2008 Lexus LX570 Revealed too Bad it has Nothing on the Range Rover

Lexus introduced its new 2008 Lexus LX570 to the world today at the New York Auto Show. The most notable cahnge besides its styling is the name change from LX470 to LX570.

This is due to the enlarged engine that is borrowed from the all-new Toyota Tundra. The engine has 381 hp and  401 lb.ft of torque. The engine is coupled with a six-speed automatic.

Other new additions to the SUV are the blind spot cameras that help with tight spots, a electro-hydraulic suspension that reduces body roll, power sliding rear seats, etc.

Other than the new more powerful engine, this SUV is still boring. For this price range I would rather buy a Range Rover. I was hoping that they would really come out with something striking to compete with the Escalades and Range Rovers, but this just falls short.
