The Lexus LX 570 could be the right choice if you’re in a market for a luxury SUV with a three-row seating configuration, excellent towing capability, and a strong V-8 unit. As well, the LX 570 is capable to conquer any type of terrain, although it is not as capable as the Land Cruiser. Nevertheless, it is a reliable vehicle which also offers many safety features as standard. The 2018 model year is already available on the market and has brought the Lexus’s Enform Safety and Service Connect telematics system which is offered for the first 10 years without any charge. It has also added a new exterior color “Eminent White Pearl” while the Starfire Pearl has been deleted. However, this time we will talk about the newest version of this model which will hit the market as the 2019 Lexus LX 570.
The 2019 Lexus LX 570 shouldn’t arrive with any significant changes except that this time it will bring a two-row seating configuration in one trim level which we will cover separately. Perhaps it could get some small upgrades in the equipment field but it is not yet confirmed since there isn’t any specific information.
2019 Lexus LX 570 engine and performance
The newest 2019 Lexus LX 570 will return with the same engine as the current model. And there is one single option available. It is a 5.7-liter V-8 engine which is able to develop 383 horses and the torque of 403 lb-ft. It will work with an 8-speed automatic transmission and the all-wheel drive system will be standard. As for the fuel economy, it will get 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. Its towing capacity will be up to 7,000 pounds.
Speaking of the driving impressions, the LX 570 provides a smooth ride and good maneuverability but it is a bit noisy inside the cabin, more than expected for Lexus.
Design of exterior and interior
The 2019 Lexus LX 570 will most likely carry over with the same boxy and muscle design of the current model. It will feature the same spindle grille which will dominate the front end and angular LED headlamps. The rear end wears massive taillights and accentuated sporty bumper. It will ride on large 20-inch wheels.
The cabin of the 2019 Lexus LX 570 will offer an ample cabin with three rows of seats and ability to welcome up to seven passengers. The interior is also very pleasant with nice finishes and details. The third row is rather small even for small occupants but they can fold out for more cargo room. The dashboard is fitted with a 12.3-inch touchscreen with the infotainment system. The standard equipment will include navigation, leather upholstery, Bluetooth, audio system with 9 speakers, quad-zone climate control, a power moonroof and many other more. Mark Levinson audio with 19 speakers and a rear-seat entertainment system with a dual 11.2-inch screen will be optional.
Release date and price
The 2019 Lexus LX 570 could appear sometime during this year or in early 2019. The pricing should remain similar and it starts at around $86,000.
