Lexus‘ new design language is catching attention. The spindle grille and more aggressive styling is serving to take what was becoming a bland-looking brand into a newly vital luxury line.

We originally saw the 2013 Lexus LX debut in Detroit last January, but there hasn’t been much else about the large SUV since then. That’s mostly because aside from the styling updates found across the board, there isn’t really anything new. The same 5.7-liter V8 making  383 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque and electronically-controlled six-speed automatic transmission send power to the wheels in the LX 570.

That is by no means a bad thing and doesn’t change the fact that the original LX, which debuted in 1996 as a Toyota Land Cruiser in a tuxedo, is still carrying its luxurious tradition of rugged capability and genteel style.

A couple of new videos featuring the LX just surfaced and while they don’t offer any new information, there’s some beautiful scenery on tap.
