Lexus has been producing their RX series since a long time now, and it has been running successfully. The manufacturer is already working on a redesign of the models that are going to be released as 2018 model. One of them is definitely the 2018 Lexus RX 350 which will be a three-row seating crossover.
2018 Lexus RX 350: Changes and Facelift
Lexus’ fans are eagerly waiting for this facelift to get completed as everyone wants to know the essential changes taking place this time. One thing must be known about this model which is that one should not expect major changes in this facelift because RX 350 had already undergone a major refresh this year. Therefore there will be few minor yet essential changes in the 2018 version.
Crossover is something which is not produced by all automobile companies. So when a company produces crossovers, they try to give their best to create these crossovers. Lexus has always maintained a standard in the appearance of their cars. RX 350 is not an exception either.
Top class appearance has been maintained throughout the interior and exterior of this car. The remarkable thing about the fascia of this car is the grille section which is exceptionally large. It is a wide and broad trapezoidal type section made of horizontal slats of metal. Air cooling in 2018 Lexus RX 350 has also been thoroughly revised.
Headlights are sleek yet brighter than before as they incorporate LEDs. There are two small fog lamps as well in the two corners of its front bumper. Ground clearance is standard in RX 350. This means this car can be driven with care in semi off roads. High-quality alloy wheels of 18 inch with five spokes are installed in the upcoming version of Lexus RX 350.
Engine and Specifications
As far as engine specification is concerned, 2018 Lexus RX 350 will be equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine as the base variant. This engine can produce a power up to 300 HP with a torque of around 270 lb-ft.
This car reaches 60 mph from 0 at around 7.4 seconds of time which means that the pick up speed is pretty much standard. In all probability, transmission in this car will be of 8-speed and fully automatic. There will be options for an all-wheel drive configuration along with regular front two wheel drive.
Price Range and Arrival
Almost all essential technological consoles will be provided in this car, and few of them will be upgraded to their latest versions. The 2018 Lexus RX 350 has been expected to come with a price of around $42,000 for the front wheel drive version and around $44,000 for the all-wheel drive model. This car will hit the market by the first quarter of 2018.
