It may be old, but still has a lot to offer. SUVs are usually associated with off-road performance, but things, in reality, are completely different. Most of them have to offer nothing more than rugged look. On the other side, the LX belongs to the very exclusive company of off-roaders. Moreover, it is also luxurious. However, that doesn’t change the fact the many areas of this vehicle are completely outdated, which seems natural, considering that the current generation is on the market since 2008. Seems like a too long period for today’s industry standards. Therefore, many car experts count on a soon redesign. However, the new model definitely won’t be ready for the next year. Latest reports suggest we are about to see 2020 Lexus LX 570 without more important changes. So, don’t expect to see it before late 2019.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 will come without changes. Practically, it is the same design that follows this nameplate for more than a decade. Just like its siblings, the Land Cruiser and Tundra, this SUV was also introduced in 2008. Of course, there have been several updates so far. The last one was three years ago, for the 2016-year model. For this occasion, we have seen a lot of interesting changes. Of course, most of them were in terms of aesthetics. The LX was adapted to the brand’s newest design language, famous for its spindle grille layout. There were also some mechanical changes. Just like the Land Cruiser, it received a new 8-speed transmission.
Two models have always been sharing most of their parts. Previous generations also featured the same mechanics. On the other side, each model features its own styling and that is the biggest drawback of the LX 570. In order to look more exclusive, Toyota engineers designed bumpers that actually causer lower approach and departure angles, so we can say this model is still slightly less capable than the legendary Land Cruiser.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Interior
Once again, expect no bigger changes. Though there have been a couple of updates so far, the overall cabin layout remained practically the same. The 2020 Lexus LX 570 will also come with two versions in the offer, with either two or three rows of seats. In both variants, front seats offer spectacular comfort, support, and overall quality. The second row is also quite spacious, while the third one is cramped and definitely can’t accommodate taller passengers. As you may presume, the cargo area is also pretty limited. Still, a good thing is that seats fold to the side, so you can enjoy a flat cargo floor. The overall quality is on a pretty high level, though younger competitors definitely offer finer materials and more attractive dashboard design.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Features
A great thing about the 2020 Lexus LX 570 will be that we once again won’t see all those unnecessary equipment groups and trim levels. Just like the Land Cruiser, this SUV also keeps things pretty simple. There is a single trim level, which comes with a pretty much a full load of standard equipment. Therefore, the list of standard features is pretty long. Since this is an off-roader, you can count on things like adaptive suspension, crawl control, multi-terrain select, and hill-assist. There is also a fine amount of on-road driver aids, such as forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, automatic park system, multi-angle cameras and much more.
In terms of aesthetics and exterior features, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 will offer LED headlights, power liftgate, towing hitch, automatic wipers, windshield wiper de-icers and much more.
On the inside, you can enjoy four-zone climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated seats, sunroof, keyless ignition and entry and much more.
Despite the age, this SUV also offers a fine amount of tech goodies, which includes a 12.3-inch center screen, navigation, Bluetooth, USB ports, 9-speaker sound system and much more.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Engine
Under the hood, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 will continue with a well-known 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine. This unit has been around for years, so it’s no wonder that the fuel economy isn’t spectacular at all. You can count on 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.
On the other side, you can count on a pretty fine amount of power, which goes around 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque. Three years ago, this SUV received a new 8-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to all four wheels.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Release Date and Price
The 2020 Lexus LX 570 should arrive in the last quarter of next year. We don’t expect bigger changes in terms of the price, which currently goes around 86.000 dollars.
