Early this morning, I was sent a dealership document outlining the full details of the
North American Canadian 2010 Lexus RX 350, right down to the available packages (still no production model photos though, the pic above is the LF-Xh concept).
I’m going to break up the information over a series of posts today, starting with the specs:
- The 3.5L V6 engine remains the same, though it’s now pumping out an extra 5hp (to 275hp) and 6lb-ft of torque (to 257lb-ft).
- The suspension is also carried over, however a new sport-tuned suspension will be available as an option.
- The drivetrain is getting upgraded to a six-speed automatic with a Super Electronically Controlled Transmission. Hill-start Assist Control has been added as a standard feature, and VDIM will be available as an option.
- Overall vehicle length has been
shortenedincreased 1.6″ (29mm) to 187.8″ (4,770mm).
- Overall vehicle width has been increased to 74.2″ (1,885mm), 1.6″ (41mm).
- The height has been bumped up significantly, up to 67.7″ (1,720mm) from 66.1″ (1,679mm).
- The wheelbase has been extended 1 “(29mm) to 107.9″ (2,740mm).
- Curb Weight has increased a whopping 640lbs to 4,510lbs.
- 18″ P235/60R18 wheels are now standard. 19″ P235/55R19 wheels are optional.
The biggest thing to notice is the increased height of the RX and the big weight bump, which are no doubt related. The sports-tuned suspension is interesting as well, but there’s still a lack of details to what that means exactly.
More shortly, next up is a full list of new and deleted features/options.
Update: This information is for the Canadian version of the RX, though it’s easily assumed that the new US RX will share most, if not all, of these features.
