NEW YORK (April 6, 2015) — Toyota Motor Sales' Lexus division has selected 18- and 20-inch versions of Michelin's Premier LTX light truck/SUV tire line as an OE fitment on the 2016 Lexus RX, the brand's four-door hatchback SUV.
The 2016 version of the Lexus RX, the best-selling model in the brand's 26-year history, debuted at the New York auto show revealing new safety features, new sheetmetal and an optional adaptive variable suspension.
The all-new front end of the RX centers on the company's spindle grille. Bigger fender flares make it look wider from the front, while character lines run from fender to rear.
The RX will arrive with two trims: RX350 and RX450h. The 350 houses a direct-injected 3.5-liter V6 making 300 hp; the hybrid 450h uses an Atkinson-cycle 3.5-liter V6, delivering about 300 hp with help from an electric motor generator.
