Lexus LX570 2008 review: snapshot

Australian pricing and specifications for the LX570 have not yet been confirmed, but expect a plethora of luxury features.

The Toyota LandCruiser arrives in Lexus form with a heap of extra equipment including an impressive 10 airbags.

Although Australian pricing and specifications have not yet been confirmed, expect luxury features such as four-zone climate control, power sliding second-row split seating, navigation system with Bluetooth, nine-speaker premium sound, and power third-row seating, rear-seat entertainment system and 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system.

At the core of the beast is the 5.7-litre V-8 engine pumps out 284kW of power, 84kW more than Toyota's older 4.7-litre V-8.

Torque has also increased, from 444Nm to 602Nm.

It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shifting and a Torsen limited slip differential for the full-time four-wheel drive.

Towing capacity increases from 2948kg to 3855kg.

Off-road features include adaptable suspension with quicker responses and finer adjustment, Crawl Control and active height control that lowers the chassis about 5cm for easier entry and exit, and raises it at lower speeds, lowering it again at higher speeds to help out in tarmac aerodynamics and fuel-efficiency.
