2018 Lexus Rx450h Is Way Cheaper Than The 2017 Model

2018 Lexus RX450h is way cheaper than the 2017 model

The dawn of a car model's new model year often means a slight increase in price across the board. Sometimes, though, a company goes the opposite direction, and in the case of Lexus, goes way in the opposite direction. For 2018, Lexus slashed the base price of the RX450h hybrid by $7,340 versus the 2017 model for a total of $46,690. The price reduction isn't only for the normal RX450h, the F Sport version sees a major decrease of $4,090 for a new starting price of $53,400.

The purely gasoline-powered Lexus RX350 line doesn't get the same deep discounts for 2018. They actually increased in price, but only slightly. Normal RX350s, both front- and all-wheel-drive, are $50 more this year. The same goes for the F Sport versions of the RX350.

2017 Acura NSX With Custom Exhaust Runs The 1/4 Mile In 11 Seconds

Unlike the Tesla Model S, Challenger Hellcat or McLaren 720S, we haven't seen the 2017 Acura NSX doing a lot of quarter-mile runs.

Some might say the reason is that it doesn't have a monstrous amount of power, with a reasonable 581 PS (573 HP) and 686 Nm (506 lb-ft) of torque at its disposal. Well, reasonable for a modern supercar, that is.
