If only the biggest and best will do, your dream SUV has arrived: The 2022 Lexus LX 600 F Sport.

The full-size, ultra-luxury sports utility launches an all-new generation with its reengineered body-on-frame platform, avant-large exterior, and luxurious cabin embodies Lexus’ commitment to the needs and lifestyles of its customer base.

Brand spanking new in 1995, the LX 600 has long been recognized for its enduring quality, comfortable ride, plus tried-and-true off-road specifications and equipment that has taken it beyond the pavement in more than 60 countries across the globe.

LX 600 F Sport is powered by a high-output, high-torque, 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbocharged gas-powered engine mated to a 10-speed, direct-shift automatic transmission. The engine 409 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft. of torque. It has a maximum towing capacity of 8,000 pounds. I averaged close to 20 miles per gallon over a week of combined city and highway driving. Full-time four-wheel drive is at the ready when needed.

The three-row SUV seats up to seven adults in opulence. First and second-row passengers benefit from heated and ventilated, semi-aniline leather-trimmed seats. The power third-row seats fold flat with the push of a button when not needed to provide an oversized rear cargo area.

Everyone benefits from the power tilt-and-slide moonroof, thematic ambient illumination, USB ports, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless phone charging, and Mark Levinson 25-speaker, 2,400-watt surround sound system that fills the cabin with symphonic sound.

The driver and shotgun passenger specifically benefit from the heads up display, cool box, auto-dimming rearview mirror, aluminum foot pedals and illuminated door sills. The instrument panel features Lexus’ first dual interface display with a 12.3-inch upper screen and seven-inch lower screen designed to inform, not distract. The upper 12.3-inch display shows navigation, audio controls and the multi-terrain monitor during off-road driving. The lower seven-inch touch display shows the climate control screen and serves as a driving-support screen for multi-terrain select.

Styling features of the F Sport grade include exclusive 22-inch forged aluminum wheels and F mesh design spindle grille with jet-black chrome grille frame. Inside, the steering wheel and shifter feature textured genuine leather for improved style and grip, while the exclusive F Sport emblem is applied throughout. A custom crafted F designed seat further enhances hold against lateral g-forces. Ultra White (exterior) with Circuit Red (interior) are offered as an F Sport grade exclusive.

A standard Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 provides piece of mind with pre-collision system, frontal collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and bicyclist detection, all-speed dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, intelligent high beams, road sign assist, blind spot monitor, intuitive parking assist, and a panoramic view camera.

The Lexus LX 600 F Sport has no flaws. If you want to jump one step ahead of the Jones’s, a

test drive must be in your future.
