Lexus Introduces All-New 2022 LX 600 SUV

Lexus LX 600, Toronto, ON

The all-new 2022 Lexus LX 600 has arrived, and it offers the peak of luxury combined with the off-road prowess you want available at a moment’s notice. This large flagship SUV is expected to appear on dealership lots in the first quarter of 2022. Until then, get to know more about this redesigned model.


With its new GA-F platform, reduced overall weight, and updated engine, the LX is more capable than ever. Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 rated at 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to Electric Power Steering, the new Lexus LX offers worry-free off-road performance. Meanwhile, the Active Height Control suspension provides a smooth ride on the road by adjusting the height of the SUV through shock absorbers.

Exceptionally Refined

Outside of performance, the 2022 Lexus LX is also exceptionally refined — inside and out. The spindle grille has been revised to make a statement as you arrive. In the back, the word “LEXUS” is spelled out between the taillights, replacing the standard “L” logo and giving the SUV a more modern look. For a sportier appearance, you can choose the first-ever LX F SPORT model that includes 22-inch forged aluminum wheels, an F mesh design spindle grille, interior design elements, and more thrilling performance features.


Inside, the updates come in the form of comfort. Across the lineup, you can choose a five-seat three-row configuration or a seven-seat three-row setup for the interior. New this year is the third row’s ability to fold flat into the floor to open up more cargo room. An additional update is with the VIP Executive model that offers a four-seat configuration with footrests for the two rear seats. 

These are just some of the highlights of the all-new 2022 Lexus LX. To learn more, contact our team of associates at Lexus Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.

Top Autumn Car Care Tips | Toronto, ON

Fall | Toronto, ON

As the season changes from summer to autumn, it’s important to keep track of your vehicle’s many components to ensure they last a long time. Take a moment to inspect your car for the following issues and if you notice anything out of the ordinary, don’t hesitate to bring it to Lexus Downtown.


Before getting into your Lexus, do a walk-around to check its exterior parts. See if all of the lights are working, including the headlights, high beams, and brake lights. Check the windshield wipers for any cracks, tears, or rust. Finally, inspect the tires for any issues and see if the tread is at a reasonable level. If it’s not, your car could have a hard time gripping the roads when they get slick.


You don’t want to get inside of a cold car just for the air vents to blow cool air at you. Even though we haven’t encountered winter weather just yet, it’s still good practice to check to ensure that the heat does, in fact, work. If not, you’ll need to bring your vehicle to our service department for repair.

Under the hood

Open the hood of your vehicle and do a quick visual scan to check for anything unusual like hoses or belts out of place. If you think something looks odd, contact our service team for advice. You’ll also want to check the levels of all fluids, including oil, power steering, transmission, brake, and wiper fluid.

For all of your autumn car care needs, contact our team at Lexus Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.

Lexus LF-Z Electrified Concept Hints at Future Electric Car Plans

Lexus LF-Z Concept Toronto, ON

Lexus is moving towards an electric future. The automaker recently unveiled its all-new Lexus LF-Z Electrified concept car, a battery-operated electric vehicle that combines performance, style, and innovative technologies to move the industry forward.

LF-Z Electrified

The LF-Z Electrified concept balances performance and efficiency with an optimally placed battery and electric motors, enabling a fun-to-drive experience. It also comes with a new four-wheel driving force control technology called “DIRECT4.” This technology provides a superior, flexible driving performance.


On the outside, this Lexus concept looks to the future. Its sculpted lines and sleep roofline hint at its power. Inside, the “Tazuna” cockpit is open and minimalist, embodying the Lexus human-centred approach to design.

The LF-Z Electrified has a seamless design and a panoramic roof that uses long plates of glass to bring a feeling of openness to the cabin. All of the gauges, touch display, and other informational functions — including the augmented reality head-up display — are grouped in a single location, making it easy to get all vital information you need in a single glance.

Following the lead of the LF-Z Electrified, Lexus plans to produce 20 new or improved models by 2025, including more than 10 electrified options. This includes plug-in hybrid (PHEVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), and battery electric vehicles (BEVs).
