The Lexus brand is a household name, and one of the reasons our vehicles have earned such recognition is because of the engines packed underneath their hoods.

If you’re shopping for a new Lexus car in Glenview, IL, look no further than Fields Lexus of Glenview, home to some of the best engine builds on the road today.

Common Lexus Engines: V6

One of the engine builds we enjoy the most is the block found in the 2020 Lexus RX. Roaring beneath the hood of this big crossover is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 295 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque.

This engine is partnered with a continuously variable transmission, and can even be taken up a notch in the Lexus RX 450h. This model is a beefier version of the base model, using two electric motors, a battery pack, and the same V6 to push out 306 horsepower, all while burning far less gasoline.

What About Hybrid Engines?

When it comes to hybrid powertrains, Lexus takes the cake in terms of performance and sheer thrill behind the wheel. The 2020 Lexus NSX hybrid sports car uses a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, an electric motor, and a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to put out a tremendous 573 horsepower and 476 lb-ft of torque, making it one of the best-performing vehicles in our Lexus family.

These are just two of the engine builds you can find at our Lexus dealership. When you visit our Lexus dealers in IL, we’ll ensure that you get a thorough test-drive of your favorite vehicle, so you can experience the power of a Lexus brand car up-close and in-person.
