    Review: 2018 Lexus LX 570

    As the Lexus flagship SUV, the LX 570 never disappoints. Drivers who want a spacious, luxurious cabin and a capable body-on-frame chassis have a few options, but this is the best one.

    We invite you to take the 2018 Lexus LX 570 for a test drive so you can see for yourself why it’s a best seller in Los Angeles. For more details on California’s favorite luxury SUV, read our full review:

    Performance

    One of the greatest advantages the LX 570 has on the competition is its combination of power and ease of driving, thanks to a three-mode independent suspension and full-time four-wheel drive with Active Traction Control. The Adaptive Variable Suspension system has Active Height Control for off-road recreation, and variable gear-ratio steering helps you maneuver at low speeds and respond quickly at high speeds.

    Under the hood, the Lexus SUV has a 5.7-liter V8 engine that makes 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque, mated to an 8-speed paddle-shift transmission. This power means the LX 570 can tow up to 7,000 pounds, while Trailer Sway Control ensures you get to your destination without a hitch.

    Comfort and Convenience

    Each model of the 2018 Lexus LX is equipped with a power moonroof, heated front seats, leather-trimmed interior, power-adjustable steering column, power-folding 50/50 third-row seats, power rear door, four-zone automatic climate control with air filter and smog sensor, auto-dimming mirrors, and a roof rack with rails. The ute features 14-way power driver’s seat with dual-function lumbar and cushion extender and a 12-way power passenger’s seat with lumbar support. The Lexus Memory System lets you perfect and remember your seat, mirror, and steering column positions.

    Standard equipment also includes a nine-speaker Premium Sound System, Bluetooth tech, a Navigation System with 12.3-inch display, HomeLink universal transceiver, and Lexus Enform Safety Connect, Service Connect, Remote App, and Destination Assist.

    When you add the Luxury Package, you’ll enjoy semi-aniline leather-trimmed interior, heated and ventilated first- and second-row seats, and four-zone Climate Concierge. Individual options include a Rear Seat Entertainment System (with 11.6-inch display, HDMI input, and wireless headphones), color Heads-Up Display, Mark Levinson 19-speaker Surround Sound Audio, Qi-compatible wireless device charger, cool box, and heated wood- and leather-trimmed steering wheel.

    Safety and Tech

    Not to be outdone by rivals, the 2018 LX 570 has class-leading safety technology. It comes standard equipped with the Lexus Safety System+, which includes a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert, and intelligent high beams. All models also have a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Intuitive Parking Assist, Panoramic View and Multi-Terrain Monitors, ten airbags, and Premium Triple-Beam LED headlamps.

    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.
