As the debut of the next-generation Lexus LX SUV looms ever closer and the Land Cruiser J300 is now fully revealed, rumors and speculation about the range-topping Lexus SUV are heating up. The latest insight comes again from Creative Trend, a Japanese car blog and website.
Creative Trend offers a few interesting nuggets:
- In addition to the previously mentioned LX 600, a range-topping LX 750h will come as the LX line’s flagship model. If rumors are to be believed, the LX 750h could arrive packing the 3.5L twin-turbo V6 mated to a hybrid system and produce a system total of 480 horsepower and 642 lb-ft of torque.
- The core LX 600 is expected to produce 410 horsepower and 480 lb-ft from just the 3.5L twin-turbo V6 alone.
- Ordering for the new LX will begin in September 2021 and ordering for the current model has ended as Lexus clears out inventory to prepare for the new model.
- Based on rumors, the LX is expected to evolve into a super luxury trim of the Land Cruiser.
- Infotainment will be an upgraded version of Lexus Interface, first seen on the 2022 NX, but on a 17-inch, even higher definition screen.
- The fourth generation LX will be the first to employ a fingerprint authentification starting button as an additional security measure.
