The updated 2016 Lexus LX 570 has been fully revealed by rogue Instagrammer Hamad1two3 and Australian website The Motor Report — here are all the photos from the last three days:
The changes to the front are extensive — the grille appears to be taken from a previously-unseen Lexus spaceship concept, complete with a shield-like design and massive amounts of chrome:
The changes to the rear are much less pronounced, but still manage to boost up the chrome quotient with chrome L-shapes around the taillights:
Despite the full design being revealed two months ago on Facebook, these real-life photos of the updated 2016 LX still managed to surprise me. Lexus has taken their flagship SUV in a completely unexpected direction — the nondescript Satin Cashmere Metallic exterior does the design no favors, but the LX in black or dark grey is going to be downright intimidating.
Enough from me, what’s your opinion on this update?
Thanks everyone for sending this in, I was away this weekend!
