2022 Lexus LX600 Revealed

Recommended Posts

This doesn't compete with anything from Ford or Lincoln. A XL-sized fixed top Bronco in a tux on T3, maybe so.

 

Toyota Sequoia does, which should be coming out real soon. This just might degenerate into polarized discussion like the Tundra, considering the subject matter.

4 Runner is more of Bronco competitor, not Sequoia, which aligns with Expy.

 

Regardless, it's irrelevant to the LX.

The navigator is a competitor to the lx.  Full sized body on frame luxury suvs with 3 rows of seats priced at or over $100k.  It's funny, many ppl criticized ford for not putting the wiper in the spoiler like Toyota and gm, and now lexus abandoned it on their own suvs.

It's interesting how everyone is now jumping on the bandwagon of spelling the brand's name out with wide set letters in lieu of having a logo.  Lincoln was a trendsetter.

Likewise for the wrap around light bar on the liftgate.

Yeah, Lexus is definitely going "me too" with the rear designs of the full width lightbar and now spelling out the name.

I don't get the hype over Lexus LXes. I have been in one and it was like a bigger 4Runner. 

Nothing stood out about it whatsoever.

It's mainly reputation due to land cruiser and Toyota as a whole being labeled "bulletproof".

Ouch.  The back showed promise, but the front is unexplainable.

It is a "look at me" grille, followed by the most forgettable, derivative CUV ever. So, it's "Oh my god" followed by Zzzzzzzz!

 

The interior is good, but not great by luxury car standards.  The Jeep interiors posted earlier are better than this.

After everyone else exited the vehicle, Ted stayed in the back seat, oblivious to the four other dark screens and read Billie Eilish's autobiography on his mom's Kindle.

That overstated grill on current models is what made Lexus be taken off our "short list" when we were looking this summer (when the better half gets a new car, I get her to look at everything offered on the market, so she doesn't have regrets....lol).  We both found the front end hideous on the '21 models - someone obviously decided to WhataSize it.....

The Lexus grilles remind me of the red enemies in the Atari Tempest video game.

1970's Cylon - By Your Command - YouTube

Most people don't realize that in that show, Baltar's second in command, Lucifer was voiced by the same Actor who played DR. Smith in Lost in space. I'd always imagine that Lucifer off screen was yelling at the Cylons, "you bumbling bolt!" and stuff like that all day.

That just may be the ugliest grille I have ever seen. Just awful.

Reread what I said, I mentioned T3, not T6. A Bronco in a tux on T3 architecture (F-Series, Expy/Navi) would be a Lincoln with an SRA.

 

These have never competed directly with anything Ford sells and this was noted when the nameplate was launched in 1996 and when first redesigned in 1998, where a Ford executive expressly stated that the Land Cruiser and LX are not on their radar.

 

Toyota's target has always been Japanese competition and/or Range Rover with this vehicle. Not Lincoln.

 

The day Toyota decides to make a larger Sequoia-sized offering at Lexus, they are not competing with Lincoln in this category.

The Infiniti QX80 tries to compete with the Escalade and Navigator. This plainly doesn't, as maybe a Sequoia sized Lexus vehicle would. In its own category essentially.

 

This generation of LX looks to be targeting cost-cutting anyway, based on what I have seen. It's not the leap I would've liked to see after 14 years, like I got with the 2018 Navigator.

Hardly true at all, as a number of examples predate the U554, which has been out since 2017.

 

I try to be objective as a Ford guy and cannot consider that to be fairly accurate, when Lincoln easily borrowed that from R A N G E    R O V E R (sub-brand) and P O R S C H E.

 

As the case with the 2011 Explorer, it's obvious where the spelled out letters came from.range_rover_9.thumb.jpg.1c8e9adcb329ad37ed0393b48dcf4667.jpgff72af73-3b8c-4677-a7b6-1e5ce2d5f172.png.638c06945558b20c27cd2190a94f7c67.png
