2020 Lexus LX 570 Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide


CARHP Editorial Updated on: November 28, 2019


There are only a few SUVs in the market that can take you to some of the remotest locations, and that too in an extremely comfortable and luxury ambience. The Lexus LX 570 is one of them. It was back in 2008, when the LX got a major overhaul that marked the beginning of its third generation, since then the Lexus has been in the same generation. However, in the meanwhile Lexus has updated its flagship SUV with significant changes, increasing its overall appeal.

The 2020 Lexus LX 570 is out in the market now with the previous year model being carried forward to 2020, without any major changes. The only change in its 2020 line-up is the addition of some more features in the options list for the two-row trim that was introduced last year.

Overall Rating


At $86,230, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 completely justifies its price statement and stands strong in a league that is also shared by the Range Rover, Lincoln Navigator, Mercedes- Benz GLS 450 and Infiniti QX80. The way in which this flagship SUV amalgamates premiumness and capability, is something which is distictly specific to Toyota and Lexus. Sharing its technology and architecture with the almighty Toyota Land Cruiser, it gets all the off- roading potent of Toyota's big boy along with the exquisitely crafted premium build quality in the interiors coming from Lexus.

Not only the architecture, the LX also shares the powerful V8 with the Land Cruiser. The engine is powerful enough with plenty of torque and also provides an impressive towing capacity. However, even with all the bells and whistles along with the strong personality, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 disappoints with its unintuitive infotainmnet interface, low fuel economy and a bit tightly packed interiors.

We Recommend

There’s not many offerings in terms of trim levels. It depends on your needs whether you need a two-row version or 3-row version model. IF you opt for the two-row trim, you’ll get larger cargo area for sure. If you are choosing the three-row LX 570, we would suggest avoiding rear-seat entertainment system as the screen prevents the seconds-row seats from sliding.

2020 Lexus LX 570 Engine and Performance

7.5/10
“The 2020 Lexus LX 570 isn't as fast or agile as many of its rivals. It also gets poor gas mileage, even for this class. Still, its engine delivers plenty of power, and few other large SUVs can match the LX’s off-road ability.”- cars.usnews

Engine and Transmission

The LX 570 SUV is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine that churns out 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft. of torque. The engine is pretty refines and fun to drive. It feels like driving the Toyota Land Cruiser at times. Since the Land Cruiser host the same V8 engine, tuned to deliver marginally less power at 381 hp. The Infiniti QX80 delivers the maximum power of 400 hp while the Lincoln Navigator delivers 450 hp with the help of 3.0L V6 engine.

Acceleration

The SUV takes 7.3 seconds to sprint zero to 60 mph. This makes it one the slowest SUVs among the peers in terms of acceleration. The rivals score acceleration time less than 7 seconds. With such heavy exterior build and engine, it is obvious that the SUV might take some time to get into the real speed.

 Braking and Handling

The LX 570 remains underpowered in terms of braking and handling. The SUV takes 123 feet to come down to halt from a speed of 60 mph. The GLS 450 does the same at 120 feet. The heavy steering impacts the handling severely.

Although, the case is not same always as the SUV is loaded with lot of features that enhance the ride quality. The crawl control with turn assist triggers the off-roading capability across uneven terrain and limits the turning radius by applying maximum brake force around rear wheels.

2020 Lexus LX 570 Fuel Economy

The fuel economy returned by the Lexus LX 570 is really disappointing. No worries, what can one expect from an SUV of big size. It returns 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. Mercedes GLS 450 and Land Rover Range Rover offer a bit better fuel economy. One has to compromise fuel economy over power output. The unmatched power delivery from the Lexus is the sole reason for such fuel economy.

2020 Lexus LX 570 Interior

7.0/10
“The Remote Touch interface makes it hard to make certain audio, navigation and climate adjustments. But there's a ton of room, and the large door openings, handholds, and wide running boards help people climb in and out.” - Edmunds

Seating and Comfort

The Lexus SUV is ultimately cozy and comfortable in both front and rear seating. Both the row are accompanied with ample bolstering. The quality of leather stitching is premium and the wooden material adds more luxury to the interior. The second row is fitted with electronically adjustable seats that help in making extra room for the third-row passengers. However, the third-row is too short for adult passengers.

In comparison to the competitors, the Lincoln Navigator offers better interior seating ad space but the Navigator holds accommodation for seven passengers while the Lexus offers accommodation for 8 passengers.

  • Siri Eyes Free for hands-free calling and messaging
  • Lexus Enform Remote to remotely access the car

The LX 570 has a limited cargo capacity. It is quite disappointing to find small cargo space in an SUV of this size. It offers 15.5 cubic feet behind the third row and 41.0 cubic feet (After folding third row seat). However, the SUV manages to offer 83.1 cubic feet space behind the first row seat.

2020 Lexus LX 570 Exterior

“The 2020 LX 570 looks much the same as last year, with LED headlights and a huge spindle grille that immediately identifies this large SUV as a Lexus. The rest of the LX 570 is classic Land Cruiser; in other words, it’s a tall and imposing box.” – Kelley Blue Book

Dimension and Weight
