Lexus introduced the LX 600, a new version of the LX, a few months ago. According to available information, the new 2023 Lexus LX600 Hybrid will debut this year and will be based on the Toyota Land Cruiser model, which may be phased out of the US market. Lexus, on the other hand, is rekindling the spark with the upcoming flagship LX 600 model.
The new LX600, like its twin LX 570, will be appealing, with distinct visual and interior style but the same powertrain under the hood. However, this V6 engine will come with a hybrid system. Naturally, it will provide more power, and more importantly, higher fuel economy ratings.
Lexus LX 600 Hybrid Exterior Design
The 2023 Lexus LX 600 Hybrid will have the same blocky form as the other LX models, but with more modern styling. This SUV comes with an aggressive front fascia, wearing a recognizable spindle grille with a larger “L” emblem in the center.
The F Sport variant is one of the best options, and it will significantly refresh the appearance of this SUV. This model has larger 22-inch wheels and a blacked-out grille. It also sports a new Torsen limited-slip differential and damper adjustment. Lexus claims that an improved Multi-Terrain Select system with several drive modes and off-road functions will be available as well.
Interior Provides Numerous Layouts
The all-new Lexus LX 600 Hybrid will undoubtedly have a more modern interior than the rest of the LX lineup. The automaker claims that this SUV will be available in a variety of seating configurations. The base trim will have a two-row configuration with five seats, while the upper trim levels will have a three-row configuration with room for seven seats.
The company, on the other hand, provides a new Ultra Luxury version with a four-seat layout. In terms of technology, the new LX 600 Hybrid will carry on the heritage with a dual-screen infotainment system based on the most recent Lexus Interface software. This SUV will also provide a 12.3-inch touchscreen and a smaller 7-inch touchscreen.
Improved Fuel Efficiency
The 2023 Lexus LX 600 Hybrid will have only one engine option under the hood. According to the source, it will be powered by a proven twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V6 engine with 410 horsepower and 480 lb-ft-feet of torque. When compared to the existing naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V8, the new and smaller engine outperforms this aging unit.
We also anticipate that this engine will be more fuel-efficient, thanks to a start/stop setup that can be turned off with a single click. In addition, the Lexus will include a new ten-speed automatic transmission as standard. The hybrid system will add more horses and improved MPGs, although we don’t have exact engine specs yet.
2023 Lexus LX600 Hybrid Release Date, Price
The price of the new LX 600 SUV will start at around $90,000, or slightly below that. As for the 2023 Lexus LX 600 Hybrid, this version will cost closer to $100k. The sales will reportedly begin in the third quarter of 2022.
