(November 13, 2022) In an automotive related discussion with a friend the subject of her 2018 Lexus NX 300 came up. We asked if she is shopping a new Lexus and has she considered the restyled 2022 NX? "I don't see any need for a change now, my Lexus has all the stuff I want," she said. "But, we replied, the new NX has updated styling and a load of new tech compared to your nearly five-year-old car."

(October 9, 2022) Neighbors down the street asked to sit in our 2022 Lexus ES 300h press vehicle after doing a slow walk-around. They have been Toyota Avalon owners for the past decade, but knowing that Toyota is discontinuing the sedan, they were looking for a suitable replacement within the Toyota family. From the sound of their conversation it seems the Lexus ES is their first — if not their only — choice.

2022 Lexus LC 500 Convertible



HERNDON, Va. — These are, as you’d know and anyone can tell you, anxious times. Whether your anxiety is political or economic, over here or over there, our shared angst can be pervasive to the point of suffocation. And at a moment when people still lose jobs, go to bed hungry and die — by the thousands — of Covid, the Lexus LC 500, especially as a convertible, might seem little more than an irrelevant and expensive bauble.

(July 24, 2022) The all-new 2022 Lexus  LX 600 enters the marketplace as a big and luxurious three-row vehicle for those who value a soft ride, ultra-quiet interior, most of the safety and convenience technology available — and the ability to go far off road. It's the king of the SUVs in the Toyota/Lexus stable replacing the long-running LX 570 and helps fill the void created by the departure of the Toyota Land Cruiser from the North American market.

2022 Lexus GX Black Line



PHOENIX — The 2022 Lexus GX SUV is a throwback vehicle can be traced back some two decades, all the way to 2002; the generation tested here dates back to 2009. Since that time, the GX has received very modest tweaks, getting the brand’s identifying spindle grille in 2013, and modest changes for 2020 such as an updated spindle grille, triple beam LED headlamps, the addition of two rear USB ports, a new exterior color and new interior trim choices.

(November 21, 2021) The Lexus RX 350 continues to be the luxury segment's hottest selling crossover SUV perhaps because of its relaxed and comfortable characteristics — attributes luxury customers demand —and its ability to get from point A to point B without drama in a hushed interior environment loaded with much of the modern technology offered by automotive manufactures these days.

(November 14, 2021) We have never given the mid-sized Lexus ES sedan much of a thought in terms of a purchase. Yes, we have liked the ES through the years and praised its quiet interior, refined ride and its very acceptable performance from a healthy V-6 engine. Our likability quotient has changed just a bit after a week behind the wheel of a 2021 ES 350 F Sport.

(August 19, 2021) Last year we drove and tested the 2020 hybrid model of the Lexus flagship LS sedan and noted few changes since it was redesigned for the 2018 model year. That redesign was flush with the style, substance and presence expected for a top-tier luxury sedan, with evidence that the Japanese automaker went to great lengths with state-of-the-art advanced technology throughout the vehicle.
