The 2019 Lexus LX 570 will finally come completely redesigned, according to the latest reports. This luxury SUV is present on the market for 22 years and it is a luxury version of the iconic Toyota Land Cruiser.
So far, we have seen three generations of it. Just like the current version of the Toyota’s legendary SUV, it is present since 2007. This is a pretty long time if we consider that the competition is much younger. Although the last update was two years ago, it is still an SUV that is more than a decade old.
Latest reports suggest that the new Land Cruiser will finally come next year. This indicates that its luxury version of Lexus will come right after. We expect big changes from the 2019 LX 570, which will probably come somewhere in the second half of next year.
2019 Lexus LX 570 redesign
The will be one of the most anticipated arrivals for the next year. The 2019 Lexus LX 570 is about to come completely new. For this occasion, we expect so many changes. If we consider that the current model is present since 2007, it is for sure that many significant changes will come. First of all, we will see a completely new platform. According to our reliable sources, the company works on a new platform, which will bring many improvements.
The new model will continue in the same truck-based manner, featuring traditional body on frame construction. However, the new architecture will utilize some new lightweight materials and this will surely provide some big weight savings. This won’t be the only benefit of the new platform. We expect to see a ride quality on a completely new level. The 2019 Lexus LX 570 will also come with a completely new styling.
2019 Lexus LX 570 exterior and interior design
The 2019 Lexus LX 570 will definitely get a new look. The current model received an update two years ago. Although it now completely follows the brand’s design language, featuring familiar spindle grille and narrow headlights, it is still more than a decade old SUV. Its boxy shape looks quite out of date, so the new model will definitely bring so much needed refreshment. The new model will come with sharper lines and more sleek profile. Better aerodynamics and sharper lines will definitely provide a significant improvement in terms of styling.
Big changes will come inside too. The new interior design will feature many changes. We will see new materials and a completely new design of the cabin. With the completely new dashboard and plenty of newest technologies, the new model will definitely make a big step forward in terms of comfort and convenience.
2019 Lexus LX 570 Two-Row Version
People usually see full-size SUVs as family cars, so additional seats seem pretty natural. However, this is rather a luxury than a mainstream vehicle, so practicality probably isn’t a primary concern of its drivers. Moreover, these cars are more a matter of prestige. Even if we talk about practicality, there are many people that actually don’t require an additional third row of seating. In many cases, this feature is actually a disturbance, not a benefit, because the additional row of seating drastically decreases overall cargo volume.
So, which are the main characteristics of 2019 Lexus LX 570 Two-Row Version? First of all, the cargo space has been increased to amazing 50.5 cubic inches. Compared to standard three-row version, this is almost 6 cubic feet more. Other practical benefits that you’re going to get from this version are roof rack and rails, which are standard features now. Sounds pretty good for such uninviting name.
In other aspects, 2019 Lexus LX 570 Two-Row Version won’t be different at all compared to base models. It will feature the same look and proportions, and a similar list of standard equipment. Under the hood, you will find a familiar 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine, which delivers 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque. Transmission is an 8-speed automatic, which sends power to all wheels. The same amount of power and other design characteristic guarantee similar numbers in terms of towing capacity, which should go around 7.000 pounds. Fuel economy should remain unchanged. This means that you can count on 13 mpg in urban conditions and around 18 on a highway. Combined, this means around 15 miles per gallon.
Finally, there is a price. Interestingly, this version will be cheaper than a three-row model. It should go around 84/85.000 dollars.
2019 Lexus LX 570 engine
It is still hard to predict exact specs for the 2019 Lexus LX 570, but latest reports suggest that the new model will continue with the same engine. It is a familiar unit that has a displacement of 5.7 liters. This huge V8 unit has a max output of 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque. For this redesign, we expect to see several tweaks.
The new version of this engine should feature more power, but also much better economy and overall efficiency. When it comes to the transmission, we expect to see a familiar 8-speed automatic. It is also worth to mention that this SUV comes in diesel version for some markets.
In countries like Russia, South Africa, India and New Zealand, there is a 4.5-liter V8 Turbodiesel engine in the offer, which is good for 268 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.
2019 Lexus LX 570 release date and price
