Even though that the LX 570’s development began in the first half of the nineties, it was available on the market in 1995, as the 1996 model, while in Canada, the first vehicle was available a year after. All generations returned decent amount of success and it is time for the 2016 Lexus LX 570 to take over with more than a few changes.
At the start, this car was almost the same as the Toyota Land Cruiser, with the exception of the redesigned interior that came equipped with more luxury highlights than the interior seen in its popular SUV relative. The latest generation of Lexus LX570 came out in 2007 after which we were able to see a redesigned model offered for 2013th year. Now it is globally available, and it is offered as a luxury crossover, even though it is basically a real SUV. With new model things are not changing drastically and we are again getting one big and capable vehicle.
As far as the exterior of the this SUV is concerned, it comes with very off-road like outside appearance, that has recently been fitted with a new spindle grille, together with some other Lexus SUVs and crossovers, which is kind of a designer mistake, since the general opinion is that this kind of grille goes much better with Lexus’s sedan cars, and placing it on an SUV of this size, just doesn’t seem right. But, the Lexus Company doesn’t seem to care much about that. Other than that, the overall exterior appearance will come with much more aggressive looks and various improvements.
When taking a look at the inside of the vehicle, you will see that the new model comes with almost all hi-tech features that you can wish for. In the back rows, the passengers can enjoy the ride and get entertained during long rides with dual screen entertainment, and wireless headphones. The interior is also equipped with leather upholstery, heated and ventilated seats, 19 speaker sound system, Enform connectivity and infotainment system and much more. When taking into consideration all these luxury features and equipment that this model offers, we think that the 2016 Lexus LX 570 will satisfy most of the drivers as well as the passengers.
When it comes to the engine, since the current model is the number 1 off-road car of the whole Lexus lineup, we think the changes that concern the engine department, are going to be minimal. The base version of new LX 570 comes with the 5.7 l V8 that is capable of delivering 383 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque, and it is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This model is also equipped with various safety features that make the ride more comfortable, but still, the handling is a little tricky and definitely not smooth. In the basic package, Lexus offers Crawl Control that improves the low speed maneuvers.
Reports suggest that not all markets will get the same engine at least not of the same output. For some markets this unit will produce 362 hp and 530 NM of torque which are still respectable figures. With this unit the large vehicle like this can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in about 7.8 seconds which represents good result when taken into consideration that this is one very big vehicle.
2016 Lexus LX 570 Price
The price of the 2016 Lexus LX 570 is not expected to change by much, it will probably increase for just a little. The current model has a price of around $83,000, which is the same as the price of the Toyota Land Cruiser, with the addition of the Lexus luxury features. Base price could go up for few thousand $ but not much more. The release date hasn’t been confirmed yet, but the predictions are that this model is going to hit the market in the beginning of the 2016, while the unveiling is expected at the end of this year.
