2017 Lexus LX 570 SUV
- A smooth ride over rough roads

Features & Specs
Appeal for the 2017 Lexus LX 570 runs deeper than the luxurious amenities associated with its pedigree. That is because underneath it has the off-road chops of the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser on which it is based. It is the full-size SUV that established Toyota around the world as the builder of tough machines that could shrug off abuse and look dignified doing it. Consider the LX 570 as a Land Cruiser wearing evening clothes.
It seems natural to consider the LX 570 in the large, three-row luxury SUV conversation alongside the Cadillac Escalade or Lincoln Navigator. But philosophically the LX 570 is closer to the Range Rover in that they are purebred SUVs unwilling to compromise on all-terrain functionality without losing focus on the finer things. Keeping with the spirit of its personality of extremes, the LX 570 is both the most expensive vehicle (by base price) and heaviest (6,000 pounds) that Lexus sells in the United States.
Beyond its virtues of ruggedness and off-road capability, the LX 570 is astonishingly luxurious. There is only one trim level offered. It is lavish with most everything standard. An available Luxury package includes top-grade leather, heated and ventilated seats for the front and second row, and four-zone climate control. The only option beyond that is a dual-screen rear seat entertainment system that is just as inviting to parents as it is to the kids in the back seat.
Electronic technology is extensive in the LX 570. It includes hill descent and crawl control to overcome the muddiest, stickiest of situations. But at its mechanical core this is a relatively simple beast. The engine is the same 5.7-liter V8 used by Toyota in other SUV and truck applications and is rated at 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque. Also standard is an eight-speed automatic transmission and full-time four-wheel drive. It has an independent suspension up front and solid axle in the rear.
Fuel economy is expectedly low in the unrefined, old-school V8 of the LX 570. The EPA estimates 15 mpg combined (13 mpg city, 18 mpg highway).
Competition between full-size luxury SUVs is close. Some have larger third rows than the LX and some ride more comfortably, but few can compete with its interior detail and off-road prowess. Whatever your reasons for choosing the LX 570, we are here to inform, educate and get your car search headed in the right direction.
