Lexus announced today that the 2023 RC will get a few mild updates over the previous model year in the U.S. For those updates, customers will be asked to pay a little more for their two-door premium coupe this year.
Lexus says that the RC and RC F will be available with an updated 10.3-inch touchscreen for 2023, though it remains the same size as the optional infotainment screen offered in 2022. The standard screen, meanwhile, remains at eight-inches. In addition, the car’s instrument panel has been updated, as have the glove box and the side registers.
Overall, though, the RC remains largely unchanged in the coming year, and familiar trim levels are offered. They include the RC 300, which is powered by a 2.0-liter, twin-scroll turbocharged inline-four that makes 241 hp (180 kW/244 PS) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque.

Those prices are $1,500 and $1,650 higher than they were in 2022. Adding AWD to the model, meanwhile, adds more than $2,000 to the price of the vehicle, with the RC 300 AWD starting at $48,160 and the RC 300 AWD F Sport starting at $52,380, increases of $1,500 and $1,765 over their 2022 counterparts.
Moving up the range, the RC 350 is powered by a 3.5-ilter V6 that makes 311 hp (232 kW/315 PS) and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque.

For those who want more power, there’s the 5.0-liter V8-powered RC F. Its big engine makes 472 hp (352 kW/478 PS) and prices start at $67,845. That makes this quite the bargain, as compared to 2022, because the price has only increased by $475.
Finally, the limited RC F Track Edition returns in 2023, after being replaced by the RC F Fuji Speedway Edition in 2022. The package adds a carbon fiber hood and roof, a fixed rear wing, black and blue Alcantara interior trim, Brembo carbon ceramic brake discs, and new Hitachi shocks. The model will also be offered in a new color for 2023 called Incognito. Pricing for the model starts at $100,720, $1,525 less than the Fuji Edition.
Keep an eye out for the new model, as Lexus says that the new 2023 RC will start arriving in dealerships early this year.
