With the effervescent release of the new Lexus LX 570, the brand ‘Lexus’ has proved once again its caliber and its determination in keeping its words i.e. Experience Amazing.
Lexus lx 570: Everything you need to know
This luxury SUV is surely a tough competition for other luxury SUVs in the market!
With a 383 Hp and 403 pound-feet of torque, you experience true power produced by a 5.7L 32-Valve DOHC V8 engine. Moreover, the comfort of the luxurious interior is boosted by an 8-speed Automatic Transmission that ensures a smooth ride.
Interior& Cargo Capacity
The two trims that Lexus LX 570 comes in are the LX 570 2-Row and the LX 570 3-Row. Although there are a few features exclusive to the LX 570 3-row trim, both are mostly similar. Some of the features that both trims offer are:
- Hill-start assist control
- Full-time four-wheel drive with traction control
- Turn assist
- Auto-dimming mirrors
- Multi-Terrain Select (off-road vehicle settings)
Lexus offers a full luxury package in its SUV consisting of ventilation and heating for seats of the two initial rows. This SUV has many premium materials and comes with spacious seating which can accommodate 8 passengers. Moreover, the quality of leather stitching and the wooden material sets a comforting environment.
Although, the third row seats are a bit cramped (which isn’t rare in 3-row SUVs) the second row seats can be adjusted electronically to provide more space in the third row.
The cargo capacity of the SUV is the least compared to other SUVs which comes a bit unexpected looking at its exterior.
Exterior & Dimensions
The Lexus LX 570 is the heaviest among its rivals weighing about 6000 lbs. Although the width, ground clearance, and wheelbase are similar to the Land cruiser it is 5 inches longer than it.
Engine & Transmission
Whereas the interior has an effect on the overall experience of an automobile, what actually make the difference are its engine and transmission. The Lexus LX 570 comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission which enhances the driving experience offered by the 5.7L V8 engine.
Even with an excitingly strong engine, the acceleration rate of the SUV is lower than that of its competitors mainly because it is also heavier than its competitors. It takes 7.3 seconds for Lexus LX 570 to reach 60 mph from a standstill; whereas, Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 (SUV) takes only 6.5 seconds.
Even with one of the strongest engines to its name, Lexus falls back considerably in its towing capacity which is only 7000 lbs.
Although Lexus has put many features that make the ride a comfortable one, the handling system it offers does not complement it.The steering of the vehicle is not precise which affects the steadiness of the SUV.
However, it goes without saying that the crawl control is a splendid addition to the SUV as it is a great help while on an off-road ride. It helps the vehicle to adjust to the uneven terrain.
The braking system of the Lexus LX 570 seems impressive on paper but practically lags behind its competitors. It takes 123 ft. to completely stop from a speed of 60 mph while the GLS 450 only requires 120 ft.
SUVs have lower fuel economy compared to other segments due to the fact that they have heavier bodies and stronger engines. Lexus LX 570 has the lowest fuel economy compared to its competitor SUVs with 13 mpg city and 18 mpg highway.
The Lexus LX 570 has a price range of $85,380 to $90,380 which makes it the most expensive vehicle of its segment.
