Featuring a subtle exterior redesign, the 2019 Lexus LX continues to be a solid option for consumers looking for an upscale SUV. Starting at $87,125 (all prices include the $1,295 destination charge), the LX is an easy vehicle to configure. It’s available in only LX 570 form as a two- or three-row SUV, with a single powerplant option, and with just a few package upgrades.

What's New for 2019

The 2019 Lexus LX received a fresh exterior enhancement for the new model year. We wouldn’t go so far as to call it a complete redesign, because, quite frankly, the cosmetic improvements are minor at best. The new LX 570 gains a few visual and technological enhancements with lighting, offers 20- and 21-inch wheels, and a larger grill and aggressive bumper.

Choosing Your Lexus LX

If you’re a consumer that hates multiple trims and upgrade packages, you’ll love the Lexus LX. Selecting your new 2019 Lexus LX 570 breaks down to whether you prefer a two- or three-row SUV. There are no sub-trim levels and it's only offered with all-wheel drive.

Each Lexus LX 570 is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque. Power is delivered to the standard AWD via an eight-speed automatic electronically controlled transmission. The EPA-estimated fuel economy comes in at 13 miles per gallon in the city, 18 mpg on the highway, and 15 combined.

570 Two-Row

The LX 570 Two-Row starts at $87,125. This edition seats five comfortably and is offered in six exterior colors and five leather interior patterns. The LX 570 features a huge 12.3-inch multimedia display that's mounted in the center console. This infotainment system includes standard navigation, traffic and weather streaming, and Bluetooth connectivity. The LX also comes standard with a power moonroof, an adaptive variable suspension, and several driver-assist safety features – forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and park assist. Additional features include a surround-view monitor, four-zone climate control, and 14-way power driver and 12-way front passenger seats.

There's a single package upgrade, the Luxury Package ($1,190), which adds the four-zone climate control concierge, perforated leather-trimmed interior, heated and ventilated front and second-row seats, and LX projector door lights.

570 Three-Row

The 2019 LX 570 Three-Row starts at $92,125 and seats eight passengers. It's nearly identical to the five-seater, but is available with several more standalone options. These include a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system for $2,005, a 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system for $2,350, a $900 color head-up display, and 21-inch wheels for $745. Wireless device charging can also be added for an extra $75.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Lexus LX is comparable with others in the luxury SUV segment. Choosing one really comes down to your needs and family size. The Three-Row offers consumers with extra room for a $5,000 price bump.

Stunning, well-crafted interior. Interiors in this class must rise above the impressive, embracing outstanding, and the designers at Lexus understand this. Open any door on the 2019 Lexus LX, step up using the standard illuminated running boards, and you’ll enter an interior designed to soothe and cosset.

Covered in soft leather and beautifully stitched, each seat is heated and cooled, both front seats are multi-adjustable (14-way driver with memory, 12-way passenger), the second row offers powered sliding, while the third row on models so equipped opens and closes at the push of a button.

The climate system monitors the temperature in four separate zones and, in addition to the steering wheel, the doors, dash, center console, and second row arm rest are trimmed in an array of leathers and warm linear-oriented, or open-pore wood.

Front seat occupants enjoy a spectacular measure of leg, hip, shoulder, and head room, while three adults can experience day-long traveling comfort in the second row. Of note: Lexus made the third row optional in 2018, so unless you have elementary-age kiddies, we suggest saving five large and treating yourself to an additional 5 cubic feet of cargo capacity by choosing the two-row model.

The instrumentation is straightforward and easy to understand, the switch gear works flawlessly, while driver visibility ranges from excellent (front and sides) to very good (rear three-quarters and out back). And while vehicle height is a factor, many of those issues are mitigated by the standard rearview and overhead cameras.

Smooth ride. A hallmark of the big Lexus LX is its supremely supple ride, offering all-day highway cruising comfort courtesy of a double wishbone front and four-link coil spring rear independent suspension, along with variable dampers at each corner.

Although most will spend the majority of their time schlepping to and from Nordstrom parking lots, the flagship of the brand’s SUV lineup is also a supremely capable off-roader.

Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the 5.7-liter V8 serves up plenty of power (383 hp) and, more importantly, a laudable 403 pound-feet of maximum torque at a very usable 3,600 rpm.

Full-time four-wheel-drive is augmented by a locking center differential, two-speed transfer case, and an adjustable suspension that can be lowered 2 inches for improved ingress and egress, while 3 additional inches of ride height can be dialed in for better off-road ground clearance.

The off-road chops of the LX are also sustained by a locking center differential, two-speed transfer case, and a terrain-specific traction control system that can be set to Rock, Rock and Dirt, Loose Rock, Mogul, and Mud and Sand.

Still, there’s no avoiding its three-ton bulk as the LX, despite good acceleration, lacks the agility of rivals with noticeable body lean in tight corners. Light steering transmits little of what the chassis is experiencing to the driver, which requires frequent small corrections during highway cruising.

Sleek design. A freshening for 2011 brought the third-generation LX up to the brand’s current design specs which include razor-sharp looks that encompass the largest and most imposing iteration yet of the eponymous spindle grille – a styling device that, on that rare occasion, negatively affects the big SUV’s approach angle.

Bracketing the icon are a pair of narrow, squinting headlight enclosures set above “L”-shaped LED signature lights that rest above another pair of small, round fog lights set in chrome-outlined faux brake ducts that mirror the L theme.

Breaking up the unavoidable slab-sided look of a vehicle this size is an upper character line between the door handles and beltline, deep sculpting of the lower door panels, and a sculpted, built-in running board between the wheels.

In back, the L theme is repeated with chrome trim pieces set atop imposing, horizontal LED taillights, with the hatch splitting at a cut line just above the license plate surround – the top half rising in normal fashion, while the bottom half drops to form a very usable tailgate that harkens back to the family station wagons of yore.

Lexus LX

Great screen, frustrating interface. The glorious 12.3-inch touchscreen in the Lexus LX comes with Bluetooth, navigation with voice command, satellite radio, a surround-view monitor, and can be split into sections to display three different functions simultaneously.

Unfortunately, the infotainment controls remain a major sticking point. Unlike a well-programmed touchscreen, the mouse-like, console-mounted controller is annoying to operate when parked, and spectacularly distracting to use while driving. Rival’s systems are a generation ahead, at the very least.

Final thoughts. The 2019 Lexus LX features a design that you either love or hate, an engine that consumes copious amounts of premium fuel, and infotainment controls that are both distracting and infuriating to use.

In spite of those issues, the Lexus LX continues to impress us with a strong V8, smooth ride, and luxurious interior. These strengths, backed by the impressive dealer experience and a spectacular quality record, continue to make it a solid choice in the full-size luxury SUV class.

Looking at the competition, the Lincoln Navigator offers more interior room in all three rows, the Land Rover Range Rover offers better approach and departure angles and is more stable at highway speeds, while the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLS 63 bests the LX 570’s 7.2-second 0-60 mph time by almost three seconds.
