The UAE News report: As part of its relentless pursuit to deliver Amazing Experiences from Lexus and meet the diverse and growing aspirations of discerning customers in the UAE, Al-Futtaim Lexus has announced the launch of the all-new Lexus LX.
The new generation of the Lexus LX combines modern design, superb performance, and a new powertrain with the world and Lexus-first technologies to deliver an unsurpassed luxury SUV experience, whether cutting through busy city streets or tackling the harshest off-road routes.
Since its establishment in 1989, Lexus has been committed to the spirit of innovation. The brand has always risen to the occasion with new technologies that provide limitless value to new and existing customers.
The Lexus LX hit the streets less than a decade later in 1996 and has since become Lexus’ flagship SUV due to its high build-quality, ride comfort, and driving performance fit for roads the world over, no matter the condition. This has been achieved by refining the LX’s founding concepts – reliability, durability, and off-road driving performance. The LX has sold a cumulative total of more than 500,000 units in over 50 countries and regions.
Lexus’ commitment to maintaining the LX’s authentic SUV performance is reflected in the retention of a body-on-frame construction, with the added benefit of a robust yet lightweight new Global Architecture GA-F platform. This, combined with a highly durable lightweight body, has helped reduce the all-new LX’s weight by around 200 kg to create greater ride comfort, handling stability, and fuel efficiency without compromising on strength or safety.
Whatever the driving conditions, the 2022 LX delivers a constant, rewarding sense of connection, control, and vehicle response with the Lexus Driving Signature. An Electric Power Steering system has been adopted for the first time, together with Electronically Controlled Braking to guarantee optimum on and off-road performance. The suspension systems have also been redesigned, and feature both Active Height Control and Adaptive Variable Suspension for agility, stability, and comfort in all driving scenarios.
The all-new LX promises “ease and quality on any road in the world” and is ready to meet the diverse needs of Al-Futtaim Lexus customers in the UAE. Lexus has succeeded in creating a vehicle that, along with its exceptional off-road performance, can be driven without hesitation on town roads or highways come rain or shine. The LX is redefining what it means to truly travel in comfort and style.
This has been achieved by refining the LX’s traditional off-road performance through rigorous field testing, and through the outstanding efforts of the Lexus development team and drive-master to refine on-road performance with a fully-optimized Lexus Driving Signature that delivers the kind of linear response our drivers want and need.
Andy Barratt, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Lexus, said: “As ever, we are focused on bringing the best of Lexus to our loyal customers, so we are excited to introduce the all-new Lexus LX which embodies Lexus’ commitment to meeting the diversified needs and lifestyles of our customers in the UAE. The new model is a true flagship SUV that combines reliability, durability, and rough-road driving performance with Lexus refinement and craftsmanship. The Lexus LX also comes with an expanded lineup with various grades, including a new ‘VIP’ grade with four independent seats that demonstrates Lexus’ intention to create a more personal luxury experience. We were encouraged by the interest when the all-new Lexus LX was revealed, and we are confident that our customers will take the all-new Lexus LX to their hearts We thank them for being a source of continuous inspiration on our journey to bring them the most amazing experiences from Lexus.”
The all-new LX comes with a newly developed V6 twin-turbo engine. The V6 twin-turbo 3.5-liter engine achieves class-leading performance that surpasses that of a conventional V8, producing 409 hp and up to 650 nm. This powertrain is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. – firstname.lastname@example.org
