Lexus is bringing two more models to its 2016 RC coupe cars in order to expand the coupe cars that it is offering this year. The RC200t is the first car that it is looking to add to its 2016 RC coupe collection. This car will be coming out with a 2.0 liter, four cylinder turbocharged engine. Lexus will also be adding a powerful V-6 engine, all wheel drive car model called RC300 AWD to its 2016 RC coupe lineup.
This is great news for all the fans of Lexus RC coupe as they will have a wide variety of RC coupes to choose from. This move by Lexus will help it in bringing the RC coupe in line with the IS sedan.
The RC200t RC coupe will be offering a maximum power output of 241 HP and a maximum torque of 258 pound-feet. This R200t RC coupe will be offered with only a rear wheel drive system and does not come with an all wheel drive option. The 2.0 liter engine of the RC200t will be mated with an eight speed automatic gearbox system. This car will also be offered in an F sports optional package.
The RC300 AWD RC coupe will be powered by the same 3.6 liter V6 engine that you find under the hood of the RC350. There is just an improvement in the power and the torque offered by the engine used in the RC300 AWD. It will now deliver a maximum power of 306 HP and a torque of 277 pound-feet. The RC300 AWD engine will be mated to a six speed automatic transmission system that will drive the engine power to all the four wheels of the car. The RC 300 AWD will be an upgraded entry level AWD version of the RC coupe from Lexus.
Both these new models will be offered at a lower price than what you pay to own an RC coupe. The RC200t comes at a starting price of $40, 935, whereas you would have to shell out $43,720 for the RC350 coupe that has the same features of RC200t.The entry level all wheel drive RC300 will be offered at $43,550 whereas its equivalent RC350 AWD comes at a price of $45,955.
If you are ready to shell out more and want to buy the premium 2016 Lexus RC coupe, then you can go for the RC coupe–F sport package that is offered at $63,745 with a 5.0 liter, V8 engine.
