The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Lexus LX 570 remains one of the biggest, bulkiest luxury SUVs you can get—yet with the big Land Cruiser's world-proven toughness, it's no poseur. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class wraps up to seven people in luxury, and offers a pleasant ride with either diesel fuel economy or willing gasoline power.
