Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Like its Land Cruiser sibling, the luxurious LX excels off-road, with substantial wheel travel and plenty of ground clearance. Still, the LX brand of off-roading has more in common with crossover SUVs than with hard-duty workhorses, such as Jeeps.

A group of console-mounted switches is used only occasionally, but they give the LX impressive capabilities on roads of all kinds. Weighing three tons, the LX cannot slip between rough-country obstacles as readily as a narrower SUV, such as Lexus’ own GX.

Ride comfort is another area where the LX stands tall. Suffering only slight loss in off-road ability, compared to the Land Cruiser, the Lexus version beats Toyota’s on paved surfaces. Its weight can be a benefit in coping with potholes, allowing the suspension to absorb surface flaws.

Even though a relatively low front bumper limits approach angles, the LX maintains traction admirably on various terrains. The four-wheel-drive system splits power 40/60 (front/rear), via a locking differential. Crawl-control lets the LX ease through mushy pathways. Traction control hinders opposing wheels to shrink the turning radius, improving maneuverability on narrow trails. Body lean, as expected, is inevitable when cornering.

As for acceleration, the big V8 provides exceptional thrust for such a heavyweight. An LX can pass comfortably on the highway, without using all the available power.

The Lexus LX ranks among the least fuel-efficient vehicles on the market, EPA-rated at a gas-guzzling 13/18 mpg City/Highway, or 15 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Lexus clearly sought to make its version of the traditional SUV look different from Toyota’s Land Cruiser, despite the nearly-identical underpinnings. The foremost difference is up front, at the lengthened nose. As on other current Lexus models, the oversized, insolent hourglass-shaped spindle grille is a feature than cannot be overlooked.

Few observers are likely to call the front end beautiful. Some find it annoying, though it undeniably gives the LX a distinguishing character. Like it or hate it, the tall grille dominates the front end and establishes a pattern for overall visual cues.

Viewed from the side or rear, the LX has a pleasant, imposing shape with squarish corners and large integrated taillights. The split tailgate has an upper hatch, above a fold-down section that can be used as a temporary bench seat at outdoor events.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Lavishly appointed, the stunning cabin retains the look and near-silence of a library. Luscious leather and open-pore wood, in profuse quantity, enhance the subdued and subtle aura of elegance. Lovely fit-and-finish helps separate the plush LX from the more prosaic Land Cruiser.

Climbing into the LX isn’t so easy. Because this SUV is intended to tackle tall obstacles, quite an upward step is needed.

Five adults get plenty of space. The driver faces a high, commanding view of the road. Generously-proportioned seats feel supportive and soft.

Seats are less sculpted in the second row, Fitted with 40/20/40-split seatbacks, they slide 3.5 inches fore/aft, to apportion space between passengers and cargo.

While the front two rows promise nearly ideal comfort, the unappealing third-row seat is short on space. Far-back riders must be small or young. Even then, it’s tiny and cramped.

A foldaway mechanism raises and rotates the third-row seats toward the bodysides, opening up a cargo space that’s quite narrow. Seats cannot be removed, and the cargo floor is rather high.

Cargo volume totals only 9.1 cubic feet behind the rear seat, growing to 24.8 cubic feet if those seatbacks are folded down. A split tailgate includes a powered upper door.

The dashboard is loaded with buttons and knobs. Many of them control the off-roading technology. Because they’re so numerous, the control layout conveys a rather haphazard look.


New Car Test Drive

Big V8 power is terrific for towing and promises reserve vigor for serious off-roading, but expansive dimensions inevitably impede maneuverability. While the cabin is pleasantly plush and amply equipped, the Lexus LX doesn’t match the opulence or true luxury of a Range Rover.
