The upcoming 2023 Lexus RX 350 F Sport is another exciting SUV in the segment. Like the regular RX 350 model, the F SPORT comes with the same engine. However, if you are looking for an enhanced driving experience, sport-tuned suspension, and a more athletic appearance, the F SPORT is the right choice. This model is getting an all-new look with a unique design of the front fascia.
The Lexus provides a roomy interior with lots of luxury and much more. However, we don’t know if the three-row model is on the way. This is still just a rumor, so Lexus is yet to confirm or deny those claims. The RX 350 model is one of the best-selling models in the US, for a reason. Its F SPORT trim level is among the most popular choices, so here’s everything you need to know.
The new 2023 Lexus RX 350 F SPORT will gain a lot of new things. For a start, every RX model in the lineup will have a 2.4-inch longer wheelbase over the outgoing version. The new front fascia is unique, but we heard some bad things about it. We think it looks unique and definitely sharper than before. Of course, the attractive spindle grille is available once again.
Generally, the general styling is sharp and distinctive. The result is a very attractive SUV that looks premium and modern. Also, Lexus said the new model will retain its current dimensions, but it will be almost 200 pounds lighter than before. As for the F Sport model, this model will add an even more attractive grille, with a more athletic stance and bigger wheels.
Lexus RX 350 F SPORT Interior
On the inside, the new 2023 Lexus RX 350 F SPORT is equally premium as the rest of the trim level lineup. It is a luxury SUV with upright materials and lots of high-tech features. The cabin is nicely designed and Lexus offers up to six different interior color schemes. Thanks to a longer wheelbase, the new 2023MY will have more interior room, so comfort will be even better from now on. Still, the three-row SUV is a mystery, so nothing is official yet.
The F SPORT model will use Lexus Safety System+ 3.0. This suite provides systems such as auto emergency braking, steering assist, adaptive cruise control, and more. A 14-inch multimedia screen is on offer, along with the ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, digital key, and larger head-up display (HUD).
New Engine and Impressive Handling
Every RX 350 model comes with a 2.4-liter engine. The 2023 Lexus RX 350 F SPORT is no different. This turbo-four gasoline engine provides 275 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. Yes, the 3.5-liter V6 is gone. The new base engine provides 24 mpg combined, which is an improvement. Lexus also provides an optional 2.5-liter hybrid variant with 246 hp and 233 lb-ft of torque.
This model gets 33 mpg combined, so if you are ready to sacrifice power, this is the most fuel-efficient model you can get. There is also the F SPORT Performance model, but only in the RX 500 variant. The F SPORT trim level adds numerous mechanical upgrades, including a sport-tuned suspension and a standard AWD system.
2023 Lexus RX 350 F SPORT Price, Release Date
And while the base trim level starts at around $47,000, the new 2023 Lexus RX 350 F SPORT will cost slightly above $50,000. Of course, radical changes should increase the vehicle’s price. The sales will begin later this summer.
