Lexus RX 300 Models and RX 300 History

Only body color changes were made for the 2000 RX 300 by Lexus. Desert Bronze Metallic was discontinued, replaced by Mineral Green Opalescent. A slew of new features were unveiled for the 2001 model year. They included the addition of BrakeAssist, Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) and a veritable traction control system. In addition, the grille, lights and door accents were revised. A matching and full-sized spare tire was added, and the fuel tank was increased to house 19.8 gallons. Added options included things like upgraded navigation system (DVD-based), bumper protectors, wood trim on the interior and prewired towing configurations (for all-wheel-drive models). No major changes, save for the optional Nakamichi audio system, were made to the 2002 and 2003 model years.
