The Japanese SUV Lexus LX, which is currently preparing for its scheduled update, was captured by spy cameras during test drives conducted by the developer in the United States. Despite the fact that a number of teasers, as well as renderings of the car, have already been published on the Web, the test prototype, as before, is protected by camouflage fabric. It does not make it possible to determine what changes the developer has planned for the model.
The only way to try to identify all kinds of exterior innovations is to carefully study the published pictures. So, in the photo you can make out that the car has received a new head optics (photo: motor1.com). It is almost the same as that installed on the "related" Toyota Land Cruiser 300. You can also note the general visual similarity in the body lines of both SUVs.
The prototype of the new Lexus LX
According to the author of the publication, the photo shows the Lexus LX600 version. This means that under the hood of this SUV there is a 6-liter power unit or a six-cylinder biturbo engine, which is also equipped with the updated Land Cruiser. The capacity of this installation is 409 "horses". In addition, there is information that for the most "charged" version of the LX 750h, the power unit will be additionally equipped with an electric motor that increases the output to 480 hp.
When the new Lexus LX will debut, representatives of the Japanese brand have not announced. If earlier it was announced on the Web that this event could happen before the end of this year, now, due to the shortage of electronic components that absolutely all automakers have encountered, the start of the novelty can be postponed to 2022.
