The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
It has more power and more luxury features than ever, but the G Class' boxy charm and its hardcore off-road talent remain intact. A luxurious SUV with limited appeal, the Lexus LX 570 isn't quite at home on the range, or on the interstate.
