TOUGHEST TOYOTA SUV — 2020 Lexus LX 570 vs. 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser: Comparison


What’s going on YouTube? So the Toyota Land cruiser is known around the world is one of the ultimate go anywhere SUVs But as many of you know, there is also a Lexus version which shares the same ultra capable foundation Both also cost very close to $100,000 here in the US. So the question remains which rugged and luxurious Toyota SUV is the best choice Let’s go ahead and find out! Now we’ll go ahead and preface from the very beginning that since these two are related to each other there are more similarities than differences The first thing on the agenda is pricing and equipment While variations in prices don’t really matter as much to people shopping in the near six-figure range. It is still important to recognize that The land cruiser comes in only one variation in the u.s So its price is going to be eighty six thousand six hundred and eighty two dollars after destination The LX starts out more expensive and all the ones that we’ve ever seen come with the luxury package and a few other options Its price out the door is ninety eight thousand nine hundred and twenty-eight dollars therefore in order to be fair We will do a half point per thousand dollars of difference or six points to the landcruiser Nevertheless, as far as styling is concerned they are on totally different planets The landcruiser has its traditional conservative style while the LX is extremely bold in its approach especially with the huge spindle grille The same goes for the headlights which are both LED but styled with two different philosophies And the only scorable difference is that the Land Cruiser has incandescent turn signals instead of LEDs in the front and rear As far as the side and back though, this is where you can start to tell that they are related They have the same body lines but differences in the details The only other style related items to mention are the wheels which are much larger on the LX 21 inches versus 18 s But beyond looks capabilities are very important to these trucks Both ground clearance is measure in at eight point nine inches, but there are two things to keep in mind The LX is large grille does impede on the approach angles compared to the Toyotas by about 10 degrees But the LX has an adjustable air suspension Which allows it to go up and down significantly for everyday use That being said only the landcruiser has a skid plate I do want to point out that the landcruiser only comes in one fully loaded trim in the u.s So that means it comes with all the same stuff as the LX in regards to the mirrors and safety systems Both have pre-collision braking with pedestrian detection Lane departure alert with steering assist adaptive cruise control blind spot monitoring and auto high beam headlights Next up we have the warranties which are completely different from each other the lexus has longer terms for both basic and power train warranties, but Lexus only does one year of complimentary maintenance compared to two with the Toyota Finally in regards to max towing the landcruiser can handle 1,100 pounds more weight But that pretty much sums up the exterior So now let’s see which cabin has the most luxurious experience before we take them out on the road So walking up to the vehicles both are obviously going to have smart entry systems and the ability to remote start via the respective applications and Then once inside the interiors, they are pretty different in designs. Just like the exterior on The Toyota we have the terracotta brown interior finished in high-end semi-aniline leather The Lexus also uses the same semi-aniline leather finished in this case in a beautiful red called Cabernet As Far as the seats themselves the LX includes extra thigh extension in addition to the heating ventilation and three-person memory seating Now obviously they cost similar amounts of money and are related so both cabins are quite nice However, the LX definitely has a number of nicer touches It has more leather aluminum and wood throughout which make it feel like the more special place As far as the gauges they are nearly identical but the LX does have an additional head-up display Of course it does pretty much go without saying that both have power adjusting heated steering wheels with leather and wood Storage likewise is basically identical between the two including the cool boxes and the wireless phone charger When I shift into reverse both have 360 degree camera systems with active trajectory and They’re next to the shutters are a ton of different buttons all regarding the off-road systems Now this stuff is mostly the same between the two models. However, the lexus does have an electronic parking