Pricing on the 2013 Lexus LX 570 will start at $80,930, an increase of $1,475 on the 2012 model or a rise of about 1.9 percent. Note, this price does not include the $875 destination charge.
Key among the upgrades on the new model are styling changes, which consist of new lights, fore and aft, revised bumpers, and a new wheel pattern for the standard 20-inch wheels. The turn signals have also been added to the side mirrors, and the body moldings on the flanks of the vehicle also sport a new look.
Inside, 2013 LX 570 buyers are enticed by a dark chrome finish for the center console and front side air vents, along with real mahogany wood trim, and a new “cashmere” color for the eight leather-trimmed seats.
