Lexus quietly made big price cuts to its 2018 RX hybrid and hybrid F Sport SUV's, while raising the price $50 for the gasoline base model. The price for the 2018 RX 450h hybrid, which is all-wheel-drive-only, has been lowered by $7,340 to start at $46,690 with the $995 destination fee. The price for the F Sport version of the hybrid has been cut $5,440 to start at $52,050. If you just put one of those big red bows on a 2017, this may not make you happy.

Meanwhile, the gasoline front-wheel-drive 2018 RX 350 starts at $44,265, including $995 destination, and the all-wheel-drive RX 350 starts at $45,665; both are up 50 bucks from 2017. But the RX 350 F Sport models will be slightly cheaper at $49,915 to start for front-wheel drive and $51,315 for all-wheel drive. Both are down $200 from 2017.
Features of the F Sport models of the 350 and 450h include a sportier suspension, 20-inch wheels, and some sportier exterior and interior trim.
The new 2018 RX 350L, a slightly stretched version with a small third row, will start at $48,665 including destination for front-wheel drive; add $1,400 for all-wheel drive. The new model was unveiled in November at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. Lexus said at the unveiling that a hybrid version of the three-row is due this spring, but it has not yet been priced.
The two-row, five-seat versions of the RX are largely unchanged for 2018 and continue to use a 3.5-liter V-6 Used Engine making 295 horsepower in the RX 350 and, with the electric motor, a combine 308 hp in the RX 450h hybrid.
