After a yr’s hiatus, the Lexus LX 570 welcomes the special Inspiration Series trim again to the mannequin line for 2021. Limited to 500 models, the three-row Inspiration Series sports activities a bevy of blacked-out exterior bits. This contains its 21-inch wheels, grille, exterior accent items, and badges. Furthermore, the trim provides black finishes to the fog lights, headlights, and taillights, the latter two of which additionally embrace smoked lenses. While black exterior paint comes normal, a coat of white paint is optionally obtainable.
Inside, the LX 570 Inspiration Series options black leather-based seats with tasteful purple accents. Special ground and cargo mats, in addition to black headliner, spherical out the mannequin. Although tasteful, the blacked-out 2021 LX 570 Inspiration Series appears, nicely, uninspired.
In reality, we’re extra within the updates made to the SUV’s non-compulsory Sport bundle. Introduced final yr, the Sport bundle is totally revised for 2021 and it trades the 2020 mannequin’s questionable grille sample for a glance extra according to that of different autos within the luxurious model’s mannequin line.
Admittedly, those that despise the Lexus spindle grille will nonetheless discover the Sport pack’s up to date mug moderately repugnant. Reworked decrease fascias and a brand new 21-inch wheel design convey much more cohesion to the bundle’s styling for the brand new mannequin yr.
The possibility bundle does nothing to enhance energy from the SUV’s 5.7-liter V-Eight engine. While the massive bent-eight strikes the LX shortly sufficient for day-to-day driving, its 383 horsepower fails to show this heavy off-road-oriented SUV into any kind of “sporting” machine (we recorded a dash to 60 mph of 7.3 seconds from an LX 570 in 2016).
Pricing for the 2021 Lexus LX 570 begins at $87,605 for the bottom two-row mannequin—$170 lower than final yr. Hoping to nab an LX 570 Inspiration Series? Then plan on dropping $100,335.
