Lexus gave its LX a sweeping bumper-to-bumper upgrade to design, luxury, and performance for the previous model year and added standard Lexus Safety System+ with emergency automatic braking. The LX makes an unforgettable entrance wherever it goes, thanks to the bold Lexus signature spindle grille, framed by elegant satin chrome trim. Standard LED headlights, turn signals and foglamps provide a captivating lighting signature.
Wherever the LX goes, it does so powerfully with a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces 383 horsepower and delivers 90-percent of its 403 lb.-ft. of peak torque at just 3,600 rpm. It’s teamed to an 8-speed automatic transmission that shifts with renowned Lexus refinement. This outstanding team helps endow the LX with a 7,000-pound towing capacity.
Drive Mode Select, as used in other Lexus vehicles, allows the LX driver to tailor powertrain and suspension responses by using a dial on the console. The system also controls responses of the Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), which continually adjusts shock absorber damping rates while driving, helping to ensure optimal comfort even as the road surface changes. Prioritizing comfort or agility is as easy as twisting the dial.
