The current generation of this full-size luxury SUV may be old, but still is a hell of a competitor. That’s the main reason why the Japanese manufacturer isn’t rushing with the next generation, despite that the current model has been around for a full 13 years! Simply, the 2021 Lexus LX 570 will continue to do things it does best. Of course, we are talking about class-leading reliability and off-road performances. The next year shouldn’t bring any particular change, thought the small updates in terms of standard equipment are always welcome.
Still, keep in mind that we are talking about a pretty old model, so count on a couple of drawbacks as well. This particularly refers to the engine, which is pretty thirsty. Also, keep in mind that the amount of interior space isn’t at the same level as most competitors, and that is most notable in the third row, thought he cargo area isn’t particularly spacious as well. We expect to see the 2021 Lexus LX 570 sometime late in the year.
2021 Lexus LX 570 Redesign
The aspect of base design characteristics definitely won’t bring any particular change. You may count on a familiar design, which hasn’t change significantly during these 13 years of production. Of course, this doesn’t mean there weren’t some notable updates, particularly in terms of the styling. Several years ago, we have seen a facelift that has brought the styling that characterizes the brand’s latest design language. Of course, we are talking about the well-known spindle grille and those narrow headlights. Mechanically, things haven’t changed drastically, though we have seen some important updates in terms of drivetrain, suspension etc. All in all, the next year shouldn’t bring any particular novelty. The best we could see are some smaller updates, such as new color options, though even such novelties don’t seem very likely.
The same thing goes for the interior design, which has also received a notable update some time ago. The overall impression of this cabin is really amazing. It’s not hard to notice that the overall quality and craftsmanship is at an impressive level. Hi-end materials are all over the cabin, while the classical aesthetical approach to the dashboard prevents this model from again. All in all, the cabin looks impressive, though some younger rivals look more up to date.
On the other side, the 2021 Lexus LX 570 won’t be as spacious as some rivals. With a little bit over 112 inches in the wheelbase, you can’t count on some spectacular amount of interior space. This is particularly noticeable in the third row, which is pretty tight. The same thing goes for the cargo volume. You may count on 16.3 cubic feet behind the third row, 41.6 cubic feet with the third row folded down, and 81.3 cubic feet of the overall cargo volume. Most rivals are more generous in this aspect.
When it comes to the standard equipment, the area where this SUV really shines in safety. The list of standard safety features includes things like a surround-view parking camera system, front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking. Additionally, you can get a head-up display.
When it comes to tech goodies, all models come standard with a 12.3-inch display, Lexus’ Remote Touch controller, navigation, a nine-speaker audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, USB ports, moonroof, quad-zone automatic climate control etc. Additionally, you can get things like a 19-speaker premium audio system, rear-seat entertainment system, wireless charging and more.
2021 Lexus LX 570 Engine
Things under the hood will definitely remain untouched. The 2021 Lexus LX 570 will carry on with a well-known 5.7-liter V8, which is good for about 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque and comes in pair with 8-speed automatic transmission. The SUV moves with ease and dynamics are more than good. Also, the thing we like is that this is arguably the most reliable engine in the class. Moreover, the entire LX SUV, along with the Land Cruiser, features the highest predicted reliability ratings.
On the other side, a big drawback of this SUV is fuel economy. With this engine, you may count on 13 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway, which are the lowest ratings in the class.
2021 Lexus LX 570 Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Lexus LX 570 in a typical time of year, considering that there are no bigger changes to comes. This also means we should expect the same price tag, which currently starts at around 86.500 dollars.
