The RC 350 is powered by the same engine that powers the RC 300, but with the Stoichiometric direct-to-cylinder injection system instead of the Electronic Fuel Injection as found in the RC 300 and the RC 200t, the engine produces 306 horsepower and 277 lb.-ft. of torque.

While the RC 200t and the RC 300 only come with RWD and AWD respectively, the 2016 RC 350 is available in both AWD and rear-wheel drive.  The AWD version comes with 6-sp automatic transmission.

The Lexus RC F 2016 model year continues to be powered by the 5-L V8 engine that delivers 467 horsepower and 389 lb.-ft. of torque.
