Brand New: Lexus LX 570 2013
Thought it would be something major. Bummer.
Lexus has put the LX 570 under the knife for 2013. The sprawling SUV makes its debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show wearing a revised front fascia, complete with the company’s “spindle” grille design and new LED daytime running lights – very similar to its sister SUV, the Toyota Land Cruiser. The vehicle’s side-view mirrors now come equipped with integrated turning indicators for the first time, and around back, the 2013 Lexus LX 570 wears redesigned tail lamps alongside a revised rear valance with stainless steel accents. A new 20-inch wheel design is also part of the update.
Indoors, the 2013 LX 570 comes equipped with a new Easy Access system for the driver, which automatically retracts the steering wheel and driver’s seat for easier ingress and egress. Designers sprinkled new mahogany wood trim throughout the cabin as well as additional 120-volt power adapters. Likewise, the instrument cluster now comes in a new color scheme for 2013. Snazzy.
Otherwise, expect to find the same 5.7-liter V8 underhood that’s powered LX 570 models of yore. That means buyers can look forward to a stout 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque.
