If you really want to experience the epitome of luxury, it's hard to beat the 2022 Lexus LX600. As a matter of fact, this brand new automobile is being hailed by many as the most luxurious thing on four wheels that's ever been designed. Granted, your personal opinion might differ if you have a favorite vehicle that's made by someone else but the reality of the situation is that this vehicle is worth at least taking a look at. There's every chance that you'll be pleasantly surprised by the many things that Lexus has included on the vehicle. In fact, its design marks a number of firsts.
Straight From the Horse’s Mouth
The automobile manufacturer says that this particular vehicle mark's the epitome of control and comfort. As a matter of fact, they've gone as far as saying that this is a vehicle that is capable of providing you with the maximum level of both comfort and performance for those long road trips while simultaneously allowing you to go off-roading at any moment if that's what you decide to do. All the while, you get the most comfortable ride possible, the most responsive engine and handling, the very best in navigation and entertainment and last but certainly not least, a brand new system that allows four occupants in the vehicle to experience the maximum level of comfort. This is all thanks to seats that move in more than 16 different directions as well as featuring both heat and massage. That's saying quite a lot. If you're lucky enough to find a vehicle that offers all of these things, it's usually only for the first two seats in the front of the vehicle. Typically, everyone else gets left behind when it comes to comfort. That's not the case here. While you're experiencing all this comfort, you can still do practically anything you want and there's enough cargo space in the back to haul plenty of groceries or bags from the store without even breaking a sweat. Sure, there's a price to pay for all of this luxury, but you can’t expect to get all of this for next to nothing. If you're intrigued enough to read on, it's time to get down to business and look at exactly what this vehicle has to offer.
You're likely to notice that this vehicle has rather impressive performance, not to mention handling that’s more akin to a sports car than a big, bulky SUV. Much of that starts with its rather impressive power plant, a 3.5 L V6 engine that's married to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The engine generates 409 horsepower, enough to move this mammoth vehicle from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just under seven seconds. Granted, you're not going to beat any two-door coupe from point A to point B, but you have to consider the fact that you're dealing with an SUV that weighs more than 4,000 pounds. When you consider its performance in its own class, it really is second to none. Just in case you're wondering, that engine and transmission combination is also capable of producing 479 foot-pounds of torque. That means that you've got enough power to haul your travel trailer or your boat, whichever you prefer. You might have to press a little harder on the gas, but you're certainly not going to be hindered in what you can actually do. When you consider the fact that you get to do it all in extreme luxury, it really is hard to find something to complain about. Better still, the car handles as if it were designed to be on a racetrack instead of a road. At the same time, you can easily switch into four-wheel drive mode by simply turning a selector on the dash. The beefy suspension is more than capable of handling virtually anything you want to throw at it and the oversized brakes allow the vehicle to stop at a moment's notice.
Something for Everyone
One of the things that really sets this vehicle apart from the competition is the fact that Lexus has more or less included something for everyone. There are several different variations of this particular vehicle that can be purchased. If off-roading is your thing, then you can purchase a vehicle that is geared more toward that than anything else. By the same token, you might decide to go for the cheaper base model available. On the other hand, maybe you want to go all out and buy the most luxurious model you can possibly get your hands on. Either way, there is a model available to fit almost every taste. By the way, if you're curious about the purchase price, the base model starts at just over $86,000. If you want to enjoy the most luxurious model the automotive manufacturer makes, that price is going to be a bit higher, with that model coming in at just over $126,000. When it's all said and done, the price really isn't that much different from the previous generation of vehicles. That's really saying something, because Lexus has made a lot of improvements to this particular SUV, yet they're not charging a great deal more money for the new version, one that many people would argue is actually much improved. At the end of the day, this is a good option for you if you're looking for a large SUV that's capable of filling many different roles simultaneously, especially if you're interested in something that's capable of offering the highest form of luxury. This definitely isn't what a lot of people would consider a daily driver, but that's where the real beauty of it lies. It's more than capable of becoming exactly that. The only difference is that you don't have to sacrifice comfort or luxury in order to have it.
