Engine and drivetrain

As with the previous generation LX, the 2022 variant features a choice of petrol and diesel engines, both of which are now twin-turbo V6 units rather than the outgoing V8 powerplants.

Under the bonnet of the LX 500d is the 3.3-litre, twin-turbo V6 diesel from the LandCruiser 300 Series, producing an identical 227kW and 700Nm to its Toyota cousin.

For the LX 600, it scores a 3.5-litre, twin-turbo V6 petrol, developing more power than the diesel at 305kW, but with a dip in torque to 650Nm.

Both engines send power to the road via a full-time four-wheel drive system and a 10-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox, equipped with a low-range transfer case.

All grades score a trailer wiring harness and towing hitch, allowing the LX to tow up to 3500 kilograms braked.
