Lexus LX 570 Test Drive Review
At the Off-road Invitational, an entire variety of vehicles was offered from different manufacturers. One SUV, in particular, I looked forward to jumping behind the wheel of was the 2019 Lexus LX 570. The many courses offered at General Sam’s Off-road Park gave us the ideal terrain to test the LX 570’s capabilities. The main course I drove on had many challenges, especially with the rain pouring down on us during this two-day event. However, from crawling out of muddy craters to climbing up hills, this luxury SUV was able to tackle everything in its way with ease. The full-time four-wheel-drive system with a TORSEN limited-slip center differential and manual locking was a much-needed feature. Another great feature was the under-vehicle camera that showed not just what was up ahead but also what the front of the vehicle was approaching, so you were never surprised at the obstacle ahead.
If you are looking for an SUV associated with outdoor recreation and off-road with luxury, look no further than to the 2019 Lexus LX 570. The newest facelift continues its elegant and sophisticated look with a large grill, and distinctive redesigned LED headlights. In addition, you can choose two configurations: a two-row version that seats five and offers the most cargo space or a three-row version that seats 8.
The 5.7-liter V8 offers 383 horsepower and 403 lbs. of torque.
The V8 engine works in sync with an eight-speed sequential-shift automatic transmission that has a towing capacity of 7,000 lbs. In addition, you are ready to tackle off-road challenges with its full-time four-wheel drive, height-adjustable suspension, and advanced system features like crawl control and multi-terrain select. The LX 570 also offers a bird’s eye view of the vehicles surrounding for added safety and peace of mind.
The interior features modern artisan-crafted wood trim and a self-monitoring heated and leather-trimmed steering wheel. The seats are incredibly soft with high-grade semi-aniline perforated leather. It has a 14-way driver and 12-way front passenger power-adjustable seats. The rear has customizable seating and storage that is versatile. It features a power sliding 60/40 second-row seat with a 40/20/40 split setback. A 50/50 split third-row seat is in the three-row version. The cabin has four-zone climate control with 28 vents and heated and ventilated seats. There is also a cool box to keep your beverages chilled. The 2019 Lexus LX 570 takes an already luxurious platform and elevates it to world-class status. With an MSRP of $86,080.00, it will stand out for its luxury accommodation and off-road proficiency.