brake and Now that brings us to the audio let’s go ahead Both are great but to my ears the LX has the edge The next thing to look at up the dashboard are the climate controls Now even though they look vastly different both are for zone automatic However, Lexus fits all the controls into physical buttons, which is something Toyota didn’t manage to do Now digging into the displays themselves both have pros and cons Obviously the Lexus is twelve point three inch display is significantly larger than the Land Cruisers eight inch one But keep in mind there is no touchscreen ability in the LX Neither of them have Android auto or apple carplay at this point Ended finally ending the front part of the cabin both have regular sized moon roofs Now checking out the rear seats you will see a number of similarities but also some differences in the features First off space is pretty much identical as expected and then both of them have heated seats and two zones of climate the few differences though are the sun shades and better seats that have both power adjustment and ventilation and the Lexus and As far as the third rows again both are the same as far as measurements but in this case also the features Moving around back both have the weird two-part tailgate design And once they open up after a considerable amount of time, they have the same amounts of cargo capacity The one important thing to note though is that the land cruiser doesn’t have a power third-row which makes folding the seats more of a pain All righty, so that’s it for the interiors now, let’s go ahead and take them out for a spin So as you’d expect driving these two siblings does bring about similar though not identical responses First of all, since they have the same powertrains acceleration feels the same in both All right, so I’ll first taking off here in the 2020 Lexus lx570 Definitely we have plenty of power. This is Mechanically related to the land cruiser that we just drove About a month ago. I don’t ya bout a month ago. So Of course in the same way that that Operated we do have just this big burly v8 onboard All right, so first taking off in the 2019 Land Cruiser This is this is a really big SUV It does feel big. It definitely feels big but the power does feel adequate for something of this size I’m 380 horsepower and a lot of vehicles would actually make it quite fast This is not fast for sure, but like I said, it does feel adequate But I do really like the sound of it giving an old-school v8, you know It has a very raspy sound to it and a lot of people really like that, especially in these big SUVs Both also have eight-speed automatics and full-time four-wheel drive systems and as far as handling is concerned these trucks both have a large heavy feel and the way they stare and In the way that their body responds to movements The only important difference in the way they perform on the road is that the landcruiser has Significantly more nosedive when braking since the LX is adaptive suspension is able to compensate better Now the shocks are you know Off-road soft so you’re gonna feel that when you brake. Yeah and accelerate there is considerable Nosedive as well as tail dive but of course that is the trade-off you make for the Capability you have such crazy articulation when you’re off-road at all the different wheels and You know you’ll get used to it I Drive a sedan so that’s why I’m definitely noticing it versus the Land Cruiser It is important to remember that this comes with an air suspension so While I probably will still say the words old school many times during this test drive It’s not the same level of old school as the Land Cruiser It does feel different One of those things is the ride is smoother and the way that it kind of handles things It I can definitely tell that so far. It’s been a lot less Bouncy. Oh, yeah You know, so it’s a little bit more button-down It behaves more like a traditional like large luxury 3-row You know like an Escalade if you got in an Escalade and they got in the Land Cruiser you’d be like what is going on But you know this kind of behaves pretty much like those other cars and it is worth noting that with the air suspension You know that road we were just on is so so rough and we’ve been on it in like a hundred different cars So we definitely know that it’s a rough road and it almost makes you forget about how rough it is Just this car being that smooth and comfortable And finally fuel economy is equally bad Well guys that’s what we are going to finish up this comparison video as you can probably tell these two body-on-frame SUVs have a lot in common, but the a like simply offers more in terms of features At the end of the day what it is really going to boil down to is your personal tastes?

