EDITORS' NOTEBOOK: 2008 Lexus LX570
Read Marc Noordeloos’s comments on driving the 2008 Lexus LX570.
$84,000 for a Lexus truck? Seems a bit high to me. Sure, our long-term Land Cruiser is pricey at nearly $70,000 but I feel like the Lexus is just a slightly more luxurious version. Both vehicles are built with an old-school attitude. Body on frame, solid rear axle, thirsty gasoline V-8 engine, and seats that don’t fold into the floor: I wonder how long vehicles like this will sell. For over $80,000, I’ll take the better looking and better driving Range Rover. Sure, I won’t get a 3rd row seat but at least it’ll drive well.
