Lexus Updates LX570 SUV for 2013

Big luxury off-roader gets a raft of upgrades to keep it up to date.
These days Lexus makes a whole range of SUVs and crossovers, but back in the day there was only one: the LX. Essentially a rebadged version of the Toyota Land Cruiser, the LX was and remains a leather-lined beast of a truck. Now Lexus has given it a bit of an update. The facelift centers primarily around the exterior, which has been updated with its own version of the company's new "spindle" grille design. The interior, however, has also been enhanced with some mahogany wood trim and a new multimedia system.

In addition to iPod, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, the LX now includes high-def radio and Lexus Enform 2.0 information system. The rest carries over essentially unchanged, including the monstrous 5.7-liter V8 engine driving all four wheels with a Torsen limited-slip locking center differential. The updated LX570 does, however, benefit from a new off-road Crawl Control system that helps it traverse particularly tricky terrain at low speed, a new Turn Assist system that helps reduce the vehicle's enormous turning circle by braking the inside wheel and a five-mode terrain select system.
