The updated Lexus LX 570 follows a recipe that’s now been left behind by most auto makers but is that a good reason not to recommend it? Motor Trend reviews the most expensive Lexus in their latest episode of Ignition to find out.

This is the most expensive car you can buy off a Lexus dealership, a huge, body-on-frame luxury off-roader that weighs the same as the moon and promises to be comfortable whether you’re driving across the highway or crawling up a big pile of rocks.

There are many genuine off-roaders left in this world, much less those who can actually do some serious dirt work and keep you in comfort inside a leather-cladded cabin with most of the premium bells and whistles you want.

Lexus has updated the LX 570 for the 2016 model year, redesigning the exterior significantly and pairing a more modern eight-speed automatic gearbox to its 383hp 5.7-litre V8 petrol engine.
