2008 Lexus LX 570 unveiled at NY
Lexus introduced its redesigned LX 570 full-size luxury 4WDÂ at theÂ 2007 New YorkÂ Auto Show.Â The new LX is the most obvious indication of how the 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser will look like.
The new 5.7-litre V8 has 381 hp,Â with a sequential shift six speed automatic and now hasÂ a hill descent control system built in. There’s also an electro-hydraulic suspension system that reduces body roll by 30 percent in cornering, adjustsÂ height to reduce drag on the highway, and drops it by two inches to ease ingress and egress. A pair of blind spot cameras mounted behind the grille and a third on the underside of the passenger side mirror provide blind-spot vision when manoeuvering in tight spaces.
Inside, the LX cabin is modern, civilized and characteristically quiet. It will also be equipped with an array of luxury amenities including four-zone independent climate control complete with numerous air vents, a power-sliding second-row seat with a 40/20/40 split, a power third-row seat, navigation with BluetoothÂ® capability, a nine-speaker premium audio system, XM Satellite Radio with XM NavTraffic, a real time traffic information service that provides driver alerts regarding accidents, road closings and traffic, front seat power bottom cushion extenders, and much more.
