THE 2013 LEXUS LX 570 REVIEW

Summary Review by Tess: Off-Road Luxury at a Price

With a number of cosmetic updates for the new model year, the 2013 Lexus LX 570 SUV continues to impress with its combination of rugged off-road capability and luxurious standard features.

New exterior flairs include integrated turn signals in the side mirrors, daytime running LED lights, and updated front grille. The LX 570 also includes a new Easy Access system that automatically moves the steering wheel and driver#8217;s seat to allow easier entry and exit from the vehicle. Overall, the Lexus LX 570 SUV maintains its solid reputation for off-road capability and luxury for the 2013 model year.

Under the hood

The 2013 Lexus LX 570 SUV features a massive 5.7-liter V8 engine. This powerhouse engine delivers 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque, enough to take the LX 570 SUV from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 7.4 seconds. Towing capacity is 7,000 pounds when properly equipped. Four-wheel drive is standard and is paired with a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Fuel economy is below average at just 12 miles to the gallon in the city and 17 in highway driving.

Safety features include ten separate air bags, antilock brakes, emergency braking assistance, electronic braking distribution, and stability and traction controls. A rearview camera is also available for added safety when parking or backing the vehicle.

Inside the cabin

Along with the previously mentioned Easy Access system, the 2013 Lexus LX 570 offers a number of other luxurious features including four-zone climate control, power-adjustable front seats, sunroof, heated front seats, navigation system with real-time weather and traffic updates, and leather seats. The base model features a six-CD changer stereo system with iPod, USB, Bluetooth, and auxiliary interfaces for added choice in entertainment and communication. Options include heated back-row seating and a rear-seat entertainment center.

On the road

Despite its weight, the 2013 Lexus LX 570 SUV offers above average accelerating power. Steering and handling are responsive, and the LX 570 is rugged and durable enough to stand up to even the toughest tasks. On the inside, however, passengers and driver enjoy a quiet, refined ride worthy of a top-end luxury vehicle.

Conclusions

Buyers will pay a premium price for the newly updated 2013 Lexus LX 570 SUV, but that price is largely justified by its exceptional combination of off-road capability and top-end luxury. For its target audience, the 2013 Lexus LX 570 delivers outstanding flexibility and offers drivers the best of two very different worlds.
