2014 Lexus LX 570 vs. Its Competition

2014 Lexus LX 570 4WD 4-door Angular Front Exterior View
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Lexus LX 570 is an expensive, bulky way to haul your entire family to the most remote places on the planet.

There are several alternatives can accomplish the same task, oftentimes with more grace and less money involved.

While the Range Rover may only have room for five passengers, it's more capable off-road, more entertaining to drive on the highway, and more luxurious all the way around.

The Cadillac Escalade is near the end of its product cycle in its current design, but it offers more interior space and the option of a hybrid model.

The Infiniti QX80–previously called the QX56–is a relative bargain for its luxurious interior and on-road driving dynamics, but it doesn't possess as much off-road heritage as the LX.

The Mercedes-Benz GL is one of our top choices, especially in diesel guise, for its interior comfort and composed driving dynamics.

And, you should at least consider the Toyota Land Cruiser, which shares most of its components with the LX 570, offers arguably better off-roading prowess, and costs around $10,000 less.
