Now entering its third generation. Lexus revised the entire vehicle and changed the badge from LX 470 to LX 570. With a fresh approach, it started to look distinctly different from its Toyota brother. Now rolling on 20-inch rims as standard basic features included navigation, cruise control, sunroof, dual-screen rear entertainment system, cool box, cooled front seats, multi offroad selector and more. Regarding safety parking sensors, 360-degree camera, blind spot detection mirrors, airbags and ABS all slowly became standard as the years went by.
This generation also introduced us to the Titanium, Sport Platinum Plus and Supercharger models, all of which have distinct markings to their exterior and minor interior changes to give consumers a wider variety.
The latest re-imaging of the LX 570 came with 2016 models, a massive front grille was added with pincer-like LED lights attached to the front, while round the back new LED rear taillamps were added for smarter look and it even includes Audi style indicators. Now riding on 21-inch rims as standard along with a cool box (finally) a few other extras were added to base models as were a multitude of colours.
All the options from previous models became standard too along with additional safety features such as brake assist, lane departure assist, adaptive cruise control, rear cross traffic alert and more are available as extras.
Four V8 engines are available with various displacements with the highest being the 5.7-litre mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and generating 362 horsepower. In other parts of the world, 4.7, 4.6 and 4.5-litre displacements are on offer and mated to either an 8-speed or 6-speed automatic transmission.
LX 570 models are available as 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 models.
