2022 Lexus LX 600 : A New Flagship SUV

Lexus is introducing a new generation of its most expensive SUV

 

  • The Lexus LX is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser

  • It is powered by a 3.5L twin turbocharged V6

  • A F-Sport trim is available for the first time on the LX

The LX has been the flagship SUV for Lexus since its introduction in 1995. For 2022, the fourth generation will arrive in North America.

The Lexus LX 600 is a luxury body-on-frame SUV that is very capable off road and comfortable on the pavement.

For 2022, the new generation of LX will let go of the V8 that was under its predecessor’s hood in favor of a 3.5L twin turbocharged V6, similar to the one found in the LS 500, that produces 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission will direct power to all four wheels.

Since the LX 600 shares its platform with the Toyota Land Cruiser, its all-wheel-drive system is very sophisticated and it features all of the hallmarks of luxury off-roaders, such as a two-speed transfer case, crawl control, hill descent assist and underbody protection plates.

An active air suspension helps both off-road driving, by providing an adjustable ride height, and comfort, by varying the firmness of the damping.

An extra measure of comfort is provided by the new VIP Executive trim level which replaces the rear two rows of seats with two captain’s seats that can recline up to 48 degrees and are equipped with foot rests. A special air conditioning system with outlets in the roof allow for a more comfortable experience for rear seat passenger, who can also be entertained by the rear display screen.

Customers who prefer a sportier appearance can select the other new trim level for 2022, the F-Sport. As with other F-Sport Lexus models, the LX 600 F-Sport will feature blacked-out chrome accents on the outside and available red leather on the inside. A stiffer suspension and a limited slip differential will give the SUV better performance.
