2021 Lexus LX Now Available, Few Changes Announced

The current-generation LX was introduced as a 2008 model.


  • The 2021 Lexus LX starts at $86,580 in the United States, $111,900 in Canada, before freight and delivery charges.

  • The LX 570 is equipped with full-time AWD and a 383-horsepower, 5.7L V8 engine.

  • The LX gets a new Inspiration Series in the U.S. and a new Black Line Sport Edition in Canada.


The 2021 Lexus LX full-size luxury SUV soldiers virtually unchanged, except for some minor additions that apply mostly to the U.S.-market model.

The LX 570 is the brand’s biggest and poshest utility vehicle, and gets the biggest available engine as well. Its 5.7L V8 produces 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque, managed by an eight-speed automatic transmission that feeds a full-time all-wheel drivetrain. The SUV’s towing capacity is rated at 7,000 pounds or 3,175 kilograms.

In the United States, the 2021 Lexus LX is offered in two-row or three-row configurations, and only the latter can be equipped with the Sport package. The latter receives new 21-inch alloy wheels, a redesigned sport front grille, body-colour side mirrors with chrome accents, a sport lower valance at the rear, a black headliner as well as semi-aniline leather upholstery.

A new Inspiration Series package is available in the U.S. three-row LX 570, which wears either Black Onyx or White Pearl paint, a black chrome grille, smoked headlight bezels and black 21-inch alloy wheels. Black semi-aniline leather with Rioja Red accenting and a black headliner can also be found in the Inspiration Series variant, and only 500 units will be produced.

Amazon Alexa compatibility has been added to the LX in the United States as well, but not in Canada. Both countries can choose the new Nori Green Pearl paint and Glazed Caramel interior—Black and Cabernet (red) are still offered as well.

The Canadian-spec 2021 Lexus LX won’t be getting the Inspiration Series, but rather a Black Line Sport Edition with a satin chrome grille, black alloy wheels, sport front and rear bumpers, sport side steps, LED headlights and a liftgate-mounted spoiler. The LX is only offered in Canada with three rows of seats.

Pricing for the LX, which competes with the Cadillac Escalade, the Range Rover, the Mercedes-Benz GLS, the Infiniti QX80 and the Lincoln Navigator, starts at $86,580 in the USA, before adding the $1,025 freight and delivery charges. In Canada, the LX 570 retails from $111,900 before the $2,095 freight and dealer prep fees.
