2021 Lexus RX 350 SE Black Line Keeps Luxe SUV In The Lead

If imitation is indeed the fondest form of flattery then the Lexus RX SUV series has tens of millions of imitators to its credit. Since 1998 Lexus has been the leading selling luxury SUV in America.

And though the current generation RX it is well into half a decade old … Lexus continues to hold the edge with special offerings like the new RX 350 F-Sport Black Line edition. This 1,500 unit limited variant leans heavily on cosmetics with the interesting use of literal black line accents on the aggressively 21st century RX styling motif, and the F-Sport accouterments, including a super-supportive articulated and contrasting color leather seating, and dazzling tech and infotainment.

Powered by a 3.5 Liter V6 295 horsepower engine, and available with AWD and also a hybrid for just a few dollars more, the Lexus RX 350 Black Line has a sporty agility thanks to F SPORT-tuned suspension, with independent MacPherson struts up front and double wishbone in rear, and coil springs, gas-pressurized shock absorbers and stabilizer bars.

In addition some driver pleasing performance, expansive and indulgently premium passenger space and amenities supports a $49,000 price-tag.