  1. First! Let’s GOOO!!! 😀

  2. Thanks to Lexus And Toyota Subscribe To Car Confections!

  3. I love how old school Toyota is, that is why they are so reliable compared to everyone else.

  4. Lexus looks better the Toyota feels outdated

  5. I love both of them!!! I love the Lexus LX 570 better!!! I saw a Lexus LX 570 at the car show back in October!! Happy new year!!!

  6. Wish I could afford a 9 year car loan

  7. These SUVs are best sellers worldwide except the USA the Land Cruiser ( Prado) has been a main stay amongst the Elite of society worldwide. I hope to own one of these when I'm older than I am now ( will be given to you, if you work for a government in a senior position, you won't have to buy one) Africa, the Caribbean, Asia that's what happens.

  8. These could use a redesign but they're good. The LX is not as good as the Land Cruiser, though. In Doug DeMuro's words, "The Lexus LX570 is a $95,000 Disappointment". Thanks for the video, you guys! Cheers for a new year and new decade!

  9. I rather lease the Lexus for $36,000 3 years

  10. An off road comparison would have been nice. I suspect that the two are similar off road but the Land Cruiser probably has the edge.

  11. Fuel economy is NOT the same because the Cruiser uses regular fuel vs Premium for the Lexus.I do not like the front of the Lexus.They sell TLC's in Africa because they are easier to find parts for than the Lex.Plus,the air suspension is just another thing that can break.I own a 2018 TLC.I could have bought a new LX for only a few dollars more but the thought of going into my garage and seeing its ugly grille every day was a game changer for me.The Land Cruiser is the ultimate stealth wealth machine (along with an E-Class wagon).TLC's Rule !

  12. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Exemplary presentation. Visuals like this running count and split screen is genius. Far too many videotape themselves driving and talking about their vehicles for 30 mins, get upvotes, and think they're a great YT car reviewer.

  14. Great review gentlemen.

  15. You missed 0.5 point for Lexus at 3:47 for higher towing

  16. You two do the BEST car reviews….concise, informative & easy to understand…with a touch of brotherly humor! The lack of blathering is a plus! Some channels have too much chit chat to be able to extract the important information quickly.

  17. Happy newyear !!

  18. I hope you can do review based on nissan patrol

  19. How did the LC start up with 6?

  20. At 35 if I had the option to choose one car from the market to keep for the rest of my life it would be TLC

  21. Toyota doesn't put turbo on this vehicle it's their image vehicle for quality.

  22. I'm in the market for a replacement to my 2017 X5 and both of these are on my short list. I'd just hate to spend $85-100k if the next generation is a year or so away.

  23. Great review loved it

  24. Land cruiser for me! look more strong and old school

  25. Howdy, awesome video as always! Happy New Year and welcome 2020!😸😸

  26. Do the same with lx570 and qx80

  27. Great comparison review guys! Do more of these! Happy New Year guys!

  28. I stopped watching at 7:30.
    For their humongous prices, it's almost criminal that they lack android auto or apple car play!!!

  29. LX for me

  30. Both are great cars but not taking the Lexus off-road good bye rims and tires the Land Cruiser yes its a shame fuel economy on both terrible

  31. I love both, but give me the LANDCRUISER.

  32. Lexus have paddle shifters

  33. Very good visual comparison of both SUVs.

  34. Great review! You should do the infiniti qx60 vs nissan pathfinder.

  35. I drove my sister's Lc while in Honduras visit, My Lx is definitely superior, the headlights are way brighter, ride quality is better, transmission is smoother and faster, and the hydraulic suspension is not offered on the Lc.

  36. This comparison would remind me of another one. How about the Aviator vs Explorer? Happy New Year btw!

  37. All this video proves is that if you have the money get the Lexus because most of the points of the Toyota is from the difference of cost.

  38. I like Toyota with its crappy gas mileage at least takes regular gas not premium.

  39. Happy New Year Drew and Mason, 2020 is here 🙌. Awesome side by side comparison, the LED lights on the front end of the LX570 look amazing. The 570 definitely looks more luxurious and bolder. It's wild to me how tall both SUVs are. Kentucky has no Tesla stores?

  40. dùng chung khung gầm, động cơ tương tự nhau.

  41. Лексус -хорошая машина …

  42. I don't like the Lexus styling and the Toyota has that model name cache with a long history. Great job guys! 😀

  43. The land cruiser is the most handsome SUV currently but the Lex has better interior ergonomics. And no other sound system beats Mark Levinson

  44. Toyota are better at marketing than engineering and good on them. They have 2 vehicles which are pretty much the same cars but, they put more gadgets in the Lexus and charge way more, very much more because well, some will pay much more for something that they think is the badge WHAT!? Merc, Audi, BMW🤔 no just a Toyota and an optioned up Toyota for premium car price.

