Next-gen Lexus LX SUV Details Leaked, Could Debut Later This Year

Leaked documents have hinted at three trims on offer


  • Will be based on the new Toyota Land Cruiser LC300.

  • All three trims get a 4x4 drivetrain and an automatic gearbox.

  • Likely to be provided with the new Toyota Land Cruiser’s 3.5-litre V6 twin-turbo petrol engine.

  • Could arrive in India by 2022.

Following the unveiling of the new Lexus NX SUV, a leaked document has surfaced, revealing details of Lexus’s upcoming flagship offering, the next-gen LX. The SUV, to be based on the new Toyota Land Cruiser LC300, will be called the LX600.

Interestingly, there’s a third trim on offer, besides the Standard and F-Sport. Now, it's hard to tell whether it would be an armoured-protection version of the LX or an all-new trim. As per this document, all three will get a 4x4 drivetrain and automatic transmissions. 

Current-gen Lexus LX used for representational purposes

We think the new LX could second the Toyota Land Cruiser in ditching V8s for V6 motors. For reference, the Toyota Land Cruiser gets a 415PS 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol and a 309PS 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 diesel. The existing LX570 has a 5.7-litre V8 petrol engine pushing out 362PS and 530Nm. We could also have a hybrid option, considering the carmaker’s detailed roadmap focusing on electrification. 

Now, to the styling. We did get a glimpse of the SUV in the online presentation video for the NX, but it had been kept under wraps. Still, we could spot the familiar L-shaped DRLs and what seemed like a restyled grille up front.

Expect Lexus to debut the next-gen LX towards the end of this year. Here in India, we might have to wait until 2022 for the new SUV, which would, of course, come at a premium over its predecessor that retails at Rs 2.32 crore (ex-showroom).
