2020 Lexus LX 570

2020 Lexus LX 570 is a physically imposing SUV with a dramatic front grille that looks ready to inhale anything in its path. Underneath are the rugged underpinnings of the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser. As a result, this large SUV offers a rare combination of size, comfort and off-road ability.

A 5.7-litre V-8 sends 383 hp to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. That’s enough power to motivate the 6,000-pound beast with more authority than many drivers might expect. Truck chassis helps the LX confidently tow up to 7,000 pounds, though doing so drops fuel economy from atrocious to unbelievable. Few vehicles guzzle at the same rate as the Lexus LX. 

Lexus offers no trim levels and few options, so each LX sold is well appointed. The biggest choice for buyers is whether to opt for two or 3 rows of seats. Inside, the LX 570 is a cruise ship, with real wood, supple cushioning and tight build quality. Its most significant flaw is an outdated infotainment system. The controls are hard to locate, the menu is frustrating, and the joystick is hardly worth using. In a class that emphasizes user experience, the LX is a long way behind.
