2013 Lexus RX 350 vs Mercedes-Benz GLK vs Infiniti FX37 0-60 $53K Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best new all-wheel-drive luxury
Crossover that you can buy for $53,000.00? That's the question we wanted to
answer in this TFLcar Mashup review. Is it the new and refreshed 2013 Lexus
RX 350 or is it the new and refreshed 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 4MATIC or
is it the new and refreshed 2013 Infiniti FX37 AWD? The Lexus represents
the most popular vehicle in the segment, while Mercedes-Benz is packed full
of new safety technology and of course the Infiniti is the most sporty of
the three. In this fun TFLcar Mashup review we not only rate all three
Crossovers but we also see which one is fastest from 0-60 MPH.
Lexus RX450h review - What Car?
Read the What Car? Lexus RX450h review
The Lexus RX450h is one of the greenest full-size 4x4s, so running costs
are impressively low. It's stacked with kit, it's nicely refined on the
move, and there's plenty of space for five people plus luggage.
The steering is short of feel and tyres sometimes find themselves short of
grip. The CVT gearbox takes some getting used to, and the ride can be

A Special Tour: 2010 Lexus RX350 Full Tour
This is one tour I promised to my Youtube friend, user name
CandiceMichelle27, awhile back. I never got the opportunity to do a good
solid tour of the new RX350, ever since I worked for Lexus last year. Well
now was my chance, and you might say I went to some extremes to get this
tour. I underestimated how hot the black leather interior of a black car
can get! It was 97 degrees out yesterday when I did this tour and this was
the only RX on the lot that was open, so yeah I got really hot, really
fast! Anyways, even though there's not a start up due to it being Sunday
and no keys, I hope you enjoy the tour C.M.27, and all the rest of ya!

► 2012 Lexus RX 350
The Lexus RX 350 teams a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a six-speed
Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) for an
output of 270 horsepower at 6,200 rpm.
Intake and Exhaust manifolds have been
tuned for enhanced performance and fuel economy. Lexus maximized the
torque output to better meet the needs of luxury crossover drivers. Ninety
percent or more of the 248 lb.-ft. of peak torque is available from 2,300
to 6,100 rpm, an optimal range where torque is most utilized. An insulated
engine cover, styled in the shape of two cylinder banks, conceals the V6 to
help ensure a quiet cabin; easy-access points facilitate routine service.
Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) is used to control
both intake and Exhaust camshafts
independently, optimizing engine performance at all speeds and loads.
Refinements to the valvetrain, including roller rocker arms and slimmer
valve stems, reduce friction and weight to improve fuel economy. Also
helping to enhance torque is the improved Acoustic Control Induction System
(ACIS), which varies the intake runner length in response to engine speed
and throttle position. The ETCS-i (Electronic Throttle Control System with
intelligence) softens throttle response during initial acceleration for
smoother takeoff and to help reduce wheel spin.
The RX 350's six-speed automatic transmission yields a quick shifting
response with help from miniature high-flow linear solenoids that control
transmission-fluid line-pressure. The torque converter uses a low-speed
lockup damper to enable lock-up from second to sixth gear to help improve
the fuel economy.
When applying the accelerator pedal rapidly during kick-down, the
direct-downshift control allows the transmission to directly shift from
sixth to third or fifth to second, skipping the intermediate gears to
achieve the quickest response. Under normal kick-down pedal application,
downshift control uses the intermediate gears to ensure the smoothest shift
is attained. "Shift shock" is further reduced.
The Multi-Mode Sequential Shift Automatic Transmission allows the driver to
shift manually when desired by first moving the gated shift lever to the
"S" slot and then pushing it forward ("+") to up shift and backward ("-")
to downshift. An Intelligent Shift Control sets shift patterns based on
the vehicle speed and throttle position and estimates road conditions and
driver input to automatically control the shift pattern. For example, when
driving in hilly areas, this system can prevent unnecessary shifting. When
descending inclines, the transmission prevents up shifts to achieve more
The RX 350 AWD model features an electronically controlled Active Torque
Control AWD system. Active Torque Control AWD uses an electronically
controlled coupling ahead of the rear differential to vary torque
distribution anywhere from 100:0 to 50:50 front to rear, depending on
driving dynamics and road conditions. When accelerating, or starting off on
a low-grip surface, torque is quickly provided to all four wheels. At
steady speeds, torque is sent only to the front wheels, enhancing fuel
To help provide handling agility and control, the AWD system increases
rear-wheel torque when the vehicle's front tires start to lose traction and
decreases rear-wheel torque when the vehicle's rear tires start to lose
traction. On rough or sandy terrain, an AWD LOCK switch provides enhanced
traction performance for low-speed maneuvering (if in LOCK mode, the system
reverts to AUTO mode when speed exceeds 25 mph). To help prevent a tight
corner-braking condition (shuddering) during low-speed cornering, the
system reduces rear wheel torque.
