At sea level, the 2014 Lexus LX 570 can propel you from 0 to 60 mph in 7.5 seconds. Do the same test at a mile above sea level, and that time increases to 9.25 seconds. Hook up a 5,500-pound boat and trailer to the back, and that 0-60 time more than doubles to 18.82 seconds, which is a fine performance, especially when you’re hauling that kind of tonnage in the lap of luxury.
It should be pointed out, however, that the Infiniti QX56 (now called the QX80) does 0-60 in 8.86 seconds solo at a mile above sea level, and 16.53 seconds when towing 5,500 pounds, so there is a faster alternative to the Land Cruiser-based Lexus.
But as Roman Mica says in the video below, towing isn’t all about speed; further, the Lexus LX 570 isn’t all about towing. At the end of the day, it is a fine vehicle that is worthy of your consideration.
