With the long-awaited reveal of Toyota’s Land Cruiser 300 having been revealed earlier this month, its Lexus LX cousin is not too far off and according to new reports out of Japan, it will be somewhat more powerful than the LC 300.
Japanese website Creative311 recently reported that the new LX750h model will be powered by a hybrid version of the 3,5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine found in the new LC 300, and which – incidentally – was a Lexus motor to start with. Assisted by an electric motor, the Lexus LX will reportedly offer outputs of around 358 kW and 870 N.m, which is 53 kW and 221 N.m more than what you get in the non-hybrid Toyota version. According to CarAdvice, the new 3,3-litre turbodiesel motor will also be offered as an option in the new-generation Lexus LX range.
As with the current generation, you can expect the new LX to share its basic architecture with the Land Cruiser 300, while gaining an edgier and more chrome-laden exterior design and a more luxurious cabin. The LC’s new Multi Terrain Select system is also likely to find its way into the Lexus version, as will the Multi-Terrain Monitor that displays hidden objects in front of the vehicle.
According to CarAdvice, the new Lexus LX is set to make its global debut towards the end of 2021.
