The Lexus LX 570 is powered by a 5.7-litre naturally aspirated V8 petrol engine that produces 362 hp at 5,600 rpm and 530 Nm of torque at 3,200 rpm. An 8-speed automatic transmission and a full-time 4WD system are standard.

Then there’s also 5-speed Crawl Control, which automatically maintains an optimal slow and steady pace over challenging terrains. It automatically adjusts the torque and brakes on each wheel independently.

Inside, the full-size luxury SUV boasts the high-precision Takumi craftsmanship in semi-aniline leather upholstery and the Shimamoku trim on the steering wheel.
The Lexus LX 570 is packed with a plethora of comfort and convenience features, with which it expresses the Lexus spirit of hospitality, or ‘omotenashi’. Lexus Climate Concierge for individual temperature customisation and comfort, 19-speaker Mark Levinson reference surround sound system and 11.6 HD liquid crystal AI displays for rear seats are a few of these features.
