The Lexus LX 570 squares off against some of the most advanced SUVs on the planet, the most sophisticated of which is arguably the Land Rover Range Rover.
It's overwhelmingly complex, yet provides astoundingly good performance both on and off the road.
Yet it gets expensive—very expensive—with options, and Land Rover isn't known for its reliability record.
The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, meanwhile, delivers S-Class-esque comfort, but some of its interior fittings aren't exactly top-notch.
The Infiniti QX80 is significantly less expensive, but like the LX 570 it's a dressed up version of a rugged SUV sold elsewhere (in the QX80's case, it's the Nissan Patrol sold in some of the world's farthest reaches).
The Cadillac Escalade has long been the segment's bling-tastic model, but the latest variant is way more refined than ever before and it's a legitimate luxury contender.
If it’s an LX for sure, at least drive the Toyota Land Cruiser, which effectively acts like a stripped-down LX with better off-road ability.
