Lexus Malaysia recently published this photo on its official Facebook page. The photo shows us the headlight unit of the refreshed Lexus LX 570, teasing the mega-SUV’s imminent arrival here in Malaysia. The LX was earlier reported to arrive on our shores in Q4 2015 and it seems this continues to hold through.

The revised Lexus LX receives updates to its looks, starting with the brand’s trademark spindle grille with chrome surrounds. The conspicuous grille is accompanied by new bumpers as well. Wheel options start from large 20-inch 10-spokes, and larger 21-inchers. As the “teaser” image clearly shows, the headlights feature LEDs as its lighting elements. The diodes are also found in the taillights.

Inside, the LX’s creature comforts now includes a panoramic view monitor and “Climate Concierge” automatic temperature control. A 12.3-inch head unit with Lexus’ Remote-Touch Interface dominates the dashboard, while rear passengers receive 11.5-inch screens, USB ports, as well as AC and audio controls in the armrest.

Under the hood is a 5.7 litre V8 petrol engine that provides the same 383 hp and 546 Nm of torque. The familiar mill does get a new eight-speed automatic gearbox, replacing the old six-speed unit. The LX also features Drive Mode Select, with four modes – Eco, Comfort, Sport and Sport+ – each with its own throttle and Adaptive Variable Suspension setting.

As for safety and driving assistance systems, the updated Lexus Safety System+ suite includes ten airbags, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert, and a tyre pressure monitoring system. Also standard across the LX range is the Intuitive Park Assist and SmartAccess System with card key.

So, if you’ve been longing for a V8-powered luxury barge with the ability to ferry you through some rough terrain, your wait is almost over. Unfortunately, prices of the LX 570 has yet to be revealed, but considering the other large SUV from Infiniti, the QX80, costs RM798k, expect the LX to be around the same price range.
