The 2021 Lexus RC F Track edition pushes a gorgeous design and overwhelming performance to new boundaries. It showers the super aura of Hot wheels and performs ballistic moves on the track. The model has been ushered by Lexus, Toyota’s luxury division and the addition of the moniker RC to Lexus stands for ‘Radical coupe’. The track edition caught the attention of the audience at the North American International Auto Show when it first dropped the curtains in January 2019. The model is the part of the first RC F generation instigated for the 2014 calendar year. With the RC F Track Edition, Lexus dials more power and a decent soundtrack with a more aggressive chiseled look to the already capable RC F.

2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Lexus proves the paragon in the area of reliability with all the models; it has a quintessential history of showering good numbers in reliability and stands in the good race with the practical point of view. Since its inception, it has busted the chart with the parameters of good performance and simply leaves the buyers in awe. Even Lexus RC F Track Edition is believed to bring top-notch reliability with its great build quality and quality materials. Although we don’t have present ratings to show, J.D. Power reports of previous models depict a satisfactory image of Lexus RC F Track Edition.

Reliability and Ownership Costs

Lexus RC F Track embellishes the buyers with the great build quality and practicality. Even the buyers have reported a positive response in favor of the model as it adheres to the basic norms of practicality and performance. Neither the 2021 model nor the 2020 model has received J.D. Power ratings. However, the 2017 model received an overall 87 out of 100 from J.D. Power and scores great quality and reliability ratings of 85 out of 100 along with a top score of 86 out of 100 in-dealership experience. Considering the great build quality and Lexus’ rep, we expect great J.D. ratings in the future.

Maintaining Lexus RC F Track is not cumbersome as the brand gets the top-graded after-sales service which becomes hassle-free for the buyers. But depending on the driving habits and several other factors, repairs are not that price-friendly. For RC F Track Edition average ownership cost is not available, but an idea can be taken from the Lexus RC F, whose average ownership cost comes around $90,732 over a period of 5 years.

The model remains cautious in the area of recalls and tries to fix all the glitches that were last seen. Neither the present model nor base model has had any recall. But NHTSA issued one recall in 2019 related to the failure of the fuel pump, which may alter the risk of fire. But the company replaced the defective part and this was not seen since then in any of the models.

Warranty

Lexus offers wholesome warranty coverage in its package which makes it a trusted partner in the automotive market. The 2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition comes with 6 years or 70,000 miles powertrain warranty. Along with the powertrain warranty, buyers also get a limited warranty of 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. The model justifies every inch of warranty to be called a decent and practical car.

Criteria

Period

Limited warranty

4 years/ 50,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Powertrain warranty

6 years/ 70,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Complimentary scheduled maintenance

1 year/ 10,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Apart from a decent limited and powertrain warranty package, the model offers 1 year or 10,000 miles complimentary scheduled maintenance which makes it highly competitive with the top rivals like BMW and Mercedes.

Miles Per dollar

Since we do not have a complete idea of what the entire cost of ownership would be, we are unable to calculate the MPD ratio. The said ratio is achieved by factoring the average number of miles driven in a year to ownership costs like financing, insurance, fuel costs, and service/ maintenance costs.

2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe Buying Advice

There’s the only choice when buying RC F Track Edition, as no other option has been given. But this is enough to deal as the model comes with tons of standard features and a sumptuous V8 which any gear head will fancy.

Is buying a used Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe a good idea?

Lexus RC F Track Edition has enrolled a strong pavement in the automotive industry with its giant feet but the model has not taken huge time in the market, as it went out on sale in 2019, so there are fewer used RC Fs available as for now and buying a used car means you have compromised with the latest features over reduced cost. However, this model never faced any difficulty in reselling because of decent residuals and mainly because it’s Lexus.

No depreciation reports are available for the RC F Track Edition, but Depreciation reports of the Lexus RC F depict that, the model will lose 49% of its value in the span of 5 years.

In comparison to its rivals, the 2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition takes pole position with the 2021 Porsche 911 Carrera S. But AMG GT bangs all the heads of the competitors with enthralling power and torque figures. Lexus also manages to bring out decent figures but still can beat top contenders while being the cheapest here.

2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe Acceleration and Braking Performance

The Lexus RC F Track Edition can cover the 0-60 MPH mark in less than 3.96 seconds and the quarter-mile mark in 12.4 seconds; these numbers are possible because of 5.0L Naturally Aspirated V8 and fast-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. The model can attain a top speed of 172mph. The launch control system and slightly shorter final drive ratio (from last year 2.97:1 to this year 3.13:1) also helps to achieve lightning-fast off the line acceleration.

With great build structure, RC F Track Edition has potent power to halt, with the help of Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, four-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), and Brake Assist.

2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe Fuel Economy

7.0/10

The Lexus RC F Track Edition manages to offer stellar fuel efficiency of 16 MPG in the city and 24MPG on the highway. The combined figure comes out to be 19 MPG. With the fuel tank capacity of 19 gallons, this vehicle can easily attain the combined range of 331 miles and highway range of 418 miles. The presence of a V8 engine sort of erodes the efficiency on offer.

Lexus RC F Track Edition gets a decent fuel economy with the above EPA offerings, but Mercedes beats the rivals with maximum range. Although most of the competitors come with engine start/stop and eco driving modes, the Lexus with its NA V8 yells a big nay to all the downsizing shenanigans.

  • Red Carbon Fiber Interior Trim

2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe Safety

9.0/10

Lexus has always been very concerned about the safety packaging in its products and keeps it as a top priority. They prefer the new methodology for the safety measure to achieve the next level reassurance. The added driver assistance features make you drive less worrying.

However, the safety on offer in the 2020 model can bring some light into the topic.

  • Auto Leveling High/Low Beams
  • Backup camera with Dynamic Guidelines

2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe Competition

2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe vs. 2021 Porsche 911 Carrera S

Porsche is a cult, to be honest, but Lexus also manages to grab the buzz on the roads with its performance. Both these are equally competitive but Porsche gets the superior acceleration, although RC F Track Edition is closer too in terms of acceleration, still, Porsche gets the upper hand. However, RC F gets the lighter body with its carbon fiber covering which makes it highly attractive and the V8 is just irresistible.

2021 Porsche 911 Carrera S

2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe vs. 2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Coupe

In terms of brand, Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Coupe surely has that amazement to attract the buyers without much discussion on numbers. But, true petrolheads won’t just buy the car just for the sake of the brand. The AMG GT coupe comes with tons of standard features and gets decent fuel efficiency but still, it can’t beat Lexus Track Edition.

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Coupe

Not only is the Lexus more of a driver’s car, it ticks the right boxes which the Merc does but only to some extent.

2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe Final Verdict

The 2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Coupe truly falls as an arbiter of taste for gearheads. It revs with a sumptuous V8 engine which is nothing short of magnificent. Not just that, the model after losing weight looks highly enticing with the carbon-fiber galore. Although this beauty was a bit slow in adopting modern technology, still better late than never. So in a nutshell, the RC F in its special Track Editon guise is something of a gem that a lucky few can own.
