2019 Lexus LX 570 Crafted To Command
At the TXMPA Off-road Invitational, a whole fleet of various vehicles from different manufacturers was offered to us for the ultimate test drive. One SUV in particular I looked forward to jumping behind the wheel of was the 2019 Lexus LX 570. The many courses offered at General Sam’s Off-road Park in Huntsville gave us the ideal terrain to test the LX 570’s capabilities. The main course I drove on had many challenges, especially with the amount of rain that poured down on us during this two-day event. From crawling out of muddy craters to climbing up hills, this luxury SUV was able to tackle everything in its way with ease. The full-time four-wheel drive system with a TORSEN limited-slip center differential and manual-locking was a much-needed feature for this course. Another great feature I loved using was the under vehicle camera that showed not just what was up ahead but also what the front of the vehicle was approaching so you were never surprised at the obstacle ahead.
If you are looking for a SUV associated with outdoor recreation and off-road that can still be considered luxurious then look no further to the 2019 Lexus LX 570. The newest facelift continues its elegant and sophisticated look with an oversized grill and distinctive redesigned LED headlights. There are two configurations you can choose from, a two-row version that seats 5 and offers the most cargo space or a three-row version that seats 8.
The 5.7-liter v8 with 383 horsepower and 403 lbs. of torque is partnered with an eight-speed sequential-shift automatic transmission and has a towing capacity of 7,000 lbs. You are ready to tackle off-road challenges with its full-time four-wheel drive, height adjustable suspension and advanced system features like crawl control and multi-terrain select. The LX 570 also offers a bird’s eye view of the vehicles surrounding for added safety and peace of mind.
The interior features modern artisan crafted wood trim and a self-monitoring heated wood and leather-trimmed steering wheel. The seats are extremely soft with a high grade semi-aniline perforated leather. It is equipped with a 14-way driver and 12-way front passenger power adjustable seats. The rear has customizable seating and storage that is versatile and features power sliding 60/40 second-row seat with a 40/20/40 split setback. A 50/50 split third-row seat is added to the three-row version. Throughout the cabin, there is four-zone climate control with 28 vents and heated and ventilated seats. There is also a cool box to keep your beverages chilled.
The 2019 Lexus LX 570 takes an already luxurious platform and elevates it to world-class status. With an MSRP of $86,080.00, it is sure to stand out for its luxury accommodation and off-road proficiency.
