Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Exterior The front of the LX 570 is dominated by a large grille and angular headlights. The corners of the SUV are rounded, and the smooth body panels are free of cladding. Even with these styling cues, however, it maintains the general look of a traditional SUV. Exterior features include:

Adaptive headlights and LED taillamps
Interior Leather-trimmed seats and interior surfaces are standard, and the front bucket seats have power-extending seat cushions.

The standard power-operated third row is split 50/50, and its halves fold upward along the side walls.
