The only SUV that matters
db, 10/8/2017
I have a 2017 LX 570 and this is my third LX dating back to 2002. My previous vehicle was a 2006 LX; I absolutely love the upgrades both internally and externally. I would not comment on the mpg as a negative--especially considering this is a full-time four-wheeled drive vehicle that weighs over 7,000 lbs--poor mpg is to be expected. I considered purchasing a Mercedes G Wagon or a Range Rover Autobiography...regardless of the curb appeal for those vehicles, none can compare to the LX's reliability and resale value. Having an attractive SUV that only looks good but cannot withstand the test of time (unreliable) is an oxymoron. I look forward to additional LX upgrades in time. The only SUV that matters.
2017 LX570 KING OF SUVS
John M, 3/18/2017
Trulely the king of suvs I have had serval suvs including g wagons Range Rover escalade 4 runner LX570 is the DADDY HANDS DOWN. It is the most comfortable SUV for road trips with o cooler in the armrest that fits a full bottle of champagne and still has room. Looks that are amazing and gets complements all the time. If you are thinking about getting one go for it as I can tell Ashly say this is the best SUV ever built.
The best SUV in this category
TommyJames, 10/8/2017
This is LX570 #4 for me. I've never owned four of anything, and every time I think about getting another LX570, I read about all others in the same category and drive them to see if there is something better. There isn't. And with each passing year, the LX570 just gets better. Yes, there are two other brands that are perceived to have higher status, but both have crappy resale and are filled with antiquated technology. I've taken mine in soft sand on the Washington Coast, without any problems or fear of getting stuck. I have used crawl control twice. There is no vehicle better suited for a road trip. It's the ultimate for that purpose, except for the low gas mileage. Don't pay attention to the computer that shows you getting 12. I'm getting closer to 15-18, which still isn't great, but this is a massive, very heavy SUV. I keep buying them because given the value and high resale, the overall cost of ownership is far lower than the other two in the same price point. American SUVs feel cheap to me and don't have the same attention to detail. I also have an S550 and I still prefer driving the LX570. It's also the little details, the quality of the switches, the feel of buttons, all the touch points that make the LX a better vehicle. Some of the others look cooler, more trendy, but you pay for it in lost features and horrible resale. If this is a dog hauler, it's best with the third row seat down and a seat cover. With the two seats up, the critters don't have any side visibility and the window line is high. Best to toss them in the third row seat, which still leaves enough room for groceries behind the third row, and a hair-free back seat. It's that third row seat for dogs that is a must for me. When you put it in Sport mode, it really does stiffen up and you can toss it around while paddle shifting. Yes, it's a beast and don't expect it to want to grip the road like the family Lamborghini, however that said, it will delight you if you let it. What I love about Lexus is that they just don't break. In my years of owning the brand, I've only had a few occasions when I had any unscheduled maintenance and that was in the 90s. I have about 4,000 miles on my 2017 and I'm thrilled with it. I do wish the second row had a tiny bit more leg room, but it's still not bad. Other gripes- though minor, would be the way you can't control the GPS while in camera mode on split screen. Also, when it comes to media, you have to spend some time getting to know the full capabilities. It can do a lot. The seats are extremely comfortable on very long drives and the cooler between the seats gets used all the time. I LOVE this thing!
Great in some ways, but definite issues
Chris K., 11/3/2017
Nice large vehicle with good safety features such as numerous, well distributed airbags. I consider the 6000 pound weight a bit of a safety feature as well. Has a number of issues which would place this vehicle between a 3 and 4 star rating for me. I had a 2011 model which I traded for a 2016. The engine in the newer model is more sluggish, and if a more rapid acceleration is desired, the engine sounds like a 4 cylinder that is about to throw a rod. The 2011 engine and transmission strangely seemed quite superior.This is usually sold with the 21 inch wheels, and as I found out after purchase, that Dunlop is the only manufacturer of a tire this size. Not a very good tire and I am at this moment in my 3rd week without being able to drive my car because the tires are nationally on a back order. The vehicle is sitting at my Lexus dealer, who doesn't really know what to tell me at this point. The screens for watching television in the back seat stick so far off of the backs of the front seats that they encroach on the headspace of the rear seat passengers. I found this almost scary when I sat in the back seat. Anti-lock brake mechanism is not smooth and if hard braking is required, the tires seem to skip around on the road. Not sure how much of this is due to the tire quality versus the anti-lock quality.

More about the 2017 Lexus LX 570

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.
