    I’m no prepper, but living near Washington, D.C., it’s easy to evaluate one’s ability to pick up and head elsewhere. So, whether that need comes from rising tides or a full-on civil war, I decided to try something different with this review. Let’s see how this 2024 Lexus NX 350h Luxury AWD might handle a…

    Sometimes, in this business, you see a model name come across your desk and think, “Meh, I already had that.” In this case I just reviewed the 2024 Lexus TX 350 a few months ago. However, this TX 500h F Sport Performance Luxury is a different thing altogether. Well, I mean, it’s the same, but…

    The three-row SUV segment has been known to absolutely print money for automakers, which makes it a bit of a surprise that Toyota hasn’t built more under the Lexus badge. Sure, the big truck-like options like the GX and LX have had that option for some time, and they did cram a 3rd row into…

    Recently, Toyota introduced two new vehicles – the Grand Highlander and the Lexus TX. The Grand Highlander is a slightly longer version of the venerable Highlander, the vehicle that so many have settled for because the significantly more functional Sienna minivan doesn’t match their desirable lifestyles. The Lexus TX is a more opulent version of…

    The electric future is here, and…it’s a mixed bag if I’m honest. I’ve driven all kinds of EVs, more than I can even self-promotingly link here, and unfortunately one of my least favorite was the Toyota B-zed-Four-X-ray. The bZ4X has a terrible name that is hard to remember, and I found the drive uninspiring, the…

    As you all know, I get a lot of crossovers to review. Not a shock considering the popularity, take a look at any parking lot you’re in and I guarantee it’ll be the prevailing body style. Unless you’re in Texas which will be mostly pickup trucks. Lexus doesn’t sell a pickup, but they sell quite…

    The Lexus ES was, at least for a significant period, a bit of a tarted up Toyota Camry. However, while it is true that the first five generations were basically built off of the Camry platform, the sixth generation ES (2013-2018) was really closer to the Avalon XX40 and the Lexus RX than the Camry.…

    I was going to start this review of the latest Lexus IS 350 by pining about my lust for the original IS 300, but then I remembered something. I already wrote about that back in the Autotrader dot com slash Oversteer days. In fact, that article was inspired by a then recent purchase of a…

    It’s easy to see your daily commuter as nothing more than a transportation appliance, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Lexus, once a purveyor of staid beige sedans has been on a streak of producing some adventurous stuff. A decade ago they brought us the LFA supercar, and ever since then it’s been…

    I’ll say this up front, it should be a federal mandate that Nori Green be an option on every new car. Lexus gets it, and when they dropped off this 2022 Lexus LX 600 Ultra Luxury for review I was immediately smitten by the color. This was actually my second Nori Green Lexus loaner, but…
