“The latest version of the legendary “off-road luxury aircraft” Lexus LX600 has quickly appeared in Vietnam under private import, alongside the officially imported vehicles. It meets the needs of high-class customers quickly and conveniently, while also diversifying the luxury car market.
Lexus LX has always been at the top of the luxury SUV world. It has been considered the default mode of transportation for important figures such as directors and chairmen. Limited quantity, high-quality equipment, luxurious comfort, combined with the weight of the Lexus brand and the reliability of Toyota – these are the values that have won the hearts of customers for the Lexus LX. And the Lexus LX600 2023 inherits and enhances these values, maintaining its incomparable position.
The new Lexus LX600 is positioned as the premium sibling of the Land Cruiser, continuing to inherit the essence of the latest generation of Toyota’s full-size SUV. In terms of platform, the Lexus LX600 2023 is built on the all-new lightweight and rigid GA-F structure.
In terms of overall dimensions, the LX600 has a more imposing presence than its LX570 sibling. Specifically, its dimensions are 5,100 x 1,990 x 1,865 mm (LxWxH), with a wheelbase of 2,850 mm, a standard ground clearance of 205 mm, and the ability to raise and lower the suspension.
The engine position has been lowered to change the center of gravity of the vehicle, providing improved stability during operation. The vehicle features an advanced air suspension system with 4 adjustable levels based on specific driving conditions, allowing the vehicle to wade through water up to 800mm without requiring a dedicated snorkel.
In terms of design, the 2023 Lexus LX600 has been completely transformed with a modern look. The signature spindle grille is still present in the center of the front end but has been resized to be larger, removing the chrome frame and replacing it with a modern and impressive frameless design.
The LED headlight system features intelligent BladeScan technology, divided into multiple lighting projectors, giving the “eyes” of the Lexus LX600 a lively appearance. The demi LED strip lights are placed just below.
The body of the Lexus LX600 2023 showcases its robustness with its sharp lines and imposing presence along the sides. The wheel arches are designed to protrude outward, further emphasizing the SUV’s stability. The vehicle’s stance is enhanced by the modern and elegant design of the 22-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, exuding luxury.
The rear of the vehicle is also harmoniously designed, with minimalist arrangement of details. The LED brake lights on both sides are connected through a long LED strip running horizontally across the tailgate, combined with the hidden design of the exhaust pipes, giving the LX600 a modern look.
Early in Vietnam, the Lexus LX600 2023 is available in a VIP version, with a configuration for 4 seats and a focus on providing convenience and comfort for two rear passengers.
The armrest between the two rear seats is equipped with a customizable display for air conditioning, entertainment, and adjustable seat sliding and reclining, with cooling, heating, and ventilation features.
The front armrest is elegantly designed with beautiful diamond stitching. The space underneath is cooled and functions as a mini refrigerator that can be opened from both sides and from the rear, ensuring convenience. The rear armrest also has a spacious beverage storage space, not inferior to the front.
Behind the front seats, there are two large entertainment screens integrated into the rear headrests. In particular, the VIP seat on the passenger side is equipped with a footrest.
Above the dashboard, the LX600 is equipped with a total of 3 large screens, including a digital instrument cluster, a central entertainment screen above the dashboard, and an information display screen for vehicle operation and air conditioning settings just below. Not to mention the modern heads-up display.
Furthermore, the Lexus LX600 2023 is fully equipped with a fingerprint sensor that can recognize up to 10 users with preset settings for mirror-seat-steering wheel positions, air conditioning temperature, and preferred entertainment channels.
The all-new Lexus LX600 continues to maintain its position as the flagship luxury SUV with its powerful performance. It is equipped with a new engine, a twin-turbocharged V6 3.5L configuration that can deliver a maximum output of 509 HP and a maximum torque of 650Nm, surpassing the previous naturally aspirated V8 engine.
With the second generation of the Lexus Safety System, the Lexus LX600 offers advanced safety features such as Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Pre-Collision System (PCS), Adaptive High-beam System (AHS), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Parking Support Brake (PKSB), and Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) that supports door-opening collision warning.
In addition, the Lexus LX600 2023 is equipped with an MTS automatic driving support system with 6 separate driving modes, reaffirming its superior off-road capabilities.
In conclusion, the Lexus LX600 2023 is a comprehensive and worthy upgrade, featuring a modern and agile design, luxury amenities, enhanced driving performance, and advanced driving assistance technology.
In the context of the global automotive industry facing the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, privately imported LX600 vehicles can be a reasonable choice for high-end customers in Vietnam.
