2020 Lexus LX 570 Review By Car Critic Steve Hammes. It’s built in Japan, costs about $100,000 and plays by its own timeless rules; this is the Lexus LX. As long as you can afford the gas and don’t mind stopping for it often, the LX is a great long trip cruiser with comfort for days and the ability to handle a back road. And when you do find yourself off the beaten path the 4×4 ride quality is spectacular. So the best reason for purchase is for the air of serene invincibility the LX provides. It sounds like 2022 will be the next LX redesign. Until then, enjoy Lexus’ definition of the timeless SUV.
2020 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE CROSS QUICK TAKES. The Eclipse Cross continues as the standard-bearer for Mitsubishi styling, technology and driving confidence in the form of a nimble-yet-capable CUV. The bold design cues strike an imposing figure on the road, helping Eclipse Cross stand out from the crowd.
The Eclipse Cross’ coupe form is distinguished by its wedge profile with distinctive beltline and strong character line; a forward raked rear window; the angular rear gate and short overhang. The front of the Eclipse Cross features Mitsubishi’s signature Dynamic Shield design that conveys strength and confidence.
The unique rear design is distinguished by high-mounted, stretched rear lamps that horizontally divide the forward-raked rear window. When illuminated, the tubular LED brake lights and the central LED high-mount stop light form a single bar of light running across the tail, giving Eclipse Cross a broad and stable appearance from the rear.
2021 Chevrolet Tahoe High Country Review By TestDriveNow Car Critic Steve Hammes.
Earlier this decade, pundits predicted that a gallon of gas would cost more than $5 a gallon by now. Well, they were wrong. Really wrong. And so the SUVs which were declared dead and almost buried have experienced a boon like never before. And here comes one of the big boys; this is the all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe. Already renowned for its massive size, the Tahoe has gotten even bigger: a whopping 6.7” longer. This leads to huge increases in max cargo room and legroom in all 3 rows finally making the most efficient use of this rig’s gargantuan footprint. MSRP as-tested: $82,840
