Based on some rumors, the new 2023 Lexus LX 570 could continue its production alongside the recently introduced LX 600 model. We got some renderings of this SUV, and the manufacturer will finally make the next-generation model more attractive. The upcoming SUV will feature a new grille, better aerodynamics, and design that will be enhanced with a dark titanium hue.
If you didn’t know, the last model that was significantly redesigned was released in late 2008, which was 14 years ago. We also expect the forthcoming SUV to be powered by the new hybrid powertrain, which should bring more power and efficiency to this model.
2023 Lexus LX 570 Redesign
Like the LX 600 model, the new 2023 Lexus LX 570 features the same boxy design, but it could get different bumpers. Many believe that this model will look more closely like the new-generation Toyota Land Cruiser.
Lexus’ current design language will probably evolve, so we’re expecting to see softer angles, which should contribute to a more controversial look. However, the spindle grille will remain much the same, meaning you’re not going to mistake this SUV with other models. We also noticed that the rendered model was wearing more chrome accents and tires that are more street-oriented.
Inside, the forthcoming 2023 Lexus LX 570 will surely look better than before. Like the LX 600 model, the LX 570 offers up to three rows of seats. In general, you can maximally fit seven people, as opposed to the LX 600, which could sit up to eight.
Based on rumors, the upcoming SUV will get the same tech treatment inside as its bigger brother. That means we can expect to see the next generation 12.3-inch upper screen paired with a 7-inch lower screen. According to Lexus, the upper screen displays traditional functions such as navigation and media, while the lower screen handles climate-control. If that happens, it would be big news, given that Lexus’s old system was critiqued very much lately.
2023 Lexus LX 570 Powertrain Specs
Beneath the hood, the 2023 Lexus LX 570 will probably come with a new hybrid setup. Many believe that the next-generation could use the same system as the upcoming RX450H. The RX 450h/RX 450hL models are both hybrids, and the manufacturer added three electric motors to their 3.5-liter V6.
According to Lexus, one motor is on the rear wheels, while another joins the V6 to deal with the fronts. Thanks to that, this SUV comes with all-wheel drive as standard, and it produces 308 horsepower. However, a third electric motor handles the stop/restart system, acting as a generator. As for the transmission, Lexus used an automatic transmission continuously variable variety.
When Can We Expect the 2023 Lexus LX 570?
At this moment, the manufacturer didn’t reveal any information regarding the release date and price of the new Lexus LX 570. Surely, we are expecting some pricing jump over the previous generation but nothing significant at all. The current 2-row/5-seat version starts at $86,500, plus a $1,295 destination charge.
However, going for a 3-row/8-seat setup, the price will jump to $91,500. These prices put this model in line with SUVs such as the Range Rover, Audi Q7, Cadillac Escalade, Infiniti QX80, and Volvo XC90.
