2016 Lexus LX 570 OVERVIEW

The traditional SUV in the Lexus lineup, the LX 570 is capable of handling any sort of terrain, while keeping everyone comfortable in its practically decadent interior. Lexus follows the classic full-size luxury SUV formula: burly capabilities off-road, augmented by undiluted grandeur when back on the pavement. Unlike crossover models, the LX 570 retains separate body-on-frame construction. Toyota’s Land Cruiser, closely related structurally, provides similar utility with fewer luxuries, but its price isn’t so much lower.

What's New for 2016

Redesigned for the 2016 model year, the third-generation LX 570 gets a new eight-speed automatic transmission and more standard safety features, including a blind-spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert and a tire-specific tire-pressure monitor.

New standard features include a panoramic-view camera, useful when hitching and maneuvering a trailer, and a Climate Concierge. The multimedia system gets a larger (12.3-inch) screen and Remote Touch Interface. Lexus Enform Service Connect and a head-up display now are available. New, larger dual screens are used for the available rear-seat entertainment system.

Choosing Your Lexus LX 570

Lexus LX 570 Interior

A full-fledged SUV, the LX 570 yields to few competitors when it comes to bounding through the wilderness. Every LX has full-time four-wheel drive with crawl control and hill-start assist. A multi-terrain selector maximizes traction and performance for five different off-road conditions. An adaptive air suspension ensures a plush ride for up to eight passengers in daily on-road driving. On the console, new Drive Mode Select has three settings: Eco, Comfort, and Sport S. The system can control the adaptive variable suspension.

The 5.7-liter V8 makes 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque, sufficient to tow up to 7,000 pounds. As expected, fuel economy is not a benefit, estimated at 13 mpg city/18 mpg highway.

The spacious cabin comes in full luxury dress with abundant wood trim and supple leather. Standard equipment includes heated power front seats, four-zone climate control, a moonroof, an Easy Access system, power-sliding second-row seat and a power-folding third row.

On the technology front, you get a navigation system, voice control, smartphone apps, a rearview camera, and a nine-speaker audio system with a CD/DVD changer and satellite and HD radio. Active Height Control can lower the vehicle 2 inches to ease entry/exit. Other standard features include 20-inch alloy wheels, adaptive xenon headlamps, and auto-dimming side mirrors with a power-fold feature.

Newly standard, the Lexus Safety System includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert, intelligent high beam, and all-speed dynamic radar cruise control.

An optional Luxury Package adds upgraded semi-aniline leather upholstery, heated/ventilated front and second-row outboard seats, and a heated steering wheel. Standalone options include a 19-speaker, 450-watt Mark Levinson sound system; a rear entertainment system with dual video displays; and 21-inch wheels.

CarsDirect Tip

Only the door panels were carried over from the prior generation, according to Lexus, with most changes centered on the front end. Previously, we recommended the Luxury Package, but the 2016 version doesn’t add as much to the feature list. Apart from separately-optional Mark Levinson sound and rear-seat entertainment, the basic LX 570 isn’t lacking in many areas. A hefty price increase brings the 2016 LX 570 close to $89,000.
