Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

The 2016 Lexus LX570 is expected to be launched globally in the coming months and the latest pictures of the top-spec variant have emerged from a yard, providing yet another look at the facelift.

2016 Lexus LX side spied (August 2015)
A larger ‘Spindle grille’, new headlamps, bumper, D-Pillar and wheels induce freshness into the LX.

The fascia has the domineering spindle-shaped grille outlined in chrome with horizontal slats. These are flanked by the swept-back headlamps incorporating LED units and L-shaped LED DRLs; with the lower end getting vertically-stacked fog lamps. The sides get new alloy wheels, foot step and a kink on the reworked D-pillar. The rear end now features angular lights with L-shaped DRLs, a bigger spoiler and chrome embellishments over the lights and license-plate housing.

2016 Lexus LX rear spied (August 2015)
The rear gets new boomerang shaped taillights, a new sculpted tailgate and a bumper to give it a more athletic look.

The design of the 2016 Lexus LX570 is an evolution over the previous generation taking its inspiration from the latest Lexus vehicles, particularly the Lexus NX. The interior has been lavished with wood and chrome, the AC vents are smaller with the dashboard getting a small analog clock. A three-spoke steering wheel, redesigned instrument cluster, large Enform infotainment display (that can be navigated using a mouse controller on the center tunnel) are other visible changes.

The rear seats seem to have received larger screens for entertainment system. Lexus is also likely to bring the Safety System+ suite of driver aids to this model which includes Pre-collision System with pedestrian detection function (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Automatic High Beam (AHB) and Radar Cruise Control. A head-up display unit could also be offered on the MY2016.

The powerplant will remain the same that is a 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine making 362 hp at 5,600 rpm and 530 Nm of torque available from 3,200 rpm. Transmission is likely to get upgraded from the current six-speed to an eight-speed unit. And as earlier 4WD will be coming as standard.
