2022 Lexus LX600 review — Big, bold and what a back seat!

Andrea and Zack of Motormouth have joined the current flood of auto journalists reviewing the 2022 Lexus LX600.   Here is some of what they had to say,

This is a Motormouth couple car review of the all-new Lexus LX600 body-on-frame, large, luxury SUV.

The LX has been totally redesigned from the ground up with new exterior and interior styling plus a new powertrain. This body-on-frame 3-row SUV has a 3.5L twin turbo V6 with a 10-speed automatic transmission, 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque with full time 4WD and active traction control. Gone is the V8 engine and the 8-speed automatic transmission, this twin-turbo V6 offers an extra 26 horsepower and 76 lb-ft of torque compared to the previous model.

The weight of the Lexus LX600 has been reduced by over 440 pounds compared to the previous model and body rigidity has also increased. The new electronically controlled brake system and electric power steering gives the vehicle more control in off-road and on-road situations. The LX has a front double wishbone suspension, rear coil springs, available front and rear air suspension and active height control for improved ride comfort. 22” forged aluminum wheels, the largest size in the Lexus line-up are available for the first time to improve off-road performance. Multi-terrain select with 6 drive modes and crawl mode features are also available including advanced technologies that support off-roading such as a multi-terrain monitor with LX’s first dual display to give drivers the confidence they need in harsher environments.

The instrument panel features Lexus interface with a 12.3” touchscreen which shows navigation and audio controls, the lower 7” screen features climate controls and serves as a driving support screen for the multi-terrain select. The camera image gets displayed on the upper screen while showing the real-time vehicle status on the lower screen. This allows the driver to monitor off-road conditions without having to switch the displays.

The LX 600 comes standard with a 12.3” touchscreen, wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto, a wireless charger, heated leather steering wheel, power driver and passenger seats with memory, heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, heated rear seats, a power rear door with kick sensor, 20” wheels and Lexus Safety System 2.5+ and blind spot monitoring.

The LX 600 can tow 8,000 pounds and has a starting price of $106,950 CAD/$88,245 USD, Premium $96,345 USD, F Sport Series 1 $119,950 CAD/$102,345 USD, Luxury $127,200 CAD/$104,345 USD and our Executive test model is $151,200 CAD/$127,345 USD.
