2021 Lexus LX 570: New additions for 2021, plus is this beast on the way out?

Share

Since the Lexus LX 570’s brand twin, the Toyota Land Cruiser, was discontinued for the US market, we’re thinking 2021 might just be the last model year for this big luxury bruiser. Nevertheless,

Lexus has added a new package and updated front/rear fascias. Having driven this one myself a few months back I was interested to see what publisher, Tim Esterdahl thought about what’s new on the 2021 Lexus LX 570.

The 2021 Lexus LX 570 is one big beastly vehicle

Modeled after the world-famous Land Cruiser, the LX 570 puts the luxury into off-roading. Whether you get the camel-colored interior like the model Esterdahl drove in the video below or the red-and-black interior like the one I drove, you’re in for a treat when you ride in this SUV.

Being a large vehicle there are some things it doesn’t do well, such as take corners quickly or conserve fuel. (14 MPG combined, 12 MPG city and 16 MPG highway) But, the 5.7-liter V-8 engine paired with the 8-speed transmission means you have the power to go just about anywhere, and you can tow up to 7,000 pounds which is pretty impressive for an SUV.

Features such as crawl control, air ride suspension and 21-inch tires make the 2021 Lexus LX 570 a very capable off-road vehicle.

Due to its reliability, the LX 570 is a big seller in some parts of the world even if it’s not super popular here in the US thanks to its starting price of $92,580.

Let’s make that $106,755, shall we?

The addition of the new sport package gives the LX 570 a new grille, more facia on front and back, chrome on mirror caps, 21-inch tires and a black headliner. The new luxury package includes heated seats for the front and second-row, 4-zone climate control plus auto climate control which automatically manages the climate, seat and steering wheel settings for ultimate comfort and convenience.

It’s no secret that Lexus has hit the mark and then some with its interiors. Watch the video below to see what Esterdahl loved about this luxury SUV then let us know in the comments what you think you’d like best, and if you’ll be sad to see this one go.
