Will launch in the Middle East soon.

So far, the facelifted 2016 Lexus LX has been revealed inside and out, leaving nothing to the imagination, courtesy of instagram user Hamad1two3. Along with the facelifted Toyota Land Cruiser, it is expected to launch in the coming weeks in Middle Eastern countries.

The 2016 Lexus LX features a striking design that falls in line with Lexus’ latest products. It sports a large Lexus Spindle grille flanked by swept-back LED headlamps with bold “L-shaped” LED DRLs. The side profile gets a more-pronounced kink in the D-pillar design and new alloy rims designs, while the rear of the Lexus LX comes with L-Shaped LED taillights, new reflectors, and a new roof spoiler.

Like the exterior, the interior represents a much bigger change over the outgoing model, and distances itself from its Toyota counterpart. The 2016 Lexus LX comes with a new dashboard housing smaller HVAC vents, analog clock, and a generous helping of wood and silver trim. The steering wheel is now a 3-spoke multifunction unit sitting in front of a new instrument cluster

The new center console features a larger Enform infotainment display navigated via a mouse controller on the center tunnel. A head-up display could also be added in the options list.

It will continue sourcing power from the 5.7-liter V8 petrol in the LX570 variant, which delivers 362 hp at 5,600 rpm and 530 Nm at 3,200 rpm. An eight-speed transmission could replace the current six-speed automatic gearbox, while an intelligent 4WD system actively adjustable with different terrain modes is offered as standard.
