2016 Lexus LX vs. Its Competition

2016 Lexus LX 570
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Lexus LX 570 remains a vehicle that straddles definitions—in a different way than most luxury utility vehicles do.

It's luxurious and cozy, yet possibly capable of getting your family to every corner of the planet.

To that last point, the Range Rover is the LX's closest rival; it 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 on the market.

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class—soon to be replaces by the GLS—doesn't mind getting a little dirty, though it's happier on the pavement than away from it.

And it's always worth keeping in mind that the Toyota Land Cruiser is a near-twin of the LX yet is kitted out to take on the rocks and dirt a bit more easily.
