New 2017 Lexus LX 570 – Release Date, Specs & Info

2017 Lexus LX 570 Review

Although the new 2017 Lexus LX 570 offers a seating capacity of up to eight passengers, abundant standard and luxury features, smooth ride, advanced off-road capabilities, and strong brakes, it suffers from an aging interior design, cramped third-row seat, and mediocre fuel economy ratings. Its release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.

The new 2017 Lexus LX 570 is just among the very few adept vehicles that are capable of tackling everything Mother Nature offers. The Lexus LX was conceptualized almost three decades ago as a counter to the Toyota Land Cruiser. The same holds true for the modern LX 570, but the problem nowadays is that not many shoppers are interested in hard-core ruggedness any more.

For 2017, Lexus has made a spirited effort in trying to salvage the LX 570 image by combining a slew of latest safety features, modern interior and exterior refinement, with serious off-roading capability to give an excellent SUV that can virtually offer optimum performance regardless of whether it is on asphalt or dirt.

It still shares a lot with the Land Cruiser on which it is based. Such as the serious off-roading capability and the sheer size. On the downside, though, the redesigned LX 570 still offers a cramped third row seat that is only suitable for elementary school going children. Other sons to expect from the 570 include a dated cabin that lacks a modern refinement. The price tag is rather high relative to what its competition offers while the 0-60 mph acceleration is sluggish.

Even as the LX 570 tries to catch up with modern times, it will still find it’s illustrious past a pipe dream in the modern era. Some of the rivals to consider here include the “A” rated Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. It offers anything from a considerable base price, quicker acceleration, spacious third-row seating to cutting-edge technologies.

2017 Lexus LX 570 Engine Specs & Fuel Economy

Enthusiasm for the 2017 Lexus LX 570 is derived from the 5.7L juggernaut engine that is capable of churning out a whopping 383 horsepower and 403 lbs. ft. of torque. This power is then taken to the all-wheel drive via the eight-speed automatic transmission system.

Other systems include driver selectable multi-terrain system, hill start assist, and crawl control. The console-mounted dial also comes with a new Drive Mode Select system that enables drivers to specify either the suspension configurations or certain powertrains.

A maximum towing capacity of about 7,000 lbs. should be expected for the LX model.

When we come to the fuel economy, we should expect the LX 570 to return 13/18/15 mpg, according to EPA ratings.
