5 reasons to buy the 2021 Lexus LX 570

1. All-wheel capability 

The 2021 Lexus LX 570 combines the muscular-controlled engine-transmission duo with sophisticated all-wheel drive and suspension systems. Beyond city and highway handling, the LX 570 shines once you leave the pavement. Handling perks including crawl control, hill-start assist, multi-terrain select, adaptive variable suspension, and active height control offer a suite of topographical customization to help maintain and optimize traction control.  

2. Hands-off technology 

In the captain's chair of the 2021 LX 570, you'll benefit from a number of intuitive screens to keep you in control of the cabin and driving experience. On the dashboard of the LX 570, there's a 4.2-inch well-equipped information display, and in the center console, there's a massive 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen. Also available is a heads-up display that projects audio, speed, and turn-by-turn navigation directly onto the windshield. Also new for 2021 is Amazon Alexa compatibility. 

3. Full-cabin system 

Lexus engineers had more than the needs of the front two passengers in mind when they designed the LX 570. Backseat passengers are also accounted for if you consider the available 11.6-inch dual-screen entertainment system, which can be paired with a 19-speaker Mark Levinson® sound system. The climate concierge system can automatically monitor and adjust temperatures across four climate zones, so everyone can stay comfortable throughout the cabin. 

4. Interior customization 

The 2021 Lexus LX 570 offers two seating configurations: the traditional three-row, eight-seat design remains, with 42.9 inches of legroom in the front, 34.4 inches in the center, and 28.4 inches in the rear; and the two-row, five-seat setup, if you would rather opt for more ready-to-load cargo space. Either way, both models include power-sliding, 60/40-split second-row seating, while the third row of the eight-passenger LX offers 50/50-split power-folding optionality. 

5. Controlled powertrain  

The engine under the hood of the 2021 Lexus LX 570 is a tried-and-true 5.7L 383-horsepower V8. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, the LX 570's powertrain can produce 403 lb-ft of torque and hit zero-to-60 in 7.2 seconds. The full-sized SUV, which comes standard with a ball hitch, can also tow an estimated 7,000 lbs, when properly equipped.
