Current Model
The redesigned 2022 Lexus LX 600 wraps the next-generation Toyota Land Cruiser in an upscale package, with a powerful turbocharged V6 engine. It remains true to its heritage, starting with a body-on-frame construction and a solid rear axle.
It is powered by a 409-hp 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine matched to a 10-speed automatic transmission, geared to address both low-speed off-road needs and efficient highway cruising. Four-wheel drive is permanently engaged, but low-range gearing should enhance the LX’s off-road capability. The outgoing LX has a comfortable ride and a quiet, lavish, and well-assembled cabin. Handling is lackluster but ultimately secure. The new LX comes with Lexus Safety System+ 2.5, a suite of features that includes FCW, AEB with pedestrian and bicyclist detection, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, lane centering assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam headlights.

2021
This luxury SUV is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, itself quite plush and upscale. Power comes from a strong 5.7-liter V8 shared with the Tundra pickup.
This engine got only 14 mpg overall in the Land Cruiser we tested. The LX has a comfortable ride and a quiet, lavish, and well-assembled cabin. Handling is lackluster but ultimately secure, and the LX is very capable off-road. Like the Land Cruiser, the LX has an off-road crawl mode that manages throttle and braking over rough terrain. The height-adjustable suspension further enables the LX to traverse off-road. Unfortunately, the power-folding third-row seat folds up to the sides, limiting cargo space. A five-passenger version is also available. FCW, AEB, BSW, and rear cross traffic warning are standard.

2008-2020
2008 Redesign Year
Lexus uses a rebadged, more upscale Toyota Land Cruiser for its top-trim SUV. Dubbed the LX, it is one of the few SUVs that manages to be both capable off-road and civilized on pavement.
It has a slick powertrain, a comfortable ride, and a quiet, nicely appointed cabin. Added features over the Land Cruiser include a height-adjustable air suspension and a power-adjustable steering wheel. Five adults can fit quite comfortably and cargo space is generous. The 2008 redesign brought a 5.7-liter V8 engine and a power folding third-row seat, which unfortunately consumes cargo room. Our tested Land Cruiser only got 14 mpg overall, but was impressive off road. The crawl mode manages throttle and braking over tough terrain.  A five-passenger version is new for 2018.

It has a slick powertrain, a comfortable ride, and a quiet, nicely appointed cabin. Added features over the Land Cruiser include a height-adjustable air suspension and a power-adjustable steering wheel. Five adults can fit quite comfortably, and cargo space is generous.
