Taking a long, hard look at the 2016 Lexus LX 570. Lexus is on a campaign to change its image, and the LX 570's new sheetmetal clearly indicates this truck ain't no wallflower. The LX 570 is a truck, a great big one in fact. There's a 383hp V-8 under the hood, nestled between the rails of an actual frame. Also bolted to that frame is a bunch of beefy, hardened, off-road parts that supposedly make the LX quite capable off-road. But not too many people take these things into the desert or up rocks. Let us see how good it is.
