The LX 570 competes with luxury SUVs, including the BMW X7 and Mercedes-Benz GLS. It offers a single-engine option, four-wheel drive, and respectable off-road capability.
Power comes from a 5.7-liter V-8 that makes 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Fuel economy isn’t bad at 12 mpg city/16 mpg highway/14 mpg combined.
The LX 570 features an abundance of luxury options. Our tester came with the $1,190 Luxury package that adds heated and ventilated front seats, Climate Concierge (essentially automatic climate control that works with heated and cooled seat settings to improve driver and passenger comfort better), and higher quality leather with contrast stitching.
The interior of the LX 570 is as luxurious as it gets in this segment. Leather lines the seats and door panels, while every switch and button moves with a weight that imbues a feeling of quality.
There are a variety of standard features to enjoy, too. These include the Lexus Safety System+ with forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring.
If you’re looking to go off-roading, you can use a multi-terrain selector to maximize traction and performance for five off-road conditions. Using a combination of automatic throttle and brake adjustments, the air suspension will raise the LX to three inches if necessary to gain ground clearance.
The 2020 Lexus LX 570 shares its platform with the Toyota Land Cruiser, which means this SUV can handle serious off-roading. It also features 8.9 inches of ground clearance, low-speed crawl control, and multi-terrain select drive modes.
However, it’s also a hefty vehicle that won’t be easy to maneuver in tight spaces and over curved roads. Its steering heft and highway tracking are adequate, but the body roll is too much, and the ride quality can be harsh.
Inside, the Lexus lx 570 is luxurious and well-equipped. It has plenty of comfort features and an infotainment system that isn’t advanced but is functional enough to make long drives easier.
This SUV also has many safety features that help keep you safe, including a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Intelligent High Beam headlamps, and Brake Assist. It’s one of the safer vehicles in its class, and it earns our Top Safety Pick+ award.
The Lexus lx 570 is one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs available on the market. It returns up to 18 MPG and can carry eight passengers comfortably while being easy to drive.
The 2020 Lexus lx 570 is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, so it shares its body structure and some off-road equipment. Its go-anywhere capability stands out in the segment, thanks to its legitimate four-wheel-drive system and Multi-Terrain settings.
Its low-range gearing is also very helpful, and the locking center and rear differentials give it a good torque split in all situations. Unlike many other full-size SUVs, the 2021 Lexus lx 570 does not require a tow hitch or trailer.
The 2020 Lexus lx 570 comes in two- and three-row configurations, with an array of options that add a 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, cooler box, 11.3-inch screens for second-row passengers, 21-inch wheels, softer leather hides, and open-pore wood trim. Loaded-up models also include a 12.3-inch infotainment screen and third-row seats that can be stowed in the tailgate when not needed.
If you’re looking for a big, comfortable, luxurious SUV that’s also tough, the Lexus lx 570 is hard to beat. It combines the off-road prowess of the Toyota Land Cruiser with Lexus-level luxury. However, it’s still not as powerful or technologically advanced as many full-size options on the market.
The interior of the lx 570 exudes the class and refinement you would expect from a luxury brand like Lexus, with rich, semi-aniline leather covering the seats and door panels. The dashboard has premium materials and features, including the latest Lexus navigation system.
In addition to all the comfort and convenience you could want, the lx 570 offers exclusive benefits for owners. This includes access to exclusive events, travel opportunities, and food and wine adventures.
