Although Toyota’s legendary off-road Land Cruiser SUV will not be returning to the United States, the Lexus LX600, its upscale twin, will be available. Lexus has presented a customised LX Offroad vehicle in partnership with aftermarket equipment supplier JAOS ahead of the Tokyo Auto Salon in 2022.

The LX600 Offroad, a customised variant of the LX produced for the Japanese market, is the basis for the JAOS-modified display car. It gets lighter front and rear skid plates made of CFRP (carbon-fiber-reinforced polymers), as well as larger CFRP wheel arches. The exhibition car is outfitted with Enkei 20-inch wheels and Toyo Open Country A/T III 285/55R20 tyres. Mud flaps are also present on all four corners.

The twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V-6 in the LX600 remains unchanged, producing 409 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. Four-wheel drive is standard, and the engine is connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission. For greater off-road agility, the Offroad model includes locking differentials in the front, centre, and rear. While the modifications displayed on the Tokyo Auto Salon demonstration car are unlikely to be available from the factory, they demonstrate how owners of the new LX600 can improve their luxury Land Cruiser’s ability to handle muddy terrain.
