The LX 470 is the grandest of luxury sport utes from Lexus. Today the Japanese luxury brand announced that an all-new LX will debut at the New York Auto Show in a few weeks. Dubbed the LX 570, the vehicle's new nomenclature clearly indicates a larger 5.7L V8 will replace the current model's 268-horsepower 4.7L V8. The 5.7L V8 will be the largest engine ever offered by Lexus, eclipsing in displacement even the 5.0L V8 producing 400 horsepower that will be used in the upcoming high-performance IS-F. We doubt the new LX 570 will produce as much as 400 horsepower, but expect something in the mid-300 horsepower range with torque even more abundant.

The current LX (shown above) is based on the more pedestrian yet still capable Toyota Land Cruiser, so one would assume that the debut of an all-new LX will also preview an upcoming replacement for the Cruiser, as well. We'll have to wait until we hit the show floor in New York for more details, which happens the first week of April.

      Wow, seems we have some bitter domestic make fans on line today.

      And who on earth is the crack pot saying, "you could buy a Rover for that price?" Clearly, you have never owned a Rover...perhaps the worst ownership experience I have ever had. Un-reliable does not begin to describe those vehicles. And lets not even talk re-sale I am embarassed to tell how much I lost when I was taken in by the romantic lines and cool looks of a Range Rover two years ago. And, for those of you that think you need something that looks cool or has the "marque" to get lucky now and then you will be glad to hear I still get lucky once in a while in my stodgy LandCruiser!

      Don't beat them up just because they are on top of the world. Toyota will be just fine...

      Bob, it looks like the old one because it is the old one. We don't know what the new one looks like yet.

      well, I guess they may as well keep it alive since the warlords of africa need its non-drag queen and capable brother the landcruiser to mine blood diamonds and slaughter villages.

      The LX likely won't carry any weight for sales anywhere but in North America where it will set golf course gravel roads on fire. Lord knows the 556 sold in america as of the end of Feb are making things sizzle.

      i think that the lexus LX models are not entirely necessary for worldwide luxury motoring, but the land cruiser, as a vehicle with a reputation and a dedicated customer-base, is EXTREMELY essential worldwide. Think of how many other countries, in Africa, the Middle east, and basically everywhere else, (not to mention the UN itself)that use the Land Cruiser as a government vehicle. It really has become a sort of modern Land Rover in its widespread use by countless countries with rough terrain that may need a capable off-road vehicle.

      This hit will spread like ants in Middle-East (Saudi Arabia and Gulf countries especially) because the sort of low gas prices in some countries unlike the North America market place which will not be attractive due the over-priced gas.

      To be totally honest I don't expect such a good looking SUV from Lexus but I love all it's technology and reliability.

      I have a 2000 TLC with 75k miles on - like the others above, I figure I can keep the thing for at least 50k more miles....I always buy quality high-end cars and keep them - my 2000 911 Cabo is flawless with 50k on it, my wife's 2003 M3 Cabo is also timeless.. the only issue I have is with her 2006 Volvo XC90 v8 - what a mom mobile POS.... When it comes time to repalce my TLC, I will gladly do so with another TLC or LX570
