Expert Quotes:

12 mpg city, 17 highway
U.S. EPA





The Lexus LX 570 is one of the biggest SUVs on the planet--and it's been around in its neanderthal form, as the Toyota Land Cruiser, for a very long time. That doesn't make its coexistence with the Toyota Prius and Lexus CT 200h any easier, though at least Toyota can reasonably argue that it covers every niche in the market.

With the LX, it covers the rock bottom of the SUV market, in terms of fuel economy, undercut only by a handful of supercars and ultra-high-performance SUV derivatives. The LX 570 is rated by the EPA at 12 miles per gallon city, 17 mpg highway. That puts it near the top of the EPA's Carbon Footprint scale, and—based on our assumption that the majority of energy used during a vehicle's service life will be used through the tailpipe—makes it one of the least green choices you could make, of any vehicle sold in the U.S. today.

Conclusion

Greenies beware: few vehicles match the Lexus LX 570's appetite for gas.

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.
