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.
