The Lexus LQ will replace the LX in 2022
The Lexus lineup will finally have a new luxury SUV
The Lexus LX is the largest SUV of the Japanese brand. Sold in North America and Asia, the third-generation LX was introduced in 2007. Despite many improvements received in its thirteen-year career, the LX can no longer hide its wrinkles today. That's a good thing, since its replacement will be arriving very soon.
The new model will be called the Lexus LQ and will benefit from the best of the Japanese brand's know-how. Its design will be based on the Lexus LF-1 concept shown here in the photos. A much more dynamic style than the LX is therefore expected with a body inspired by both the LC coupe and the RX SUV.
The interior will also be much more refined than the LX's, which couldn't hide its affiliation with the Toyota Land Cruiser. The dashboard will be fitted with a giant infotainment screen and a digital instrument cluster. The dashboard's shape will be inspired by the LC and LS.
Under the hood, the future LQ will naturally receive a hybrid version like most of the cars in the lineup. A model equipped with a twin-turbo V6 developing about 400 hp will also be offered. A sporty F-version is even considered, with a power output of up to 600 hp. The future Lexus LQ is expected to be introduced in 2022.
