At heart, the 2008 Lexus LX 570 remains an equipment-laden version of the Toyota Land Cruiser, sharing its current 112-inch wheelbase, but now 4 inches longer, at 196.5 inches in overall length.

While it isn’t ugly, the 2008 Lexus LX 570 isn't particularly distinctive, either. In fact, Cars.com says this Lexus 2008 model "resists attempts to make it truly distinctive," mainly due to "its body-on-frame construction." They add, “Something about the shape of the taillights and their chrome surrounds recalls Lincolns.” Kelley Blue Book notes that the company wanted the Lexus 2008 LX 570 "to have a more muscular appearance than the LX 470, so [it] went with the L-finesse design theme, which includes a wider stance and more subtle design lines." For all that, Motor Trend says this 2008 Lexus is "still basically a Land Cruiser in fancy dress," though ForbesAutos likes it enough to write, “its exterior styling is statesman-like, exuding security and stability from every angle.”

Inside, the 2008 Lexus LX 570 has "broken no new ground in terms of materials or design," according to Cars.com; ConsumerGuide says this 2008 Lexus SUV's "cabin decor lacks the richness of other premium rivals, looking more 'upscale Toyota' than true elite class." Here, Edmunds parts ways with the others, describing the Lexus 2008 LX 570's interior as "richly appointed, with exceptional leather and wood trim crafted of Bubinga, an African rosewood often used in private jets and high-end musical instruments."

Conclusion

The 2008 Lexus LX 570 lacks the visual excitement of the Land Rover Range Rover.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
