The upcoming 2019 Lexus LX 570 is a prime example of how it is possible to combine the ruggedness of traditional SUVs with the luxury feel of sedans. This luxury SUV is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser and it possesses everything that every luxury SUV needs to possess and then some. From a powerful V-8 engine to fine leather upholstery and a plethora of safety features, the LX 570 has it all. This is a very capable vehicle, that can easily accommodate up to 7 people and conquer the harshest of terrains. With the 2019 edition, the Lexus wants to send a clear message about its intentions to remain at the top of the luxury SUV market.
2019 Lexus LX 570 – Aggressive-looking Spindle Grille
The most obvious exterior feature of the 2019 Lexus LX 570 will, undoubtedly, be its size. It will be absolutely massive, even bigger than the current model. However, it will still preserve that traditional Land Cruiser design language. This means we will once again see an imposing, blocky and tall vehicle. But, the 2019 Lexus LX 570 is expected to receive a number of changes, that will further emphasize its ruggedness and add a bit of aggressiveness too. For starters, we will see an enlarged and slightly more aggressive-looking spindle grille. The SUV’s body itself will be longer, which will ensure more interior space. The headlights and taillights will be slightly redesigned, which will make them look more sleek and aggressive. In addition, we shall also see plenty of chrome accents on the grille and the door handles, as well as a new clamshell tailgate.
Inside, the 2019 Lexus LX 570 will offer the luxury of a sedan and the available space of a mini van. It will feature a 3-row seat configuration that will have no problems accommodating 7 adult passengers. Aside from offering an abundance of legroom, headroom and cargo space, the LX’s cabin will also offer lots of comforts too. This will be mostly thanks to the excellent seats, which will be fully adjustable and covered in leather. Elsewhere in the cabin, the customers should also see plenty of leather, posh, and fine wood accents. Controlling all the different functions will also be quite easy and convenient, thanks to a redesigned dashboard that features conveniently placed buttons and knobs. For the infotainment purposes, we can expect a 12.3-inch touchscreen display, a 19-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, a quad-zone climate control, Bluetooth streaming, an HD Radio and more.
