From the rear end, the Toyota Landcruiser 300 series twin carries a badge as the Lexus LX600. the new lx 600 is set to replace the outgoing Lexus 570 4×4 four-wheel-drive SUV. Apart from that, here are some of the things we know about the incoming luxurious Lexus LX600 starting from the styling, engine, revealed date and price.
Straight from the teaser images and video, the 2022 Lexus LX600 appears to maintain the same boxy shaped body. The boxy shape is also similar to the one of its twin, the LC 300 series.

Different from the LandCruiser is the taillights which appear to be well connected via a light bar. The rear window also appears to be slightly more slanted forward.
