Reviews Summary

The Toyota Sequoia gained a standard hybrid powertrain when it entered its third generation, just last year. While the tech updates were widely celebrated and the facelift considered unobjectionable even by its harshest critics, the move to hybrid power proved to be something of a mixed bag. Increased towing and hauling power bolstered the obvious advantage of improved fuel economy, but impact was somewhat dampened by the reduction in cargo and third-row space to accommodate the new battery.

Verdict: The Sequoia may not be the most capable full-size SUV in the segment, and it’s certainly not the most spacious. It is, however, the only hybrid in its class, and it offers a blend of seating capacity, towing power, and fuel efficiency you won’t find elsewhere-at least, not if you don’t want to go diesel.

Reviews Summary

Launched in 1995, the original Lexus LX was one of the first luxury SUVs, competing with the Land Rover Range Rover and paving the way for modern rivals like the Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator, Infiniti QX80, BMW X7, Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and the revived Jeep Grand Wagoneer. But while all of those SUVs are fairly fresh designs, the LX hasn’t been redesigned in almost a decade.

So the fourth-generation 2022 Lexus LX 600 has been a long time coming. The redesign brings a new platform, updated infotainment and driver-assist tech, and a new twin-turbocharged V6 engine, among other things. Like all previous LX generations, it’s based on the Toyota Land Cruiser. Toyota isn’t bringing the latest Land Cruiser to the United States, however, so the new LX won’t have to deal with sibling rivalry anymore.

The 2022 Lexus LX 600 launches in base, Premium, F Sport, Luxury, and Ultra Luxury trim levels. We spent a few days with a range-topping LX Ultra Luxury to see if this once-revolutionary SUV is worth spending money on today.
