The 2017 Lexus LX proves that SUVs don’t just have to be cheaply-made people movers that lack class and capability. The premium-level LX utility vehicle was purposefully engineered to cross rough terrain while still maintaining its high-end elegance. Kelley Blue Book hailed the LX 570 as both rugged and refined; it’s easy to see why this full-size SUV, now in its third generation, has been a pillar in Lexus’ lineup for two decades.
The Heart Under the Hood
What gives the 2017 LX its power is its finely-tuned powertrains that delivers unparalleled performance. With only one trim for the 2017 model year, the LX 570 gets a 5.7-liter V8 engine enhanced by a Eight-speed paddle-shift transmission to reach 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque. That’s far more than its competitors can claim. If you’re not conquering the wilderness, the LX also earns reasonable fuel efficiency: 13 miles per gallon in the city, 18 mpg on the highway, and 15 mpg combined.
