Imaginative technology. Brave design. Exhilarating performance. Build your Lexus RC and choose between three engines, F SPORT upgrades and All-Wheel Drive. The 2021 Lexus RC delivers high tech in high style. Offerings include two potent V6 engines, plus a turbocharged I-4. F SPORT versions of each push exhilaration further.
By monitoring current conditions, the rear-biased all-wheel drive system automatically distributes engine power from 30/70 to up to 50/50 between the front and rear axles. This helps provide optimum traction—even in inclement weather or on less-than-ideal road surfaces.
Available class-exclusive Dynamic Rear Steering adjusts the angle of the rear wheels by up to two degrees to help provide optimal agility and stability. It makes calculations based on vehicle speed and driver input, delivering performance on demand.
The 3.5-liter V6 engines of the RC 300 AWD and RC 350 deliver 260 and 311 horsepower, respectively. A highly rigid platform, double-wishbone-type front suspension and multilink rear suspension provide crisp turn-in and poise through curves.
