2010 Lexus LX 570 Changes

2010 Lexus LX 570

Details on the 2010 Lexus LX 570 have been announced by way of a Lexus Canada press release, and as expected, changes are minimal. Four new features have been added:

  • The latest generation of the Lexus Voice-Activated, Hard Disc-based Navigation System
  • A USB audio input connection
  • The Lexus customizable settings system
  • Privacy glass for the rear hatch

I’m curious about whether the latest version of the non-Remote Touch system will also have the new natural-language voice activation, and the customizable settings system sounds interesting. More details as I get them.

The full press release, including the changes to the standard and Ultra-Premium packages, is after the jump.
