A 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 diesel engine with 309PS and 700 Nm powers the LX500d. The engine will be coupled with an all-wheel drive system and a 10-speed automated transmission. Additionally, it has several drive modes, including Custom, Normal, Eco, Comfort, Sport S, and Sport S+.
The LX 500d's interior has a dual-screen layout, with the bottom 7.0-inch screen as the temperature control system and the higher 12.3-inch screen as the infotainment system. In the instrument cluster, there is also an 8.0-inch multi-information display. Additionally, there will be two 11.6-inch touchscreens with wireless remote controls for the backseat passengers.
The Lexus LX500d is strictly available in India as a 5-seater and will compete against the new Range Rover and Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600.
