2021 Lexus LX vs. Its Competition

2021 Lexus LX
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Set on an LX 570? Make sure you’ve driven its (relatively) humble sibling, the Toyota Land Cruiser.

The Toyota’s a little cheaper, more useful off-road, and has a less-frustrating infotainment system.

Most buyers are better suited with a luxury SUV like the divine Mercedes-Benz GLS, which lives up to its S-Class of SUVs billing.

If the GLS is too tame for you, consider the wild-looking BMW X7.

The Land Rover Range Rover is as fine an SUV as is made, but its limited cargo capacity, lack of a third row, and massive price tag can make it a tough sell for some.

Don’t forget the Infiniti QX80.

It’s an old design, but it’s also a remarkably decent value given how well-equipped it is.
