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.

After living with an "Infrared" copy for a week we came to the conclusion that the compact 2021 IS350 F Sport is the best looking and most well-proportioned vehicle in the Lexus lineup. Granted, the RC is pretty darn hot, and the high-dollar LC luxury sports coupe has some legitimate bragging rights for modern design. But for instant curb appeal our vote is for the IS350 Sport — particularly in this outstanding shade of red.

(November 1, 2020) It's a stunner. Everywhere we'd go someone would comment on our "great-looking car." The 2021 Lexus LC 500 convertible possesses looks to kill, a stunning conglomeration of creases and lines highlighted by a giant Lexus spindle grille. It's a concept car for the road with a top that opens — and closes — in 15 seconds with the push of a button.

(September 20, 2020) A mix of comfort and track-like performance makes the 2020 Lexus RC F perhaps the perfect choice for someone who desires a luxury-infused daily driver with an attitude backed up by 472 horsepower and cutting-edge styling.

(May 17, 2020) The Lexus RX was introduced in the U.S. 22 years ago and the trailblazing crossover is now in its fourth generation, growing from a compact size into a mid-sized vehicle. Although dozens of copycats have sprung up over the years, and the luxury market is now saturated with crossovers, the RX has been the segment sales leader since its inception. The current generation was introduced in 2016 as the RX 350, and a stretched model was added to the lineup in 2019 increasing its length by 4.4 inches to accommodate a third-row seat.
