Current Lexus LX570

Image of updated Lexus LX leaked

Toyota will sell the Lexus version of its Land Cruiser 200 outside of Japan as the LX570. An image of the newly updated model has been leaked.

This was revealed by Middle East automotive news site Baniya Cars on its official Facebook page. It also showed the image here to its followers.

Toyota unveiled the LX570 at the New York Motor Show in April, 2007, as the Lexus version of the Land Cruiser 200. It had an even more luxurious feel than the Japanese version, with features not included in the Japanese version including its 5.7L V8 gasoline engine.

The 2013 model of the LX 570 made an appearance at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show in January, 2012. This is its first upgrade since the release of the current model. One area that’s been changed is the addition of the new face of Lexus, the spindle grille that’s also used for the new GS.

The leaked image shows the model’s second facelift. There are also reports that this new model will be introduced in Japan.
