The 2015 Lexus LX 570 combines the much needed interior comfort, the necessary fuel economy and the highly demanded off-road capability. Though the 2015 model will not see many changes from its preceding 2014 model which brought modernization to this type of automobile, a little high grade improvements will be seen in both the interior and exterior to result in a sleek and classy looking eight-seat SUV.
Powered by a v8 5.7 liter engine, the 2015 Lexus LX 570 will run at a high power of 383 horsepower and produce 403 lb/ft of torque. This engine will be accompanied by a four-wheel drive system and six-speed automatic transmission. It will be able to perform greatly not only off-road but also on the road. Its weight (2680kgs) and size (197” by 78” by 76”) however limit the automobile’s capability to maneuver through winding roads.
One of the biggest problems with this car is its mileage. Since weight and power will remain on the same level and no revolutionary tech will be included this will not change and again it will be able to return 12/17 mpg in city/highway. Another concern that has been expressed by critics and it seems that Lexus is not currently able to solve this “problem”. When taken into account power, luxury and weight it is quite obvious that higher fuel consumption is something to expect.
2015 Lexus LX 570 Redesign
The interior of the cabin is designed to provide maximum comfort to all its occupants. The technology levels are a notch higher including an advanced connectivity system. A Pandora system (Lexus Enform6) is present to which mobile apps can be connected to the infotainment system. There are also both rear and front cameras to ease turning, parking and other necessary movement. The rear seats entertainment system is personalized and everyone can do whatever they enjoy doing without compromising the comfort of the person seated next. As for the driver, this SUV allows you to control the infotainment system eye-free using iPhone’s Siri for voice commands.
The safety of all passengers in the car is also given much importance. This car incorporates several pieces of standard safety equipment but that is not all. There are many additional safety features including the pre-collision system. The five-mode terrain control system helps the driver to control traction depending on the surface. With a towing capacity of 7,000 pounds, the next generation LX 570 will be very helpful in transportation of goods. The trunk capacity of 16 to 83 square feet is also ideal for weekend outings with family among other needs that may require huge capacity for transportation.
Though there has not been any official communication from Lexus, the release of the 2015 Lexus LX 570 is expected to be in early 2015. We do expect this to happen simply because almost all details are already known and there is no reason for this car maker to further delay the delivery.
Price Of 2015 Lexus LX 570
As for the price, it is expected that this car will be priced at a little over $90,000. This is quite pricy in its class but the car is expected to live up to its promises and provide quality for its value. There are few other options on the luxury eight passenger SUV market but Lexus comes as one of the best options just as always.
