Lexus RX 300 Overview

Introduced in 1998 for the 1999 model year, the Lexus RX300 represented a new direction for both SUVs and family travel. Lexus billed the RX as a 'crossover' vehicle, falling somewhere between a luxury sedan and a sport utility. Its origins were indeed car-like: it is build upon the same platform as the Toyota Camry.

This pioneering effort from the Japanese manufacturer included a 3.0 Liter V-6 which provided 220 horsepower and 222 lb.-ft. of torque. The RX was available in two trims: Front Wheel Drive nd full-time AWD.

Throughout its five years of production, the RX pleased some drivers while disappointing others. Those expecting a true SUV were surprised to learn the RX was much more of a car. Those who simply anticipated a Lexus got what they expected: luxury, performance, and reliability.
