After a deep facelift dating back to 2015, the full-size Lexus LX SUV was not happy with the news, clearly preparing for a big update.

If you remember that this model was originally built on the basis of the Land Cruiser 200, then after the change in the generation of the Land Cruiser 300, one should expect a serious modernization and its premium twin.

This is indirectly confirmed by the manufacturer himself, who in February last year shared his plans to release the new Lexus LX in 2022.

At the same time, the Japanese promised that the new product in terms of the number of luxury options and the level of comfort would move further away from the Land Cruiser and become on a par with the Bentley Bentayga.

Latest news about the new generation

All that can be confirmed to date is that the 2022 Land Cruiser and Lexus LX retained the frame structure and received lightweight new bodies.

The appearance of hybrids in the engine range will also be inevitable, and for the LX it will most likely be the V6 TwinTurbo Hybrid version.

It should be expected that the updated Lexus will continue to be produced in two- and three-row versions, although its dimensions allow the use of the second version as a base one.

Most likely, the Japanese will try to surprise with the equipment, because the announced increase in status should have good reasons.

It will have to start from the current Luxury level, which features four-zone automatic climate control, as well as ventilation and heating for the first and second row seats.


Absolutely nothing is known about the exterior of the 2022 Lexus LX model year, besides, the Japanese, even in anticipation of the release of the updated SUV, find time to update the car of the current version.

The most recent example is the Lexus X 570 S, which has been prepared for the Australian market.

Today it is the most expensive modification there, costing $ 168,767, for which new bumpers, new two-tone 10-spoke wheels and a glossy black radiator grille with 70 separate inserts instead of the usual mesh in its filling have been designed.

Also in the doors of such a car, a backlight appeared, projecting the inscription «LX S» on the ground.


Considering that the interior of the latest version of the SUV after the update was tried to be as close as possible to the atmosphere present in the «passenger» models of the brand, something similar should be expected in the new crossover.

The current 12.3-inch center display is likely to give way to a larger one (it is already 14-inch on the compact NX), and the dashboard will have to completely get rid of analog technology and go digital.

It is also possible to predict further development of the concept by minimizing the physical buttons on the front console, which will certainly lead to the appearance of touch panels that allow you to control the «climate» and numerous on-board systems.

Technical stuffing

Last year, the Japanese confirmed the development of a new 4.0-liter biturbo V8, but it may not go to the new LX, as it should become an exclusive «chip» for the all-new flagship Lexus LQ, which is also preparing for its debut.

This could force the designers to keep the 5.7-liter V8 with 367 hp. from. and a 4.5-liter diesel G8 (272 hp).

Also, do not forget about the upcoming hybrids, which can be based on gasoline twin-turbo V6.
