It would be recalled that Lexus redesigned the LX 600 from the ground up in 2022, the 2023 model builds upon the success with customer-driven updates on the flagship. The model is carrying over the 3.4-liter V6 twin-turbo gasoline engine which produces high out as well as high torque. This article will cover the full specifications and price of the 2023 Lexus LX 600 in Nigeria.
The flagship SUV is built on the GA-F platform introduced in 2022, which increased body rigidity to achieve a smooth composure and superior comfort level. For the 2023 mode year, the LX provides predictable, balanced comportment during turning, acceleration, and deceleration maneuvers, plus improved stability when driving off-road.
For a high level of off-road driving performance and on-road handling stability, the front high-mounted double wishbone suspension, suspension geometry, and optimized coil springs offer both excellent vehicle stability and ride comfort.
Engine, performance, and transmission
Standard across all grades is the 3.4-liter V6 twin-turbo gasoline engine which produces a power output of 409 hp and maximum torque of 479 lb-ft at 3,600 rpm. the engine is mated to a Direct Shift-10 automatic transmission for a smooth start that only a torque converter can provide, as well as manual transmission like direct acceleration by activating lockup in almost its entire range of operation.
A wide range of gear ratios is employed for strong starting comfort as well as high-speed driving. The low first gear increases the driving force when starting at low speeds, providing a smooth start and powerful low-speed off-road driving performance.
To help reduce the risk of oil pan damage due to unplanned hits to the underfloor that might occur during off-roads, Lexus installed an oil pan guard to the lower body of the automatic transmission.
The Lexus Driving Signature
The high-output, high-torque twin-turbocharged engine, Electronically Controlled Brake (ECB), and Electric Power Steering (EPS) further deepen the Lexus Driving Signature by delivering a driving performance that seamlessly connects deceleration, steering, and acceleration in all situations, while the use of the Active Height Control (AHC) system and Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) help provide improved grip, traction, and control as well as a sense of strength and security.
Electronic Power Steering (EPS) and Electronically Controlled Brake (ECB)
The 2023 LX 600 carries Electronic Power Steering which uses the motor and reduction gear instead o conventional hydraulics. This gives way to subtle tuning and provides a light steering sensation at low speeds. The light steering sensation contributes to reducing the driver’s burden at low speeds.
A sensor is employed by the Electronic Controlled Brake system to detect the degree of brake pedal depression and creates braking force with the hydraulic brakes for a more linear braking characteristic.
Wheel, tire, and differentials
Standard across all lineups is the 22-inch forged aluminum wheels which are the largest in the Lexus lineup for improved on-road and off-road performance.
Torsen LSD is exclusive to the F SPORT grade, the system is employed to help ensure the traction performance of the rear tires. The system optimally distributes the driving force according to the load on the rear left and right wheels when accelerating during a turn, it also responds well to changes in road conditions to bring about improved stability.
For the 2023 model year, the LX 600 is debuting with a wheelbase measurement that has been carried over from the first generation in 1995 to provide increased performance on rough terrain and a spacious interior. The dimensions remain the same as their predecessors.
Standard across all grades is the 12.3-inch upper screen and 7-inch lower screen designed to inform. The bigger 12.3-inch which is strategically mounted on the dashboard shows navigation, audio controls, and the Multi-Terrain Monitor during off-road driving.
The 7-inch display shows the climate control screens and serves as a driving support screen for Multi-Terrain Select.
Six drives for all driving conditions
2023 LX 600 comes standard with Multi-terrain Select, which allows the driver to select from six modes which include Auto, Dirt, Sand, Mud, Deep Snow, and Rock.
In addition, the operating range of Multi-Terrain Select is from low range (L4) to high range (H4). The Auto mode uses information from various sensors to estimate the road conditions while driving and to optimize brake hydraulic pressure, driving force, and suspension control. This feature allows the driver to maintain ideal driving performance in various driving conditions, without having to switch modes.
The crawl control is engaged when the vehicle is in low ranges, it allows the vehicle to move forward or in reverse at one of five driver-selected low-speed settings which include LO, MIDL, MID, MIDH, and HIGH.
DOWNHILL ASSIST CONTROL
This system comes into play when descending a steep slope, the system is designed to automatically control the hydraulic pressure of the brakes on all four wheels to support a descent without locking the wheels. When this system is active, the vehicle speed will be maintained throughout the operation of the switch, the driver can concentrate on the steering operations without worrying about the brakes and acceleration.
