Go-anywhere off-road capability; strong towing capacity; more refined ride and handling than Land Cruiser sibling; plush cabin and meticulous build quality
Terrible fuel economy; frustrating tech interface; minimal cargo space behind third row that folds laterally against cargo walls; cumbersome on-road handling
We would opt for the 3-row model as it should have better resale value, and those wayback seats are at least useful in a pitch. We would also opt for the Luxury package (love the ventilated front and rear seats) as well as the superb Mark Levinson sound system. Find a Lexus LX for sale

2019 Lincoln Navigator -- The Navigator provides superior space, power and fuel economy, along with a swank cabin and lower base price. It can't go the places that the LX 570 can.
2019 Land Rover Range Rover -- The Range Rover is perhaps the closest to the LX in providing a combination of luxury and go-anywhere capability. It's more civilized on road, however. Reliability tends to be worse.
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class -- Like the Navigator, the GLS is better suited to on-road environments and people-carrying. It's very luxurious, however, and for the same price as the LX 570, you'd be looking at the far more powerful GLS 550 model.
Used Lexus LX 570 -- The LX has been around without a full redesigned for 11 years now, so you won't be missing that much by going with a used or certified pre-owned version. However, it received its current styling and more overtly Lexus interior for 2016 -- before then, it was much closer to a rebadged Land Cruiser.
