2016 Lexus LX 570 Redesign, Hybrid

Lexus, luxury division of Toyota Motor Company, started the production of the LX full-size luxury SUV back in 199, when it presented the 1996 model of the model. Current LX 570 is in its third generation which started back in 2007, which is quite long time ago. Even though there is quite little info about the 2016 Lexus LX 570, and not all of them are reliable, we will dare to say that we expect the new model to start the fourth generation. This anticipation is based on several things, including the long-lasting period of the current, third generation and the low level of changes in previous years.

Even if the 2016 model year doesn’t bring big redesign and new generations, some changes will definitely happen. Front end including headlights and grill will be revised and remodeled, to offer more modern appearance that goes in line with other models from this luxury brand. More swept back headlights, as well as more elegant grill will make the 2016 LX 570 appeal much younger. Primarily oriented for family use, this main characteristic of this SUV will stay the same. Lexus already launched, or plans to, few new models which will find their way to youngsters, but the LX 570 stays the no. 1 choice for families. Other exterior changes may include reshape of the hood, which would contribute the LX 570 to fit in more with the rest of the crowd.

If Lexus decides to fully redesign its LX 570 than we will, most definitely see some extensive change in materials used for construction, which will be replaced with light-weighted ones. This change is mainly caused by its competitors, and their fuel economy, which is better than the one LX 570 currently offers.

Interior changes will mainly be related to materials and features upgrade. It will include high-quality materials and best-in-class technology. We can also expect new 2016 Lexus LX 570 to be very comfortable and easy to use, since the space and simplicity is always a plus when it comes to family SUVs. Beside great convenience and entertainment features, we can also expect the safety measures to be among the top 5 in its class.

Under the hood of the 2016 Lexus LX 570 SUV we don’t expect major changes. In fact, we believe that 2016 LX will be equipped with the same engine as its predecessor – a 5.7-liter V8. This powertrain has the ability to produce up to 383 hp and 403 pound-feet of torque. It comes mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

However not all aspects regarding the performance of the LX 570 will stay the same. Fuel economy and acceleration time (0-60 mph) should mark significant upgrades. The 7.4 seconds acceleration time should be reduced, since the weight problem has a lot to do with it. Second problem, which is its fuel economy, should also benefit from weight reduction, and its 12/17/14 city/hwy/combined mileage should be increased.

Price tag should feature an increase, due to severe changes expected in the upcoming model, and it is not expected to start before $85,000.
