Lexus RX 400h Models and RX 400h History

In 2006, Lexus beat other carmakers to the punch by introducing the world to the first luxury hybrid SUV, the RX 400h. It was loaded with decadent features, underscored by an extravagant design, while boosting a fuel efficient 3.3-liter six-cylinder engine that could produce 268 horsepower. The 2007 and 2008 model years saw minor changes made to trim options, including making cloth seats standard and leather seating optional, amongst a few other subtle changes.
