Lexus Informative - RX 350 Payload
For information. I just purchased a 2010 RX 350 AWD Lexus. The sticker on the door and the manual say that the payload is 825 lbs. Four guys slightly over 200lbs without luggage would break the weight budget. To put it another way, me, my wife, daughter and son-in-law (both thin), 5 year old grandson as well as the dog also blow the weight budget. Can't even think about luggage. I checked the Lexus web site as well as the vehicle brochure and nowhere could I find a payload figure. All the other pertinent spec information seemed to be there. Intentional omission, hope not? Also, checked the tire rating to see if the payload rating may have been due to a poor rating on the tires. It doesn't appear so. This is somewhat disappointing and may be a factor in considering the purchase of this vehicle. I would appreciate any information on why the payload figure is low. Roll over consideration, suspension, etc.
