Lexus has equipped all units of the LX Inspiration Series with heated and ventilated front and second-row outboard seats, four-zone climate control, rear-seat entertainment system, Mark Levinson audio and a color head-up display. The cool box, wireless charger for mobile devices, 12.3-inch navigation display and others are also offered as standard.

The Lexus Safety System+ bundle of driving assistance systens comes at no extra cost. Features included here are the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, radar cruise control and intelligent high-beam headlamps, in addition to the Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

Lexus’ 2019 LX Inspiration Series benefits from the sturdy body-on-frame construction as the rest of the family. This, combined with the five-mode multi-terrain system that includes Rock, Rock and Dirt, Mogul, Loose Rock, and Mud and Sand, low-range gearing, Crawl Control, hill-start assist and others make the SUV a more than potent off-roader.

The 5.7-liter V8 engine, rated at 383 hp (388 PS / 286 kW) and 403 lb-ft (546 Nm) of torque, is married to a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic gearbox.

      I would rather have this than the Navigator, exterior-wise, but I prefer the Navi’s interior. This interior is good too, great color scheme and contrast. I think I’d prefer this in white.
