UPDATE, 14/2/23: Following CarExpert’s discovery of spec changes to the 2024 Lexus LX, the brand has confirmed the equipment adjustment – and announced a $5500 price rise across all grades.

    Our original story below has been amended to reflect these price changes.


    11/2/24: The 2024 Lexus LX has undergone a minor spec change, with the large SUV’s mid-range Sports Luxury variant now available with seven seats – for a price.

    Launched in 2022, the current generation Lexus LX is largely unchanged since it first arrived in Australian showrooms, which followed the launch of its Toyota LandCruiser twin.

    Priced from $157,061 before on-road costs in turbo-diesel LX 500d guise and $160,561 before on-road costs as the turbo-petrol LX 600, the flagship Lexus SUV is now $5500 dearer across the range for 2024, without any standard equipment upgrades.

    In total there are seven variants across the LX’s petrol and diesel engine range, with the base trim, Sports Luxury and F Sport shared across both engines, while the flagship Ultra Luxury is exclusively available with petrol power.

    The latest change for 2024 includes a new Enhancement Pack for the Sports Luxury, providing an additional two seats (located in the third row) as well as air vents, USB-C ports and side curtain airbags to suit – for a premium of $2600 for the diesel and $3800 for the petrol.

    The 2024 Lexus LX is available to order now.

    Engines

    The Lexus LX is available with a choice of two engines: a twin-turbo 3.3-litre V6 diesel (shared with the Toyota LandCruiser) for the LX 500d, and a twin-turbo 3.4-litre V6 petrol in the LX 600.

    The turbo-diesel produces up to 227kW of power and 700Nm of torque, while the petrol engine boasts outputs of 305kW and 650Nm.

    Both engines are mated to a full-time all-wheel drive system and 10-speed automatic transmission, including a low-range transfer case.

    Efficiency

    Turbo-diesel LX 500d variants consume 8.9 litres per 100km on a combined cycle, while the petrol LX 600 drinks 12.1 litres per 100km on the same cycle.

    Dimensions

    Regardless of engine, all Lexus LXs measure 5100mm long, 1990mm wide, and 1895mm tall, riding on a 2850mm wheelbase.

    Boot space varies from 174 litres in seven-seat variants with the third-row up, to 1109 litres for five-seat LXs – rising to a maximum of 1871 litres and 1960 litres, respectively.

    Towing capacity across all variants is 750kg unbraked and 3500kg braked, identical to the LandCruiser 300 Series.

    Servicing and Warranty

    All Lexus vehicles sold in Australia are covered by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

    The Lexus LX is meant to be serviced at six-month or 10,000-kilometre intervals, whichever comes first.

    Lexus offers capped-price servicing on the LX, covering the first six services within three years or 60,000km. Each service costs $495.
