    Giving Back

    On Tuesday November 22nd, our Lexus team had the opportunity to truly give back this holiday season. We joined Cityteam as they partnered with the San Jose Earthquakes to feed over 5,000 families in need this Thanksgiving.

    "It was nice to take part of my day to give back to those in need," says Community Relations Manager, Cipriana Huerta. "It's so easy to forget about those around us as we get caught up in our own bubble during the holidays. Every family I met today was so gracious of what they received; its a humbling experience."

    Cityteam offers a variety of resources to meet the needs and to provide real help and hope for those in our community struggling with poverty, homelessness, and addiction. Cityteam San Jose helps individuals and families improve their lives mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The meals distributed Tuesday was just one way Cityteam helps our community. Once again, we were honored to have the opportunity to participate! #LexusCARes #CityteamSanJose

    REVIEW: 2017 Lexus LX 570

    In the grand scheme of luxury SUVs, it's easy to find one that looks great, performs like a beast, and is so comfortable you could live in it. But how many of these so-called utility vehicles can handle rough terrain? Not many.

    Enter the 2017 Lexus LX 570, which is as comfortable as it is beautiful and doesn’t mind getting its wheels dirty. Read on to find out why San Jose drivers love this luxury SUV:

    INTERIOR

    The LX 570 accommodates seven passengers and has three rows of leather-lined seating, not to mention best-in-class configurability. The second and third rows fold down for additional cargo space in the already roomy SUV, and they also fold to the sides with a power-operated mechanism, creating a flat floor behind the second seats – an ability matched by no other car in its class. It also has a wide center stack for ultimate visibility, particularly when checking the premium navigation and entertainment display.

    ENGINE

    The LX 570 is an SUV that's not all talk, with a 5.7-liter V8 engine with 8-speed automatic transmission, which has 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque. It comes with standard four-wheel drive and can tow up to 7,000 pounds, so winding winter roads will be no problem. Additionally, it has an off-road mode that locks the center differential and engages its low-speed transfer case for when the terrain gets rough.

    FEATURES

    You’ll want comfort and entertainment on your excursions, and the LX 570 has the latest in features. It has standard quad-zone climate control, power moonroof, tilting and telescoping steering wheel, 14-way power driver’s seat, navigation system, infotainment system, 12.3-inch screen, Lexus Remote Touch, a 9-speaker audios system, Bluetooth connectivity, HD radio, USB input, and smartphone connectivity.

    If you’re looking for more, you can add a 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, rear-seat entertainment, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated wood-and-leather steering wheel. Plus, you can personalize your temperature settings and opt for ambient welcome lighting.

    SAFETY

    Traveling with the family makes safety of utmost importance, and Lexus values its drivers, so it includes the most comprehensive safety systems available standard on many of its models, including the LX 570. You'll love the peace of mind that the Lexus Safety System+ provides, with a myriad of active safety systems that bolster the SUV's rigid body design and other passive safety features.

    The LX 570 comes with Lexus Enform Safety Connect, Crawl Control with Turn Assist, Advanced Multi-View Monitor, premium triple-beam LED headlamps, active traction control, advanced braking system, ten airbags, intuitive parking assist, stability control, rain-sensing wipers, and Smart Stop Technology.
