The new LX would be extremely comparable to the Toyota Land Cruiser, as does the present LX. The next LX will be based on the recently announced LC300 Land Cruiser, but with a stronger emphasis on luxury.
The LX and Land Cruiser will be built on the same base, but Lexus will upgrade the inside to make it more luxurious. It will reportedly use the automaker's latest infotainment system technology beginning with the 2022 NX.
However, certain noticeable differences would set them apart. The top-of-the-line model is said to be the LX 750h, which would employ an electrically assisted version of the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 to produce 480 horsepower and 871 Nm of torque.
The LX 600 would also include the Land Cruiser's twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 with 409 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque. Both would be linked to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
There's no word of the LX getting the Land Cruiser's 3.3-liter twin-turbo diesel V6, which produces 305 horsepower and 700 Newton-meters of torque. However, there is no evidence that the Toyota model would have the Lexus hybrid powertrain, so this may be a strategy to differentiate the goods.
The LX is expected to make its premiere in September and go on sale in December, at least in select countries. Unlike the Land Cruiser, the Lexus is expected to be sold in the United States.
