Lexus created the blueprint for its luxury crossover utility vehicle more than 15 years ago with the launch of the original RX model in 1998. Today, Lexus continues its success in this segment with the 2016 RX 350, which has a starting MSRP of $43,020.

For 2016, a 3.5-liter direct-injection gasoline-powered V6 engine with 295 horsepower and 267 foot-pounds of torque powers the RX 350 and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. (A hybrid model is also available.)
