With new styling, revised powertrain options and a revamped interior to accompany its slick advertising campaign, the 2023 Lexus RX family is aiming for more than just a refresh for its redesign. Now we know that redesign comes at a reasonable bump in pricing: For 2023, the base RX 350 starts at $48,550 (all prices include destination), up $1,500 over 2022.

New Engine, Interior Improvements Lend RX New Lease on Life

We cover the 2023 RX’s ground-up redesign in our more detailed review in the link above, but among the more significant changes for the new model year are that the V-6 engine option has been replaced by a base turbocharged four-cylinder more in keeping with class competitors, the 450h has been rebranded the 350h, the extended-length RX 350L has been dropped, and the 500h F Sport Performance hybrid joins the lineup.

The interior has also been revised, with a 9.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system as the base unit and higher trims receiving a bigger 14-inch screen. Mercifully, both finally ditch the frustrating touchpad controller. The rest of the cabin has higher-quality materials as Lexus designers worked to emphasize luxury and comfort.

Pricing and Release Date

Pricing for the 2023 Lexus RX lineup, all of which are on sale now, is as follows (all prices include a $1,150 destination fee). All-wheel drive is an optional $1,600 on the 350 and 350 Premium Plus; it’s standard on the 350 F Sport Handling and 350h and 500h hybrids.

  • RX 350: $48,550
  • RX 350 Premium Plus: $53,150
  • RX 350 F Sport Handling: $57,750
  • RX 350h: $50,150
  • RX 350h Premium Plus: $54,750
  • RX 500h F Sport Performance: $62,750

The RX’s starting price undercuts its most immediate model-year 2023 competitors, all of which start at north of $50,000. The Acura MDX is its closest rival in cost at $50,745, but luxe mid-size SUV rivals like the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE and Volvo XC90 all nudge or exceed $60,000 to start.
