RX Versions and Trim Levels for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Lexus continues to be a solid luxury car brand 30 years after its debut in the market. That’s the expected result considering the automaker’s industry-leading customer satisfaction, reliability, and affordability compared to similarly equipped European competitors. That being said, if you’re in search of a top-shelf crossover that’s both plush and practical, you’ll find plenty to like with the 2020 Lexus RX. The versatile model lineup includes two-row and three-row versions with either a gasoline-only or hybrid powertrain and plenty of standard and available features that today’s drivers desire.
The gasoline-only 2020 Lexus RX uses a 3.5-liter V6 (295 hp and 268 lb.-ft. of torque) with an eight-speed automatic electronically controlled transmission (ECT); front wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is a most popular option. FWD models achieve 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, whereas AWD models return 19 city/26 highway. The hybrid models – which are strictly AWD – receive the 3.5-liter V6 engine but with three electric motors (one on each front wheel and a single unit controlling the rear wheels). It produces a total system output of 308 hp that’s routed through an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (ECVT). The EPA estimates that the hybrid gets 31 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
2020 Lexus RX 350
This is the base trim of the 2020 Lexus RX and it carries an MSRP of $44,150. It comes with plenty of features despite its entry-level standing, including a power liftgate, keyless entry with push-button ignition, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, simulated-leather upholstery, an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, satellite and HD radio, voice commands, and a nine-speaker audio system. Lexus’ Safety System+ 2.0 is also standard. It consists of various active driver aids, like a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane tracing assist, lane departure alert with steering assist, road sign assist, all-speed dynamic radar cruise control, and intelligent high beams.
Premium, Luxury, Navigation, and Navigation/Mark Levinson Premium Audio Packages are also available. With the Premium Package, you’ll get a choice between a matte walnut or a matte bamboo interior trim, memory functions for the driver’s seat, and power-folding auto-dimming side mirrors. The Luxury Package yields the contents of the Premium Package, along with perforated leather seats, ambient interior lighting, a rear armrest storage compartment, power-adjustable front seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and manual rear-door sunshades. An infotainment system with a 12.3-inch touchscreen and integrated navigation comes in the Navigation Package, and if you opt for the Mark Levinson alternative, a premium 15-speaker audio system will be added. A hands-free liftgate, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a panoramic view monitor are all available as standalone options.
2020 Lexus RX 350 F Sport
This is a more athletic version of the base 2020 Lexus RX. It’s priced at $47,950 and boasts a race-inspired design with sharper styling and includes the Premium Package’s features. It also comes with a sport-tuned suspension, sport front seats, and unique interior trim. It’s eligible for an F Sport Performance Package containing a heated steering wheel, a Sport S+ mode for the drive mode select function, and sport-tuned electronic power steering. The same packages and add-ons from the base 350 are available.
2020 Lexus RX 350L
This trim, which starts its pricing at $47,300, is similar in many ways to the base 350, but it comes with power-folding/-reclining third-row seats with a 50/50 split. The power-adjustable second-row bench seat can also be switched out for captain’s chairs, which reduces the seven-passenger arrangement to six. The Premium and Luxury Packages are still available, but they now add roof rails and a moonroof. The Navigation and Mark Levinson Packages are still available, as are the individual add-ons.
2020 Lexus RX 450h, 450h F Sport, and 450hL
