Lexus' luxurious off-roader LX 570 will gain greater specification and a new look for 2010.
All LX 570 models will receive upgrades to the navigation and user interface, USB input for portable media devices, a 12-volt socket in the cargo areas, headlamp washers and updated privacy glass in the rear of the vehicle.
The LX 570 Prestige model will be replaced by a Sports variant, which gains a centre console cool-box, rear seat entertainment system and roof rails.
Sports Luxury models will also have a new look, with the addition of 10-spoke, 20-inch alloy wheels and a sports body-kit featuring front and rear aero spoilers.
Visual upgrades to the Sports Luxury models give the LX 570 a lower, muscular appearance, and are designed to stand out both on and off-road.
Lexus chief executive Tony Cramb said that the upgrades to LX 570 will increase the appeal of a model already highly regarded for its off-road ability and safety.
"Upgrades to LX 570 will add further appeal to those wanting to take their Lexus off-road, with Sports models becoming the premium Lexus off-roader.
"For those who want the space and safety offered from LX 570, Sports Luxury models will feature greater visual muscle, and the safety of side, front and reversing cameras - vital in negotiating the suburban jungle," said Mr Cramb.
The LX 570 will carry a recommended retail price (RRP)* of $149,500 for the Prestige and $165,400 for the Sports Luxury.
