The upcoming 2020 Lexus LX 570 will arrive with minor updates only. This luxurious SUV is present since 1996 and we saw three generation of this full-size SUV. The 2019 model is already confirmed and the 2020 Lexus LX 570 will bring slightly more innovations. As we know, this SUV will now come with only two rows of seats.
Lexus LX 570 was built on the same structure as Toyota Land Cruiser, however, Lexus’ platform is more luxurious. Thanks to the powerful V8 engine, off-road abilities are astonishing. Furthermore, the interior will get some new technologies but even without them, the cabin is very modern. This full-size SUV offers more cargo space, legroom is better and there is room for five passengers. Hybrid drivetrain will happen as well and it will bring stunning mileage.
2020 Lexus LX 570 exterior looks superb
The arriving model will get certain updates and facelifts. The changes aren’t that significant but have in mind the 2019 model will also get some refinements. Generally, the exterior is very stylish and elegant. Full-size SUV attracts attention with ease, but 2020 Lexus LX570 will raise the bets. New character lines are providing even more modern feeling, the creases are superb and some features are sharper than before. The front end comes with a spindle grille that sports horizontal bars and additional chrome trims.
LED headlights are standard, the hood is muscular and bumper looks amazing. The side profile adds five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels and we like polished metal trims on door handles. Windows surroundings will also get the same treatment and the roofline looks flat. At the back, roof spoiler is a nice piece of styling and the split tailgate is another cool feature.
Furthermore, stretching taillights with the horizontal LED strip are looking gorgeous, especially during the night. Roof rails are standard now and if you want this SUV, you better have a big garage.
2020 Lexus LX 570 interior and cargo space
As we mentioned, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 now comes with two rows. We must credit such a brave move from Toyota, as this model is now turning back to the bigger families. However, this SUV is still a perfect model for smaller families. There is room for five persons, legroom is very ample and the cargo space is generous.
Speculations are saying that some markets could get the 2020 LX 570 with the third-row. However, general feedback was that the third-row is basically not in use at all. With that in mind, eight-passenger configuration is gone but the cargo space is amazing. While the current model comes with 44.7 cubic feet, the 2020 model will get 51.0 cubic feet of space. We like the power rear bench that is sliding back and front.
The comfort is on another level, and there is plenty of leather upholstery inside the cabin. That includes the seats, dashboard and even the steering wheel. On top of that, wood materials are giving a more luxurious feel to the customers and the traditional analog clock will stay intact. Driver’s seat is 14-way power-adjustable and the lumbar support is standard.
Four-zone automatic climate control is available, along with the moonroof that provides more light during the day. The ambient lighting is perfect for the night rides and it looks perfect. An 11.6-inch display is standard and the new 12.3-inch touchscreen will come as an option.
Safety is improved as the 2020 Lexus LX 570 now offers intuitive park assist, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control.
2020 Lexus LX 570 under the hood, transmission, towing capacity
A 5.7-liter V8 will remain the only engine choice under the hood of the 2020 Lexus LX 570. The V8 engine delivers up to 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the high level of torque, this SUV can tow over 7,000.
A full-time four-wheel-drive setup is available, along with the Torsen locking system so the grip is better than ever. Locking differentials can now be locked manually which is a great off-roading option. Furthermore, V8 powertrain comes with the traction control and multi-terrain select system. Thanks to that, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 can tackle all types of tough terrains such as mud, sand or snow.
An 8-speed automatic transmission is the only choice. Fuel economy is rated at 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. With those figures, fuel economy is far from impressive and that’s the part where the hybrid drivetrain kicks in.
2020 Lexus LX 570 hybrid version
The upcoming 2020 Lexus LX 570 Hybrid will arrive in 2020 and it will combine the existing engine with the electric motor. A lithium-ion battery pack is also in the offer and the overall performance will see plenty of improvements.
This full-size SUV will get a boost of 40 horsepower and the number of torques will remain. The most significant improvement is the fuel economy as the Lexus is looking to deliver astonishing mileage.
2020 Lexus LX 570 price and release date
This luxurious full-size SUV 2020 Lexus LX 570 won’t come cheap. The price is starting at around $85,000 and we can expect at least three trim levels.
The 2020 Lexus LX 570 will hit the markets at the beginning of 2020 and that includes the hybrid model. Moreover, this model will hit basically all of the markets around the globe.
