In terms of off-road accessories, the LX will feature an enhanced terrain selection with six modes: dirt, sand, mud, deep snow, rock and auto, to improve its ability to traverse any surface, while its crawl control and downhill assist control functions allow the SUV to employ maximum torque to overcome obstacles or automatically descend steep inclines with limited driver inputs. A new multiterrain monitor displays four cameras on the cabin’s 12.3-inch touch screen to enable the driver to see completely around the vehicle without having to exit. The display includes what Lexus calls back underfloor view, which automatically moves images taken from the front of the vehicle to the rear as the vehicle progresses, showing them to the driver as though the vehicle were transparent, which allows the driver to check underfloor conditions and wheel position.
The exterior design features an enhanced spindle grille made up of seven sets of floating bars, redesigned lighting front and rear and new 22-inch forged aluminum wheels.
The SUV will come standard with Lexus Safety System+ 2.5, a suite of driver-assist and safety systems that includes adaptive cruise control, lane-departure alert with steering assist, automatic emergency braking, road sign assist, automated headlights, blind spot monitoring and frontal collision warning.
