In order to compete with powerful rivals like the BMW 4 Series and the recently introduced Mercedes C-Class Coupe, Lexus has to offer a complete range of engines for the current RC Coupe. Introduced last year, the 2016 RC Coupe benefits from new engines. The new RC 200t and RC 300 AWD join the RC 350.

The new RC 200t, available as RWD only, adopts a 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with intercooler paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This engine produces 241 hp and has 258 lb.-ft. torque at 1,650-4,400 rpm. Lexus developed the turbocharged engine in-house, first integrated it into the NX 200t luxury utility vehicle for 2015 model year, and modified it for application in RC 200t, IS 200t and GS 200t.

Lexus offers the new RC 300 AWD with 255 hp and 236 lb.-ft. torque at 2,000-4,800 rpm for drivers who may encounter inclement weather. The RC 300 AWD features a modified 3.5-liter V6 engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.

On the outside, the 2016 RC Coupe features a new signature paint color, called Infrared, that uses a contrast layering paint technique that was pioneered on concept vehicles.

The RC 200t F-Sport and 350 RWD F-Sport now offer optional orange brake callipers and Limited Slip differential. Performance dampers are standard for RC 200t and available for RC 350 RWD F Sport. Eminent White Pearl exterior paint replaces Starfire Pearl.
