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.
