Lexus RX Silver

Lexus of Larchmont would love to see residents of Larchmont, New Rochelle, and Yonkers, NY, zipping around the streets of New York in a brand-new Lexus RX. Before you come see us at our dealership and take it out for a test drive, read this review to find out why this vehicular masterpiece may very well be the ideal fit for you.

Powerful Performance

Lexus RX PerformanceThe source of the Lexus RX’s marvelous power lies in its 3.5L V6 engine that produces 295 horsepower. It effortlessly grinds out 268 lb-ft of torque, giving it the ability to get tough and gritty on challenging terrain when you need it. Having a motor with the available juice to help you get through various conditions is always a great feeling.

For those who want even more control on the road, the Lexus RX has optional all-wheel drive capabilities. This system strategically supplies the front and rear axles with engine power, helping the car dig in and efficiently tackle muddy roads, grassy terrain, and thick patches of snow.

Stay Safe in the RX

Feeling secure is a critical part of the riding experience, and Lexus addresses this by integrating a sophisticated safety system into this midsize SUV. A variety of active safety features are offered and each one plays its own part in keeping you secure:

  • Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert: Detects and warns you of nearby vehicles to the side and rear, allowing you to change lanes with confidence.
  • Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM): This optional feature can help prevent skids by automatically activating individual-wheel braking, regulating torque, and adjusting steering when it senses a possible loss of traction.
  • Active front headrests: Limits excessive head movement in the event of a rear-end collision, potentially lessening the severity of a whiplash-related injury.

The RX also comes equipped with 10 airbags. The addition of rear side-curtain and front seat- and rear seat-mounted deployable airbags give you much-needed cushion in the event of a collision.

Technology

The 2021 Lexus RX provides a bevy of convenient modern technology features at your fingertips to keep all vehicle occupants connected and engaged. Connect to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ to play your favorite tunes or connect to Amazon Alexa and listen to an audiobook to help pass the time while stuck in traffic.

These features are easily accessible thanks to the standard 8-inch touchscreen. There’s also an even bigger, wider 12.3-inch touchscreen that is available. Both screens give you the ability to control all entertainment aspects during your journey with the single push of a button. Pull up the available navigation system to find your way around if you happen to get lost on the New York streets or quickly check the climate.
