2020 Lexus RX 450H Redesign, Release Date, Price – The approaching 2020 Lexus RX 450h is a luxurious hybrid SUV and the new model will feature a couple of changes both inside and outside. Fuel-economy is great, which is expected from a hybrid model and that fuel economy puts new Lexus RX into a class-leading vehicle.
The interior is both quiet and comfortable and the ride feels smooth. Thanks to the numerous safety features, this midsize SUV comes with great safety rating and some features that were optional are now standard now. The price will remain the same as the outgoing model, which is another great thing about this SUV.
Redesign and Changes
The 2020 Lexus RX 450h comes with an attractive and modern exterior. We could call this exterior a “classic Lexus” as most of the styling cues can be found on some other company’s models. The changes are minor, but the exterior is dynamic. The front spindle grille suffered a slight change, however, the character is on a different level. Lexus RX 450h will arrive with nice and sharp edges and lines that will boost the futuristic appearance a little more. This hybrid SUV offers a rearview camera, power tailgate, 18-inch wheels are rain-sensing wipers as a standard.
The touch-free tailgate and the sunroof are optional, just like the 20-inch wheels. A panoramic view monitor of the 2020 Lexus RX 450h is perhaps the biggest addition to this new hybrid model. This feature uses up to four cameras mounted on the front and rear sides so the 360-degree bird’s eye view is created. It comes with a 12-inch monitor that sits in front of the driver’s seat.
Engine and Specs
As the things stand, the 2020 Lexus RX 450h will remain a class leader in the fuel economy category. This midsize SUV comes with the most efficient 3.5-liter V6 drivetrain. This unit will arrive with the 123-kW electric motor and it can create 308 HP and 248 lb-ft of torque. Another great thing is CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). All-wheel drive is also in the offer and the fuel economy with an all-wheel drive is 31/28 mpg.
We must mention that the base model of the RX 350 series comes with the 3.5-liter V6 engine. It is able to deliver 295 horsepower and 267 lb ft of torque. This engine comes with an EPA city/highway fuel economy: 20/27 mpg for the FWD and 19/26 mpg for the model with AWD system. However, this version of the SUV will also get RX 350 L model. This one model with a third row comes with the same engine but the difference is that it has 5 HP less. Also, fuel economy is changed to 19/26 mpg (FWD) and 18/25 mpg (AWD).
Price and Release Date
As we mentioned, the 2020 Lexus RX 450h will keep the same price as the outgoing model. So we can expect the price in the range of $55,000. The price is better than the Mercedes-Benz GLE and BMW X5 models. This hybrid midsize SUV will go on sale in the first half of 2020.
