We know you have been patiently waiting and the time has come.  The Lexus RX is getting a full redesign for 2023 with improvements in styling, tech and engine options that will excite longtime enthusiasts.


As one of the top contenders in the highly-competitive luxury crossover segment, the RX 350 continues to be the best-selling Lexus vehicle in the line-up and a top pick for Edmonton drivers. Want to know what distinguishes the 2023 RX from the previous year's model? We break down the main differences for you. 


New Engine Choices For a New Year


Edmonton drivers have a choice between four RX engines: a turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder, two hybrid four-cylinder options and a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The RX 350 offers buyers 275 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque while the hybrid model gives drivers 246 hp and 233 lb-ft, but it makes up for the slightly smaller power push with an impressive fuel economy that gets you  7.1L/100 km.


If performance is a top priority for you, the RX500h has a 2.4-litre turbo four combined with an electric motor that puts out an impressive 367 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with AWD and an eight-speed automatic transmission with manual mode, the RX 500h is as sporty as it is powerful. 

New & Improved Technology


Like every model released in the 2023 Lexus line-up, the RX will include the latest version of Lexus’ infotainment system. Upgrade to a 14” display screen and enjoy all the convenience of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


Use Lexus Connect freely while on the road with simple voice commands: turn up the music, plug in an address, turn down the head and more. The 2023 Lexus RX will also feature the new Lexus Safety System+ 3.0.


This includes Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection, Intersection Support and a new feature of Motorcycle Detection; All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with new Curve Speed Management (DRCC); Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA); and Emergency Driving Stop System (EDSS). You can also now add Advanced Park which makes parallel parking easier.

A Freshened New Look


The 2023 RX is sporting a new chiselled body design. Central to the new look are the new grille and integrated headlamps. The hood is also longer and the entire look is rounded out with 19-inch wheels that feature a dark gray machined finish and colour-keyed fenders.


The powerful new RX500h gets new 21-inch wheels and its GA-K platform shows off a lower centre of gravity, lower curb weight and smoother handling.
