Expected to ditch the V8 in favour of a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6.
A hybrid version is highly probably.
The new Toyota Land Cruiser was introduced in early August.
The Lexus LX, Toyota’s luxury brand’s flagship SUV, has always been different from most other premium large SUVs. As a truly capable and rugged off-roading rig given its Land Cruiser roots, it was reserved for those who truly appreciate what it is over the latest technologies and most sophisticated powertrains.
This is about to change as the all-new Lexus LX will be assembled on an equally all-new ladder-frame structure and feature a slew of upgraded and improve driving components and dynamics.
With certainty, the 5.7-litre V8 is no more as it is no longer offered with the Land Cruiser and Tundra. With little or no doubt, the LX will be powered by a choice between a twin-turbocharged twin-intercooled 3.5-litre V6 that could produce roughly 389 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft. of torque. Alternatively, and likely the version we see in the image (LX 600), a hybrid version will be available. It will be based on the V6 with a 10-speed automatic transmission (motor-generator located in the bell-housing) and its output will be 437 horsepower and 583 lb.-ft. of torque.
The level of technology will skyrocket with new larger touchscreen displays, a digital instrument panel, and much much more.
The all-new 2022 Lexus LX will be revealed on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, 12:30 pm EST.
