2020 Lexus LX Ratings & Reliability
This luxury SUV is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, itself quite plush and upscale. Power comes from a strong 5.7-liter V8 shared with the Tundra pickup. This engine got only 14 mpg overall in the Land Cruiser we tested. The LX has a comfortable ride and a quiet, plush, and well-assembled cabin. Handling is lackluster but ultimately secure, and the LX is very capable off-road. Like the Toyota, the LX has an off-road crawl mode that manages throttle and braking over rough 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. The Lexus Safety System+, which includes automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning, is standard. A five-passenger version is available.

2008-2018
2008 Redesign Year
Lexus LX 2018
Lexus uses a rebadged, more upscale Toyota Land Cruiser for its top-trim SUV. Dubbed the LX, it is one of the few SUVs that manages to be both capable off-road and civilized on pavement. It has a slick powertrain, a comfortable ride, and a quiet, nicely appointed cabin. Added features over the Land Cruiser include a height-adjustable air suspension and a power-adjustable steering wheel. Five adults can fit quite comfortably and cargo space is generous. The 2008 redesign brought a 5.7-liter V8 engine and a power folding third-row seat, which unfortunately consumes cargo room. Our tested Land Cruiser only got 14 mpg overall, but was impressive off road. The crawl mode manages throttle and braking over tough terrain.  A five-passenger version is new for 2018.
