Lexus LX600 2022: Flagship SUV That Can Go Anywhere

Lexus LX600 2022-  After Toyota launched the latest generation Land Cruiser earlier this year, you must be wondering when Lexus will update its LX series models. However, Lexus is finally launching the latest generation of the Lexus LX series after 14 years. Lexus is holding the world premiere of the new Lexus LX in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and its video reveal online. The new Lexus LX embodies Lexus' commitment to meeting the needs and lifestyles of diverse consumers. The Lexus LX is scheduled to go on sale in Japan in early 2022.

Exterior and Interior Details

Branded the "ultimate sport-utility flagship", the LX 2022 features an evolutionary design with a prominent spindle grille consisting of seven floating bars with a hollow center for engine cooling. Designers also give larger air intakes and slimmer headlights. Do not forget there are daytime running lights with a three-dimensional design. Behind the sculpted hood, the A-pillar has been pulled backwards to create a more backward cabin design. This model also features a sleek body design, which contrasts with the more prominent wheel arch and is supported by 18, 20, or 22-inch alloy wheels.

On the back, the traditional "L" logo has been replaced with the letter "Lexus" as in the 2022 NX. We can also see connected taillights and new bumpers. Lexus did not release detail dimensions, but said the model maintains a wheelbase of 2,850 mm. It will likely limit interior space, but according to Carscoops, Lexus notes this figure has remained consistent since the first-generation LX was introduced in 1995. While the exterior is evolutionary, the same can also be found in its interior as it adopts a more modern design.

We can see premium leather, wood trim and metallic accents in the interior. There is also a digital instrument cluster and a premium Mark Levinson 25-speaker audio system available. The biggest change is Lexus' all-new interface system, as in the 2022 NX. However, it is not immediately available because the SUV has two different screens measuring 7 and 12.3 inches. Larger screens are focused on displaying navigation, camera display and audio settings, while smaller screens relate to climate control systems and information displays. Lexus said, "Displaying camera images on the top screen can simultaneously display the status of real-time vehicles on the bottom screen, allowing drivers to monitor driving conditions off the highway more safely without switching views."

Diverse Types of Options

Although Lexus did not elaborate on many specifics, the company confirmed that the 2022 LX 600 will be offered in Standard, Premium, Luxury, Ultra Luxury, and F Sport variants. Starting with the F Sport, the model is distinguished by a mesh grille with black chrome surround as well as exclusive 22-inch forged alloy wheels. This type of F Sport also features sport seats and textured leather on the steering wheel for better grip. The changes aren't just accessories, as the F Sport features a uniquely tuned damper as well as a revised adaptive variable suspension and electric power steering system. They joined Torsen's exclusive slip differential to improve performance.

While the Ultra Luxury type is more towards luxury because it has two individual rear seats with curved headrests, seat backrests, and padding that "wraps" the head, hips, and lower body gently for maximum comfort and support. The seat also has a soft urethane to help suppress unwanted movements. The rear seats are separated by a wide console equipped with wireless charging, cup holder, and a large storage box with a DC power supply as well as a USB port and jackheadphone for the infotaiment system in the back seat. Lastly, the Ultra Luxury variant comes with overhead ceiling vents for better cabin cooling.

Under the hood, the 5.7-liter V8 engine has been replaced by a new twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 409 hp and 649 Nm of torque. This means there is an increase of 26 hp and 103 Nm of torque. Lexus also notes the engine maintains its maximum torque to about 3,600 rpm, which improves off-road performance as drivers typically perform off road at low speeds. The engine is connected to a new ten-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the previous eight-speed gearbox and features a low first gear for a smooth start and strong low-speed off-road driving performance. However, that's because it has two extra gears and the tenth keeps engine revs low at high speeds, resulting in quiet driving and more efficient fuel consumption.

Finally, the Lexus LX 2022 is equipped with a Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 safety sense system. Its features are Pre-Collision System with Frontal Collision Warning, enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking. It also includes All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Tracing Assist (Lane Centering) and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist. Not to forget this latest Lexus LX is also equipped with Intelligent High Beams, Emergency Steering Assist, and Road Sign Assist. Considering the SUV market is also very popular in the country, it is not impossible that Indonesia will also be part of the latest model of the Lexus LX. Moreover, the previous generation was also quite popular, it seemed to be just a matter of time.
