2008 Lexus LX 570 Prices Announced

2008 Lexus LX 570

The newly-redesigned 2008 Lexus LX 570 will start at $73,800, according to a dealer announcement that made it’s way to Autospies.

It’s a $6,405 jump up from the outgoing LX 470, but there’s some significant new features (Crawl Control and front/side cameras, for example) that no doubt added to the production cost.

Also included in the dealer announcement were some journalist comments on the LX 570:

At the recently conducted Long Lead Press Preview, journalists commented on the ride and comfort, improved performance and capabilities of the new LX 570.

  • “It has a very nice ride. Sometimes you forget you’re in an SUV”
  • ”… almost like driving an LS.”
  • “Great suspension. Really impressive. A big improvement from the LX 470.”
  • “Off-road ABS is a nice feature.”
  • “The Crawl Control is pretty cool… couldn’t believe how easily it went down the steep hill…”
  • “The LX really is a capable vehicle, it can do everything you said and go anywhere.”

Nothing all that surprising, but interesting nonetheless.