The Multi-Terrain Monitor (MTM)
For the 2023 model year, the LX 600 comes standard with Multi-Terrain Monitor (MTM) which incorporates four cameras to help the driver see around the vehicle. The images captured by the cameras can be interchanged and shown on the entire 12.3-inch display, this allows the driver to check the road conditions, which are often in the driver’s blind spots.
The 2022 Lexus LX600 Ultra Edition and F SPORT grade
The four-seat Ultra luxury grade is still available for the 2023 model year. The luxury grade received special attention to the rear passenger space and experience. For increased comfort of the rear occupants, the front seat can move forward, and the seat reclining angle can be controlled up to 48 degrees. The rear seat display is also standard on the grade.
The F SPORT handling
Exclusive to the F SPORT Handling grade are the 22-inch forged aluminum wheels and F mesh design spindle grille with jet-black chrome grille frame. The interior features a steering wheel and shifter wrapped with textured genuine leather for great style and grip, while the exclusive F SPORT emblem is applied throughout the interior. Exclusive to the F SPORT handling grade is the Ultra White (exterior) with Circuit Red (interior).
Entertainment and infotainment system
For the 2023 model year, the Lexus Interface’s 12.3-inch upper touchscreen with added LX-exclusive 7-inch lower screen which provides intuitive technology at the occupants’ fingerprints is standard across all grades. The screen’s Human Machine Interface (HMI) enhances user interaction through sight, touch, and voice while balancing accessibility needs.
With the ubiquitous use of smartphones, an intuitive and simple guest experience is possible with Lexus Interface. With the Lexus Interface User Profile feature, the driver’s personalized settings and experience can be retained in the cloud and remain accessible on the go in other Lexus Interface-equipped vehicles. Once a profile is created in the Lexus App, guests can use a Bluetooth® handheld device, smart key, or manual login to access it.
The Lexus Interface native navigation system was designed with ease of use and functional beauty in mind. Featuring 100% cloud capability and integrated Google Points of Interest data, the system allows faster and more accurate directions and mapping. Over-the-air (OTA) updates offer real-time updates for mapping and enriched media experiences. Native navigation is also available to occupants with or without a network connection. Offline mode detects when the vehicle is near or entering an area with low connectivity and downloads applicable maps and services in advance.
LEXUS SAFETY SYSTEM+ 2.5
The LX comes standard with Lexus Safety System+ 2.5, which brings a suite of key active safety features to the vehicle. For starters, the Pre-Collision System (PCS), which includes Frontal Collision Warning (FCW), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Pedestrian Detection, and Bicyclist Detection, features an enhancement to the lens camera and millimeter-wave radar elements to expand the response range. At intersections, the system has the capability under certain conditions to recognize an oncoming vehicle when performing a lefthand turn, or a pedestrian when performing left and right-hand turns, and is designed to activate typical PCS functions if needed. Additional PCS functions include Emergency Steering Assist (ESA), which is designed to assist steering within the vehicle’s lane as cued by the driver.
All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) can be activated above 30 mph and is designed to perform vehicle-to-vehicle distance controls down to 0 mph and can resume from a stop. DRCC also includes a feature that allows for the smooth overtaking of slower vehicles. If traveling behind a vehicle going slower than the preset speed, once the driver engages the turn signal, the system will provide an initial increase in acceleration in preparation for changing lanes; and, after the driver changes lanes, the vehicle will continue acceleration until it reaches the original preset driving speed.
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/ SA) is designed to help notify the driver if it senses an inadvertent lane departure at speeds above 32 miles per hour via steering wheel vibrations or audible alert. It can also take slight corrective measures to help keep the driver within the visibly marked lane. When DRCC is set and engaged, Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) is designed to provide a slight steering force to help steer to the center of the lane to assist the driver with staying in the lane using visible lane markers or a preceding vehicle. LTA alerts the driver with a visual warning and either an audible alert or steering wheel vibration.
Additional Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 features include Intelligent High Beams, which detect preceding or oncoming vehicles and automatically switch between high beam and low beam headlights. Road Sign Assist (RSA) is designed to acquire certain road sign information using a camera and navigation maps when data is available and display them on the multi-information display (MID).
