    The 2019 Lexus LX570 is a $95,000 luxury SUV -- and also a disappointment. Today I'm reviewing the LX570 to show you why it could be better, and why I prefer its rivals. I'm going to show you around the LX570, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of Lexus's SUV -- then I'm going to drive it.

    Doug has NO idea what the Lexus LX is built for. Its not meant to be a sporty mordern day run of the mill SUV. It stays true to its origins reliability..smoothness..quiet and "non worrier" ...People who buy these feel very comfortable when they walkout to their garage and out the key in ..no matter the whether. The terrain or destination. This is not meant to be a fast "race-you-tothe-next-light" SUV. Thats actually what the smaller GX is for. The LX is for more Mature. Take-the-family and road trips at normal speed and cruising levels. And not for the young immature hot heads who think everything should do 100 in 2 secs. Respect the vehicle for what it is. Dont bash it for you think it should be. And feul economy is a non issue for anyone soending over $90k on ANY vehicle. Thats like asking Lambo to make a hybrid URUS to get better fuel economy..ridiculous argument to make for a luxury reliable SUV such as this...smh

          You pay 95K for the quality of the engine & transmission. Some SUVs including American or European don't even make it to 100Kmiles.

            My dad have 2002 land cruiser and until now this car still amazing and efficient too (i grow up with it)

            Now he want to renew his car
            we almost buy the new LC but when we test lexus LX, we think this is the car for him for retired time

            The comfort, i love when the 1st time i sat on there and the luxury “feels”
            This is totally different feels to LC
            The sound system is amazing, very quiet cabin. If you have money just buy it

                  The parking assist distance feature would be great in New York where people often park in very tight spaces and don’t need the car beeping so early. A lot of time my Audi A7 beeps so early that you think you’re very close to something and get out and realize you had more space. Then people begin to ignore the beep because of this distance discrepancy and actually hit or scrape something.

                    His only critique is that it isn’t a spaceship that’s easily useable for even the most moronic of individuals.

                                  in 5 years all the features you point on Europeans lux cars wont work. also in 10 years euro lux cars are worth maybe 25 percent what you paid for. most lexus owners by it for reliability not looks

                                        I don't get how he can love the Land Cruiser, but trash this when they're the same car at the same price (the LX is like 6k more but at this price point that's nothing). He goes on and on about the Lincoln, the Range Rover, etc when this is it's own thing. Lexus has carved it's own niche in that segment. People who care about RELIABILITY. They don't need to go up against all those competitors.

                                            It looks so out of place in the rest of the lexus line up. Looks dated the minute it was launched

                                                    95000 same car with better styling and luxury features doesn't
                                                    Doug is to polarised and i think he is not sure what he's saying.
                                                    Doug research more, about cars you ar reviewing.
                                                    The fact-any year lx is much much comfortable than the newest g class. Yes it is good offroader but pretty uncomfortable
                                                    P.s my dad had range and it is true trash, escalade too and all other rivals.

                                                      You people really think it's worth to buy this car for almost 100k because it is reliable and will last you a lifetime. Well, yeah that probably is true BUT
                                                      people who can afford this car at this price range aren't type of people who would be worrying about the cost to fix a car, and most of nowadays cars are similar in terms of reliability.
                                                      First, if a person decided to spend 100k on a car, there's a rare chance they are looking for a longggg reliability or will be riding the same car for the next 10 years. Car priced at 100k have all the new fancy technology combined luxury features and options that keeps developing over time. People get attracted with these newly designed options and designs and end up investing 100k on a car that seems to catch their eyes. These people with 100k spending on car will most likely going to be buying a new car after couple years, searching for another luxury well around 100k car.
                                                      If someone really wanted to find a reliable long run car, they'd go for a toyota without updating features and options.
                                                      I'm not saying there's few people out there wanting reliability and luxury at the same time and will be riding a same car for over couple years, but the point of these cars priced at over 100k are well more than just the reliability.
                                                      Their niche, their goal is to make fancy luxurious styling and features, rather than making a car go run for over 10 years.
                                                      Well, not trying to disgrace y'all as I'm in the same boat, but to the customers of this car, it's not like how we think "BMW just cost me $1500 for broken door sensor!!!! UGH MY LIFE" and "Oh Lexus runs forever without a fix! I love saving money!!!"

                                                      In this sense, Lexus's reliability plays a lot less role in luxury vehicles, and loses toward all the other luxurious vehicles priced similarly.

Tried and true. Currently in the market for an LX570 before they abandon the V8 for something more “economical.”
