2014 Lexus LX Overview

Is the 2014 Lexus LX a Good Used SUV?

The Lexus LX 570 is a very good luxury large SUV. It has a potent engine, a comfortable ride, and the ability to conquer rough terrain. Still, it exhibits too much body lean through curves, and cargo space is limited. Total ownership costs are also a bit high for the class.

Used 2014 Lexus LX Performance and Interior

A 383-horsepower V8 engine powers the 2014 Lexus LX, which has more than enough get-up-and-go on the highway. All models come with a six-speed automatic transmission that performs quick and smooth shifts. Light steering helps aid maneuverability, but this vehicle has a large turning radius. The LX soaks up road imperfections, but it suffers from occasional body lean when corning. The standard adaptive variable suspension’s sport mode makes handling a little bit tighter. The LX may not have the strongest brakes, but it has plenty of off-road features, such as Crawl Control and Multi-Terrain Select. Crawl Control maintains your speed while off-roading, so you can focus on navigating what’s ahead of you. Multi-Terrain Select offers five different driving modes to provide the best traction control for the terrain around you. It delivers 12 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway, which is a low for the class.

Power-adjustable and heated front seats, leather upholstery, and wood trim are standard, giving the LX’s interior a sense of refinement. It seats eight people in three rows. The first two rows have good head- and legroom, but the third row is best left for kids. The infotainment system has an easy-to-use touchscreen, and some LXs come with a remarkable 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system. Nonetheless, cargo space is limited, and cars like the long-wheelbase Cadillac Escalade offer much more room. Folding the third-row seats increases cargo space, but they fold to the side and intrude on usable storage room. There are two sets of car-seat LATCH connectors in the second row outboard seats.

Standard features include a nine-speaker audio system, quad-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, satellite radio, driver’s seat memory settings, a moonroof, a power liftgate, push-button start, navigation, voice recognition, and HD Radio. You might find a 2014 Lexus LX with cooled front seats, heated middle seats, a heated steering wheel, and a cooled center console bin.

Should I Consider Another Used LX?

The 2014 LX 570 is part of a generation that started in 2008. The 2013 LX underwent an interior and exterior refresh, and it received an upgraded infotainment system. There are no major changes for the 2014 model year, so you’ll likely save money by going with a 2013 model. The 2015 LX adds standard Siri Eyes Free voice recognition.

Which Used Lexus LX Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Lexus LX comes in one trim, which has plenty of features for most buyers. Yet, when the LX was new, there were a few packages available. This means that you could find a model with niceties like cooled front seats, heated rear seats, and a 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system.

The LX gets the highest reliability score possible, but you still might consider a certified pre-owned model. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Lexus extends its original new-car warranty to cover six years or unlimited mileage. Lexus puts its CPO vehicles through a 165-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Lexus warranty page carefully.

2014 Lexus LX and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Lexus LX or 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser?

The 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser isn’t too different from the LX 570. Both SUVs have top-notch interiors (slightly nicer in the LX), off-road ability, and potent engines. The Lexus LX has a higher reliability rating. Both models have similar passenger and cargo space as well as low fuel economy estimates. Given the Lexus’ higher cost, the biggest decision you’ll have to make is whether you’re willing to spend the extra money for a luxury brand name.

Which Is Better: 2014 Lexus LX or 2014 Lexus GX?

The 2014 Lexus GX is a luxury midsize SUV that performs better in off-road settings than on paved roads. In contrast, the LX has a good balance of on- and off-road comfort. The LX 570’s engine is stronger, but the GX 460 has slightly better fuel economy estimates (15/20 mpg city/highway). Both SUVs have good reliability scores. However, the LX has eight seats to the GX’s seven, and the LX has more cargo space. The GX costs a lot less. If you can do without the extra space and plan to spend a lot of time off road, go with the GX. Otherwise, the LX is the better vehicle.

Which Is Better: 2014 Lexus LX or 2014 Cadillac Escalade?

The 2014 Cadillac Escalade shares much in common with the LX, but the Cadillac tends to cost considerably less. Both cars have high-level reliability ratings, deliver comfortable rides, and are fit for off-roading. The Escalade has stronger brakes, more cargo space, and a roomier second row than the LX. Both vehicles are good, but price may prove to be your deciding factor.
