Pricing for the refreshed 2013 Lexus LX 570 luxury SUV has been announced. The updated LX lands in dealerships next month, and will carry a price tag of $81,805 (including destination fees), which is roughly $1475 more than the previous model.
For that amount of cash, you gain a revamped exterior, which includes Lexus’ new corporate grille, revised headlamps with LED daytime running lights, updated taillights, and side mirrors with integrated turn signals. The 5.7-liter V-8 carries over from last year’s model, and still offers the same 383 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque. Lexus did, however, update the Crawl Control feature, which is intended to provide optimum throttle and brake modulation over rough, uneven surfaces. A new Multi-Terrain Select feature allows drivers to choose between five terrain settings, while the new Turn Assist function can tighten the vehicle’s turning circle by increasing brake force on the inside rear wheel.
Also included is a new multimedia system, available with Lexus’ Enform Application Suite. Drivers can connect their mobile phone to Enform to search the web, make restaurant reservations by voice command, check-in on Facebook, or purchase movie tickets online. Internet radio services like Pandora and iHeartRadio are also accessible through Enform.
An optional Luxury package is available for the LX, and is priced at $1510. The package includes a cool box for beverages, semi-aniline leather-trimmed upholstery, mahogany door trim, heated and ventilated front seats, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a Smart Access card key. A dual screen rear-seat entertainment system is also available, which costs $2005, and comes with wireless headphones, rear three-prong electrical outlet, and dual-source playback capability.
The 2013 Lexus LX 570 hits dealerships in early February.
