPH.

2023 Lexus RX 350 Ride and Handling

Higher trims boast an adaptive variable suspension including sensors that monitors G-force, driver input with drive mode select technology which provides a flawless ride in varied road conditions, and automatically adjusts the suspension dampers to improve performance. 

The RX 350 offers composed handling and prioritizes a comfortable ride, though it isn’t as sporty as some rivals offer it instills plenty of confidence in the driver. The 2022 Lexus RX is supposed to have an adequate amount of body roll in the corners and zero steering feedback we suspect that these changes have been made in the redesigned Lexus. Some standard specifications on its list include paddle shifters, Power tilt-and-telescopic steering column.

2023 Lexus RX 350 Braking Performance

Lexus comes with an advanced set of features when it comes to deceleration. The Lexus RX 350 is equipped with corner braking that assists the driver while maneuvering a curve at high speed.

The braking statistics of the 2023 Lexus RX 350 aren’t known yet, but if our speculation is correct and considering the overall statistics we are quite confident to believe that though it might offer some changes it will practically turn out to be like its adversaries when it comes to braking experience. On the other hand, the 2022 Acura MDX has a better combination of 13.8 inches front and 13-inch rear brake rotors in its class. 

The 2022 Lincoln Nautilus compensates with the least curb weight of 4,165 lbs making it accelerate at quick speed among its adversaries. On the other hand, the 2022 BMW X5 also lacks the details of the front and rear brake rotors, however, its sheer curb weight of 4,828 lbs can hinder its performance. 

Fuel Economy

The 2023 LX RX 350 is expected to have a better fuel economy than most of its predecessors, however, the numbers related to fuel efficiency aren’t known yet. On the other hand, the Lexus SUV 2022 had a fuel economy of 20 MPG in the city, 27 MPG on the highway, and 23 MPG combined. It also offered a fuel tank capacity of 19.2 gallons, however, we expect that its fuel efficiency and fuel tank capacity will be much better this year.
