2015 New York Auto Show: All-new 2016 Lexus RX is finally here
Lexus has just unveiled the all-new, fourth-generation RX at the 2015 New York Auto Show. Look for a completely redesigned interior and advanced safety features including Lexus Safety System+.
“With the new Lexus Safety System+, we offer drivers an added level of occupant safety in a conveniently bundled package that leverages some of the latest accident prevention technology,” said Jeff Bracken, Group Vice President and General Manager, Lexus Division. “We certainly expect the proliferation of these features to continue throughout the luxury vehicle market and our Lexus lineup as the industry remains steadfast in the pursuit of enhanced vehicle safety.”
Under the hood of the 2016 Lexus RX 350 is an upgraded and more powerful 3.5L V6 aiming to deliver 300 horsepower with direct injection, mated to a new 8-speed automatic transmission. Based on this enhanced powertrain is the RX 450h’s Atkinson-cycle 3.5L V6. When combined with the electric motor generator, total output results in around 300 horsepower.
Prices and on-sale dates for the 2016 Lexus RX models will be announced later.
