Which LX 570 does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating3 / 5
Mechanically, there's not much separating the 2018 Lexus LX 570 from Toyota's Land Cruiser. They share the same chassis design, powertrain and general interior layout. They both specialize in going places most other vehicles wouldn't dare, with the safety net of a reliability reputation that stretches back decades.
Where do they diverge then? Well, think of the Land Cruiser as an outdoor adventurer going about his trek in a high-dollar shell jacket from REI. The LX 570 is wearing a high-dollar suit — it's still capable, but the fancy clothes do hold it back a bit.
You can tell just by looking at the LX 570's expressive Lexus styling that results in less ground clearance. The LX's big 20- or 21-inch wheels are also less conducive for venturing off the beaten path. Inside, the LX features higher-quality materials and ritzier design than its Toyota sibling.
Of course, the LX 570 also shares the Land Cruiser's inherent drawbacks. Its fuel economy is abysmal even by full-size SUV standards, and the third-row seat is cramped, difficult to reach and doesn't fold into the floor. Instead, it flips against the cargo area sides, which reduces utility.
For these reasons, another large luxury SUV would likely be a better choice if utility and family-hauling duty are priorities. But if you do like to venture off to places where pavement and traction are scarce, the LX 570 delivers capabilities that few other SUVs can match.
Trim levels & features
The 2018 Toyota LX 570 is a luxury SUV offered in two configurations: a standard three-row version that seats eight or a new two-row LX 570 that seats five..
Both come with a 5.7-liter V8 (383 horsepower, 403 pound-feet of torque) paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel-drive system. An adaptive suspension that is height adjustable and automatically levels the load is also standard.
Other standard mechanical components include 20-inch wheels, Crawl Control (a low-speed off-road cruise control), Multi-Terrain Select (off-road vehicle settings) and hill start assist.
Standard exterior features include automatic LED exterior lighting, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, automatic wipers, windshield wiper de-icers, running boards, a tow hitch and a power-operated liftgate.
Electronic driver aids include standard forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems, lane departure warning, full-speed adaptive cruise control, driver inattention warning, an automatic parking system, multiview parking cameras, and Lexus Enform Safety Connect emergency communications.
Interior comfort and convenience features include a sunroof, keyless ignition and entry, four-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, driver-seat memory settings and a 40/20/40-split second-row seat (folding, reclining, power-sliding and heated). The three-row LX 570 also has a 50/50-split third-row seat that folds up against the cargo area sides (power-operated).
Infotainment features includes the Lexus Remote Touch interface (a 12.3-inch center display with center console mouselike controller), a navigation system, Bluetooth, a USB port, Lexus Enform infotainment smartphone app suite, and a nine-speaker sound system.
Optional features on the three-row LX 570 include 21-inch wheels, a head-up display, Lexus Enform Remote (smartphone vehicle controls), a wireless smartphone charger, a refrigerated coolbox under the front center armrest and a 19-speaker Mark Levinson sound system. There's also an optional rear-seat entertainment system (includes a pair of displays mounted to the front seatbacks) and a Luxury package that adds heated and ventilated second-row seats and upgraded leather upholstery with contrasting stitching.

2018 Lexus LX 570 for Sale
Appeal for the 2018 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 luxury SUV conversation alongside the Cadillac Escalade or the 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 the 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. It is lavish with most everything standard. An available Luxury package (for the three-row version) includes top-grade leather and heated and ventilated seats for the front and the second row. Other options include a Mark Levinson sound system, a head-up display, a rear-seat entertainment system and 21-inch wheels.
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, it 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. All of that is shared with the Land Cruiser, but the LX 570 stands out with an adaptive suspension with height adjustment, load leveling and four driver-selected modes.
Fuel economy is expectedly low in the unrefined, old-school V8 of the LX 570. The EPA estimates 15 mpg combined (13 city/18 highway). That's poor even among full-size SUVs.
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. Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2018 Lexus LX 570 for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Lexus LX 570?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
