Lexus has long offered a version of the famed Toyota Land Cruiser, the Lexus LX 570. Toyota has now discontinued the Land Cruiser, but more and more people may be turning their eyes toward new or used Lexus models of their favorite SUV.
How do the two cars stack up? Let's take a closer look at a Lexus LX 570 vs. Land Cruiser comparison.
What does the Lexus LX 570 have going for it?
According to AutoTrader, the LX comes with a 5.7L, 381 horsepower V8 engine, powerful enough to do most any kind of off-roading and hauling. And speaking of hauling, it's got towing capability up to 7,000 lbs.
The LX offers many standard features, including navigation, a surround-view camera system, front and rear parking sensors, and more. It also offers quite a few options, including an upgraded leather interior, heated seats, and a climate concierge system, just for starters. If you so choose, you can also upgrade to 21-in. wheels.
In addition, as Lexus of Las Vegas reminds us, the LX 570's interior is almost completely customizable, and you can fold down the third row of seats when you need extra storage capacity. The makers of the LX have really thought through many small details to make your ride as pleasant as possible.
What does the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser offer?
The Land Cruiser and the LX have basically identical engines, so we won't repeat all the specs on that front here. The Land Cruiser is capable of towing more of a load, however, with a capacity of 8,100 lbs.
In addition to having basically the same engines, the Land Cruiser also comes with the same standard equipment as the LX. As a bonus, though, it also includes a “refrigerated” center console storage box, which is optional on the LX.
Lexus LX 570 vs. Land Cruiser: How do they stack up?
When it comes down to it, it's hard to identify huge mechanical differences between these two high-end SUVs. What tends to set the two apart, however, is their look.
The LX features an expanded 12.3-in. display, for example, as well as a slightly sleeker exterior design. As Lexus of Las Vegas puts it, the LX comes with a "more aerodynamic front-end with its sharp, hourglass-shaped grill."
It's also important to note that the LX comes with a longer car warranty, which covers your vehicle for four years or 50,000 miles vs. Toyota's three year/36,000 mile warranty.
In terms of choosing one over the other for your off-roading adventures, we'd have to say it's a pretty tough call. We'd give the slight edge to the LX, both for its warranty and for the comfort and flexibility of its interior. If you're heading out for a lengthy adventure, you may find yourself appreciating some of the upgrades and extra cargo room, not to mention the option for larger wheels.
Whether you're buying an LX 570, a Land Cruiser, or something totally different, you can't forget about car insurance. While getting quotes is no one's idea of a good time, it's something we all have to do when we get a good car.
