Lexus refreshed their LX 570 for the 2013 model year, and today they announced pricing for the luxury utility vehicle raising it 1.9-percent compared to last year’s model to $80,930.
The new LX 570 features new, bold styling, interior upgrades, cutting-edge technology and remarkable off-road capabilities all wrapped in the luxurious package you’d expect from a Lexus.
Under the hood, the LX 570 is powered by a 5.7L V8 engine featuring four cams and four valves per cylinder with Lexus’s dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). It pushes out 383-hp and 403 lb-ft of torque, offering plenty of power for the utility vehicle.
An optional Luxury Package was also announced for the 2013 LX 570 priced at $1,510 and will include a cool box for beverages, semi-aniline leather-trimmed upholstery with contrast stitching, heated steering wheel, new mahogany wood-trimmed door switch plates, a rear-center armrest cover, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats and Smart Access card key.
Additional entertainment can also be had for $2,005, adding dual screen rear-seat entertainment system with wireless headphones and three-prong electrical outlet. The two video sources can play different content at the same time, so no fighting amongst the kids on which Disney movie to watch.
The announced MSRP of $80,930 does not include delivery, processing and handling fee of $875.
GALLERY: 2013 Lexus LX 570
Ahead of its official debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, Lexus has released photos and a press release on their refreshed 2013 LX570 SUV. The facelifted LX570 is surprisingly aggressive and sporty, and it’s clear that Lexus is trying to make a consistent statement with their front fascia designs across all their models – starting with the 2013 GS.
The new front and rear bumpers go with the new Lexus spindle grille, 20-inch wheels and upgraded interior. Lighting has also been changed with new LED daytime running lights to go with the new headlight design and larger foglight bezels. In the rear, the taillights have also been tweaked while the license plate surround gets a new look and a tow hitch cover is more integrated.
Powering the LX 570 is a 5.7L V8 engine with 383-hp and 403 lb-ft of torque. An electronically-controlled six-speed automatic transmission is mated to the powerplant while the transfer case provides full-time, four-wheel drive.
Inside, one can expect all the luxury amenities typically found in all of Lexus’s models in a spacious, eight-passenger cabin.
