This week, we discuss the 2023 Lexus LX600. The three-row SUV boasts off-road prowess while offering consumers a first-class vehicle experience. We talk about the history of the LX and its corporate cousin, the Toyota Land Cruiser, and debate if the six-figure SUV is worth its weight both as a family hauler and a trail-ready ‘truck’. We also answer a question about EV-charging networks and welcome back an old friend to the show.

Man I wish you guys would test it, but it makes sense that you won’t due to the low sales volumes
King of the Road!
Monticello is an automatic pass on watching the videos.
With the new engine design to me its more of a BMW than a Toyota. So LX600 along with Sequoia & Tundra will be out of my list until no current Toyota N/A engines available. On a side note I know out side of USA Land Cruiser 300 is available with 4.0V6. Not sure if USA can get that as an option. But with the extra weight not sure if it would be way under-powered for our highways.
Joe’s bouncing knees are distracting!
New guy should lose the cap!
My dream brand
And it’s still a dream 😊
@Peter, that Z4 will die, before gas station ride into the sunset. 😉
Brought him back because the other guy said ummmmmmmmmm nonstop
Now that we’re done with kids sports these three row SUVs don’t have the same appeal. At the same time, we finally have the household balance sheet to make a luxury purchase like this. We ended up with a Wrangler 4xE, which I never in a million years thought we’d do. I thought we’d go Sequoia or Yukon AT4. I suspect maybe in another 10 years we’ll do something like this if we’re lucky enough to get grandkids.
Why didn’t you discuss the V8 Lexus GX as a cheaper alternative? CR seems to ignore the proven nature of the GX but because it is not a new design, journalists forget about it.
This is exceptionally bad. Why are these 3 men allowed to make this content? Wow. Tragic.
