With its truck frame and off-road prowess, the Lexus GX is kind of in a class of its own these days.
Only the Land Rover Discovery rivals it off the pavement, and even then the Disco is more focused on its high-tech traction control system than its ground clearance and big tires like the GX.
If you're only venturing up a dirt road occasionally, seek out the Audi Q7 for its high-tech interior and terrific driving dynamics.
The Volvo XC90 is the segment's style icon, and it's a decent value to boot.
The BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class have long been considered midsize luxury defaults, and they're still excellent at what they've always done.
