The SUVs are ordinarily associated with off-road performance, but things, in reality, are completely distinct. Most of them have to offer nothing more than rocky appearance. What’s more, it is also luxurious. But that doesn’t change the truth that the many areas of this vehicle are completely obsolete, which appears natural, considering that the present generation is on the market since 2008.
Appears like an extended period for the current industry standards. Therefore, many car specialists rely on a soon redesign. However, the new model definitely won’t be ready for the next year. Latest reports suggest we are about to see 2020 Lexus LX 570 without more important changes. So, don’t expect to see it until late 2019.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Overview
Virtually, it is the same design that follows this nameplate for more than a decade. Exactly like its allies, the Land Cruiser and Tundra, this SUV was introduced in 2008. Of course, there have been some upgrades so far. The last one was three years ago, for the 2016-year model. For this occasion, we have observed a lot of interesting changes. Of course, the majority of them were regarding aesthetics. The Lexus LX was accommodated to the brand’s newest design language, famous for its spindle grille design. There have also been some mechanical changes. Just like the Land Cruiser, it obtained a new 8-speed transmission.
Two models have been sharing almost all of their parts. Previous generations also featured the same mechanics. On the other side, each model features its styling and that is the biggest disadvantage of the 2020 Lexus LX 570. To look more exclusive, Toyota engineers designed bumpers which in fact causer reduced approach and departure angles. Therefore we can say this model is still slightly less capable than the mythical Land Cruiser.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Redesign
More, expect no bigger changes. Though there have been a couple of updates so far, the overall cabin design remained practically the same. The 2020 Lexus LX 570 will also come with two variations in the offer, with either two or three rows of seats. In both variants, front seats offer spectacular comfort, service, and overall quality. The next row is also quite broad, while the third one is cramped and certainly cannot accommodate taller passengers. As you might assume, the cargo area is also fairly limited. Still, the good thing is that seats fold to the side, which means you can enjoy a level cargo floor. The general quality is on a fairly high level, though younger opponents offer finer substances and more attractive dashboard design.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Interior Desing and Features
The 2020 Lexus LX 570 will be that we again will not see all those unnecessary gear groups and trim levels. Exactly like the Land Cruiser, this SUV also keeps things fairly simple. There is a single trim level, which comes with a pretty much a complete load of standard equipment. Therefore, the list of standard features is fairly long. Since this is an off-roader, you can trust things like adaptive suspension, crawl control, multi-terrain pick, and hill-assist.
There is also a nice amount of on-road driver aids, such as forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, automatic park system, multi-angle cameras and much more.
On the inside, you may enjoy four-zone climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated seats, sunroof, keyless ignition and entry and a whole lot more. Regardless of the age, this SUV also offers a nice amount of technology goodies, which comprises a 12.3-inch center screen, navigation, Bluetooth, USB ports, 9-speaker sound system and much more.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Engine
Under the hood, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 will continue using a renowned 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine. This unit has existed for years, so it’s no wonder that the fuel economy isn’t spectacular at all. You can count on 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. The specs sheet of this engine shows it can deliver 383 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque. That is two pound-feet more than for LC. Furthermore, a four-wheel drive is an only alternative (like for the Land Cruiser).
The LX 570 pairs the engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Smooth ride and excellent towing capacity are highlights of this drive system. The new LX will have the ability to tow up to 7,000 lbs. Well, the following Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series could find a diesel engine, while there are mentions about such unit for Lexus SUV. Fuel economy is a killer, with joint rating not moving more than 15 mpg.
2020 Lexus LX 570 Release Date and Price
The 2020 Lexus LX 570 should arrive in the last quarter of next year. We do not expect larger changes regarding the price, which now goes around 86.000 dollars.
