    1406412600

    There are some things in this industry that we're perplexed by, like the infotainment system on our long-term Subaru WRX or why the Mitsubishi Mirage is allowed to exist, among other things. Let's add one more to that group, with the Lexus GX. It's not a particularly bad vehicle for a big, ...

    Why It Pays To Be A Good Test Taker 1406221140

    The Gas Guzzler schedule, with mpg ratings and charges that haven't changed since 1991, lays out which fuel-swillers owe what to Uncle Sam. I started thinking about the "Gas Guzzler Tax" – considerably less well known as The Energy Tax Act of 1978 – when I was driving Dodge's new ...

    Quick Spin: 2015 Lexus NX 300h
    Believe It Or Not, This Is The One We'd Buy 1405353420

    With so much hullabaloo being made over the first gasoline turbocharged engine produced by Lexus, it's easy to forget that there's another option for those who'd rather (barely) hear the whirring of electric motors than the high-pitched whizzing of turbos. That's too bad, because we think the NX ...

    An In-Depth Look At The Lexus Of Turbocharged Engines 1404742500

    If Lexus is going to stay competitive, it needs to turbocharge sooner rather than later. If there's anything that Lexus is experienced with, thanks in large part to its corporate parents at Toyota, it's hybrid powertrains. The automaker has hybridized tiny little four-cylinder engines, ...

    1404478740

    The Lexus LS is old. Sure, it received a refresh for model year 2013, but it hasn't had a clean-sheet redesign since George W. Bush was in office.

    1404252060

    After just a year on the road, Lexus is bringing some modest tech and style upgrades to the 2015 IS.

    Official: Lexus has big expectations for small NX crossover
    1403982000

    1403098140

    What's in a name? When it comes to model nameplates, quite a lot, and automakers go to considerable lengths to find just the right one. Same goes for the names of the colors in the catalog (save for maybe the Rape Yellow in the extensive Bugatti palette), but every once in a while, an automaker ...

    Report: Lexus back in luxury sales race after three-year absence
    1402243620

    Think the only challengers for the title of best-selling luxury brand hail from der Vaterland? Wrong. Lexus outsold the likes of Mercedes-Benz for the second time in 2014 last month.

    Report: This is what a Lexus RC-based 'four-door coupe' might look like
    1401748200

    It feels like there is a secret law in Germany mandating that every domestic automaker there must offer at least one model with a four-door coupe bodystyle like the BMW Gran Coupes, Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7. Several of the German brands even have the swoopy sedans in multiple sizes. So far, ...

    Report: Lexus launches supercharged LX 570 in Middle East
    1398948240

    The Lexus LX SUV is a very muscular, old-school vehicle. Based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, it's still a big, body-on-frame SUV, but inside it offers acres of leather and luxury tech. The brand's Kuwaiti distributor is taking it machismo even further for the local market with the new LX 570 ...
