The Lexus LX 570 is one of the best luxury utility vehicles from Lexus. This vehicle has been a constant sales achiever since most buyers would purchase the LX 570 due to its exciting and upscale features. However, Lexus was not yet satisfied with what the LX 570 has achieved so far and this encouraged the car maker to subject the model to a number of upgrades. The efforts exerted by Lexus engineers and designers eventually resulted to the production of a more versatile and daring version of the previous year’s model which is currently known as the 2013 Lexus LX 570.
According to Lexus, the LX 570’s features were tuned to meet the expectations of most luxury car buyers as the competition among the luxury utility vehicles intensifies. Lexus engineers and designers started the revision on the exterior design of the LX 570. The vehicle obtained the so-called “spindle style grille” and this has provided the LX 570 with a more attractive appearance. Aside from that, the vehicle is now equipped with a new set of LED daytime running lights, its foglamps’ bezels were larger, the turn signals were integrated on its side mirrors, and its bodyside mouldings were widened.
In addition to those, the LX 570’s rear was also modified. The 2013 Lexus LX 570 obtained a new set of LED taillights, its rear license plate surround was also new, and its bumper protector on the rear was enhanced by the installation of a stainless steel accent piece. Lexus has also implemented a few upgrades on the LX 570’s interior such as the change of instrument panel design, the addition of the dark chrome finish on the vehicle’s instrument panel on the center, and the availability of the Easy Access system on the vehicle.
Under the hood, the 2013 Lexus LX 570 is still powered by the same 5.7-liter V-8 engine that pumps out about 383 horsepower and 403 lb.-ft. of torque. Since the engine used in the previous year’s model was retained, the 2013 Lexus LX 570 is still capable of towing up to 8,500 pounds of load. Its fuel economy ratings are also expected to remain at 12 miles per gallon in the city, 18 miles per gallon on the highway, and 14 miles per gallon combined.
