Its just an engine from the LS engine family.

LS1 with LS6 heads becomes LSX


The LSX block came around after the term had already been coined

The term LSx came about when everyone started mixing and matching parts on the 4.8, 5.3, 5.7, 6.0, etc. Then GM released their badass block and called it the LSX block. Thereby confusing shit.

only confusing at times because people dont take the time to make sure they are using the right upper case or lower case x and 80% of the time its someone who has an LSx shown by firechikn and say LSX because they dont know theres a difference or wanna feel special saying the have an LSX when they dont

^^^^ Exactly

The only thing in common with the older generation blocks is the bellhousing bolt pattern.

Also GM makes the LS engines, Chevrolet made the sbc and bbc. I dont consider the LS to be chevrolet. Its all GM now, the divisions are all unified and all use the same stuff... the separate divisions are long gone.... along with Chevrolet in my opinion.

Also LSX refering to an engine in just that... An LS based engine. Not sure how people would assume its an LSX block, people running other after market blocks dont refer to their engines by the block name... so why would anyone with an LSX engine?
