Best Luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover:

2014 Lexus LX 570

If you ever find yourself needing to crawl down a mountain path while carrying a party of eight in leather-laden luxury, you'd be wise to do it in a Lexus LX. Being the flagship in Lexus' SUV lineup, the luxury part is a given. That this high-end people-mover has the off-road capability it does puts it among an exclusive set. And when it comes to resale value, the 2014 LX stands taller than all its competitors.

The Lexus LX takes luxury and utility to the extreme with features like a 19-speaker Mark Levinson Reference surround-sound audio system, quad-zone climate control, terrain-optimized traction control, and driver-assistance technology that enables this SUV to crawl over extreme terrain.

Motivating the 2014 Lexus LX is a big V8 engine that churns out 383 horsepower -- enough to get this 8-passenger SUV up to freeway speeds in a hurry or tow 7,000 pounds. For all its off-road prowess, the LX still behaves like a Lexus when it comes to the civilized areas where it will most be driven. Drivers are treated to a quiet, comfortable highway ride and a commanding view out front.

There's no denying that the LX's $82,000-plus starting price puts it in exclusive company. But those willing to the make the investment will reap a large and luxurious SUV with the capability to go far beyond where most dare tread, and the benefits of Lexus' enviable history of reliability and resale value.
