The LX 570’s 5.7-liter V8 delivers the punch and towing power demanded in this segment. The new, high-tech powerplant produces 383 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and peak torque of 403 lb.-ft at 3,600 rpm. Crucial to LX customers who tow with their vehicles, 90 percent of peak torque is available at just 2,200 RPM.
Even at very low speeds, such as trail driving, the transmission operates smoothly and imperceptibly.
The LX 570’s highly capable chassis is equipped with an advanced suspension system. Body-on-frame construction provides ruggedness and durability in extreme driving conditions, plus impressive towing capability and ride isolation characteristics. Towing capacity is 8,500 pounds. An electro-hydraulic system with four-wheel Active Height Control (AHC) and Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) reacts more quickly and allows for a greater range of adjustment than the system used in the previous LX model.
The front of the LX 570 frame integrates a three-stage crush structure to help reduce frame damage to other areas of the vehicle in a frontal impact. The patented design can disperse collision force from the main side members to floor frame members, helping to minimize deformation in the passenger compartment.
The standard power rear door, Smart Access keyless entry system with push-button start, headlamp washers and a front windshield wiper de-icer provide all-weather convenience. The full array of standard luxury amenities includes leather-trimmed upholstery, four-zone independent climate control, a voice-activated Hard Disc Drive (HDD) navigation system with Bluetooth® capability, a nine-speaker Lexus Premium Audio system, front-seat power-seat cushion extenders, and much more including a rear back-up camera. Standard XM® Satellite Radio capability (requires subscription) includes XM NavTraffic, a real-time traffic information service designed to provide driver alerts for accidents, road closings and traffic jams.
In addition to the new Luxury Package, the LX 570’s option list includes climate-controlled front seats and heated second-row seats, and entertainment systems. The available rear-seat entertainment system plays DVDs and uses a nine-inch wide-format screen. The available 19-speaker Mark Levinson® Reference Surround Sound audio system is capable of storing up to 2,000 digital songs on a portion of the navigation system’s HDD (hard disk drive).
The LX 570 luxury utility vehicle adopts characteristics of the brand’s L-finesse design theme. A wide stance and muscular cabin proportions are accented with subtle character lines and luxury touches such as chrome-plated door handles and moldings. The wide grille, with its “arrowhead” corner treatment, character lines integrated into the bumper, and large projector headlights convey a distinctly purposeful look. Pronounced wheel arches add an element of ruggedness to the elegant profile. Standard running boards fit closely to the body for an integrated appearance.
The new-generation LX 570, while occupying the same footprint as the previous LX 470 model, provides best-in-class front seat legroom. The result is an even more inviting and comfortable space for up to eight passengers and their cargo. Optitron® instrument gauges are a traditional and functional Lexus design feature. The first-in-class standard power-sliding second-row seat slides forward and aft 4.1 inches for passenger comfort and cargo storage versatility. The second-row seatbacks provide a convenient 40/20/40 split. The second row seat is specially engineered to make tumbling it forward easy for anyone – with Lexus fluid smoothness. A power retractable third-row seat is standard. The split rear tailgate features a power upper door, while the bottom section raises and lowers with minimal effort.
All new Lexus vehicles come with a 48-month/50,000-mile basic limited warranty with roadside assistance for 48-months/unlimited miles. Powertrain and restraint system coverage is provided for 72 months/70,000 miles. Corrosion perforation protection is covered for 72 months, regardless of mileage.
