Lexus has finally spilled the details on its new NX model including the specs for its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
The 2015 Lexus NX 200t will have 235 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and is the brand’s first powerplant to use a twin-scroll turbocharger. Also joining the NX 200t in America will be the NX 300h hybrid with a total system output of 194 hp with the Lexus Drive 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine, generator, motor and battery. Of course buyers will be able to opt for an F Sport package for the NX 200t which includes a mesh grille insert, bold front bumper, machined-finish wheels, black exterior mirrors, interior ornamentation, paddle shifters and sport seats.
The 2015 Lexus NX 200t will come equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission that features the company’s new torque-demand control logic, which calculates required torque and maximizes it, delivering quick response to acceleration. Lexus also shared the final dimensions of the NX crossover, measuring in at 182.3 inches long, 72.6 inches wide and 64.8 inches tall including the antenna.
“Positioned below the RX, the new NX model will provide an exciting entry point into the Lexus crossover and luxury utility vehicle family. Its expressive design and turbocharged performance embody the technology and design focused direction customers can expect from Lexus,” said Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager.
