About Lexus LX

The 2016 Lexus LX 570 is one of those rare luxury SUV models that's actually capable of going off road…far off road. Based on the ultra-stout and ultra-capable Toyota Land Cruiser, the full-size LX 570 SUV offers a heaping extra layer of style, sophistication, features and luxury. It's as rugged as it is refined, with a sophisticated terrain-response system allowing it to traverse almost any obstacle. Of course, the reality is that few 2016 LX 570 SUVs will ever go off road, with the possible exception of venturing down a rutted horse trail, utilizing its 7,000-pound tow rating. Like the Land Rover Range Rover, the LX 570 luxury SUV isn't cheap to purchase or operate, thanks to fuel economy in the teens.

In the wake of concerns over unintended acceleration in Toyota and Lexus vehicles, the 2011 LX 570 now comes with a brake override system as standard equipment. Lexus calls its system Smart Stop Technology and, under certain conditions, if both the accelerator and the brake are depressed at the same time the vehicle will automatically cut power to the engine to reduce the likelihood of an accident. There are also some changes to the optional Luxury Package and some new interior colors.

"Traded a 530I for it to have something comfortable to ride in. It delivers! Only drawback is, it needs feeding on a very regular basis. Super good electronics and other goodies. Highly recommended!!"

"Just traded my 2007 GX 470 for the 2009 LX 570. What a SUV!! Do not get me wrong, the GX is a great SUV(better than even the Lincoln Navigator) but my what a difference. I was reluctant at first because of the cost. I am so glad I decided on the new LX 570. Sorry for the Cadillac Esclade and Navigator. They just do not have what it takes. I owned a Navigator so I know the difference!! The LX 570 has everything a person could want and more!!! The features and ride are magnificent!!! Get one!!"
