RX F SPORT

Autoweek, 2014
"Extremely agile, shockingly quick on acceleration, and handled well on roadways covered with layers of packed snow."

8-Speed Paddle-Shift Transmission

For drivers who want to get the most out of every curve, the RX F SPORT features an exclusive eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. And, to ensure the full exhilaration of its 270-horsepower engine is always ready at your fingertips, the system is so advanced it actually studies your driving behavior and then adjusts gear-shift timing to match your driving style.

F Sport-Tuned Suspension

To forge an even greater connection to the road, the suspension on the RX F SPORT was exclusively tuned by those who understand track-worthy performance best: the same team responsible for the suspension in the world-class LFA supercar. The RX F SPORT is also exclusively equipped with front and rear lateral performance dampers to provide additional rigidity to the chassis while also minimizing vibrations. The result: enhanced handling, a more linear steering feel and a ride that’s as comfortable as it is invigorating.

Dynamic Handling

Dynamic Handling

The RX is engineered to deliver agile and dynamic handling like that of a luxury sedan. It features a low powertrain, a fully independent MacPherson strut front suspension and a completely unique double-wishbone rear suspension that took 30 separate tuning sessions to develop. The system not only helps improve handling grip, it also intrudes less into the cargo area, freeing up floor space.

All-Weather Drive

All-Weather Drive

Available on the RX and RX F SPORT, the Active Torque Control all-wheel drive (AWD) system monitors vehicle and road conditions to predict your path. Then it maximizes efficiency by automatically delivering up to 50% of available torque to the rear wheels only when you need it. And on the AWD RX Hybrid, an electric motor delivers instantaneous torque to the rear wheels automatically when you need it, and with no friction loss.

Responsive Power

Responsive Power

The 3.5-liter V6 engine in the RX delivers 270 horsepower and makes 90 percent of its peak torque available in the low-rpm range for incredibly responsive power at all engine speeds—all while providing greater fuel efficiency thanks to the dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) system. And the smooth six-speed automatic transmission uses multiple driving sensors to deliver improved performance and fuel efficiency.

Class-Leading MPG

The 3.5-liter V6 Atkinson-cycle engine in the RX Hybrid is able to convert more of the energy generated during combustion into mechanical energy than conventional engines can. Paired with Lexus Hybrid Drive, this innovative system contributes to a combined 295 total system horsepower*, low emissions and a class-leading* 30 mpg* combined rating.

Intelligent Shift Control

The RX Hybrid is the first hybrid vehicle to feature Intelligent Shift Control, a system that can estimate whether you are traveling uphill or downhill and automatically provide the optimal engine response. Or you can manually shift for greater responsiveness and maneuverability.

Innovative Engineering

Exhaust gas is an inevitable by-product of combustion engines. The RX 450h, however, captures, cools and reuses a portion of these gasses to warm the engine, significantly shortening—up to 15 minutes in extreme cold weather—the time it takes the RX to reach a temperature at which it can function on battery power alone. And unlike conventional engine-powered air conditioning systems, the A/C on the RX 450h is powered by an electric motor.

Exclusive Driving Modes

The RX Hybrid offers exclusive driving modes to adapt its performance to your desires. When in ECO mode, fuel efficiency is increased by automatically optimizing multiple systems to consume less energy and regulating the throttle response for more even acceleration. Selecting Sport mode enhances acceleration and steering response for a performance feel.
