The New Lexus LX Would Be F-ing Hot As The LX F

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Who thought that grille could be any more of a talking point? It
was only a couple of weeks ago that Lexus revealed the facelifted 2016 LX SUV,
the company’s flagship SUV which has never apologized for being big, bulky,
and luxurious. But while other members of the Lexus family have, in recent
years, been given an F performance version, the LX never got its own F-branded
high-performance model. And with competitors, like the Mercedes-Benz GL,
spawning hotter variants like the GL63 AMG, maybe it’s time for Lexus to offer
an F variant that could look a little something like this:

With the latest facelift, Lexus brought its current language to the top
of its SUV ladder, adding the massive spindle grille that is now the central
design element on all of its cars. In this rendering, the grille becomes darker
and the SUV’s ride height is lowered. It is given bigger wheels and brakes and
looks like it definitely could fit into the F family, albeit as its bulkiest
member. But what could power the LX F, when the new LX already makes use of the
5.7-liter V8 that produces 383 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque? In the past, Lexus used
a supercharger on a special edition of the LX designated solely for the Gulf States,
offering 450 hp. Would that, and this design, be enough to make this a real F
model?
