This luxury SUV is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, itself quite plush and upscale. Power comes from a strong 5.7-liter V8 also found in the Tundra pickup. It has a comfortable ride and a quiet, plush, and well-assembled cabin. Our tested Land Cruiser got only 14 mpg overall but was very composed and secure off-road. Like the Toyota, the LX has an off-road crawl mode that manages throttle and braking over tough terrain. The height-adjustable suspension further enables the LX to traverse off-road. But the power-folding third-row seat folds up to the sides, limiting cargo space. 2016 brings a standard eight-speed automatic and blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, while the Lexus Safety System+ is optional.
