2010 Lexus LX Overview

When it was new, reviewer comments summarized the Lexus LX as a “utility player,” in that it is a good all-around vehicle that can handle pretty much anything thrown at it. Part luxury vehicle, off-road machine and comfortable family hauler, the LX is matched by few others. 

Under the hood, the LX features a 5.7 liter V8 engine that most reviewers found to have plenty of power. Full-time four-wheel drive is standard, as is an adjustable suspension and vehicle height control, all of which aid in off-roading. The LX gets 12/18 mpg city/highway, which is a bit below its most fuel-efficient rivals. Maximum towing capacity is 8,500 pounds, and maximum cargo capacity with all rear seats folded is 83.1 cubic feet.

Reviewers generally felt that the LX’s interior is luxurious and comfortable, but some noted that the LX doesn’t distinguish itself enough its platform mate, the 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser. The seats were praised for being comfortable, aside from the third row, which got dinged for feeling cramped. Still, that’s not an uncommon complaint among three-row SUVs. The LX has a long list of standard features that includes leather seats, four-zone climate control, Bluetooth, a nine-speaker stereo, satellite radio, navigation, a power liftgate and a rearview camera. Major options when it was new include front- and sideview cameras, a rear entertainment system and a 19-speaker Mark Levinson stereo. There are few differences between the 2010 LX and the 2008 model, so you may save some money by shopping for an older model.

Other Cars to Consider

If you’re looking for something to take off-road and price isn’t a consideration, be sure to check out the 2010 Mercedes-Benz G-Class as well. It has earned a reputation for its ability to go off the beaten path, as well as for its vault-like construction. Keep in mind that the G-Class can only seat five, so if you need the LX’s additional passenger space, the G-Class might not be the best choice.

Another model to consider is the 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser. While the Land Cruiser doesn’t come with as many standard features as the LX, both SUVs share a number of similarities. The Land Cruiser comes almost as well-equipped, and when it was new, reviewers likened the Land Cruiser to a Lexus with a Toyota badge. If you don’t need the luxury prestige, it makes sense to include the Land Cruiser in your used SUV search.
