n the world of luxury SUVs, companies have to make sure they build vehicles that have it all: power, comfort, technology, convenience, and all the little details that let the vehicle warrant a hefty price tag. The 2020 Lexus LX 570 is a complete package. It gives customers something they can rely on, and it has high-end components both inside and outside the cabin. Here are 4 reasons why people should consider purchasing the LX 570, along with a few drawbacks.
1. A Powerful Vehicle
The 2020 Lexus LX 570 runs on an advanced engine. The 5.7-liter V8 under the hood provides 45,4 of torque and 362 horsepower. These stats show that the SUV will have no trouble handling itself in many situations. Drivers who value handling and power can enjoy being behind the wheel of the LX 570.
2. Ready to Go Off-Roading
Full-time four-wheel drive provides additional traction and control. When necessary, power will be sent to the wheels that can use it, so the vehicle doesn't lose its grip. The driver doesn't need to make any adjustments in order for four-wheel drive to kick in.
Several other factors make the LX 570 ready for the trails. Crawl Control can come in handy when driving over especially challenging terrain, as it can keep the vehicle moving at a slow and steady pace. With Turn Assist, the Lexus can make tighter turns because brake force can be added to the inside rear wheel. Active Height Control and Adaptive Variable Suspension can work together to lift up the SUV by three inches for higher clearance. Hill-Start Assist Control can be used on hills to prevent rolling back when pressure is lifted from the brake pedal.
Additionally, the LX 570 comes with a Multi-Terrain Select system. Drivers can choose from five types of terrain - Rock, Rock & Dirt, Mogul, Loose Rock, and Mud & Sand - to optimize performance in unique situations.
People in the back can stay entertained with an available dual-screen Rear-Seat Entertainment System. What makes this system stand apart from many others is that two video sources can be viewed simultaneously. When kids or adults with different interests are riding in the SUV, one screen can be used for video games or music playback while the other can be used to watch a movie, for instance. The system includes a wireless remote that can be used from any point in the vehicle and an AC power outlet that will keep devices charged. The entertainment system's wireless headphones keep passengers from getting tangled in cords.
3. A Comprehensive Safety Package
People can drive with peace of mind in a LX 570. Both the two- and three-row models come with the Lexus Safety System+. It includes a monitoring system that can detect vehicles and pedestrians in the path of the SUV. If the driver doesn't break in time, the Lexus will automatically brake to avoid an accident. This may sometimes mean that the SUV brings itself to a complete halt.
The system also includes Lane Departure Alert, a program that uses a high-resolution camera to determine whether the Lexus is within lane markings. If the system detects something out of place at speeds above 32 miles per hour, it will release audible and visual warnings in addition to vibrating the steering wheel.
All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Intelligent High Beams are other components of the safety package. The advanced cruise control system can maintain a pre-set distance with the vehicle in front, even in stop-and-go traffic. Intelligent High Beams will automatically switch between high and low beams depending on whether other cars are detected on the road.
Taking the level of luxury up one notch is an available artisan-crafted wood trim, which can come in either Linear Dark Mocha or Linear Espresso. This trim creates something that you might see in an elegant den or study. Leather seats throughout the cabin are soft, comfortable, and supportive. The front seats come heated and can come ventilated as well. The Luxury package comes with heated and ventilated seats in the second row, also. A 12.3-inch high-resolution display is standard on the 2020 Lexus LX 570. This is the largest split-screen in its class, and it provides the driver with information about vehicle performance as well as lets people access the infotainment system. Since the cabin feels quite spacious, it's fitting that the screen is also large. The screen looks like it fits perfectly into the dashboard.
An available feature is a cool box, which would be integrated into the center console, giving people something refreshing to sip on when out on the road.
