The 2022 Lexus LX is due to arrive in Australia come April, with the upmarket off-roader offering the most comprehensive array of tech in any Lexus model.

Lexus Australia has confirmed specifications for its incoming LX range, with the all-new model set to hit Aussie shores from April 2022 priced from $148,800 before on-road costs.

Based on the Toyota LandCruiser 300 series, the LX will feature the same twin-turbocharged V6 diesel and petrol engines as the LandCruiser, while 4 trim levels will be offered.

LX 500d models have a 3.3-litre diesel which has the edge on torque with 227kW but a beefy 700Nm. The LX 600 petrol boasts a larger 3.5-litre that makes a healthy 305kW and 650Nm. Both come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and 4-wheel drive as standard.

Across all variants is the most comprehensive range of standard tech in any Lexus model, with an 8.0-inch driver display and colour head-up display, dual 12.3-inch and 7.0-inch centre screens, "Hey Lexus!" speech recognition, BladeScan adaptive high beam system, 25-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system, 360-degree camera system, wireless phone charging and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

All models also feature the complete Lexus Safety System+ range of active safety tech, including pre-collision detection, turn assist, emergency steering assist, blind-spot monitor, radar cruise control, lane tracing assist, road sign assist and tyre pressure monitoring.

Base LX 500d and LX 600 models come fitted with 7 seats, with 10-way driver and 8-way front passenger power adjustment. Leather upholstery and Shimamoku wood trim are standard, as is heating for both front seats.

Stepping up to the F Sport models drops the seat count to 5 but adds sports seats clad in perforated leather and offered in a range of exclusive upholstery colours. It also sports Hadori aluminium trim and aluminium pedals and scuff plates.

The real changes come on the outside of the F Sport though. It stands out with a jet-black mesh-pattern grille and 22-inch alloys wheels, the largest fitted to any Lexus LX yet. A Torsen limited-slip rear differential, performance dampers, adaptive variable suspension and an F Sport-specific steering tune also feature.

Sport Luxury models stick with the 5-seat layout, but add some special touches, including Takanoha ornamentation – handcrafted 3-layer wooden trim designed to imitate the feathers of a hawk. It also gets a tech boost with the addition of a couple of 11.6-inch rear screens to keep passengers in the back entertained.

Finally, the range-topping LX 600 Ultra Luxury – offered exclusively with petrol power – is all about opulence rather than off-road capability. Its cabin only offers luxurious seating for 4, with the 2 independently power-adjustable second-row seats boasting heating and ventilation, a 5-stage massage function and an independently adjustable ottoman. They can also be reclined up to 48 degrees and offer 860mm of legroom.

A range of seven colours will be offered – Titanium, Liquid Metal, Onyx, Graphite Black, Khaki Metal, Sonic Quartz (all models bar F Sport) and White Nova (F Sport only).

All LX variants are covered by a 5-year unlimited kilometre warranty, along with 3 years of capped price servicing costing $595 each visit to the dealer. Do note, though – servicing is required every 6 months/10,000km.

The 2022 Lexus LX is set to go on sale in Australia from April 2022.
