2018 Range Rover vs 2018 Lexus LX 570


There's a lot of competition out there for the title of best luxury SUV in 2018. The 2018 Range Rover and 2018 Lexus LX 570 are easily among the top competitors, though. With so many great features packed into each vehicle, it can be tough for consumers to decide which one to drive home as their newest vehicle.

Here's a quick breakdown comparing the 2018 Range Rover vs 2018 Lexus LX 570.

Performance

The 2018 Range Rover comes standard with a 3.0-litre, Td6 Diesel engine that delivers up to 254 horsepower and 443 pounds-feet torque at 2,000 rpm. If that's not enough power for you, there's an option to upgrade to a 3.0-litre Supercharged V6 fuel engine that delivers up to 340 horsepower and 332 pounds-feet torque between 3,500 and 5,000 rpm.

The 2018 Lexus LX 570 comes standard with a 5.7-litre V8 engine that delivers up to 383 horsepower and 403 pounds-feet torque at 3,600 rpm. While these are impressive numbers, it might have been better to use a supercharged V6 engine similar to the one available on the Range Rover. That would have provided comparable performance without making sacrifices in terms of efficiency.

 

The 2018 Range Rover offers up to 19 mpg combined, which breaks down to an estimated fuel efficiency of 17 mpg on city streets and 23 mpg on the highway. These numbers are based on the supercharged V6 engine option. Land Rover has not yet released fuel economy estimates for the smaller engine size, but it can be safely assumed that the smaller engine will deliver somewhat better numbers.

The 2018 Lexus LX 570, on the other hand, offers a combined fuel efficiency of up to 15 mpg. That breaks down to an estimated 13 mpg on city streets and only 18 mpg on the highway. This is largely due to the fact that the LX 570 uses a V8 engine rather than a more efficient supercharged V6.

Pricing

In terms of pricing, both vehicles are pretty comparable. The 2018 Range Rover is available starting as low as $87,350, while the 2018 Lexus LX 570 is slightly less expensive with an entry price as low as $85,380. However, when you consider available features and the amount of money you'll save in the long run due to better fuel economy and overall higher efficiency, the Range Rover easily comes out ahead in terms of getting the most bang for your buck.

On the surface, both the 2018 Range Rover and the 2018 Lexus LX 570 are great SUVs with a lot to offer. Once you take a closer look, however, the 2018 Range Rover stands out as a better overall vehicle, offering more choices in terms of performance and additional feature availability. You really can't go wrong with either vehicle, but if you're looking for the absolute best and the most value for your money, the 2018 Range Rover wins this competition. Test drive one today to decide for yourself if the 2018 Range Rover is the right luxury SUV for you.
