I'm guessing that price is for a 2012.
As of right now, your pretty much on your own when it comes to getting the best price for a 2012.
Everything is so crazy right now, IMO there are only a few dealerships in certain areas like Cal that are willing to give under invoice deals for the 2012 Lexus.
Many of the below invoice deals you are reading are from dealers who still had rx 2012 that were purchased by the dealer prior to mid Feb, when the invoice price went up around 2k.
I would email around 2-3 dealers even if it means contacting a dealer 80 miles or so away and try to get the best deal you can. Usually the bigger/ higher volumn the dealer, the better the deals on the 2012 RX
Now onto the 2013 RX
From what I have researched dealers are only selling the 2013 for MSRP. There has been some feelers by some, who knew some dealers by name and were able to try to get a oral deal (nothing in writing for a 2013 rx 350) at 1k below MSRP if there is inventory on the lot come sept. But again, its nothing in writing and based off the assumption that by sept, the dealer will be able to discount them more.

I just bought the truck this evening, different dealer with the package I really wanted which was Heads up display, also the 19" wheels, picked it up for $500.00 below invoice. Im sure I left money on the table but I have looked and this was the only one in my area with the color combo and package I wanted. Also the 0.9% helped out too. Thanks all for the replies. Get this the finance manager would not sell me the warranty for $100.00 over invoice, I told him this what I aways pay he told me he would not sell it for that much period and let me purchase the truck without one. I am surprised that his ego got in the way of his company making money and himself. Some of these guys should not be in the postions they are in.

Does anyone have any guidance as to how much negotiating room there is for a 2012 RX450h with MSRP of 56,120? Also any idea as to when the 2013 RX450h will be arriving at dealers?

Hi, I am thinking of buying a new 2012 RX 350. It has AWD, does not have Nav, but has the parking assist. Everything else standard, nothing too fancy. What is a fair price you would pay? Dealer wants 41 but we are concerned that we can get a better price in a few wks/months with the 2013's coming out now? THANK YOU!!

I'm looking into purchasing a 2010 RX350 AWD. I'm wondering if I should hold out on the purchase until the 2013 rx 350 comes out in July. Do you think there will be a be a markdown and how much? Thank you!!!

I was told that 43 for a premium packg. is a great deal but its in Illinois so it all depends where you are located. How much would be for a new2012 Rx with nav?

That's what I'm wondering too, what will the price be in July once 2013's hit. Actually I've already seen 2013's out there for sale right now. I was told that Lexus did something the past few yrs where their older models will sell really fast due to low inventory and thus if you wait you may not get the model you want... at least that's what the dealer said to try to get me to buy now.
#4919 of 5856 rx350 color combination
May 13, 2012 (4:56 pm)
i notice in my inventory check of all dealers in my 200 mile radius they dont have my favorite
color combination white exterior and black interior. i was wondering if the reason is that
its a popular combo or is it undesirable and they dont have many. it seems the gray and
parchement are very easy to find.

we just bought 2012 RX350, white with parchment, premium + park assist + backup w/out navigation. We paid $39K + tax & licence, out the door about $42500.
