2022 Lexus LX600 Will Be Revealed October 13 and Its Coming to the US
2022 Lexus LX600 Will Be Revealed October 13, and It's Coming to the U.S.
We won't get the 300-series Land Cruiser in the U.S. but will get this upscale LX600 sibling with a twin-turbo 3.4-liter V-6.
- Lexus will reveal the new LX luxury SUV on Wednesday, October 13, at 12:30 p.m. ET.
- It's the more upscale version of the new 300-series Land Cruiser, which won't be sold in the U.S. Lexus has confirmed to Car and Driver that the LX600 will be sold here.
- The new LX is expected to use the same 409-hp twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V-6 that powers the global Land Cruiser.
Toyota won't sell the new 300-series Land Cruiser in the United States, likely because previous versions didn't sell well here. However, we will be getting the new model in the form of a more luxurious Lexus, the luxury brand has confirmed to Car and Driver. The LX600 will be revealed on Wednesday, October 13, at 12:30 p.m. ET.
It's likely that the LX600 will replace the current LX570 model's 5.7-liter V-8 engine with the new twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V-6 that's found in the global version of the Land Cruiser and the new Toyota Tundra full-size pickup. In the Land Cruiser, it makes 409 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, and a hybrid version could arrive later. It will use a 10-speed automatic transmission and have standard four-wheel drive.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A teaser image from earlier this year (above) revealed similar L-shaped headlights and the famous Lexus spindle grille, but this new image shows the SUV will have a similar boxy shape as the Land Cruiser—at least in the rear. Unlike the Toyota, however, its taillights are connected by a light bar, and the rear window is slightly more canted forward.
Check back here for all the details on the 2022 Lexus LX600 next week. We'll update this post with a link to the live reveal when one becomes available. The new LX should go on sale early next year starting at around $90,000.
