Off-road prowess with street style; luxury features and conveniences; standard safety; comfortable ride
After its 2008 incarnation, the 2009 Lexus LX 570 remains largely unchanged. One exception is the addition of a Luxury Package.
The 2009 Lexus LX 570 truly offers the best of both worlds, coupling a smooth ride and on-road handling with impressive off-road ability. The V8 has enough punch to deal with towing and hilly terrain. Its countless safety features and electronic aids help get through the tough terrain and make it home safely.
Powering the Lexus LX 570 is a 5.7L V8--similar to that which powers the Toyota Tundra pickup--makes 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque. An impressive 90 percent of that peak torque is available from 2,200 rpm, which makes the engine especially useful for towing and hauling tasks. The engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, which adjusts its shifts for improved smoothness during hauling or low-speed trail driving.
The LX 570 has a rugged body-on-frame construction that has the durability for extensive towing, hauling, or off-roading. The design has also been adapted to provide ride smoothness, suppress road noise, and provide better overall comfort over rough roads. The front suspension can travel nine inches for tough off-road situations, and a variable gear ratio steering system has just 2.4 turns lock to lock for off-road maneuverability yet provides good highway stability.
Also useful is a feature called Crawl Control, which moderates the throttle in challenging off-road situations so as to maintain a steady, slow speed--allowing the driver to focus on steering around the obstacles. Another similarly useful device is Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), which helps keep the vehicle from moving backward when starting on a steep, slippery slope.
Full-time 4-wheel drive helps provide the traction needed for either slippery winter roads or challenging off-road terrain. The system uses a Torsen limited-slip center differential to normally send 40 percent of power to the front wheels, but it can direct more to the wheels with better grip as needed.
Electronic stability control is standard and works in conjunction with the 4-wheel drive system. The anti-lock braking system is also tuned for both on- and off-road situations and is designed to help reduce stopping distances on sand or gravel. In terms of passive safety, the LX 570 comes with ten standard air bags, including seat-mounted side air bags for the front two rows of seating, side curtain air bags that cover all three rows, and active front headrests that help reduce the chances of whiplash.
