LOS ANGELES – Nov. 29, 2017 – Less will certainly mean more to some Lexus LX 570 customers for 2018, as the brand augments the traditional three-row model with a new two-row version designed to carry more cargo for any adventure while pampering five people onboard. With a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $84,980*, a new mono-spec trim level gives customers added value and the luxury of simply choosing exterior and interior colors.

Toyota, Land Cruiser, Overland Expo, Overland Journal, Expedition Portal, Overland, travelFor more than two decades, the full-capability Lexus LX has excelled at combining authentic, rugged go-anywhere capability and high towing capacity with the brand’s renowned luxury and smooth on-road demeanor. Until now, the LX has been offered exclusively as a three-row luxury utility vehicle with seating for up to eight. When some customers indicated they did not use the third row and expressed a preference for more interior cargo space, Lexus responded.

Such customers, including smaller families, empty nesters and multiple-vehicle households, are more likely to travel with fewer passengers but more carry-on gear. Among the activities they enjoy are skiing, cycling, kayaking and golf, along with such hobbies as nature photography and antique collecting. Some also wanted more versatility for carrying their dogs.

Without the third row seat, the new LX 570 two-row model offers 50.5 cu. ft. of carrying space behind the middle row, versus 44.7 cu. ft. for the three-row model. For added versatility, the LX 570 two-row features a standard roof rack with rails.

One Comprehensive Trim Level

The two-row model features the same standard luxury equipment as in the three-row model, including leather-trimmed interior, four-zone automatic climate control, power tailgate, moonroof and 20-inch wheels.

Standard Intuitive Park Assist and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps to enhance visibility in a variety of situations where the driver might not be able to see potential hazards. The standard Panoramic View Monitor gives the driver “extra eyes” where it’s impossible to see, viewing the surrounding terrain when off-roading and helping view the area around the vehicle (sides, front and rear) when maneuvering in tight spaces. The camera projects the image to the 12.3-inch Navigation screen, which can show several view combinations to help aid the driver. The system makes an invaluable assistant when hitching and maneuvering a trailer.

With Lexus Enform Remote (complimentary for the first year of ownership), the LX 570 owner can remotely view and control certain aspects of the vehicle using a mobile app for iOS and Android devices. The app can lock or unlock the doors, remote-start or stop the engine or climate control, locate the vehicle in a parking lot, set up guest driver monitor and more.

For peace of mind on every drive, Lexus Enform Safety Connect (complimentary for the first 10 years of ownership) provides emergency calling capability to Lexus Enform response centers, which are available 24/7/365. Lexus Service Connect (complimentary for the first 10 years of ownership) can relay the vehicle’s service needs, allowing the customer set up push reminders and alerts.

The standard subscription-free Lexus Enform App Suite provides voice-enabled apps that let you search the internet for local listings, stream music, check fuel prices and much more. Lexus Enform Destination Assist (complimentary for the first year of ownership) offers convenient 24-hour access to live destination assist.
