Some SUVs are simply rugged off-roaders and nothing else. The Lexus LX 2023 is not one of those. It’s a sophisticated, refined and superior SUV that also just happens to be fully capable of tackling off-road terrain with ease. Inside, you’ll find all the refinement you would expect from a premium model Lexus, with flawless, meticulous attention to detail. Let’s take a closer look at the new Lexus LX and find out why this SUV is Inspired by Greatness.
An off-road capable vehicle doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. The LX has proven that practicality and luxury can go hand-in-hand and the LX has continued to excel in standards of performance, comfort and design. Packed with technological features, the LX delivers a sublime experience for both passengers and driver, while still maintaining those off-road capabilities that can take this big SUV anywhere.
Powering the LX is a V6 3.5Ltr twin-turbo engine. Designed to run as smoothly as a Swiss watch, this superb engine delivers up to 409hp and 650Nm of torque, giving it that colossal power that enables the LX to take on steeper inclines with ease. The twin-turbo set-up makes the LX remarkably fuel efficient too, as the turbos create more power from every drop of petrol.
The result is an engine that has a performance curve that is equal to, if not better than, a conventional V8. A ten-speed automatic transmission ensures that the power is put down smoothly, whether you’re climbing a dune or powering along the highway. Close-ratio gears provide you with super-smooth gear changing and can even help to reduce fuel consumption.
When you take the LX off-road, it delivers a smoother ride even on rocky terrain, thanks to the sports hydraulic Active Height Control suspension system. The Crawl Control mode shifts throttle control from the driver to the onboard actuator to give precise power delivery and eliminate driver fatigue.
If you want to take refinement up a level, the Lexus LX F-Sport is genuinely exquisite. The flare red and black interior are complemented by Hadori aluminium ornamentation to give this exclusive model real character. That iconic spindle grille still takes pride of place at the front, but it’s teamed with 22” alloy wheels for an even greater road presence.
The VIP takes elegant internal touches to a whole new category of perfection. The result is a whisper-quiet cabin with beguilingly attractive trim and reclining Captain’s chairs seating that wouldn’t look out of place in a first-class aircraft cabin.
We’ve all become used to touch-screen technology in our daily lives, and the Lexus LX utilises this in its unique Fingerprint Authentication Start-Stop system. Only registered drivers can initiate the starter. The driver’s information is stored including preferred driver settings such as the seat height and inclination. It also prevents thieves from driving the vehicle away, giving you greater peace of mind.
The Lexus LX combines functionality and exceptional quality into its state-of-the-art infotainment system. The 12.3” touch-screen provides everything from music and connectivity to onboard navigation and is part of a dual-screen system that has replaced the old trackpad set-up. The lower 7” screen is dedicated to vehicle functions and climate control. The 25-speaker Mark Levinson sound system delivers exquisite audio quality to keep everyone entertained on those long road trips.
