It's hideous!

More power, goals of better on- and off-road capabilities and increased interior room highlight the 2008 Lexus LX 570 premiering in New York. Power, from the 5.7-liter, 381-hp V8 developed for parent company Toyota’s full-size Tundra, jumps 113 hp over the outgoing LX 470.

The Tundra’s six-speed automatic is also part of the new powertrain package. Electrohydraulic suspension and active height control reduce body roll and increase on-road comfort. Off-road abilities should benefit from increased wheel travel, crawl control and multiterrain antilock brakes.

Visually, the LX 570 taps into the Lexus L-finesse design theme for a more refined look, and the eight-passenger interior is 4 inches longer and nearly an inch wider. The LX 570 goes on sale in early 2008.

Not sure about the front. The rest looks reasonable. Front's a bit...ehhh.... But I'll wait for better pics to judge. Can't wait to see the interior. It needs a fold flat seating arrangement.

I just can't picture it infront of a 5 Star hotel as easily as I can see any of its competitors. But It sorta looks Good...

That is the most awful looking 4WD I have ever seen.

I think the biggest mistake they made is only widening it an inch. It's still 2" narrower than it's competition.

Wow, its one after another with the disappointments!

I think that the problem with this vehicle is that Toyota continues to cater too many segments with the same body from entry level NGO Land Cruisers to top of the line Lexus.

Its just wrong!

why? LX is not even sold in most markets.... You want them to develop completly new vehicle for 10,000 sales per year? Thats funny...

It worked great for GX... no reason not to work for LX.

I hope it is not too big... looks like they are talking about making interior bigger, not exterior... If it is not apsolutly huge, I might be getting one when it is released as LC200 in Europe...
