The 2008 Lexus LX 570 is a brawny, big and capable SUV with excellent hauling and towing capabilities and plenty of off-road prowess - perhaps not for extreme off-roading, but definitely fine in snow, rain, rocky roads and mud. This four door, eight passenger SUV combines heaviness and sturdiness – the most capable vehicle Lexus offers – with luxurious appointments. Inside, the cabin boasts dual zone auto climate control, cruise, full power controls, navigation, heated memory lumbar seats, an adjustable steering wheel with audio controls and AM/FM/CD/Satellite.Read more Read less
The LX 570 is a completely new model for 2008, replacing the previous LX 470 model in the Lexus lineup. The eight-passenger LX 570, which is based on the new, recently redesigned Toyota Land Cruiser, is about the same size as the outgoing model yet has improved on- and off-road performance, upgraded towing ability, and new top-technology features.
Towing ability; ruggedness; high-tech off-road aids, luxury features and conveniences; safety features; ride comfort; interior space.
The 2008 Lexus LX 570 truly offers the best of both worlds, coupling a smooth ride and decent handling on the road with impressive off-road ability. The new V8 finally has enough punch to deal with towing and hilly terrain. Its interior packaging is also much improved and more useful than the previous LX and other truck-based SUVs, while its myriad safety features and electronic aids help you get through the tough stuff and make it home safe. From the aspect of value, the LX 570 comes with more equipment than the nearly identical Toyota Land Cruiser and includes one other important thing that isn't on the features list--the excellent service of a Lexus dealership.
