The new 2015 Lexus LX 570 is a roomy and luxury SUV equipped with plenty multimedia technology. This 8 passenger SUV has plenty of leg- and head-room for all passengers on all three seat rows. Beside its great capability and high-quality materials it comes with small dislikes like bad fuel economy, irremovable third row seating and unhandy handling. The price is like this Toyota luxury SUV – big. The MSRP price starts at $82,930.
2015 Lexus LX 570 review
The 2015 Lexus LX 570 has a classic design like previous LX models. It had a big update for the 2013 model. Then the bigger changes applied on front spindle grille, bumpers, head- and taillights. The new 2015 model is pretty much a carry over from the previous model. It has HID headlights, LED taillights, round LED foglamps, turn signals on side mirrors, rear spoiler, laminated windshield and front door glass, etc. And, it will stay big and roomy like it always was.
Inside the 2015 Lexus LX 570 uses high-quality materials which already functional cabin makes more luxurious. It is equipped with leather upholstery, detailed instrument panel, 12-way power front passenger seat, 14-way power driver seat, easy access system (keyless entry), Lexus memory system for driver’s seat, power folding 3rd row seat, 9” touch display, Bluetooth, navigation system, Boose audio system with 9 speakers, 4 zone climate control.

The new Lexus luxury SUV is also equipped with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC). The 2015 Lexus LX 570 towing capacity is 7,000 pounds. It has full-time 4 wheel drive (4WD) with split 5-spoke, 20-in alloy wheels with Liquid Graphite finish. With its 6,000 lbs of curb weight it has impressive performance. According to Lexus official announcement it sprints from 0-60 mph in 7.5 seconds and it has top speed electronically limited on 137 mph. This size and performance has its consequences – fuel economy.
