One of our biggest complaints about the Lexus RC had to do with its frustrating to use infotainment system, but now Lexus has fixed that for the 2023 model year. The big update to the 2023 Lexus RC is the availability of a new 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, while an 8-inch touchscreen is standard.
There aren’t really any other big changes to the 2023 RC, other than the addition of an F Sport Special Appearance package and an Incognito exterior color option for the RC F Track Edition.
The RC is available in a few versions: RC 300, RC 300 AWD, RC 350 , RC 350 AWD and RC F. The RC 300 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, thats mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The RC 300 AWD is powered by a 260 hp 3.5-liter V6 that’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The RC 350 and RC 350 AWD are powered by a 311 hp 3.5-liter V6. The RC 350 can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 5.8 seconds. Lastly the RC F is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 with 472 horsepower.
