At the LA Auto Show, Lexus revealed a stretched version of its most popular vehicle, the RX 350. While the luxury crossover's wheelbase is unchanged from the two-row version of the RX 350, the new RX 350L adds 4.3 inches to the body length to accommodate seven passengers via a middle row of bench seats. (There's also a six-passenger configuration with middle-row captain's chairs.) Under the hood is a 3.5-liter V6, driving 290 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels, with an all-wheel optional drive available for an extra $1,400. The accompanying RX 450hL hybrid model adds two electric drive motors for a combined 308 horsepower.
Expect the 2018 Lexus RX 350L to hit showrooms in January, carrying a starting price tag of $48,665 (including destination).
