TORONTO: Boldly go further in a vehicle that is beyond extraordinary. The Lexus LX 600 – the full-size luxury SUV with no equal – is available in four distinctive packages for 2023, each delivering style, comfort, capability, technology, and safety as only Lexus can.
“The Lexus LX series sets the standard for ultra-luxury and off-road capability, fitting of the flagship position in the Lexus SUV range,” said Martin Gilbert, Director of Lexus Canada. “This full-size luxury vehicle commands both on and off the road, while providing guests with an experience driven by unmatched levels of luxury and human-centric technology.”
The LX 600 delivers performance without compromise, thanks to a high-output, high-torque 3.5L twin turbo V6 that produces 409 peak horsepower and up to 479 lb-ft of torque. This is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and complemented by an electronically controlled braking system and electric power steering. Every LX 600 features a full-time four-wheel-drive system enhanced by active traction control, crawl control, downhill assist control, and a five-setting multi-terrain select system. The result is refined control in both on- and off-road situations.
Performance and style are both enhanced by the Global Architecture-F platform that enhances on-road refinement and off-road prowess. The GA-F platform is lighter yet more rigid, enabling Lexus engineers to revise LX’s fundamental characteristics – giving the LX 600 a lower the centre of gravity, reduced vehicle weight, optimized weight distribution, and enhanced body rigidity. The result is the Lexus Driving Signature – unparalleled stability, balance, and responsiveness, plus performance and handling designed to deepen the driver’s connection to both the vehicle and the terrain it travels.
The LX 600 is also the only SUV in its class built using authentic body-on-frame construction. This sets the standard for all-surface capability and all-weather performance. Isolating the LX 600’s cabin from the frame also helps reduce vibration and harshness, for a quieter and more comfortable ride that’s worthy of a flagship luxury SUV.
The LX 600 is a commanding SUV from the very first glance. Its power and capability is wrapped in a sleek, sophisticated body featuring premium triple beam LED headlamps, LED rear combination lamps and full-width blade tail lamps, cornering lamps, a power tilting/sliding moonroof, power adjustable and heated exterior mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, and a rear spoiler.
Inside, most models offer space for seven in three rows of generous and comfortable seating, while the Executive VIP package ditches the 3rd row seats to create a generous cabin for four with rear seat centre console. An ambient cabin lighting system welcomes driver and passengers. The power-adjustable driver’s seat is enhanced with the easy access memory system. And the Lexus Climate Concierge keeps everybody comfortable.
Every LX 600 features the Lexus Interface – a North American designed, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-compatible multimedia and connectivity system with a 12.3” touch screen display, Bluetooth connectivity, Sirius XM Satellite compatibility, and a roof-mounted shark fin antenna. Lexus Interface incorporates a natural language virtual assistant that enables a voice-first approach to navigation, media, communication, and other vehicle features. In addition, all Lexus Interface connected services may be controlled from a smart phone equipped with the Lexus App.
As a Lexus, every LX 600 is impressively equipped with state-of-the-art safety features, starting with Lexus Safety System + 2.5. This portfolio of active safety technologies supports the driver’s awareness and decision-making under a range of traffic conditions and contingencies. Other standard safety systems include the Lexus Panoramic View Monitor and Multi-Terrain Monitor, Intuitive Parking Assist with Auto Braking, the Blind Spot Monitoring System with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Brake, and the Star Safety System.
