A more than worthy Land Cruiser successor.
As well as showing off two modified versions of the IS sedan, Lexus is showcasing the new 2022 LX600 at this year's SEMA aftermarket tuning show, where it's on display towing the RC F GT Concept that debuted back in 2014 on a custom Lexus Racing trailer. Notably, this is the first time the 2022 Lexus LX600 has been shown to the public in North America, and it looks even more menacing in the metal.
Even in a show filled with wild aftermarket creations attracting your attention, this luxury barge has plenty of presence thanks to its imposing design. With its massive spindle grille staring at you, you can't exactly miss it.
Specifically, the model on display here is based on the new F Sport trim, which is available for the LX for the first time. Unique styling touches for the F Sport include exclusive 22-inch forged aluminum wheels, an F mesh design spindle grille with jet-black chrome grille frame. While the model showcased here in Las Vegas is finished in black, the LX600 F Sport is also available in an exclusive Ultra White color.
Inside the luxurious interior, the steering wheel and shifter are wrapped in leather for improved grip and F Sport emblems are applied throughout the cabin. A 12.3-inch touchscreen and a seven-inch lower screen come as standard.
Under the hood, the all-new LX600 is only available with one engine option: a new 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 producing 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent through a robust four-wheel-drive system and a ten-speed automatic transmission. Riding on the same GA-F platform as the overseas-only Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series, the new LX600 is 440 pounds lighter and 20 percent stiffer than its immediate predecessor.
In the US, deliveries of the 2022 Lexus LX600 will start in Q1 2022. Pricing has not been announced yet, but expect it cost more than the outgoing model, which starts at $86,930.
