2011 Lexus LX570 Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, There are some minor changes for the 2011 Lexus LS. There is a new black interior with leather trim. A heated steering wheel option has been added to the Luxury Package, which includes semi-aniline leather interior with Bubinga wood trim and a cool box for drinks. The LX receives a brake override system, too. Other than that, the color Costa Azul has been discontinued. The LX 450 by Lexus was launched in 1996. It’s an SUV made to be a competitor with the Land Cruiser by Toyota. The LX 450 is a full-size, body on frame SUV that has had several improvements. Two years following its launch it was renamed the LX 470. In addition, the LX 470 got a total redesign in 2008. SUV consumers were more than satisfied with implemented changes.
The LX 570 SUV has plenty of gadgets too. It is a dependable offering for off road excursions. Any consumer seeking an ordinary vehicle for every day driving will appreciate it too; it has plenty of amenities including things like a Mark Levinson-19 speaker audio system, park assist, and rear seat entertainment features.
The LX 570 SUV seats eight. It has a redesigned exterior/interior. The vehicle proved heavier and bigger. Yet, this three ton vehicle still manages to conquer zero-to-sixty in 6.5 seconds. Under the hood, one will find a 5.7-Liter V-8, 383 horsepower engine married to a six-speed auto tranny. It has solid towing abilities and can tow 8500 pounds.
The new LX looks like a cleaner, smoother version of the previous model — and an awful lot like the Land Cruiser on which it’s based. The LX rolls on 20-inch wheels as standard equipment, and the wheels in the Luxury Package add a Liquid Graphite finish. The commodious, three-row cabin of the Lexus LX has a variety of leather/wood interiors, 14-way driver seat and 12-way front passenger seat, and a 19-speaker surround sound system. The third row power folds out of the way and the second row power slides.
The Lexus LX 570 moves a lot faster than a 6164-pound sport/utility should, going from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds. That the 5.7-liter V-8 has 115 more horsepower than the engine it replaces doesn’t hurt. It also brakes from 60 mph in 133 feet. Handling is not its strong suit, but it is certainly competent in turns.
Dual front airbags, dual front knee airbags, first- and second-row side airbags, and three-row side curtain airbags are standard. The LX also comes standard with disc brakes with ABS, brake assist, electronic brake-force distribution, and stability control.
