Thanksgiving is awesome. It’s all about feasting and family, and meant to be spent indulging our annual cravings and watching football. Or better yet? The annual James Bond marathon. That said, family means kids, and sometimes the little ones can turn a supposedly low-stress day into a struggle. Enter the Lexus LX 570.
If you have to go over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house, there’s hardly a better vehicle for the task. Because while it might wear the Lexus badge on its spindle grille, this baby is no soft roader. Far from it. The underpinnings of this handsome three-row SUV come straight from Toyota’s venerable Land Cruiser, a legendarily stout beast that’ll tackle anything you put in front of it. So it doesn’t matter if grandmother lives at the top of a trail mountain goats fear to tread, if you’re driving the Lexus LX 570, you won’t have any trouble getting there in time for turkey and stuffing.
Unfortunately, if you’re one of those folks who dreads quality time with family? You can cross inclement weather off the list of excuses you’re keeping in your back pocket.
But while it might be a tank off road, since it’s a Lexus, the LX 570 also wraps occupants in opulent luxury and is loading in high-tech goodies. So once the kiddos are safely tucked into the back seat, you can pop in a DVD to keep them from killing each other and driving you crazy with the inevitable “are we there yet?” inquiries. There’s even a little fridge to keep their juice boxes cold.
Of course, letting the kids stay glued to the screens can make you feel like they’re missing out. So if you’re so inclined, you can always blast through mud puddles or drift through the snow to give them some real-world stimuli. Watch the video to see us do just that!
From everyone at Team AutoNation and your local Lexus dealer, happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
