Lexus Company is undoubtedly one of the leading car manufacturers in making luxury premium vehicles. This time they are preparing the arrival of the new and better than ever 2018 Lexus LX 570. This is a full-size SUV which is known for its functionality, excellent towing capacity, good performance and strength. Its capability can be compared to the one of the Toyota Land Cruiser which represents one of the most capable cars on the road.
Moreover, LX 570 offers and excellent space inside, very handsome design and a wide choice of latest tech features and systems. However, for the 2018 model, there is still no official data about the specific changes which this model will bring. We assume that it will definitively appear with several improvements in every area. Perhaps, we could expect improved fuel economy which is its major disadvantage. The Lincoln Navigator and Mercedes-Benz GLS will be its main rivals on the market.