  45. the interior of the LX look more luxurious and shiny , and i love it .. great comparisson 👍 happy New year

  46. lexus

  47. Last year I was 💯 certain I was buying an LX. I had always owned Toyotas and loved them. I thought it would be a no-brainer. But after test driving it. I didn't like it at all! I really didn't see that coming. And the infotainment center is just awful. Then I drove a Raptor. Fell in love and bought it immediately.

  48. From Việt Nam Lx570 420.000$ Landcruiser same Price….we buy Landcruiser GX/FXR/VX/VXR/VXS from UAE

  49. You forgot to mention the power adjustable 2nd row in the LX compared to the manual adj. in Landcruiser.

  50. nice comparison mate … Lexus wins here for me it has more refined driving and better design as the land cruiser is aging badly it looks old already whereas the lexus looks more modern … thanks for sharing mate

  51. I love lx

  52. the Lexus LX 570 better!!!

  53. Only Toyota I ever owned was a Toyota Yaris.😔

  54. That sound system sounds amazing on my 3/8 inch smartphone speaker.😔

  55. FYI – the Lexus suspension (AHC) is hydraulic, not air, and is very reliable and adjusts dynamically. The Land Cruiser uses KDSS kinetic dynamic suspension system that has a traditional steel spring/shock combo but adds a hydraulic unit that applies pressure to the sway bars to stiffen the response on road and relaxes it off road. I've had both an LX570 and 2016 LC in the past, and they're both very good on and off road. The Lexus suspension is better stock, but the Land Cruiser is far easier to modify. The biggest issue with the Lexus off road is clearance which is significantly worse with the low hanging front and rear bumpers, otherwise they are close to equal with the edge going to the Lexus for comfort and adjustability. Both are some of the most capable, comfortable, durable, and reliable trucks on the planet.

  56. Happy new year

  57. Both are winners! Owned and made by Toyota

  58. Is that fake wood in the 85k toyota lol

  59. These are the same damn cars. One has a Lexus badge and an ugly grill the other is more reasonably priced and not hideous.

  60. I love them both but prefer the LAND CRUISER

  61. Spindle grille???? It’s not spindle like the f sport Lexus models

  62. Given the choices, id go with Toyota…causei dont go for luxury badging whenever possible…..plus i prefer the front end of the Toyota

  63. Those two cars are literally the same I don’t see any difference

  64. LX 570 for me!

  65. The ability to put real tires on the land cruiser without changing stock wheels is a huge plus to me. Also how does the LX lose the touch screen, I thought the LX was supposed to be more luxurious. Lexus makes no sense, they haven't since they axed the LFA. Also the lack of a power third row in the land cruiser makes taking them out much much easier.

  66. Really great cars. Lexus 570 certainly takes the first place. A beautiful and powerful car for real men. Just a dream! Happy New Year!!!

  67. The land cruiser is much better by far,few years ago anyone could have buy the Lexus grille and place it on the land cruiser .

  68. Please do a fully loaded lx! With the sport pakage!

  69. My lx has ZERO steering assist whatsoever… it’s a 2016… is it only the newer ones that have this?

  70. It has AHC which is a hydraulic suspension system. Much more advance than air suspension.

  71. Lexus looks more luxury. The Toyota looks outdated.

  72. Hey guys just one suggestion, can you include the acceleration figures both 0-100 and in gear

  73. I love the two but there's something about the Toyota that makes me love it more. Maybe it's been there for long, tested a,d proven. Maybe it's simplicity as compared to the Lexus. May be it's being used more by politicians, rich guys and cartels. May be I don't know why.

  74. Give me the Land Cruiser. It will look good next to my 3rd Gen 4Runner.

  75. Mechanically orgasmic 💦 👀🤭 😅😂 🤣😎 😋.

  76. Good job, brothers.

  77. But why was disappointed for Lexus LX570

  78. So in u.s.a the landcruiser and lexus lx570 is kinda old but in middle east it is completely different the grills and the tail lights nothing much but the one you guyes have we had those in 2017

  79. Very good video ! Now wait for the release of those cars : 2020 infiniti qx80 platinum. – 2020 nissan patrol nismo : And make a good video about it👌

  80. Toyota land cruiser is 2016
