2022 Lexus RC F gets minor updates, Fuji Speedway Edition trim returns

2022 Lexus RC F gets minor updates, Fuji Speedway Edition trim returns

The 2022 Lexus RC F is back with its burly V8 engine, and Lexus is returning the Fuji Speedway Edition in a limited number of units. The outgoing RC F Fuji Speedway Edition was limited to 60 units for 2021, but Lexus has allocated 50 units for 2022. And instead of coming in two exclusive paint colors (Cloudburst Gray and Artic Blast Satin), the 2022 Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition is only available in a satin blue Electric Surge paint.

2021 Lexus ES 250 AWD F Sport Review

2021 Lexus ES 250 AWD F Sport Review

"Good" isn't always "memorable," something the 2021 Lexus ES 250 AWD F Sport proves to be a forgettable reminder of. Neither as enthusiastic as the smaller IS, as lavish as the LS, or as ubiquitous as the RX and NX, the midsize sedan feels generally as solid and conscientious as you'd hope from the Lexus badge on the gaping grille. It just struggles with personality.

2021 Lexus LX 570 Review

2021 Lexus LX 570 Review

The idea of a "luxury off-roader" isn't quite so strange now, as it was when Lexus first launched the LX series in 1995. These days, lavish SUVs are par for the course, and if you're an automaker without one in the line-up then you're missing out on the meat of the market. People can't get enough of the upright driving position and all that burly, "I can go anywhere" styling.

And with the RX L Black Line series, you don’t need to penalize aggressive styling in the name of practical luxury.

2021 Lexus GX 460 Review: A very particular set of skills

2021 Lexus GX 460 Review: A very particular set of skills

The word "stalwart" seems like it was made for the 2021 Lexus GX 460. In production since 2009, and only relatively lightly massaged since then, the big SUV's resilience to replacement is a reminder that - for some applications - newer needn't always mean better. If you occupy the center-spot of a niche Venn diagram combining proper off-roading, luxury, and bigger groups, the GX could find itself on your (very short) shortlist.

My biggest Toyota and Lexus complaint is finally being fixed

My biggest Toyota and Lexus complaint is finally being fixed

The new 2022 Lexus NX looks slick, gets a welcome plug-in hybrid option, and an uptick in power, but it's the dashboard tech that I'm most excited by. It's fair to say that Lexus' infotainment systems haven't exactly been the most popular over the past 5-10 years, and while there have been multiple reasons for that, a lot of the blame can be placed squarely on the touchpad or joystick.
