Of all the subsidiary Japanese luxury brands around, it is safe to say that Lexus has taken an upper hand of late. A straightforward and reliable model line-up, Lexus has kept to its primary motto of adding luxury to utility. What has probably worked for them is their no-frills attitude ion decking up their offerings. Buyers rarely have any point for complaint, and they have refreshed their models comprehensively over the past. A 2018 Lexus LX 570 will come with the same motto, but, as far as insider sources ought to be believed, this new refreshment is expected to be quite a bit better than previous models.
2018 Lexus LX 570 Introduced
The biggest thing on four wheels that Lexus has ever produced, LX is one of the more successful models from their stable. A Lexus full-size SUV housing seven passengers and not just kids, the utility is as good as it can get. The basic chassis is simply an extended format of the smaller GX line-up. However, a 2018 Lexus LX 570 is firmly on the cards.
Full-size SUV sales are expected to pick once the crossover craze gets saturated. Lexus looks to make the best of it and repeat the high sales it has achieved. There are quite a few expected modifications for this model. So, read on.
Exterior modifications for Lexus LX 570 2018
Not much actually and this is the only aspect which will not change for this upcoming refreshment. So far, the design already strikes out. The massive grille and its design with the added side accents will obviously continue. 2018 Lexus LX 570 air intakes are accentuated by sharply angled front bumpers. Including the hood design, the eagle-beak shaped design is stunning. However, it does seem a bit out of place compared to the rear end.
The Japs would do well to give this Lexus LX 570 2018 a better rear end. It lacks the sharpness which the front end has. Rounded rear lights do look out of place with their design language. Moreover, in short, these are just the changes which Lexus seems to add for this upcoming model. As for specifics, stay tuned!
Currently, 2018 Lexus LX 570 is powered by a 5.7 L V8 with VVT-iE (Variable Valve Timing with Electronic intake manifold). Optimizing power and fuel efficiency together, this power unit is rated quite highly as a jack of all trades with outputs coming in at 383 HP and 403 lb-ft. Added to an 8-Speed ECT (Electronically Controlled Transmission) and a 4WD drivetrain, it scored conclusively off the beaten tracks too.
This whole setup is going to continue in this upcoming Lexus LX 570 2018 as well. However, it will not be the only engine option. Lexus in all probability will add a hybrid setup. It already has the right platform with the smaller RX series. To produce outputs around 400 HP and 420 lb-ft., EPA will range in at around 27 mpg combined.
Other Expected Changes?
To be released by mid-2018, interior modifications can only be speculated. Pricing for this 2018 Lexus LX 570 will start from above the $90,000 range. Anything else would be too much of a speculation, but this model will continue to compete against the likes of Infiniti QX 60, Merc GL350.
