About the car
This car was built by Toyota as part of the luxury branch of Lexus they created in 2007, more commonly known as Lexus LX. The LX name stands for ‘Luxury Crossover’ and had been completely redesigned from the previous model and continued to receive a total of three facelifts from 2007 to the present day.
The LX 570 has a certified 5.7 litre 3UR-FE V8 engine with a power output of 383 horsepower. This helps increase the towing capacity for the vehicle of up to 3,900kg. The grand SUV also comes with a multi-terrain anti-lock braking system which, on tricky surfaces such as gravel and sand, ensures shorter stopping distances. While the Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) prevents the car rolling backwards on hills and slippery surfaces.
The LX models are Lexus’ most expensive and largest luxury SUV, of which the Third Generation (LX 570) is sold and well-appreciated worldwide. It comes in a wide variety of colours, including the unique Straight Black Glass Flake.
