2015 Lexus LX Preview

Full-size luxury By ,

Pros: Large and luxurious, the Lexus LX offers high-end amenities and plenty of space, plus the ability to take you and your highbrow family off the beaten path. 

Cons: The current model is dated, drinks a lot of fuel, and is only offered in one guise from Lexus. 

2015 Lexus LX Price and Fuel Economy: As mentioned above, there is only one version of the Lexus LX available -- the LX 570 -- and its starting price is $96,400. And that’s it. There are no packages available to differentiate your LX 570 from the rest. You get to choose the colour (varying shades of grey/white) and a few choice accessories (like a paint protection film for approx.. $700 or a trunk mat), and that’s it. 

As for fuel economy, this is not a fuel saver by any stretch of the imagination. Expect to achieve around 19.0L/100km in the city and 13.6L/100km on the open road. 

Powertrain: As there’s only one model, there’s only one engine to choose in the Lexus LX 570: a 5.7L V8 that produces 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque. Power is handled via an automatic 6-speed Electronically Controlled Transmission (ECT). The LX 570 also comes standard with Lexus 4WD and A-TRAC (Active Traction Control) which monitors wheel slippage and keeps you on the straight and narrow, no matter the road surface. 

Changes and Improvements: No significant changes or updates were made to the 2015 Lexus LX 570. 

Cargo Capacity: There’s room for eight in the 2015 Lexus LX 570, and the trunk will swallow up 439 litres behind the third row; fold that third row down and you’ve got 1,160 litres to play with. 

Safety: The 2015 Lexus LX 570 is equipped with all manner of standard safety equipment and airbags.
