The luxurious off-roader has just been redesigned, after 15 years. Obviously, the changes and improvements are significant, which indicates that we won’t be seeing bigger changes in the next few years. According to some sources, the 2024 Lexus LX 600 will get a hybrid powertrain, while many sources talk about the off-road version, though this variant is expected to come already with the 2023 model year. In any case, this model year will have a lot more things to offer compared to the initial version.
In any case, the overall layout won’t change. You may count on a familiar design, which has so many great things to offer, starting from a great combination of luxury and off-road performance. We like the new interior, as well as the peppy V6 engine. Furthermore, the list of standard equipment is very long, whether it’s about tech features or advanced safety systems.
We expect that the 2024 Lexus LX 600 will hit the market sometime in the second half of the next year.
2024 Lexus LX 600 Design
As we already mentioned, this SUV has just been redesigned after so many years. Therefore, there is no doubt that the overall layout will remain the same. The new generation is based on the company’s new TNGA platform, which brings notable weight reduction, improved ride quality and many more. Of course, there is also the new styling, which brings a more elegant iteration of the brand’s well-known spindle grille. On the other hand, the overall dimensions remained pretty similar.
When it comes to the 2024 Lexus LX 600, we expect to see an off-road version of the SUV. This version may come already with the 2023 model year. In any case, we expect to see all kinds of upgrades. We expect to see further suspension upgrades, three locking differentials and other off-road upgrades.
On the other hand, we don’t expect to see bigger interior changes. The overall cabin layout will remain the same, which is certainly a great thing. It looks very stylish and what we particularly like is that its classic design isn’t overwhelmed with tech features. On the other hand, the materials are fine, while the build quality is excellent.
As we’ve just mentioned, dimensions aren’t much different compared to the previous generation. Therefore, the amount of passenger space is pretty similar too. Base versions come with two rows of seats, while you can opt for the third row as well. In both cases, the first two rows are spacious and comfortable, while the third row is tight and works only for kids.
The cargo area is good for about 46 cubic feet behind the second row and 71 cubic feet of the total volume in the two-row model. The three-row model offers around 11 cubic feet of space behind the third-row seats 44 cubic feet behind the second row and 64 cubic feet of the total cargo volume.
2024 Lexus LX 600 Engines
Standard models will certainly continue in the same way, equipped with a 3.4-liter turbo V6, which puts out 409 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, which is plenty enough to ensure strong performance. The engine comes in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which does an excellent job. The average fuel consumption goes around 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, which is typical for the class.
On the other hand, various reports suggest that this model year will bring a hybrid version to the offer. Of course, we count on the same setup found in the new Tundra and Sequoia, with a combined output of 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. This system also comes in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The same system should be offered in the new Land Cruiser 300
Considering that the current model is already fully loaded with features, we believe that the 2024 Lexus LX 600 will come without bigger changes. So, base models should come with goodies like 12.3-inch and 7-inch touch screens, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 10-speaker premium stereo, Bluetooth, four USB ports, satellite radio, wireless device charging, navigation, an 8-inch digital instrument cluster display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, and a moonroof.
Among upgrades, expect to find goodies like two additional USB ports, a 25-speaker Mark Levinson surround-sound stereo, rear wireless device charging, a rear-seat entertainment system with two 11.4-inch displays, ambient interior lighting and a center console cooler.
2024 Lexus LX 600 Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Lexus LX 600 will arrive sometime in the second half of 2023, with a starting price of around 87.000 dollars.
