    They are based on the same basic equipment, but are different, as described above. Think of the RX as a Venza with many parts improved, particularly the interior and the noise deadening. It's the same as the difference between the Camry and the ES350, the ES is just a bit better in many ways.

    The specs for the 2013 Toyota Venza and the 2013 Lexus RX350 are NOT the same: The Toyota Venza and Lexus both have a 3.5 liter V-6; but the Toyota engine is rated at slightly less horspower and gets slightly better fuel economy.
    The Lexus has a 19.2 gallon fuel tank; while the Toyota has a 17.7 gallon tank.
    The Lexus has larger wheels and lower profile tires than the Toyota.
    The Lexus has a 4 year, 50,000 mile basic warranty; while the Toyota has a 3 year, 36,000 mile basic warranty.
    The Lexus has a 6 year, 70,000 mile drivetrain warranty; while the Toyota has a 5 year, 60,000 mile warranty.
    The Lexus has a 66.7 inch overall height; while the Toyota has a 63.4 inch overall height.
    The Lexus has a 107.9 inch wheelbase; while the Toyota has a 109.3 inch wheelbase.
    The Lexus has a gross weight of 5560 lbs, and a curb weight of 4178 lbs.
    The Toyota has a gross weight of 5095 lbs, and a curb weight of 3870 lbs.
    The Lexus has a maximum cargo capacity of 80.3 cu.ft; the Toyota's is 70.2 cu.ft.
    The Lexus has a cargo capacity with all seats in place of 40.0 cu.ft; the Toyota has 36.2 cu.ft.
    The Lexus has about 3 inches more front leg room, and 2 inches less rear leg room than Toyota.

    The Lexus typically has more sound insulation and better suspension than the Toyota. These 2 vehicles are obviously carefully designed to have differences which appeal to a different market segment. The $10,000 price difference is not a marketing ploy; there are very real and significant differences between these vehicles.

    Here is a link to the actual differences:

    As I understand it, the Toyota Highlander and Lexus RX350 are the true 'twins'. The Venza, on the other hand, is a Camry-derived platform.

    Actually, all 3 are from the same basic body family, all are within an inch or two of each other in all major dimensions. Here's a comparison of all 3:
