2022 Lexus ES: Fresh Styling & New Interior Updates For This Luxury Sedan

The 2022 Lexus ES is pretty much more of the same: More luxury, more safety, more features, and more of that rock-solid Lexus reliability. Part of the fifth-gen model unveiled in 2018, the Lexus ES received a significant redesign in 2019 and a few updates the year after. But for 2022, the Lexus ES is debuting a fresher face and a host of necessary interior updates. “Our goal was to deepen the high quality of the ES and to add new value,” said Lexus International Chief Engineer Tetsuya Aoki. “...

2021 Ford Expedition XL STX: A Quick Walk Around This Nicely Priced SUV

Drivers who need a big vehicle but don’t want to pay through the nose for a luxury SUV may want to add the 2021 Ford Expedition XL STX to their list. Ford fans may recognize the STX trim level from the F-150 lineup, which always found its home just below the XLT. A slightly less dynamic exterior design (i.e. no chrome) and a more spartan interior gave it a price advantage over the XLT, but it was not as basic as the XL. With the 2021 Expedition, Ford is doing something similar. “The Expedi...

In the summer of 2010, Ford sent a factory rep to our dealership in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
