The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Lexus LX 570 is not as distinctive as a Range Rover or an Escalade, but it is loaded with worthwhile technology. The 2008 Infiniti QX56 misses the mark for a lot of practical reasons, but it can tow a Chris Craft in high style.
