Next-Gen 2021 Lexus LX Gets New Powertrain and Complete Redesign

The upcoming 2021 Lexus LX will be the next-gen model. This SUV is in the works and you can expect a lot of improvements. New LX comes with plenty of high-quality materials, premium appearance, and great performances. The reason for such a radical move is the drop in sales. New-gen LX is the best possible answer.

The ultimate goal is to rival German SUVs from Audi, BMW, and Mercedes. Thanks to that, expect more luxury and various refreshments in every possible aspect. New LX will go on sale in the second half of 2020 and we are hoping for sales to increase.

New Powertrain Option

The all-new 2021 Lexus LX will arrive with the new twin-turbo engine. It is another significant upgrade for this SUV. A new generation will ride on a larger 5.7-liter powertrain that is capable of producing 383 horsepower. This naturally-aspirated V8 engine also delivers 402 lb-ft of torque. Logically, the 5.7-liter engine powers the LX570 model.

As for the LX600 variant, a new and smaller twin-turbo V6 is the most likely outcome. After all, the 6.0-liter drivetrain is too much for this SUV. As for the twin-turbo engine, it will produce 416 hp and 442 lb-ft of twisting power. Lexus will also look to improve fuel efficiency on its next-gen vehicles.

Next-generation Lexus LX will look to rival Infiniti QX80 and Land Rover Discovery. Moreover, all of the German SUVs are most likely competitors as well.

Sales Are Dropping

Things aren’t going so well for Lexus in the last couple of years. Toyota’s luxury brand will try to deliver brand-new models in the most popular segments as soon as possible. New-gen 2021 Lexus LX is just a beginning. It is not a brand-new vehicle but it will get a needed redesign. When compared to the BMW’s or Mercedes’ large SUVs, LX and GX versions are outdated and aging. The sales dropped from 18 to 13 percent and now the time has come for some radical moves. Expect various changes and upgrades in the near future.
