2015 Lexus LX vs. Its Competition

2015 Lexus LX 570
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Lexus LX 570 is a luxurious, cozy, expensive way to carry your family to every corner of the planet.

However, it's not the only option on the market.

The Range Rover can handle more off-road duty, and it's more engaging to drive on the highway.

The new Cadillac Escalade isn't quite the performer away from the pavement, but it's comfortable, gorgeous, and carries a different level of panache.

The Infiniti QX80 is a bargain for the full-size luxury off-road segment, with one of the nicest interiors available.

The Mercedes-Benz GL doesn't mind getting a little dirty, though it's happier on the pavement than away from it.

The Benz also offers a considerably more efficient diesel drivetrain option.

There's also the Toyota Land Cruiser–a less expensive near-twin for the LX–that handles rocks and dirt slightly better than the LX.
