Lexus Brunei reveals its allnew LX 600, a true flagship SUV that combines reliabilit­y, durability, and remarkable offroad capability with handcrafte­d artistry and refinement.

The all-new 2022 Lexus LX delivers a re-engineered body-onframe platform and evolutiona­ry

and luxurious design changes -inside out.

Since the first LX model was launched in 1989, 500,000 units of the LX have been sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.

The SUV has been well-received for its high-quality, ride comfort, and driving performanc­e and is designed to rove the land in whatever terrain, regardless of conditions.

According to Lexus, the new generation LX was designed to provide the driver and passenger with exceptiona­l comfort, while maintainin­g a traditiona­l bodyon frame structure to ensure reliabilit­y, durability and driving performanc­e.

It represents the brand’s commitment to addressing the changing needs and lifestyles of its customers.

To meet the diversifie­d lifestyles of its customers, Lexus establishe­d the new LX’s driving concept to be: “Ease and quality on any road in the world”.

Nex-Gen Design: Inside Out

With “Dignified Sophistica­tion” as the styling concept, the aim was to give the new LX high-quality, sophistica­ted proportion­s.

Its exterior allows the vehicle’s strength to be felt in a form that displays attention to detail, while its interior provides a sense of security and comfort to the vehicle’s occupants

Outside, the all-new Lexus LX is definitely a head-turner; based on the Lexus’ next-generation design language, which harmonizes functional­ity and elegance.

The SUV exudes the perfect blend of athleticis­m and accessible functional­ity, and striking beauty. The design language incorporat­es modern detailing and smooth flowing lines. It is the perfect balance of beauty and the beast.

In front, the all-new LX makes a bold statement with its refreshed interpreta­tion of Lexus’s signature spindle grille that features a threedimen­sional shape and a frameless structure, giving the SUV a more polarising look.

This striking front fascia is further emphasised by sharper headlights with integrated L-shaped daytime running light.

At the rear, the flagship SUV follows the design as seen on the 2022 NX, replacing its signature ‘L’ emblem with a clean and unified ‘LEXUS’ lettering on the tailgate.

The exterior of the LX wins on the first impression, but its premium interior is equally as stunning.

As you should expect from the Japanese automaker, the all-new LX comes with premium-feel materials throughout the cabin.

Inside, every component in the Lexus LX has been meticulous­ly designed to deliver a more seamless and intuitive connection between the driver and car to help enhance concentrat­ion on driving.

Aside from high-quality materials, the new NX features the first Lexus Interface dual display with 12.3-inch display featuring navigation, audio controls and the Multi-Terrain Monitor and a lower 7-inch touch screen, for a more comfortabl­e driving experience.

The all-new LX’s interior fully incorporat­es the Tazuna Concept, a cockpit concept that allows the driver to intuitivel­y connect with the car and concentrat­e more on driving operations.

Moreover, the centre console and layout have a clean design and accessibil­ity making it easier for the drivers to be connected and be in control.

With generous dimensions for all passengers, it benefits from the highest level of technology aiming to ensure a modern and global approach of comfort which includes Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay, a 10-speaker sound system and more.

Other features include the latest voice-recognitio­n function that enables activation via voice commands by saying a predefined activation word, for example, “Hey Lexus!”.

The New GA-F platform

In terms of dimension, the latest Lexus LX rides on an all-new platform, the GA-F platform which serves as a strong foundation for its body-on-frame build.

The GA-F platform features a lower center of gravity with a weight reduction of approximat­ely 200 kg when compared to its predecesso­r, and body rigidity is also increased.

Moreover, the new GA-F platform has been adopted in pursuit of on-road and off-road driving performanc­e. The vehicle’s front/

rear weight balance has been optimized by placing the engine further back.

The new LX also inherits the golden ratio of a 2,850 mm wheelbase, which has been inherited across generation­s and provides both high-level performanc­e on rough terrain and a spacious interior.

Under the hood and safety features

Under the hood, the all-new LX will be available with a newly employed high-output, hightorque 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo gasoline engine.

The 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo gasoline engine delivers maximum output of 305 kW (415 PS) and maximum torque of 650


More refined vehicle control in both on-road and off-road situations is enabled by the new Electronic­ally Controlled Brake (ECB) system and Electric Power Steering (EPS).

When it comes to safety, the Japanese automaker is ahead of the game. The all-new LX comes with the evolved and comprehens­ive Lexus Safety System+ package setting a new benchmark for accident risk detection and prevention measures.

Notable safety features include Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Pre-Collision System (PCS) , BladeScan AHS (Adaptive High Beam) and many more.

The F-Sport package

The 2022 Lexus LX also offers the optional F-Sport package that includes exclusive 22-inch forged wheels and an iconic mesh design spindle grille with the jet-black chrome grille frame expresses the intrepidne­ss of the F SPORT.

The sporty styling continues in the cabin with its newly developed dedicated steering wheel, the front seats, aluminum pedals, and shift lever have been exclusivel­y designed to enhance the image of driving performanc­e.

The exclusive F SPORT emblem is also applied throughout the interior to reinforce the image of driving performanc­e. Also, the emotional Flare Red interior color is newly available to promote the uplifting feeling of spirited driving.

In terms of driving performanc­e, the F SPORT features front and rear performanc­e shock absorbers, a Torsen® LSD, and a rear stabilizer standard equipment.
