A new Lexus LX 570 is going to set you back nearly $82k after you add $875 delivery to its $80,930 base price. The luxury version of the Toyota Land Cruiser wears a new Lexus spindle grille, one that's big enough to make Rumplestiltskin proud, and it has revised front and rear fascias among the other upgrades that Lexus says justify its 1.9-percent price increase.

Among the other new-for-2013 features are an updated Crawl Control mode and terrain-select for the all-wheel-drive system, because what Lexus owner doesn't enjoy serious rock-crawling? A new multimedia system with the next-generation Lexus Enform system is also part of the deal, which seems much more in line with real-world customer behavior, as Enform allows drivers to use Facebook and Yelp, among other services.

For those LX 570 buyers who just must have it all, there's also a $1,510 luxury package that adds some higher grade trim and features, and a backseat entertainment system for $2,005.

Toyota only sold 3,167 units of the Lexus LX last year, down by about 20 percent.

Lexus Announces Pricing for 2013 LX 570

TORRANCE, Calif. (Jan. 19, 2012) – Lexus today announced the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the 2013 LX 570 luxury utility vehicle, which will arrive at dealerships in early February with bold new styling, interior enhancements, cutting-edge technology and remarkable off-road capabilities. The LX will carry an MSRP of $80,930, an increase of 1.9 percent or $1,475. The MSRP does not include a delivery, processing and handling fee of $875.

"With all of the enhanced features, the LX 570 offers perhaps the most exciting combination of luxury, on-road smoothness and off-road performance of any vehicle in its segment," said Mark Templin, group vice president and general manager, Lexus Division.

The 2013 LX 570 gets a new look at both the front and rear. The fresh look is highlighted by the Lexus spindle grille. New LED daytime running lights complement an updated headlamp design with new larger fog lamp bezels. Taillamps are also updated, while the rear license plate surround gets a revised look and the tow hitch cover is more integrated. Both front and rear bumpers are refreshed, with the rear bumper protector enhanced by a chrome accent. Turn signals have been integrated into the side mirrors, and wider bodyside moldings sport a new appearance.

The LX 570 is powered by an advanced 5.7-liter V8, four cams, and four valves per cylinder engine with dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). At 383 horsepower and 403 lb.-ft. of torque it is built to handle demanding tasks with remarkable smoothness.

The LX receives an updated Crawl Control feature which provides optimum throttle and brake modulation when maneuvering over rough, uneven or difficult surfaces. The new Turn Assist feature tightens turning circles by adding more brake force to the inside rear wheel. The new Multi-terrain Select also allows the driver to optimize performance by choosing from five types of terrain settings.

The LX interior receives a new multimedia system (with available next-generation Lexus Enform®), a color TFT multi-information display, improved front seat cooling, easy access for the driver's seat, a power outlet for the middle row and unique trims and accents.

With the standard navigation system, LX owners can enjoy a high-resolution multi-media display. The high-resolution screen supports an enhanced map display, with audio, climate and other vehicle information. The navigation system will also have access to the next-generation Lexus Enform® Application Suite, the system that leverages the customers' mobile phone technology to provide a new level of connectivity and information management. Users can conduct local searches through Bing, utilize voice-enabled apps to make restaurant reservations through OpenTable, purchase movie tickets via MovieTickets.com or tap into internet radio services, including Pandora® or iHeartRadio.

Lexus Enform® also gives LX owners the ability to check-in on Facebook, and search for various restaurant and business reviews on Yelp. SiriusXM data services offer information on stocks, traffic, weather, sports and fuel prices. Enform® is supported on iPhone, Android and Blackberry.

The LX offers an optional Luxury Package priced at $1,510 that includes a cool box for beverages, semi-aniline leather-trimmed upholstery with new contrast stitching, a heated steering wheel, new mahogany wood-trimmed door switch plates, a rear-center armrest cover, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats (outboard position only) and Smart Access card key.

In addition to the Luxury Package, the new LX 570 features an available dual screen rear-seat entertainment system with wireless headphones and three-prong electrical outlet, priced at $2,005. This system allows two video sources to be viewed at the same time – for instance, one can be used as a DVD player while the other as a game console or audio player.

      Crawl Control mode: COOL, perfect for crawling through bumper-to-bumper traffic on your daily commute or the crowded Cosco parking lot. And all that space and tonnage will be perfect for bringing those packages home.

      May not be a "Sports Utility Vehicle" in the traditional sense but CTS-V Wagon fits those three criteria to the point and is much cheaper than this thing and looks stunning. Stupid consumers in this nation always been anti wagon, when will they ever learn.

      If you're spending $81K and not getting every available option, you're doing it wrong!

      With here being a Range Rover, a QX56, an Escalade, heck even a cheaper Land Cruiser, why would someone buy this?

        To have Lexus badges instead of Toyota? Getting vehicle service at a Lexus dealership instead of slumming it with Yaris and Corolla owners in a Toyota dealer waiting room? Many rich people apparently prefer to spend the extra $10k - $20k for the LX over the Land Cruiser just to have a Lexus.

      I always thought the new GX and Sequoia were monster SUVs and I see them everywhere. I don't understand how people drive these massive things much less in a crowded city setting. I can see if you live out in the middle of no where but most of these these things are clogging up city streets and parking lots. The use of these monster SUVs in this country is a joke, especially these people complaining about gas buying something like a LX that costly and massive only to go get groceries from the market five miles down the road. It does not help either when the drivers can barely see over the steering wheel of one of these monsters.

        I don't care what people buy but I do pass judgement on the fact that none of these will ever go even remotely off road.

        It also doesn't help when it's usually a woman yapping on her cellphone, among other things to remove her focus from the road, that is found driving these behemoths.

        That is a consequence of fuel being so cheap, many consumers can brush it off as a consideration when they buy their transportation.

      of little consequence, it can go up by 10 grand for all i care, why would anyone buy this? so you can better block other road users view/ sight?
