Freshened Lexus LX gets 8-speed, updated interior and exterior

A bolder version of the Lexus spindle grille is among the 2016 LX SUV’s new exterior features.

MONTEREY, Calif. — For 2016, the Lexus LX gets a dramatically updated interior and exterior, with a more aggressive version of the Lexus spindle grille, LED headlights, revised taillights, and new rear bumper and wheel options.

Inside, the SUV gains a new 12.3-inch infotainment screen in the revamped dashboard. A new eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the former six-speed, and an adaptive variable suspension keeps potholed roads at bay.

A new standard suite of safety features includes adaptive cruise control, precollision braking with pedestrian detection and lane-keeping assistance.

Lexus showed off the freshened LX, one of its most profitable models, last week at this monied coastal enclave during Monterey Car Week.

Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date this fall.
