The all-new 2019 Lexus LX 570 is almost ready to hit the market and this time it won’t bring any noticeable changes except the new two-row model which will be sold alongside the standard three-row version.
2019 Lexus LX 570 powertrain
The new 2019 Lexus LX 570 will be offered with one engine option as the 2018 model year. It is a 5.7-liter V-8 engine which is able to generate 383 horses and 403 pound-feet of torque. The engine will be mated at an 8-speed automatic transmission and will use a standard full-time all-wheel drive system. Its towing capacity is rated at up to 7,000 pounds. As for the fuel economy, it gets 13 mpg in the city, 18 mpg on the highway, and 15 mpg combined.
Design of exterior and interior
There shouldn’t be any changes in the exterior styling of the newest 2019 Lexus LX 570. It features a true SUV shape; it is boxy, tall, and very eye-catching. The front end is dominated by its familiar large, spindle grille and angular LEED headlamps. The rear-end wears huge, integrated taillights and sporty bumper, and it rides on larger 20-inch wheels.
Speaking of the interior design, the 2019 Lexus LX 570 comes standard with a three-row seating configuration. The seats are upholstered in quality leather. However, this time, the carmaker will offer it as a two-row version as well. The first and the second row of seats are highly comfortable while the third row is tight, even for smaller adults. So, it is the most suitable for children. However, it can be folded out by power assist which moves them to the side of the vehicle. And the result is much-improved cargo space.
On the other hand, for those who don’t need three rows, they can choose the tow-row version which adds more cargo space of 5.8 cubic feet. So, the two-row version provides the room of 50.5 cubes. In the center of the dashboard, there is a large 12.3-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system.
Equipment and safety features of the 2019 Lexus LX 570
The 2019 Lexus LX 570 will come with plenty of standard features. Those will include leather upholstery, quad-zone climate control, power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, 14-way power adjustable driver’s seat, a power moonroof, AM/FM/CD audio system with 9 speakers, Bluetooth, USB port, 20-inch wheels, LED headlamps, keyless ignition, etc. There will also be a 12.3-inch touchscreen for infotainment system and navigation which will also be standard.
On the other hand, the new Lexus will also be offered with a Mark Levinson audio system with 19 speakers and a rear-seat entertainment system with dual 11.2-inch screens. Furthermore, the Luxury package will add 4-zone climate control, semi-aniline leather interior, and heated and ventilated second row of seats.
