The 2016 Lexus LX 570 5-Door SUV is one of GAYOT's Top 10 Dog-Friendly Cars 

Lexus’ largest SUV gets a mild makeover and a facelift for the new model year. Let's walk you through a review of the 2016 Lexus LX 570. The nip and tuck job doesn’t change what’s under the sheet metal that much, but it does result in an updated look that, for better or worse, now fits in with the rest of the Lexus lineup. The interior is similarly resurfaced, with new stitched leather on the dash and console and a more welcoming look to the controls. Some new active safety features and a new 8-speed automatic transmission round out the changes.

The Lexus LX 570 has always been a large vehicle, based off the enduring and very capable Toyota Land Cruiser. The 2016 LX 570 is still large, and still capable, though it lacks some of the sportiness of rivals from Range Rover and BMW. Its more direct competition is probably the larger SUVs from Mercedes-Benz and GMC. Unlike the current Range Rover Sport, the LX 570 is officially a “truck-based” SUV, and its chassis is, despite the luxury trappings, more optimized for getting gritty off road than cruising on smooth pavement.

The V8 engine carries over, with 383 horsepower, making the LX 570 an adequate, if not athletic, performer. Thanks to remaining on the Land Cruiser’s platform though, this luxe SUV has some legitimate off-road potential -- as long as you forgo the optional wheels and tires, that is. The 2016 Lexus LX 570 definitely doesn’t lag behind in luxury or safety features. The interior is available in multiple shades of wood, and Siri hands-free phone control is offered as well.

The Lexus Pre-Collision System integrates blind-spot warning, pedestrian detection, auto high beams, lane departure warning and radar cruise control. A larger display is optional, with full phone and navigation connectivity via the Lexus Enform system.

If you want a solid drive capable of many on and off road duties, then you can't do better than jumping into this Japanese made 2016 Lexus LX 570 sport utility vehicle. Our bright starfire pearl white machine had a 7,000 pound towing capacity.

Warranty/Service: 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, 5-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty, 5-year/unlimited-mile corrosion warranty
