Choosing your Lexus LX 570
The LX 570 yields to no competitor when it comes to bouncing through the wilderness. Every example carries full-time four-wheel drive with crawl control and hill-start assist. You also get a terrain selector to maximize traction and performance in five different off-road conditions. An adaptive air suspension ensures a plush ride for up to eight passenger in daily driving. The 5.7-liter V8 makes 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque, enough for the LX to tow up to 7,000 pounds.
The spacious cabin comes in full luxury dress with abundant wood trim and supple leather, heated power front seats, four-zone climate control, a sunroof, keyless ignition, a power-sliding second row and a power-folding third row. On the technology front, you get a navigation system, voice controls, numerous smartphone apps, a rearview camera and a nine-speaker audio system with a CD changer and satellite and HD radio. Other standards include 20-inch alloy wheels, adaptive xenon headlamps, and auto-dimming side mirrors with power-fold feature.
All remaining features are bundled into the enormous Luxury package, which makes your LX fully loaded in one fell swoop. You get upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel and second row, a refrigerated storage compartment, a 19-speaker Mark Levinson sound system and a rear entertainment system with dual video displays. Safety enhancements include front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera system, a collision warning system and adaptive cruise control.
If you're already shopping in this league, the Luxury package is something you won't want to do without. For about $8,300, you get an interior on par with the world's finest luxury sedans.
