The next-generation Toyota Tundra is on its way and along with it, we count on that a complete body-on-frame lineup will be redesigned. Still, it looks like that won’t happen so soon and that the 2021 Lexus LX 570 is about to continue in the same way for another year. According to the latest redesign, a complete overhaul will happen in about two years. Therefore, this should be the last model year of the current generation. Naturally, we don’t expect to see any bigger changes for that occasion. Moreover, we count on the same design and features. Even bigger changes in terms of standard features are not expected.
Once the next generation arrives, we will see a full load of novelties and improvements. Until then, count on familiar design and features. The thing includes the powertrain, standard equipment and all other things. When it comes to the 2021 Lexus LX 570 release date, expect to see it sometime late in the next year.
2021 Lexus LX 570 Design
Although many expected to see a complete 2021 Lexus LX 570 redesign, that won’t happen. A complete overhaul will probably happen a year later. Therefore, we have no doubt that the upcoming model will come with familiar design characteristics. Of course, this particularly refers to mechanics and exterior design. In terms of mechanics, this model is pretty much identical to the Land Cruiser.
However, it comes with its own styling, based on Lexus’ design language. Naturally, both models are exceptional in terms of off-road performances. Still, this one is slightly limited, due to different bumper designs, which are providing longer overhangs, which isn’t a good thing for off-roading. Still, the 2021 Lexus LX 570 will remain more capable than almost any other full-size SUV on the market.
Things on the inside are about to remain the same as well. Smaller 2021 Lexus LX 570 changes in this aspect are possible, in terms of new color schemes, but the overall cabin design will remain the same. This means the same well-built cabin, which is full of hi-quality materials. The overall quality may be amazing, but aesthetics are definitely showing signs of aging in this SUV. Simply, this model has been around since 2008, so it’s no wonder that much younger competitors are more stylish in this aspect.
On the other side, the LX is a pretty functional and practical vehicle. There is plenty of room in the cabin, event in the third row, which can accommodate adults as well. When it comes to cargo capacity, you can count on pretty good numbers for the class. However, a little drawback could be the fact that the third row folds to the side, which is a little untypical manner in the modern automotive industry.
When it comes to standard features, the 2021 Lexus LX 570 will still be a tough competitor in the segment, despite the age. All models will come standard with tech goodies like a 12.3-inch display with Lexus’ Remote Touch controller, navigation, a nine-speaker audio system, satellite radio, USB ports, and Bluetooth. In higher trims, you can also get a premium 19-speaker system, cooled center console, wireless charging and more.
Another strong point of this SUV is safety, so we don’t expect bigger 2021 Lexus LX 570 changes in this aspect either. All models come standard with things like a 360-degree camera system, front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and forward-collision warning with automatic braking. This seems pretty good for a vehicle that is more than a decade old. Additionally, you can get a head-up display.
2021 Lexus LX 570 Engines
Under the hood, you will find a good old 5.7-liter V8 engine. In this case, it delivers around 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque. Therefore, you definitely won’t lack power in this SUV. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic, which works well. The engine is super-reliable, a class leader.
On the other side, it isn’t that great when it comes to fuel economy. Moreover, you can count on the lowest mpg ratings in the class, as this large SUV returns around 13 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway.
2021 Lexus LX 570 Release Date and Price
When it comes to the 2021 Lexus LX 570 release, we presume that the new model will come sometime late in the next year. The price should remain the same, which would mean around 86.000 dollars for base models. As we’ve already mentioned, this should be the last model year of the current generation. A complete overhaul is expected for a year later. Naturally, we count on a lot of novelties, which will definitely make this luxury SUV more competitive in the segment where you can find models like Lincoln Navigator, Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes-Benz G-Class etc.
