New York Auto Show: 2008 Lexus LX 570

The latest Lexus big boy rolled out earlier today, amid cries of "they still make that?" Indeed, they do, and it's getting Toyota's new 5.7-liter I-Force V8 producing 381 horsepower and and 400 lb-ft of torque, which will tug 2,000 more pounds of trailer, at 8,000 pounds. That means all that much more capacity for bringing furs out of cold storage or loads of Cuban cigars hidden in cans of Maxwell House. Still, it does get a new driver-assistance video system that employs exterior-mounted cameras to provide several wide-angle views to eliminate blind spots. Look for it in your local Neiman Marcus parking lot in early 2008.
