Lexus RX 450hL Priced From $50,620, Deliveries Start In April

Set to arrive at Lexus’ U.S. dealers in April, the hybrid version of the three-row Lexus RX has a starting price of $50,620, excluding a $995 destination charge.

The 2018 Lexus RX 450hL undercuts the 350L AWD model by $1,550, and is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline unit and two electric motors that produce a combined 308 horsepower.

Offered in two trim levels, both of them with standard all-wheel drive, the hybrid SUV benefits from a tri-zone climate control system, power-folding third-row seat and second-row captain’s chairs. The leather seats, electrically adjustable steering wheel with memory function, electrically operated side mirrors and a power tailgate, are also standard.

Buyers can spec the 2018 RX 450hL with several optional extras. These include the Luxury Package, which adds 20-inch alloy wheels with selectable color inserts, semi-aniline trimmed seats, Gray Sapele wood trim, LED ambient lighting heated wood steering wheel and rear door sunshades.

The Lexus Safety System+ is offered at no extra cost, bringing Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keep Assist, radar cruise control and Intelligent High Beams.

Other driver assistance equipment, such as the Blind Spot Monitor with Intuitive Parking Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Braking and Panoramic View Monitor are available as well.

    If ever I bought one it would be in black to hide as much of the exterior nasties as possible!

  • getoffme

    And yet it sells 6k-9k in the U.S. easily. Hate on bishes.

    I wish they spent more time on a new GX instead of stretching the RX to make a useless third row. imo

      You ain’t never lie…


    This thing needs a snickers.

  • JohnCarscoop

    And you’re absolutely sure it’s the hybrid and not the regular gasoline model? We received the information from Lexus, which insists that it will go on sale in April.

  • SteersUright

    HP rating seems awfully low for a 3.5 V6 plus 2 electric motors. Toyota’s powertrains seem so far behind the best out of Germany these days. Shame, as Lexus should already be a leading contender given the reputation its built for quality and reliability.
