While the Lexus LX570 is the flagship SUV in the automaker's lineup, its glory is often overshadowed by the best-selling RX. With proven Land Cruiser bloodlines, and the Tundra's V8 muscle under its hood, the seven-passenger LX competes in the rarefied full-size luxury SUV segment occupied by the Land Rover Range Rover and Cadillac Escalade.

Hard to imagine a more lackluster, aged design than this. Fresh out of 1999.

Oh wait- the mercedes G-wagon : 1979-retro-fantastic.

At least the G-Wagon and the Range Rover have character. This does not, which is why I don't like it.

Range Rover is snappy-looking (at least while peeking out of service bays across the country), but the G-wagon is a design travesty.

I am not a big Range Rover guy, but love the G-Class like DF said, because of its character. This thing is okay, I actually like the 2006-2007 LX-470 the most and the old LX-450's alot better. For this kind of money I could have a Camaro SS and nice Z71 Tahoe. Or a sweet Escalade Platinum.

It sounds as though Toyota has managed to pull a serious badge job with this one.
