The 2022 Lexus LX 600 Is a Luxe Land Bruiser

Toyota's Land Cruiser lives on with the more luxurious LX 600.

The Toyota Land Cruiser was ‘Yota’s top-shelf off-roading machine. Sure, the Toyota 4Runner is good, but if you’re really trying to go anywhere, especially in style, you’ll want a Land Cruiser. Lexus was part of that game, too, with the LX. Though the Land Cruiser might have overshadowed the LX-Series on the street, the Land Cruiser isn’t hitting American shores.

That’s not a problem for the 2022 Lexus LX 600. The new model sports many of the same upgrades headed to the Toyota Tundra: A new 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 replaces the outgoing 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V8. While it’s dropped cylinders, the turbocharger compensates and helps this 3.5-liter make 409 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Managing that power is a standard 10-speed automatic transmission, which feeds the standard all-wheel-drive system.

On this episode of Quick Spin, host Wesley Wren climbs behind the wheel of the 2022 Lexus LX 600, walks you around the new SUV, and highlights the vehicle’s styling and interesting features. Wren also takes you along for a live drive review, which shows off how the vehicle feels in real-time. In addition, Autoweek’s West Coast Editor Mark Vaughn joins the discussion, and the two talk about the LX’s styling, its purpose, and what makes the 2022 Lexus LX 600 special.
