2022 Lexus LX Heading to the Middle East for Official Premiere on October 14

Lexus has officially kicked off the teaser campaign for the new generation LX, a little bit late if you ask us, because the 2022 model will debut next week.

Toyota’s luxury car brand has announced that they will drop the cover off the 2022 LX in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia on October 14, at 1:30 a.m. JST (12:30 p.m. EST / 6:30 p.m. CET). An online reveal is scheduled to take place at the same time.

To ease the wait, Lexus has released a short teaser video and a picture partially revealing the back end of the vehicle. The latter shows a more modern design, with bigger taillights joined together by a light strip, similar to the latest NX. The automaker has dropped the corporate logo from the tailgate, replacing it with the ‘LEXUS’ lettering.

The chrome trim above the license plate holder, in turn wider, is no longer present. We can see that the bumper looks softer and sports a black finish on the pictured 4x4, incorporating two horizontal reflectors on the sides. Finally, the LX 600 badge bedecks the rear end.

If the latest reports are correct, then this specification is understood to pack the new Toyota Land Cruiser’s twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, where it produces over 400 horsepower. The same internal combustion engine, albeit with electric assistance, is rumored to power the LX 750h variant of the new generation.

Expect a small price bump over its predecessor when it arrives in the United States, likely next year. The LX 570 with two rows of seats currently has an MSRP of $86,930. The three-row variant can be ordered from $91,930, and the lineup is topped by the Inspiration Series, with its black treatment and extra gear, offered from $99,310, before handling and dealer fees, and options.
