2008 Lexus RX Review

Overview
From the sleek stylish lines of the Lexus RX to its redesigned front grille and its black rear spoiler provide outstanding aerodynamics. Underneath the hood of the RX is a 24-valve four-cam 3.5-liter V6 engine which produces a scenery-blurring 270 horsepower. The RX comes standard with a five-speed automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission. By utilizing precise electronic control the RX delivers both excellent response and smooth gearshifts. And on the highway you can look forward to a much quieter ride. Inside the RX you’ll find cockpit styling featuring a control-panel design with metallic-finish accents. And to ensure your comfort even more automatic dual-zone climate control with smog-sensing air filtration is also included. The folding 40/20/40-split rear seats can slide forward or backward with little effort. Also included is a tonneau cover which conceals valuables or loose gear and automatically retracts when the rear hatch is opened for easy loading. With Vehicle Stability Control wheel-speed steering-angle and yaw-rate sensors work together to detect the onset of a loss of wheel traction. If the onset of a skid is identified the system can apply individual brakes and even reduce the throttle to help keep the vehicle on track. Another Actively Safe feature traction control helps deploy power to the appropriate wheels during slippery conditions. The 2008 Lexus RX Forward moving meets Forward thinking.
