2023 lexus rx sharpened up by chassis tuning and visual mods from toyota racing development
The Lexus RX looks more aggressive and aims to handle better with parts from TRD.

Toyota Racing Development, known as TRD, has announced a series of upgrades and visual modifications known as F Sport parts for the new 2023 Lexus RX SUV, with a focus on improving handling and visual aggression.

The Lexus RX, in its flagship RX500h Performance variant, is already a fairly handy thing, with a 2.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine paired with two electric motors for a total 273kW and 551Nm output.

TRD’s aim, it seems, it not only to give the RX a bit more bark to match its bite, but also help it make the most of its power and torque with suspension modifications.

Under the bodywork, a steel front ‘performance damper’, or sway bar, and a similar addition to the rear aim to reduce noise and vibration while steadying the RX through high-speed cornering.

Sports mufflers and a rear diffuser are also part of the kit, while options of 20- and 21-inch forged aluminium wheels set the RX off with a little bit more individual style.

Similarly, the front spoiler lip and side skirts, as well as a roof mounted spoiler and ‘aerodynamic’ side mirror covers top off the TRD F Sport parts list.

Unfortunately for most of the world, the upgrades are only available in Japan, with pricing in Yen.

In Australia, the Lexus RX kicks off from a starting price of $87,500 before on-road costs for the RX350h Luxury 2WD, topping out at $126,000 for the aforementioned RX500h Performance.

It arrives in local dealerships in the first quarter of 2023.
