Editor's Overview

Based on the popular Toyota Land Cruiser, the 2018 Lexus LX 570 takes an already luxurious platform and elevates it to world-class status. With its powerful V8 engine and stout off-road abilities, the LX 570 can easily challenge newer luxury SUVs like the Land Rover Range Rover, yet it retains a record of reliability and resale few others can touch.
