2010 Lexus LX 570 vs. Its Competition

For a less-frills approach to the same basic vehicle, the Toyota Land Cruiser offers about $10,000 in savings over the price of the LX 570, though you'll have to do without the excellent Lexus dealership experience.

Towing is another area where the LX 570 excels, but that bulk and power come at the expense of fuel efficiency, so folks with less need to haul and more demand for mileage might look at the Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTec diesel, rated at a strong (for the class) 17/23 mpg.

For those with a desire for more stylish and dazzling looks, the Range Rover and Cadillac Escalade make good alternatives.

Infiniti's QX56 isn't as refined as the Lexus and can't keep pace with the LX 570's plush interior.

Quick Specs
8.0
The 2010 Lexus LX 570 won't turn heads like a Range Rover or an Escalade, but it is a high-tech and worthy choice.
8.6
The 2010 Cadillac Escalade is big, brawny, and very thirsty; yet with segment-leading performance and unrivaled style, the Escalade is hard to beat.
8.2
8.8
The 2010 Land Rover Range Rover is a bit pricey, but it delivers a lot of value, too.
9.0
The 2010 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class' nimble ride and elegant cabin charm the mud right off a Range Rover.
8.2
The 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser has a stellar, well-deserved reputation for off-road performance. On-road, the Land Cruiser falls far short of fantastic.
