Lexus LX Specifications & Features
A large, cutting-edge, full-size luxury SUV that hasn’t compromised on its off-road capability is the 2023 Lexus LX. The LX600, which is based on the recently discontinued new Toyota Land Cruiser, has a 409-hp twin-turbo V-6 engine, a 10-speed automated gearbox, and four-wheel drive. Rivals like the Cadillac Escalade and BMW X7 provide a bigger experience with a third row that is more appropriate for adults, but the LX600 has other advantages. It’s designed for those who don’t mind getting sand in their toes rather than being cold and corporate. The LX600 has a soft ride, adjustable air suspension, and plush seats, making it the definition of glide. However, due to its sturdy body-on-frame design and Land Cruiser heritage, it is a luxury SUV that is content to travel across rough terrain.
Lexus launched a brand-new LX last year, and there won’t be any significant alterations made to it until 2023. The broad center console between the front seats, which creates a cozy cockpit setting, is the first indication of the new LX’s opulent interior makeover. The LX has a high-end appearance and an opulent atmosphere thanks to its quilted leather seating, leather-wrapped dashboard, wood trim, and smoked-chrome highlights.
Lexus LX Engine, Power, Performance & Acceleration
A twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V-6 engine with 409 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque powers the LX600. Both four-wheel drive and a 10-speed automatic gearbox come standard. This engine debuted in the latest Toyota Land Cruiser, which has the same mechanical foundation as the LX. Given Lexus’ preference for hybrid powertrains, we wouldn’t be shocked to see a gas-electric system powering the LX, similar to the one found in the 2022 Tundra pickup, but the brand now only provides this non-hybrid powertrain. The twin-turbo V-6 on the LX delivers sufficient power and a smooth quality appropriate for a luxury vehicle on the road. During testing, the LX600 achieved a 6.1-second 0–60 mph time, which will be sufficient for most drivers.

LX’s dashboard features three standard screens: an 8.0-inch gauge cluster, a 12.3-inch infotainment display, and a separate 7.0-inch screen for climate and vehicle controls. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included. Wireless charging is available, and a 25-speaker Mark Levinson surround-sound system can be added with LX Luxury or LX Ultra Luxury trim.
|2023 Lexus LX Trims||Price (USD)|
|LX600 F Sport Handling||$106,370|
|LX600 Ultra Luxury||$132,250|
The Luxury trim, which adds luxuries like semi-aniline leather upholstery, a Mark Levinson music system, and attractive 22-inch wheels, is in our opinion the greatest bargain here. However, value is a relative concept when discussing six-figure SUVs. You should choose the Ultra Luxury trim if you want luxury that can compete with the Range Rover or top-tier BMW and Mercedes vehicles, but doing so reduces the number of seating options to just four.
