Lexus has released the pricing information for the 2013 LX 570 luxury utility vehicle, which will arrive at dealerships in early February. It comes with aggressive new styling, interior modifications, advanced technology and amazing off-road capabilities. The LX has a price tag of $80,930, which is $1,475 or 1.9% higher than the previous model.

This excludes a delivery, processing and handling fee of $875. The front and rear of the 2013 LX 570 have a new appearance. Its look is further enhanced with the Lexus spindle grille. The headlamp design has been updated and is complemented with new LED daytime running lights and new larger fog lamp bezels.

The taillamps were also improved. Meanwhile, the look of the rear license plate surround was changed and the tow hitch cover is more integrated. The front and rear bumpers have been refreshed and a chrome accent enhances the rear bumper protector. The side mirrors have the turn signals while the bodyside moldings are wider and have a fresh look.

Powering the LX 570 is an advanced 5.7-liter V8, four cams, and four valves per cylinder engine with dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). With an output of 383hp and 403 lb.-ft. of torque, the engine could handle challenging tasks with incredible smoothness.

The LX has an enhanced Crawl Control feature that offers maximum throttle and brake modulation when driven over rough, uneven or challenging surfaces. How the new Turn Assist feature works is that it tightens turning circles by getting more brake force to the inside rear wheel. With the new Multi-terrain Select, the driver could optimize performance by selecting from five types of terrain settings.

LX interior has been given a new multimedia system (with available next-generation Lexus Enform). It also has a color TFT multi-information display, better front seat cooling, easy access for the driver’s seat, and a power outlet for the middle row and distinctive trims and accents.

Exterior Design

New Lexus LX 570 has the new spindle grille and better interiors, as well as new designs for its 20-inch alloy wheel. All of these hint that the LX 570 is perfect for daily driving and off-road situations.

2013 Lexus LX 570 has undergone a facelift. Up front, you have new daytime running lamps that use LED technology, while the fog lamp has larger and new bezels. Meanwhile, the taillights and the license plate surround at the back have received a similar redesign.

In addition, the tow hitch cover is now more seamlessly integrated. Moreover, the bumpers have both been redesigned with the rear bumper protector now sporting a stainless steel accent. The side mirrors now have turn signals and the bodyside moldings are now wider and have a fresh appearance.

Finally, you can choose from a pair of new exterior colors. These are Satin Cashmere Metallic and Medium Nebula Gray Pearl.

Interior Design

Further, the cabin is very spacious and can accommodate eight passengers. The cabin has also been given a lot of modifications and upgrades. There is the new Easy Access system for the driver's seat, making it easier to enter or exit the car. The driver's seat and the steering wheel retracts automatically when you turn off the ignition, while the front seats now have better cooling and a 120-volt power outlet is now found in the middle row.

Its instrument cluster has also been redesigned and now sports a new color. The center instrument cluster has a darker chrome finish, as does the side air vents. Meanwhile, just above the glove box, you will find a new chrome accent that serves to refresh the instrument panel's appearance.

Further, the cabin also has a mahogany wood trim. Instead of cashmere, you now find parchment as the color for the leather trim inside.
