A best friend. A trusty steed. Your favorite vehicle.
The new 2016 Lexus RX looks batshit insane, but you can bet it will still be a very competent luxury CUV like it’s always been, and that everyone and their grandmother will be buying one. Especially their grandmother. What do you need to know before you buy an RX? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in…
The Lexus NX is a compact luxury crossover that looks like the transport for an advanced alien species. What do you need to know before you buy an NX? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
The Lexus LC5 00 was probably the best-looking Lexus we’ve seen for decades, even if I’m still not crazy about that grille and I know they’re hiding Egyptian symbology in the headlights. Now there’s a hybrid version, the LC 500h, and it’s an interesting mix of high-tech and a transmission that seems deceptively retro.
The Lexus RC looks like a sports car, but drives like a limousine. It’s comfort over performance, and the price tag is hard to swallow. What do you need to know before you buy a Lexus RC? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
The Lexus LC 500 was full of surprises at the Detroit Auto Show. Besides the car’s flashy concept-like looks and rear-drive layout, it also shocked us with its naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter, 467 horsepower V8 engine; no turbos, no electrification. Old school! But it turns out Lexus had a hybrid version in the cards…

While my fellow citizens in the northern parts of the US were shivering under their electric blankets, wondering if they would ever get to drive…
Speaking of ‘90s Japanese coupes we like, I never thought much of the Lexus SC back in the day, but it’s grown on me over the years.
For years, Toyota CEO, racer and general speed enthusiast Akio Toyoda has wanted to shake his company’s staid image—in particular Lexus, a brand that runs against top-shelf performance automakers like BMW, Audi and Mercedes. In Detroit yesterday, he fired his biggest shot in that direction with the stunning LC 500…
Look, Lexus. I know you think you’re getting away with something here, but I just want to let you know I know what you’re doing. You thought all us autojournos would be fooled — but you didn’t count on one with a mostly unused Art History degree and several semesters of Egyptology. I got your number, and I’m gonna…
The new Lexus LC 500 isn’t just a new car for the company; it’s a new rear-drive “premium” platform. It does, however, get a very familiar 467-horsepower engine. Besides all that, it looks completely unreal.
This is Lexus’ new LC coupe production car. It looks real wide and real, real good.
The ES is the midsize level luxury sedan from Lexus that doesn’t try too hard to be sexy and sporty like a majority of its rivals, but instead aims for comfort and sensibility. What do you need to know before you buy a Lexus ES? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
The Lexus GX is a confusingly old-school SUV disguised with Lexus’s new design language. What do you need to know before you buy a Lexus GX? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
