The evolution of the Lexus LX 570 is quite impressive. After its introducing in 1996, this model was growing in three different generations with the last one as a J200 model from 2007. Now, the 2019 Lexus LX 570 is coming to the markets again and it brings plenty of innovations.
The biggest change is the withdrawal of the third-row. This full-size luxury SUV is now perfect for families and it comes with comfortable interior and superb driving manners and stability. Fewer seats mean more cargo space, so let’s find out all of the improvements and specs.
2019 Lexus LX 570 holds crisp lines with perfect angles
When it comes to exterior, the removal of the third row had no impact at all. The 2019 Lexus LX 570 will look better than its predecessor, however, the exterior changes are minor. The body styling still holds crisp lines with perfect angles and beautiful creases. Some of the features are looking sharp and futuristic.
The LX 570 SUV takes a bold stance with its large dimensions and the proportions are very muscular. The front end gets new spindle grille with numerous horizontal bars and satin chrome finishes. The protection down below looks polished and clean and higher up triple-beam headlight units are equipped with the LED technology. The hood of the 2019 Lexus LX 570 comes with a muscle line that runs across the whole hood. From the side, the first thing you will spot is a 20-inch alloy wheel with a five-spoke design.
The roofline looks flatter than before, and longer as well. The windows surround and door handles also get some polished metal trim. The rear part adds a roof spoiler and a split tailgate. Taillights are stretched into the rear quarter panels and are incorporated by a single horizontal strip. The roof rack is standard, just like the roof rails, which was optional features before.
2019 Lexus LX 570 interior design and space
As we already wrote, the biggest change for the 2019 Lexus LX 570 is the removal of the third row. Most of the customer’s feedback said that very few of them are really using the third row and would gladly sacrifice that row for a better cargo room. However, here we are, there is no room for eight passengers as before. Now, the 2019 Lexus LX 570 can accommodate up to five persons while the cargo room is raised by 5.8 cubic feet. Its predecessor came with 44.7 cubic feet of cargo area, and the 2019 model offers up to 50.5 cubic feet.
The rear bench comes with a power-slide feature that allows you to move it front and back by up to 3.5 inches. So, there is space for five persons, the seats are very comfortable and are wrapped in leather materials. Furthermore, the three-spoke steering wheel also gets leather treatment and additional wood trim. An analog clock is placed in the dash and it holds a LED indicator and aluminum materials. The driver’s seat is 14-way power adjustable and with the lumbar support.
The front passenger seats on the 2019 Lexus LX 570 is available with a 12-way power system and there is a four-zone automatic climate control. The moonroof provides a perfect ambient lighting for a full pleasure while on the road. The new features are blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, intuitive park assist and panoramic view monitor.
The 12.3-inch infotainment screen is touch-sensitive and it supports latest phone integrations. Moreover, thanks to this screen you can now use climate control, navigation, and audio system with any problems.
2019 Lexus LX 570 engine specs and towing capacity
The upcoming 2019 Lexus LX 570 will use a 5.7-liter V8 engine as the only drivetrain option. This unit is capable of producing 383 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque. This full-size SUV showed some good results when it comes to towing as it can tow up to 7,000 pounds. On top of that, a tow hitch receiver comes as standard even on the base model. A hybrid variant will also happen, but probably in 2020. The V8 engine offers a full-time four-wheel drive system that also holds a Torsen locking system for the higher levels of grip.
Optionally, the driver can lock the differentials manually which comes handy for the off-road adventures. Traction control is optional and the same stands for the Multi-Terrain Select system. That means that the 2019 Lexus LX 570 is an SUV that can be used on all the types of rough terrains such as snow, mud, and sand.
Lexus LX 570 Hybrid model
A Lexus LX Hybrid model is likely to arrive in a two-year time. The hybrid variant will combine the existing 5.7-liter with a single electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack.
There is not much info about this output at the moment, but we can assume that the motor will provide an additional 40 hp. The mileage is expected to be superb, around 200 miles if not even more.
