This coming season, the battle of full-size SUVs segment is going to be serious. Various manufacturers are working to improve their existing models, as vehicles that are more versatile are in plan. One example is the new 2020 Lexus LX 570, which will add a two-row version. In addition, a hybrid model is also possible, although it is not confirmed as of yet. The Toyota Land Cruiser will also get a new generation model with the 300 Series, which promises more space in the company for similar future projects.
Meanwhile, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 draws more and more attention and fans, as the whole Lexus SUV lineup is growing. Toyota’s success with the premium segment is a result of discipline, commitment and persistence of both their engineers and designers. The Japanese company is leading in most segments as usual, with their futuristic concepts and enough bravery to test the market. The new changes on the LX will surely stun everyone once more.
What is New for 2020 Lexus LX 570?
The company has not yet revealed any details about their full-size SUV. However, the next generation Land Cruiser will probably affect the 2020 Lexus LX 570 a lot. Lexus had the last facelift in 2015, and while the LX 570 still looks modern, the redesign is set to fix all of the issues and additionally upgrade in favor of aggressiveness. The new grille and headlights will add a sportier vibe, and the rear end could also experience changes. A sport addition of the SUV should not surprise anyone either.
The premium segment generally means a lot of neat features, and the Lexus LX 570 is no exception. The already mentioned two-row version is very spacious, capable of more than 50 cubic feet for cargo. The bigger, three-row model has a total of eight seats, and the second row is power-adjustable, not just the first one. There is a 12-inch screen at the center of the control panel, while you will find wood and leather details and trimmings all around you. The rear-seat infotainment system is another option, as is a 19-speaker audio system. The safety of the interior is on the highest level possible.
Now to the important things. Under the hood, we find a 5.7-liter V8 engine, exactly like the Toyota Land Cruiser. This power plant delivers 383 horsepower and 403-pound-feet of torque, 2 pound-feet more than the LC. Four-wheel drive is optional, again like the Land Cruiser. The LX 570 sports an eight-speed automatic transmission, offering smooth ride and excellent towing capability of 7,000 pounds as highlights. There are also rumors of a diesel engine for the Lexus SUV. The fuel economy is great, with a combined rating of 15 miles per gallon.
One plan for the full-size SUV may be the Hybrid model, which will share the same destiny as the Toyota Land Cruiser. Toyota is very serious about hybridization, as the company made the first mid-size three-row model. The other companies followed in their steps, so the Japanese carmaker now wants to raise the game one more time.
The new 2020 Lexus LX 570 may appear any day now, as nothing is certain. The recent spy photos indicate that the SUV is in its final phases of development. However, some rather heavy camo is hiding most of its body, therefore not providing a sneak peek at the new features. However, some new shapes can be seen. Everything will probably become official in the second or third quarter of the current 2019, with the sales probably starting later, closer to the start of 2020.
Lexus LX 570 Price
The new SUV is going to keep two trim levels, the two and three rows of seats. The good thing is that the redesign is not going to make the 2020 model more expensive than the previous version. The competition is tight, meaning there is no room for a larger price. The prices will start from $85,000, while the third row with all of the necessary additions will be around $5,000 more.
