Is the Lexus RX based on a Toyota Highlander?

A blue 2023 Toyota Highlander Hybrid midsize SUV is parked.

The Lexus RX and Toyota Highlander look similar on paper. The two SUVs are similar in size and use some similar powertrains. Both are tall, large SUVs that seat many people and can be ordered with two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. While the new 2023 RX and the 2023 Highlander are related, they are not the same.

The new 2023 Lexus RX is not based on a Highlander

For 2023, Lexus has completely redesigned the RX. It’s part of Lexus’ new goal to make SUVs and cars less boring, and with the new 367-horsepower RX 500h F Sport Performance version, it’s likely to succeed. It uses the latest version of Toyota’s GA-K platform, which is shared with the RAV4.
