2020 Lexus LX vs. Its Competition

2020 Lexus LX 570 equipped with Sport Package
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Lexus LX is one of the oldest plush four-wheelers around, matched only by its Toyota Land Cruiser sibling.

The price difference between the Lexus and the Toyota isn’t great, though nothing says subtle wealth like a Land Cruiser.

Fresher designs abound, and we’re especially impressed with the versatile, refined Mercedes-Benz GLS.

The BMW X7’s styling doesn’t do much for us, but its interior is luxurious.

Land Rover’s Discovery sets the standard for balancing on- and off-road ability, though don’t expect to find one for much less than six figures.

The heavy-hauling and spacious Cadillac Escalade is due for a refresh soon, meaning current models may be heavily discounted.
