2022 Lexus LX 600 Debuts With Twin-Turbo Power

More than a decade and many facelifts later, the Lexus LX finally enters its fourth generation emerging a completely new vehicle that’s stiffer, lighter and more powerful.

The full-size SUV is still as capable as ever keeping its rugged body-on-frame construction, built on the ultra-strong GA-F platform reducing 200 kilograms in weight compared to the outgoing model while increasing rigidity by 20 per cent.

A reinterpreted and striking 3-D spindle grille completely takes over the front fascia comprised of seven sets of floating bars. The frameless design not only looks cool but provides a high degree of cooling as well. The squared off roofline and chunky wheel arches gives the LX an undeniably muscular appearance, and the fresh Lexus tailgate logo ushers in a new era for the brand.

A two-screen Lexus Interface is being introduced in the cabin — 12.3 inches up top and seven below — incorporating a Virtual Assistant allowing occupants to navigate the infotainment system intuitively via voice command. Dual microphones and enhanced noise cancellation drastically improves voice recognition.

The outgoing V8 engine is replaced with a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The SUV sits on adjustable Active Height Control suspension and changes height and dampening according to the selected customizable Drive Mode or Multi-Terrain Select. The latter optimizes vehicle settings for off-roading and features six modes: Auto, Dirt, Sand, Mud, Deep Snow and Rock.

Look for the 2022 Lexus LX 600 to arrive on our shores early next year.
