Used 2016 Lexus Lx 570 For Sale Near Me

  -  
The number portion of this Lexus’s badge—570—has lớn vì with engine displacement, but the more significant numeral for this behemoth of the Lexus lineup is 6206. That’s the weight in pounds of this poshed-up Toyota Land Cruiser. And while that mô tả tìm kiếm sounds dismissive, the LX570’s posh is very posh indeed—& by far this big bopper’s strongest suit. Other elements of the driving experience—power, towing, dynamic behavior—are not so pleasing.

The fundamentals: As noted, the LX is basically a truông chồng, sharing its frame with the Toyota Tundra and the Lvà Cruiser. The toàn thân is married lớn the frame late in the assembly process. Body-on-frame construction has a reputation for ruggedness ahy vọng off-roaders and truckers; such a structure, generally speaking, has been capable of absorbing more punishment than a unibody, particularly in the trackless outback. This is becoming debatable, as unitoàn thân vehicles have grown stiffer and stronger, but traditionalists hold khổng lồ the principle.

However, body-on-frame vehicles also tkết thúc to lớn be heavier, & the likelihood of any individual LX570 owner taking this rig off the pavement & inlớn the wilds is low. L& Cruisers see a lot of dirty driving, particularly in Africa and the Middle East, but the same can’t be said for their upscale Lexus siblings.

Cogged Up

While this is the heftiest LX we’ve sầu encountered in the model’s eight-year run, it’s mechanically the same as the one we tested in 2008—except that the automatic transmission now offers eight ratgame ios rather than six. This change nets the LX an additional 1 mpg in the EPA đô thị fuel-economy rating at 13, up from 12 mpg, while the highway rating stays at 18 mpg. We recorded 15 mpg of highway-heavy mixed use (including more than 400 miles towing a trailer), which matches the EPA combined rating and is 2 mpg better than in our thử nghiệm of a 2015 Mã Sản Phẩm with the six-tốc độ.

More important, the eight-tốc độ transmission operates seamlessly. It does offer a manual mode, but the responses are rather deliberate và we suspect few if any owners will use it in everyday driving after the first few attempts. In full tự động mode, however, it goes up & down its thực đơn of gears almost imperceptibly, và it is quichồng to lớn drop down two or even three cogs when the driver signals a need for haste with a hard stab on the throttle.

Then again, haste should be regarded as a relative term. Although the LX has become more corpulent since our 2008 chạy thử, there has been no corresponding increase in the means lớn propel all that mass. It employs the same naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V-8 that powers the L& Cruiser, producing 383 horsepower & 403 lb-ft of torque.


Those would be pretty stout numbers in a lighter vehicle. But in a three-tonner, that output verges on ho-hum, upstaged by engines offered in competing luxo-utes. When the light turns green, the năm 2016 LX can rumble to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 15.5 seconds.

Although that’s 0.5 second slower to lớn 60 mph than the 2008 demo vehicle, it’s not exactly glacial. But it’s upstaged by pretty much everything in this class: The Cadillac Escalade hustles to lớn 60 in just 5.6 seconds, the Lincoln Navigator in 6.2, và the Mercedes-Benz GL450 in 5.9. It’s worth noting that the Mercedes (renamed & updated as the GLS for 2017) achieved that sprint with 362 horsepower, thanks to lớn weighing 601 pounds less than the Lexus. The Cadillac, the Lincoln, & the Infiniti QX80 (6.5 seconds to lớn 60 mph) also all weigh less than the LX570. There’s a message here.

Still, it can be argued that sprints won’t matter khổng lồ the folks who sign up for this package, which brings 143 cubic feet of passenger volume và seating for eight. So how does the engine vày when towing? Surely some LX owners are given to lớn towing large boats, or perhaps horse trailers lớn and from equestrian events?

Not so fast. The LX is rated to tow up to 7000 pounds. But based on our experience hitching it to lớn about 4600 pounds of trailer & race oto, we’d have khổng lồ say the LX has little enthusiasm for such tasks. Acceleration with the encumbered LX is sluggish compared with competitors, making overtaking on a two-lane highway an activity that requires careful planning.

Its three tons assert themselves in every area of vehicle dynamics. None of these seven- and eight-passenger utes is a ballerimãng cầu, but regardless of which operating mode one selects (there are four, including Sport) the LX operates at the ponderous kết thúc of the class’s narrow spectrum, a trait magnified by power steering with unnaturally high effort, even at parking-lot speeds. Low-tốc độ steering effort is often light và overassisted in big SUVs, but not in this case. Let’s not confuse effort with tactility, which is pretty much absent here.

Braking distance—183 feet from 70 mph—is typical of this segment, five sầu feet better than the Cadillac và four feet longer than the Mercedes. But we also detected moderate fade in repeated hard stops, which isn’t typical.

Sumptuous Interior

What attracts people to lớn the LX is its creamy ride quality (with adaptive sầu suspension), the sublime 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system ($2350), and the luxe interior. There’s also standard leather, premium sound (superseded in this LX by the Levinson option), a choice of four real-wood trims, heated & ventilated front seats, power-adjustable second-row seats, & power-folding third-row seats.

Connectivity & infotainment have sầu been upgraded periodically over the LX570’s extended life cycle. The ute now features a big (12.3-inch) center touchscreen, navigation with voice commvà, Công nghệ Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, và the Lexus Enkhung App Suite. Driver-assisting công nghệ includes adaptive sầu cruise control with automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, a 360-degree surround-view camera, a head-up display, & park assist. These are also available on the Land Cruiser, though, which weighs 280 pounds less và is rated lớn tow 8100 pounds.


Our chạy thử truông xã included a dual-screen DVD rear-seat entertainment system ($2005), always a good bet for family peacekeeping on long trips. One caveat applies: Rather than being flush-mounted, the DVD screens protrude from the front seatbacks, making it awkward to lớn fold the center seats for maximum cargo capathành phố.

The exterior has been revised front và rear, most visibly with the addition of an even bigger rendition of the Lexus spindle grille that, whatever you think of it aesthetically, gives the LX an unmistakable curbside presence. We think it now makes the LX look lượt thích a corpulent Cylon.


The lakiểm tra freshening gives the LX an interior that rivals the top players in the class. But the enhancements can’t entirely disguise that they’re largely just tacked-on features, struggling to keep this aged entry competitive sầu in the full-size luxury-SUV derby with fresher contenders. The new eight-tốc độ transmission helps, but the engine is on the tepid side for duty in a three-ton ute. Competing SUVs variously enjoy a weight advantage, pack more standard punch, or offer other engine options, including diesels. And most are rated to lớn tow more. None of this keeps Lexus from demanding a premium price. The LX’s ambitious MSRP ladder starts where the Lvà Cruiser và many key competitors leave off, up where alternatives start khổng lồ include the L& Rover Range Rover.

Last year Lexus sold just 3884 LX570s in the United States, down 168 from 2014. (Lvà Cruiser sales were even lower at 2687.) Cadillac sold 21,230 Escalades—and nearly another 15,000 of the extended ESV version with interior volume rivaling the LX570’s—while L& Rover found buyers for nearly 18,000 Range Rovers. In 2008, we observed that, despite its high price and ponderous dynamics, owners still swear by their LX570s. Will this refresh keep those loyalists happy?

The previous-generation L& Cruiser/LX570 platform stayed in service for a decade, so it could be at least two more years before we see an all-new one. Toyota almost certainly will develop a new Lvà Cruiser because of global dem& for its combination of size và all-terrain capability, but we have lớn wonder about the business case for the incremental sales the Lexus version adds. Perhaps that depends on the profit margins, which must be as hefty as the LX570 itself.
