You may have already heard that the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series will not be coming to North America. At least not yet. Fortunately for some, especially those with good purchasing power, his luxury-oriented brother, The new Lexus LX, yes it will be sold in the US, It is likely to be based on the same TNGA-F platform.
Lexus confirms the arrival of the luxury SUV
Lexus has just confirmed that the new LX will be revealed next Wednesday, October 13We’ll know by midweek if a Land Cruiser alternative is as cool and capable as truck enthusiasts really want it to be.
Then again, it’s not like the last Land Cruiser to hit the country was cheap. When reviewing the 2020 Heritage Edition, it sold for nearly $90,000. Those who crave the Land Cruiser’s next-door off-road vehicle might not be interested in the sleek LX paint or comfortable interior, but if they’re familiar with recent versions of Toyota’s ground-breaking SUV, they probably shouldn’t choose it.
What could be the characteristics of the Lexus LX 2022?
We expect the Lexus LX to feature the same 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo engine found in the Land Cruiser and 2022 Toyota Tundra. Power in both applications is sent through a 10-speed automatic transmission, and if we were to guess, the LX will have all-wheel drive as standard as the previous model. You should also have Land Cruiser Multi-Terrain Select Off-Road Assist along with Technical Four-wheel-Tracking Control.
The multi-link rear suspension is said to increase the quality of the TNGA-F platform and comfort on the road. The latter is something the slightly older LX struggled with. With improvements to it and the interior, especially the new Lexus infotainment system, it’s expected to be a huge improvement over the old model it replaces.
Design-wise, there’s not much more to take away from Lexus’ 15-second teaser other than Heckblende taillights. With that said, there’s not long to wait for us to see it in full on Wednesday at 12:30 PM ET.
