Lexus prices next-gen LX flagship SUV

Less is more: The new V6-powered Lexus LX develops greater outputs than the outgoing model’s V8s did.

New Lexus LX 500d, 600 variants launch in Australia next month from $148,800 + ORC

18 Mar 2022

LEXUS Australia has announced pricing and specification details of its 14-strong line-up of LX 500d and 600 variants ahead of the model’s April debut.


The Japanese premium brand’s flagship model, which sharing its V6 turbo-petrol and -diesel powertrains with the Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series, produces more power and torque than the outgoing model’s V8 powerplant, while also improving fuel economy and CO2 emissions.


LX 500d variants are equipped with a 3.3-litre twin-turbocharged diesel engine developing 227kW and 700Nm – improvements of 27kW and 50Nm over the outgoing LX 450d – while LX 600 variants receive a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged petrol mill producing 305kW and 650Nm, which are increases of 35kW and 120Nm over the outgoing 5.7-litre V8.


Priced from $148,800 (plus on-road costs) – or $58,900 more than the LandCruiser 300 on which it is based – the seven-seat Lexus LX features the Japanese luxury marque’s new Tazuna cockpit, in which the design and layout of the controls and information displays are presented in a manner that “allows for quick and easy operations with the least movement of the eyes or body”.


The dashboard is dominated by a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment array, complemented by 7.0-inch lower display and 8.0-inch driver-info display. A full-colour head-up display is also fitted.


Furthermore, the Lexus Safety Sense+2 system introduces additional functions to the full-size model, with features such as intersection-turn assist and emergency steering assist added to the LX’s comprehensive range of driver assistance- and safety technologies.


And the LX’s high-tech assistants extend to the vehicle’s off-roading systems, with the combination of Multi-Terrain Select and Multi-Terrain Monitor providing what Lexus says is “precise vehicle control and positioning on challenging terrain”.


The LX further offers crawl control at speeds below 10km/h, as well as a new turn-assist function that applies braking to the inside wheels to tighten the upper large SUV’s turning radius.


Other specification highlights include 20-inch alloy wheels, LED lights, active height control suspension, heated and electrically adjustable front seats, leather-accented upholstery, Shimamoku Black ornamentation, wireless phone charging, and a 25-speaker Mark Levinson premium audio system.


Lexus will further offer the “entry-grade” LX 500d and 600 variants with an Enhancement Pack, which adds 22-inch alloy wheels, a moonroof and handsfree powered tailgate for an extra $5000.


On the five-seat Sports Luxury grade (from $165,800), we find premium leather-accented upholstery, with front-seat heating and ventilation, a heated steering wheel, central cool box, dual rear-seat entertainment system, as well as new Takanoha ornamentation – a wood veneer precisely crafted to create a pattern resembling hawk feathers.


The LX also incorporates a finger-print sensor built into the push-button starter for added security and, for the first time, will be available in F Sport guise (from $171,800)


The “dynamically and stylistically enhanced” F Sport grade includes a rear torque-sensing limited-slip diff, front and rear performance dampers, darkened 22-inch alloy wheels and a black mesh grille.


Inside, five-seat F Sport variants include F Sport seats with additional bolstering, an F Sport steering wheel, aluminium garnishing, and the option of Flare Red upholstery.


Finally, the LX range is topped by the flagship Ultra Luxury four-seat model (from $210,800), which is available exclusively with Lexus’ twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine under the bonnet.


With individual captain’s chairs in the rear – replete with a 48-degree reclining- and massaging functions, deluxe headrests, passenger-side ottoman, and quilted upholstery – the opulent Ultra Luxury includes a unique rear centre control with a touchscreen display for seat and ventilation controls, a wireless charging pad, two USB-C ports and additional storage functionality.


Six exterior colours are available: Sonic Quartz, Titanium, Liquid Metal, Onyx, Graphite Black and Khaki Metal. F Sport grades feature the exclusive White Nova hue in place of Sonic Quartz.


All LX variants are offered with a three-year membership to Lexus’ Encore Platinum program, a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty, and three years’ capped-price servicing. Service intervals for the LX range are set at six months or 10,000km (whichever comes first) and are priced at $595.


"As a leading luxury lifestyle brand, Lexus aims to give its customers the luxury of choice, and the all-new LX range does just that," said Lexus Australia CEO John Pappas.


"With two powertrains, four model grades and three seating layouts to choose from, exacting LX customers can choose the perfect variant to suit their lifestyle."
