Overview

It"s no secret that the 2019 Lexus LX is a fancified Toyota Land Cruiser, but there"s plenty to lớn demarcate this luxury-brvà Mã Sản Phẩm from the mainstream version. Lexus takes advantage of the Land Cruiser"s off-road-ready capability & buttresses it with enough premium gear to lớn transkhung it into a luxurious, family-friendly SUV. The slight uptiông chồng in price versus a Lvà Cruiser brings an exterior overhaul, a refined và premium cabin, and a suite of driver-assistance features. The LX"s blover of off-road capability, size XL luxury, và V-8 power sounds remarkably similar to what a Range Rover offers. But despite appearances, this package is not just aging, it"s legitimately old—as its driving characteristics make clear. The LX serves its specific purpose adequately, but there are numerous, more attractive sầu SUV alternatives if your mission requires plushness, a top-shelf image, and three rows of seats.

What"s New for 2019?

Lexus has added three new standard features inkhổng lồ the 2019 LX lineup: Exterior puddle lamps project an image of the Lexus logo sản phẩm, a digital clock is now incorporated inkhổng lồ the driver"s digital display, và Lexus"s Ensize Remote ứng dụng now features smart watch and Amazon Alexa integration. The Luxury package now includes proximity-approach lighting that displays the LX logo on the ground outside the front doors và is now available on the Two Row Mã Sản Phẩm, as are optional 21-inch wheels và a heated steering wheel.

Pricing và Which One to Buy

As the flagship SUV of Lexus, the LX does not have multiple tryên ổn levels; it simply comes well equipped with gobs of standard features. The only choices that customers have sầu are the seating arrangement, the color, và a few extra-luxurious add-ons. We would piông chồng the three-row version, which comes standard with a 12.3-inch infotainment screen with navigation, permanent all-wheel drive sầu with adaptive sầu suspension, và adaptive sầu cruise control. In the mindset of sometoàn thân spending nearly $100,000 on an SUV, we have sầu to assume it wouldn"t be an issue khổng lồ spover a few thousvà more to maximize comfort & luxury. We"d add the Luxury package for its heated & ventilated first- & second-row seats, the optional heated steering wheel, and the Mark Levinson audio system.

Engine, Transmission, Performance, & Towing

Likes: Agreeable ride chất lượng, powerful enough for most drivers, towing capađô thị is good (not great). Dislikes: Slow-shifting automatic transmission, lachồng of front-over stability, engine is noisy when prodded.

To feed the 383-hp 5.7-liter V-8 under the hood, the LX ingests gargantuan gulps of air, an action that is anything but quiet. When you press the gas pedal heavily, the LX gathers itself with a big whoosh before trotting from zero to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. That"s sufficient to escape the "slow" label, but the LX is easily bested off the line by many of its competitors. For comparison, the Mercedes-AMG GLS63 leaps khổng lồ 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds.

The LX is not a luxury vehicle that allows its driver lớn sit baông xã, relax, & glide lớn their destination. Although the ride is comfortable and shrugs off road bumps, the steering is numb and disconnected, và low-speed turns require plenty of arm work. Get the LX up khổng lồ tốc độ on the highway & the laông chồng of steering feel creates a busy drive; small corrections to lớn keep the vehicle on a straight path are frequent. This creates way more work than should be necessary for driving in a straight line. If towing is of serious concern, forget the LX altogether và head lớn the Toyota dealer for the L& Cruiser. It offers an extra 1100 pounds of capability versus the LX"s 7000-pound rating.

Fuel Economy và Real-World MPG

In an LX, every day is Thirsty Thursday. The LX was built on a formula that predated the turbocharged-everything movement, và good gas mileage was apparently not on the checklist in the 2000s. With an EPA combined rating of 15 mpg, it is one of the least efficient vehicles on the market today. The EPA estimates the LX should deliver 18 mpg on the highway, but on our 200-mile highway fuel-economy chạy thử route, we recorded 17 mpg.

Interior, Infotainment, và Cargo

Likes: Fancy interior materials, huge infotainment display, power-folding seats. Dislikes: Lacks key infotainment features, not as spacious as its rivals, cargo space is limited behind third row of seats.

The LX has a huge presence, but the big toàn thân doesn"t necessarily translate khổng lồ a gr& ballroom of an interior. Every row of seating is livable, although none of them offer exceptional space. Large families with growing kids may be better served by the palatial Lincoln Navigator & its class-leading third row spaciousness. The centerpiece of the LX interior is the 12.3-inch infotainment screen that towers atop the dashboard. It is complemented by the cabin"s extremely soft leather, real metal accents, và splashes of glossy wood that—refreshingly—don"t look tacky. The build unique and switchgear are worthy of the luxury label, despite the instrument panel"s somewhat cluttered cluster of buttons.

The LX"s infotainment system is controlled by a flat, joystick-lượt thích controller located lớn the right of the gearshifter. It is cumbersome to operate &, in our experience, difficult to lớn safely use while driving. Regarding the actual infotainment system and organization, we have a generally positive sầu view on Lexus"s Enkhung interface. In the LX, a massive 12.3-inch screen allows for convenient split-screen operation. The center console offers redundant climate controls & features much appreciated volume and tune knobs. A flagship luxury SUV should come standard with every available piece of convenience technology on the market, but the LX has neither Apple CarPlay nor Android Auto. It also does not offer a data connection service for Smartphone Wi-Fi.

Behind the third row, the LX has room for three carry-on suitcases. With the second & third rows folded, we managed khổng lồ fit 29 cases. That number beats the Range Rover by three but the short-wheelbase Navigator managed 33 và the long-wheelbase Lincoln packed a whopping 45 cases.

Safety và Driver-Assistance Features

In addition lớn driving like an absolute tank, the LX has a number of standard driver-assistance features khổng lồ give sầu drivers a sense of security while cruising around in hectic traffic. In addition khổng lồ adaptive sầu cruise control, it features automatic high-beams, front và rear parking sensors, & lane-departure warning. Key safety features include:

Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection Standard lane-departure warning Standard adaptive cruise control

Warranty và Maintenance Coverage

The LX holds an advantage versus the Range Rover và the GLS63 simply by offering one year of complimentary scheduled maintenance & two additional years on its powertrain warranty. Why Lexus offers half as much complimentary scheduled maintenance as Toyota (which offers two years and 25,000 miles) on essentially the same vehicle is a mystery.

Limited warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles Powertrain warranty covers 6 years or 70,000 miles Complimentary maintenance is covered for 1 year or 10,000 miles
