Engineered with the largest engine of any Lexus vehicle, the LX 5.7-liter V8 is loaded with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence, an advanced eight-speed paddle-shift transmission and bold acceleration.
The LX rewards those who crave supreme power, on and off the asphalt. A lockable center differential and two-speed transfer case give the LX an off-road advantage as technologies like Crawl Control with Turn Assist, four-wheel Active Traction Control and Multi-Terrain Select deliver intelligent performance.
Full-time four-wheel drive with four-wheel Active Traction Control automatically responds to changes in road conditions, sending power to the wheels that can handle the engine's prodigious output—with no extra effort from the driver.
This extremely soft perforated leather is dyed all the way through, unlike leathers with conventional surface dyes. A higher grade of leather must be used since imperfections cannot be hidden.
With 28 vents throughout the cabin, the LX features a standard four-zone climate-control system that allows you and your passengers to select ideal temperature settings. To help keep the air pure, an air filter helps to remove allergens and dust, and a smog sensor can automatically activate the recirculation mode that's designed to prevent pollutants from even entering the cabin.
For the ultimate in versatility, there's a power-sliding, 60/40-split middle-row seat with a 40/20/40-split seatback, plus a power-folding, 50/50-split third-row seat.
Unlike anything else in the world, the stunning design of the available Linear Dark Mocha or Linear Espresso steering wheel and matching trim combines the organic feel of natural wood with a layered look that evokes modern art. The result of 67 steps of craftsmanship over 38 days, the wheel is formed from many layers of thinly cut wood, bonded together and meticulously shaped and buffed to align with the look of the wood on the instrument panel.
Every Lexus is backed by a comprehensive warranty that should give you miles and miles of confidence. But in case you wanted to extend your peace of mind, you'll find a variety of plans available, including ones for longer-term care, one that covers accessories and another in the event of a total loss of your Lexus due to theft, fire or accident. Take a look below to learn more about your standard coverage, as well as additional coverage options.
This system can detect sideslip of the wheels while cornering, and helps to control it using modulation of engine power and selective application of individual brakes. It works in conjunction with the Anti-lock Braking System and Traction Control to help improve driver control under some adverse conditions.
Intuitive Parking Assist utilizes inconspicuous sensors integrated into the front and rear bumpers that are designed to detect surrounding objects. Using audible tones and an indicator on the multimedia display, the system can notify you of a detected object's location and proximity, helping with routine tasks like parallel parking.
Operated with the Panoramic View Monitor and harnessing the added visibility of a virtual under-vehicle camera, the Multi-Terrain Monitor can check terrain and tire location underneath the LX during demanding off-road excursions. Displaying dynamic information like tilt gauge and wheelspin, the Multi-Terrain Monitor works with Multi-Terrain Select to keep drivers informed of off-road conditions and the vehicle's immediate surroundings.
The TORSEN® torque-sensing limited-slip center differential with electronic differential lock efficiently distributes engine power between the front and rear axles, optimizing traction in all conditions. Four-wheel Active Traction Control helps keep you securely on the road by using sensors on all four driving wheels to detect the onset of wheel slippage and automatically apply the brake to the slipping wheel. In addition, power is automatically shifted to the wheels with the most traction.
