There are already high expectations for the 2022 Lexus LX 600 because of a certain famous family member. The popular Toyota Land Cruiser is its ancestor. Like young basketball phenom Bronny James, the Lexus LX 600 has greatness in its DNA. A capable relative doesn’t guarantee greatness, but the LX 600 shares many of the traits that made the Land Cruiser so great.

The Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the longest-kept SUVs for a reason. In fact, the SUV tops the list of longest-kept SUVs because its design made the Land Cruiser one of the longest-lasting SUV models ever made. They don’t make vehicles like they used to anymore, but the new LX 600 is surely reminiscent of its accomplished ancestor.

The new LX 600 has taken inspiration from the Land Cruiser, and Lexus has already boasted about its off-roading capabilities. It is being marketed as a luxury large SUV that also performs well off the beaten path. Sound familiar?

Lexus, Toyota’s luxury division, has never been the most affordable brand. The automaker does offer luxury at decent prices, but all that leather, tech, and performance does add up one way or the other. The LX 600 is a luxury SUV, and it certainly has a luxury SUV price.

According to Edmunds, the 2022 Lexus LX 600 is estimated to start at $90,000. Large luxury SUV models tend to be pricey, but a starting price of $90,000 is still too steep for the average American consumer. The Ford Expedition Platinum MAX starts at around $75,000. The Expedition has been one of the Land Cruiser’s main rivals over the years, and this competition could carry over to the LX 600.

The high starting price gets you a twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter engine that makes 409 horsepower. The LX 600 also comes standard with a dual-display configuration touchscreen digital instrument panel. The upper screen is 12.3 inches, and the lower screen is 7 inches. It features a predictably luxurious cabin and amazing handling.

The Lexus LX 600 comes in five different trim levels
