There are plenty of luxury SUV and crossover models you can buy these days but the newest model 2019 Lexus LX 570 is a bit different. The luxurious cousin of venerable Toyota Land Cruiser offers enough lavish features but its truck root is still evident. For 2018, the model gets a small makeover.
2019 Lexus LX 570 Exterior and Interior
While the 2019 Lexus LX 570 is modeled on its less luxurious Toyota cousin, it is made to resemble a different beast on wheels! It is little bigger than the Land Cruiser in size, as it is. At the front, you get the typical Lexus spindle grille. Whether it is attractive or not is a different issue- you cannot take your eyes off it easily. The rear side is also somewhat SUV like. It will be sold in several exciting exterior hues.
The cabin of 2019 Lexus LX 570 exudes subdued elegance. Quality of materials is definitely better than what is used in the Land Cruiser. However, it is still not on par with what you get in a BMW or Land Rover. The dashboard is well designed and it is not cluttered. The cabin is big enough to accommodate 5 adults with ease. The third row is, however, best kept for kids. You get some seat adjusting mechanism as well.
Amenities and Safety Features
The amenities and safety features in 2019 Lexus LX 570 are good but not class leading. You get 10 airbags, stability control and a rearview camera. You also get some advanced safety features like automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking etc. The vehicle is also laden with Lexus’s Enform connectivity system and it is offered free for 10 years.
The features like LED headlights, 20-inch wheels, navigation, keyless ignition are there. You get ventilated seats, DVD entertainment system at back row as options. A luxury package is there too. It gets semi-aniline perforated leather seats and Heated rear seats. You may also opt for a supreme quality Mark Levinson audio system
2019 Lexus LX 570 Engine Specifications
The upcoming model Lexus LX 570 is powered by a 5.7-liter V-8 engine making 383 HP and it is paired with an 8-speed Electronically Controlled automatic gearbox. Fuel economy is average.
The various electronic traction modes and electrohydraulic suspension ensure you get a smooth ride most of the times. Towing capacity is 7,000 pounds. While it can tackle rough terrains, it would be a mistake to consider the vehicle on par with the Land Cruiser. Cabin noise is minimal and the noise insulating materials used by Lexus are good.
2019 Lexus LX 570 Price and Availability
The exact time of the release of 2019 Lexus LX 570 is not clear. But a late 2018 date is logical. Its base price can be close to $91,000.
The newest Lexus LX 570 is a midsized luxury crossover that gets a mild makeover. Design styling changes are evident and the cabin is quite luxurious. The engine is powerful and the safety features are also decent. However, it still lags behind the rivals from stables of JLR and BMW in lavishness and overall prowess.
