Second Gen (LX470)

Not surprisingly, a second generation Lexus LX was introduced for the 1998 model year, larger and more refined than the vehicle it replaced. It was once again based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, this time on the 100 series and its name change to LX470 signified a larger and more powerful engine under the hood.

Gone was the old inline six and in its place a new 4.7L 2UZ-FE V8 that delivered both increased horsepower and a velvety smooth character. 

While its Land Cruiser origins were still extremely obvious, the second generation LX did have a bit more “Lexus” in its styling, particularly on the front end which looked like a truck version of the Lexus GS sport sedan.

Interestingly, there was even a version of the LX470 sold in Japan called the Land Cruiser Cygnus, which was a luxury version of the many Land Cruiser models sold in the homeland.

On the EPA test cycle the Land Cruiser gets better fuel mileage than the LX 570 (13 city/17 hwy vs. 12 city/16 hwy).

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Toyota Land Cruiser uses regular unleaded gasoline. The LX 570 requires premium for maximum efficiency, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

What does the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser offer?

MORE: Buying a Used Toyota Land Cruiser Only Makes Sense for a 'Certain Type of Buyer'The Land Cruiser and the LX have basically identical engines, so we won't repeat all the specs on that front here. The Land Cruiser is capable of towing more of a load, however, with a capacity of 8,100 lbs. In addition to having basically the same engines, the Land Cruiser also comes with the same standard equipment as the LX. As a bonus, though, it also includes a “refrigerated” center console storage box, which is optional on the LX.

While the 2022 LX 600 will be able to conquer the trails like a Land Cruiser, it will do so with the distinct style of a Lexus. The automaker is heaping on the technology and interior options for its flagship SUV.

The Lexus LX driver will enjoy three separate screens. The first is the horizontally-mounted 12.3-inch dashboard touchscreen. This screen gives the driver and front passenger access to the infotainment center, navigation, Apple Play, Android Auto and the Lexus personal assistant. Below that screen is a 7-inch touch screen to control vehicle functions such as the temperature controls. Finally, the driver has their own 8-inch digital instrument panel above the steering wheel column.

The LX 600 improves on the LX 570 with a third row of seating that folds flat into the cargo area. Either half of the 50/50 seat row can recline or stow away on its own.

Finally, buyers can also option their SUV with the LX 600’s ultra luxury package. Lexus has created this four-person setup with a pair of rear captain’s chairs in the place of a rear bench. Artisans upholstered the top-trim SUV in diamond-stitched semi-aniline leather. The resplendent cabin even features a power-retractable ottoman and personal tray tables.

Just like the Land Cruiser before it, the Lexus LX 600 is ready to give any adventure a swanky safari vibe–whether on-road or beyond.
