Best of 2020: BBQ takeout in the San Fernando Valley

It is, as the Lexus car ad tells us, a “December to Remember.” Or at least, hopefully it is, following a “Year to Forget.” Choose your crisis — and crack open a fresh bottle of Chardonnay to bury the memory; there were enough this past year to turn us all into confirmed tipplers and over-indulgers. But there were, in the ashes of 2020, some fine and tasty moments I’m happy to bring back. Not just cooking with the family — though there was certainly plenty of that. But also, in the hope of keepin...

Lexus Dreamed Up Two Different Autonomous Futures That Will Help Us Relax

2021 Lexus GX 460 Review: Showing its Age but Still Pretty Solid

2021 Lexus GX 460 In Our Opinion: For the 2020 model year, the Lexus GX 460 received an upgraded off-road package with crawl contol, a new spindle grille, and a few luxurious interior tweaks. That said, there is little new for 2021, aside from Amazon Alexa compatibility and acoustic front side glass. Nice as those updates are, we would look first for a nice pre-owned model. The Lexus GX 460 is quite luxurious inside and plenty capable off-road, but the 4.6-liter V8 is showing its age and...

2021 Lexus IS: Sporty New IS Sedan Embraces Its Racetrack Roots

The 2021 Lexus IS is unlike any other IS from previous generations. Lexus claims it’s the best IS to date. It’s also the first Lexus model to be developed using the new Lexus Driving Signature credo. We’re all familiar with the Lexus brand and how it blends Toyota-levels of durability and reliability in a surprisingly luxurious and refined package. Still, a Lexus was never about spine-tingling agility and superb handling. Even the mighty Lexus LFA, for all its attributes and high-revving Yamaha-...

Lexus J201 Concept to Tackle Upcoming Rebelle Rally

When the Lexus J201 Concept debuts October 8th in the 10-day, 1200-mile, women-only Rebelle Rally across Nevada and California, it’s a clear sign that politicians aren’t the only ones that play to their bases. Even though Lexus is a luxury brand, they do tout their off-road capabilities in vehicles like the LX 570 and GX 460. Toyota’s luxury cousin has long had its best sales in the United States, so it makes sense the automaker would craft its own modified version of the Lexus LX 570 as an o...

2021 Lexus LX 570: What’s New With This Large & Luxurious SUV?

The 2021 Lexus LX 570 receives a few updates and tweaks for the new model year. In May, we had a chance to drive the 2020 LX 570 and thought the interior was spacious and comfortable. For 2021, there is still plenty of room inside, but tech features like Amazon Alexa are now standard. LX 570 owners can now access individual skills like searching for directions, starting the vehicle, and reading an audiobook.  A new Glazed Caramel color is available for the interior, which sounds like a donut....

A timely reminder that the war on drugs, and even the war on marijuana, is not anywhere close to over

Just last night I flagged here a new article by Michael Vitiello about the "war on drugs" and extreme sentences for drug crimes.  And this morning I saw this news article from Kansas this past week that provides a reminder that the US drug war as operationalized through extreme sentences even for marijuana offenses remains a very current reality for far too many.  The piece is headlined "Man serving 7.5 years on marijuana case says Kansas’ sentencing laws aren’t just," and here are excerpts: A ...

2021 Lexus RC: New Black Line Editions Are Red Hot!

The styling of the 2021 Lexus RC just works. Given what it is – a practical sports car with a notional back seat – that probably means Lexus will sell a bunch of them.

Lexus Celebrates the Need to Get Out

Lexus unveils a new marketing campaign today to launch its first convertible in almost five years: the 2021 LC 500 Convertible. And the timing couldn’t be better.
