New for 2011
A brake override system is available, and there are minor interior and exterior changes.

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:
  • Body-on-frame construction
  • 20-inch alloy wheels
  • Active Height Control can lower or raise SUV
  • Adaptive suspension with three modes
  • 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 second-row bench seat is split 40/20/40, and it comes standard with a power-sliding feature that lets it move forward or backward 4.1 inches. The standard power-operated third row is split 50/50, and its halves fold upward along the side walls. The third row is similar to the current crop of crossovers in that the cushions are rather close to the floor, which can be uncomfortable. Interior features include:
  • Touch-screen navigation system includes trial subscription for XM traffic and weather information
  • Premium nine...

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
