About Lexus RC 200T

The RC was initially available with three engines: the 2.5-liter 2AR-FSE inline-four engine mated to a continuously variable transmission in the RC 300h, the 3.5-liter 2GR-FSE V6 (which was later replaced with the 2GR-FKS from model year 2018 on), and the 5.0-liter 2UR-GSE V8 in the RC F. The RC 200t (now renamed RC 300) was added to the lineup in late 2015, with a 2.0-liter 8AR-FTS I4 turbocharged petrol engine. The RC 300h and RC 350 are available with all-wheel drive.

Lexus RC AWD models employ a full-time all-wheel drive system with a planetary gearset center differential and a multi-disc clutch to act as a slip limiting device. Under normal conditions, the planetary gearset provides a 30:70 front-to-rear torque split for handling agility, but the system can allow for a torque split of up to 50:50 to control wheel slip.
