There will be an Ultra Luxury variant with a VIP rear-seat layout for the 300-series Land Cruiser, which sells in the United States in the new year. The LX600 is the latest iteration of Lexus' LX luxury crossover.

Land Cruiser 300-series version with a more upscale interior and 409-horsepower twin-turbo 3.4-litre V-6.

From next year, the 2022 LX600 will be available for purchase in the United States.

Even though Land Cruiser is no longer available in the United States, Lexus revises the legend with the 2022 LX600 crossover. While the outward style has changed and inside spiffed up, the hardware below remains the same in the new LX. It's hard to fault Toyota for making the Lexus the only 300-series vehicle sold in the United States, given how closely the prior Land Cruiser and LX models were priced.

Its blocky style is carried over to the 2017 LX, but we like how the spindle grille blends in better with the rest of the front end while still looking imposing. In addition, the "L" emblem on the back has been replaced with "LEXUS" lettering. Also available is an F Sport version with a darkened grille and larger 22-inch wheels.

The Torsen limited-slip differential in the rear and revised damper settings are also included.

Numerous seating options start with the standard trim, which has a two-row configuration that seats five people. Compared to the previous model's seats that folded up to the sides of the cargo compartment, the third row now folds completely flat into the floor in the Premium, Luxury, and F Sport trim levels.

As a bonus, there's a brand-new Ultra Luxury trim level with a unique four-seat layout that includes two sumptuous rear chairs with power recliners and a footrest.

According to Lexus, there are three levels of adjustable height suspension, and the approach and departure angles are the same as previously. In addition, you may choose from a variety of drive modes with the Multi-Terrain Select system, as well as numerous off-road camera perspectives, such as one that lets you see what's under the back of the vehicle.

Lexus Interface software powers a dual-screen infotainment system with a 12.3-inch top screen and the 7.0-inch bottom panel for HVAC and Multi-Terrain Select modes. The 8.0-inch digital gauge cluster is also available. Adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist are among the driver assistance features standard.

The LX600 will come in the US in the first quarter of 2022, and we expect it to start around $90,000, with the Ultra Luxury version topping $100,000.
