Pricing for the 2018 Lexus RX 450hL was announced at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.
The seven-seater, three-row hybrid crossover will be priced from $51,615 including destination when it arrives dealerships this April. That makes it $1,550 more expensive than the RX 350L all-wheel-drive model, and $4,925 compared to the standard RX 450h. The model comes standard with second-row captain’s chairs, along with leather-trimmed seats, driver seat, side mirror and steering wheel memory, and Lexus Enform Safety connect and Service Connect complimentary for the first 10 years of ownership.
Powering the 2018 Lexus RX 450hL is a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine combined with two high-torque electric motors, providing a total system output of 308 horsepower.
The new three-row variant of the popular Lexus RX crossover originally made its debut earlier this year at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. Compared to the standard Lexus RX, body length is extended 4.3 inches at the rear to accommodate the third row. The Japanese automaker also used a steeper tailgate window angle, helping ensure more headroom for third-row passengers.
There’s also an available Luxury package that offers comfort for drivers and passengers by adding semi-aniline trimmed seats, interior LED ambient illumination, manual rear door sunshades, laser-cut Gray Sapele wood trim with aluminum, 20-inch alloy wheels with machined finish, and selectable color inserts, heated wood steering wheel, and more. The Luxury package costs $3,935 additional.
