2019 Lexus RCF shows that this will be very interesting and exciting year for Lexus. Not only that they change their SUV models, but they continue with sporty vehicles like this one and improve everything which has not been changed for a long time. When it comes to RCF, it is a model that has not been changed since 2015, so numerous buyers and fans cannot wait to see what they changed this time. We were able to see a prototype on test driving and predict few things, too.
Spy photos we made during test driving showed that 2019 Lexus RCF is even sportier as before, but with a touch of luxury and great details. The front end has recognizable wide mesh grille with modernized LED lights which are incorporated in hood line. Below them are small fog lights and the bumper is lowered to the ground. The rear end has redesigned line, with a thin spoiler on the truck door while sloped roof ends in the rear window. The feeling of sportiness is provided by large 19-inch tires and four exhausts on the rear bumper.
Sporty design as main in 2019 Lexus RCF dominate in the cabin of the car, in combination with a luxury which always comes with this manufacturer. The seats are wrapped in white leather but shaped like classic sporty seats, fulfilled with sporty pedal and modern and sporty dashboard. When we speak about the dashboard, it is very simple without many disturbing buttons and commands and has large old-fashioned air vents. That is actually all we saw through the window on spy photos and predicted in accordance to design in the current model.
When it comes to the engine that will be found in 2019 Lexus RCF, everything is in the domain of rumors and expectations. However, we predict that there should not be many changes from the last model, meaning that it could have 5.0-liter V8 with 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque. With some improvements and adjusting, there could be even more horses under the hood, like 471 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. The transmission should not be changed, so it comes with the same eight-speed automatic transmission. However, some rumors said that we should expect one more engine option and that is 4.0-liter V8 petrol engine with 600 horsepower and 471 pound-feet of torque.
