For 2015, Lexus raises the LX 570's multimedia capability by giving it standard Sirii® Eyes Free Mode, which is compatible wîth the iPhone® 4S and iPhone 5 models forward and puts select Apple's Siri technology at your service. Siri lets you call contacts, select and play music from iTunes®, get turn-by-turn navigation through Siri and Apple maps, and much more. In addition, the Lexus Enform App Suite has been upgraded to include iHeartRadio™ 4.0 and adds Slacker for even more music-listening choices. Defining Full Capability
Luxury SÚV drivers that want full capability recognize that the Lexus LX 570 has it. It's an ultra-smooth riding and quiet family vehicle, to be sure, but one that can go places that crossovers cannot. That capability's foundation is high-strength body-on-frame construction, coupled wîth high torque at low engine speeds.
The 5.7-liter V8 engine produces 383 horsepower and 403 lb.-ft. of torque and is teamed to a six-speed automatic transmission wîth standard full-time four-wheel drive. Having 90 percent of peak torque available at just 2,200 rpm not only makes the LX 570 an exceptional vehicle for towing, but also makes it a pleasure to pilot in everyday driving.
Full-capability requires full-time four-wheel drive, and the LX 570 has it wîth a Torsen® limited-slip locking center differential that splits torque 40:60 under normal driving conditions. The Torsen differential responds on the move to changing conditions, adjusting the torque distribution as necessary. On-road, 4WD's traction benefits are seamless, requiring no intervention from the driver. Off-road, the driver can lock the center differential for driving over especially challenging surface conditions.
The 4WD gets support from an array of dynamic support features and technologies. The transmission's driver-selectable low range provides low-speed crawling capability for handling steep off-road hills and uneven terrain.
Low-range capability gets support from Crawl Control wîth Turn Assist and Hill-start Assist Control. On steep hills or while maneuvering over rough, uneven or difficult surfaces, Crawl Control automatically adjusts the throttle and brakes. That eliminates a sometimes nerve-wracking experience for the driver, who can remain focused on §teering.
The LX 570 does the rest, its Variable Gear Ratio Steering providing optimal §teering response in slow, rugged trail driving situations. (On-road, the system enhances directional control). The result is a steady, smooth and even pace. Come to a stop on a hill, and Hill-start Assist Control can prevent the LX 570 from rolling backward when you begin to move forward again.
The four-wheel Active Traction Control system (A-TRAC) helps to control wheel slip, and, using the Multi-Terrain Select system, you can match A-TRAC's performance to the prevailing conditions. Selectable modes include Rock, Rock and Dirt, Mogul, Loose Rock, or Mud and Sand.
Trails can be quite narrow, bordered by trees and boulders that might do the LX 570 harm. The Turn Assist feature helps tighten the LX 570's turning circle by applying brake force to the inside rear wheel. The LX 570's Other Personality
Most drivers will spend most of their time on pavement, where the LX 570 always behaves like a Lexus. The vehicle's high-strength construction is also a foundation for the silken ride quality, and it's supported in that role by Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS). This technology continually adjusts the shock absorber damping rates while driving, ensuring optimal comfort even as the road surface changes. With selectable Comfort, Normal and Sport modes, you can tailor the vehicle's ride firmness and comfort.
Make no mistake, even wîth its myriad capabilities, the Lexus LX 570 remains an exceptionally luxurious machine. The 14-way power adjustable driver's seat includes dual-function lumbar and cushion extender, while the 12-way power front passenger's seat features lumbar adjustment. Standard cabin amenities include four-zone independent climate control, navigation system, a rear back-up camera, a power-sliding second-row seat and power-retractable third-row seat.
A higher-riding vehicle, the LX 570 employs one of its off-road technologies, Active Height Control, to make entry and exit easier. The system lowers the LX 570 by about two inches to assist when entering or exiting. Normal height resumes automatically when the vehicle begins to accelerate.
