When it comes to the mechanics and the interior layout, there are no many separating points between the Lexus LX 570 and capable Toyota Land Cruiser. Two models have the same chassis and construction and the venerable V-8 engine is also under both hoods. The Lexus has a newer height-adjustable suspension and seats lower to the ground. However, the LX 570 has also more expressive exterior, higher quality materials, and textures.
This impressive LX SUV has been around since 2006 in the current generation and many expecting its new generation to come. However, there are no signs yet that Lexus is working on the new generation version and as the things now stand, the 2019 Lexus LX 570 will arrive with minimal changes. What has been known so far there should be the new configuration option. While the RX has gained the third row the upcoming LX 570 will offer the two-row option while will keep the cramped third row as well.

So, the 2019 Lexus LX 570 will make some reconfigurations inside while it will return in the same shape and styling theme.
The model has the boxy body that adds some sculpting on the hood, around fenders and the tailgate to look better but shiny elements and large wheels highlight its high-class pedigree.
The massive chrome, spindle grille dominates up front and sharp headlights with the attractive accents bellow also get the attention. More chrome is present around the fog lights, windows and on the tailgate. And the large 20-inch or 21-inch wheels also add to its appearance.
The cabin of the Lexus LX 570 will appear with the same attractive and elegant design and with high-class materials. The large center display will also be in the same position as well as the other controls. There will also be plush seats and effective climate system plus plenty of other rich features.
