Benefits of Driving a 2011 Lexus LX Models Sport Utility
The LX 570 is a luxurious yet tough sport-utility vehicle, and an ideal choice for those who need serious truck prowess, for towing or off-road ability. The 7,000-pound tow rating is very respectable in this class, and its tough body-on-frame construction makes it a good choice for those who frequently carry loads or go off-road. While the LX 570 is closely related to the Toyota Land Cruiser, it will appeal to those who want more luxury and the superior Lexus dealership experience.

The LX 570 is built on a sturdy truck platform that is shared with the Toyota Land Cruiser. It's powered by a 383-hp, 5.7-liter V8, hooked up to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine utilizes Dual Variable Valve Timing for smooth responsiveness through a wide rev range, and Lexus says that it produces its peak torque of 403-pound-feet at 3,600 rpm and 90 percent of that at just 2,200 rpm--which makes it well-suited to towing.
