If you're still on the fence about the new Lexus RX, then check out this video from The Car Care Nut that goes over a lot. He's a tech that specializes in Toyota and Lexus vehicles and gets right to the point.
OMGoat, I am of your same vintage and share your thoughts. First we are forced to compromise on the beautiful sound of the V-8 engine we used over the years...getting used to a V-6. OK, so I am able to accept that. BUT now they throw this wimpy little high-pitched "sewing machine" engine at us....I don't know if I can stomach another downgrade. . So my thinking now is that maybe I can keep the revs relatively controlled by going to the RX350h. I never find myself putting my foot into it anyway and the fuel economy would be nice. Only problem is they don't produce very many of these models and wait times are several months. I just may look around for another 2022 V-6 model and be done with this torture!
