The Land Cruiser of a King

2009 Lexus LX 570 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
This vehicle is the 4th LX we have purchased. Following in the traditions of our LX 450 and two LX 470s, the LX 570 continues Lexus' trend of building quality vehicles that will endure the abuse of winters in Upstate New York, while also continuing to perform at a high level. The ride quality is excellent, with active height control and driver-controlled suspension. The Adaptive Front Lighting System finally makes its appearance on the flagship Lexus SUV, which makes navigating the winding roads of the Adirondacks that much easier in darkness. The styling is reminiscent of the LS 460, carefully lifted and placed upon an LX chassis. You will not be disappointed with this vehicle.
The front and side view cameras are a great innovation on the new LX. Being able to see right in front of the bumper and along the curb are a great help in parallel parking such a hulk of an SUV.
Sadly, the LX 570 did not have the option of removable third row seats as its predecessors did. However, the addition of power lifting to those seats does make things much easier when trying to find extra room for more passengers.
