Latest reports suggest that the 2018 Lexus LX will come without bigger changes. This full-size luxury SUV is in production for more than two decades and it definitely proved itself as an excellent machine. The original model came in 1996 and we have seen three generations of it so far. The current model is present for a very long time, more than a decade. However, it received three big updates so far and we can say that this amazing SUV is still more than enough competitive, despite its age.

So, 2018 LX will continue in the same way, without bigger changes in all aspects.
