2011 Lexus LX570 SUV

2011 Lexus LX570 Review

(4 Stars)  Cruiser for well-heeled ranchers

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Its series was first released in 1996; the LX570 is the latest iteration of a finely appointed Toyota Land Cruiser with a Lexus badge. The 570 became available in 2008. It's a large vehicle, weighing in at 6000lbs, though it can tow another 8500lbs with the ability to transport 8 people if they're small enough. . All this mass gets put into motion by a 5.7 liter V8. In Lexus form, this engine makes 383HP and delivers 403fl-lbs. of torque. It sends this power through a 6 speed transmission to 20 inch wheels.

The interior is no bad place to spend some time either. With standard features that include xenon headlights, power lift gate, four zone climate control, and a backup camera. Options aren't lacking either: a 19 speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system, a chilled console bin, built in screens for the rear seat entertainment center, heated and cooled front seats and heated rear seats.

Much of the cost of this vehicle is spent on the sophisticated off road capabilities which may not be put to the test by many of its buyers.
