4th-gen Lexus LX breaks cover with a V6, new top trim
The Japanese automaker has unveiled the fourth iteration of its flagship SUV LX. Moving the model to GA-F architecture enabled it to shed 200 kg (440 pounds) of weight while becoming much more rigid at the same time.
You can tell the new Lexus LX from its older siblings by its redesigned lighting and spindle grille. There is a ‘Lexus’ caption on the tailgate now instead of a badge, and the taillights have a thin LED strip connecting them.
Inside, there are two middle displays, the lower 7-inch one providing HVAC controls and useful real-time information. The upper one measures 12.3 inches across and provides access to multimedia, navigation and electronic assists.
For the first time on record, the LX can be ordered in a four-seat top trim that features two captain’s seats in the back with a HVAC touchscreen between them and two more touchscreens on the front seat backs.
The drivetrain is the same as in the latest Land Cruiser: a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 hits ten-speed automatic transmission with 415 PS (409 hp / 305 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque.
