Lexus has introduced the 2016 LX 570 SUV (facelift) with a host of upgrades and styling changes.
The updated LX 570 gets a new exterior design. The front sports a one-piece spindle grille, which is framed by elegant satin chrome trim. The facelift brings new LED headlamps, stylish foglights and a revamped front bumper also. The rear fascia features new taillights and bumper. Customers will get 20-inch 10-spoke wheels as standard (with an option for 21-inch).
Inside the cabin, there’s a new infotainment system with a 12.3-inch display screen, panoramic sunroof, LED ambient lighting, wireless charging, bigger 11.6-inch displays for the rear-seat entertainment system and a new Heads-up Display (HUD). The upgraded Luxury Package includes ventilated and heated rear seats.
With a seating capacity for up to eight passengers, Lexus has loaded the LX 570 with a plethora of safety features. It comes equipped with ten airbags, the Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Intelligent High Beam (IHB) and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. The towing capacity of the SUV stands at 7,000 lbs (3,175 kg) and it gets support from Crawl Control with Turn Assist, Hill-start Assist Control and Variable Gear Ratio Steering.
The 2016 LX 570 SUV is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces 383 hp and 546 Nm of torque. Lexus claims that 90% of the torque is available from 3,600 rpm. Apart from that, the 6-speed automatic gearbox has been replaced with a more refined 8-speed automatic transmission. Like the outgoing version, the SUV is equipped with the 4WD system. Lexus claims that the LX 570 can sprint from 0 to 60 mph (0-97 km/h) in 7.3 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph).
