...Then again, you don't have to pay the LX's $55,000-plus manufacturer's suggested retail price. Smooth ride, smooth power Still, the LX is an impressive vehicle. The V8 is refined compared with what you might expect to find in a sport ute. It's four-cam, 32-valve design is derived from the 4.0-liter V8 found in Lexus cars. You may be surprised at how much power you feel, especially as you get going. Lexus says you can get this big sport ute to 60 miles an hour from standstill in 10.1 seconds, which is slightly faster than Cadillac's 0-to-60-mph rating for its Escalade. The LX engine is...

...The LX 570's towing capacity is an impressive 8,500 pounds, while its fuel economy is (not surprisingly) a rather thirsty 12 mpg city/18 mpg highway and 14 mpg combined.

...After all, one can't have everything with the LX 470, although it seems as if you can have nearly everything. The split third-row seat is tough to reach unless you're agile, and it's mostly for kids. That seat is foldable and removable, which is a good thing because the cargo area is just average for such a big truck when the seat is in place. Superb Engine The 4.7-liter 230-horsepower V8 is almost a work of art. It's quiet, smooth and strong—as it must be to motivate a lux truck that weighs 5,401 pounds. The dual-overhead-camshaft engine allows the LX 470 to be one of the fastest full-size...

...The hydraulic adjustable height control lets a driver raise the LX 470 with a switch to negotiate rough off-road terrain, although one wonders how many owners of this vehicle will want to risk getting its beautiful paint job scratched during off-road motoring. On the flip side, the height-adjustable feature lets the LX 470 be lowered a bit for easier entry and exit. That's a good thing because it calls for extra effort to get in and out of this high vehicle with its normal height setting. Still, how many people will want to fool with that switch each time they get in and out. Too bad the...

...but it can also handle towing up to 8,500 pounds.Interestingly, a number of features that could benefit potential owners who never plan to take their LX 570 off-road were developed in extreme climates. The antilock brake system can adapt to multiple surfaces such as gravel and also improves performance in wet weather conditions. A hill-start system also prevents slippage on inclines.Like other luxury makes, Lexus has optioned the LX 570 with a "pre-collision system" that includes a number of safety features. Side impact and knee impact airbags for both front occupants come with this option...
