Unless you have to cross a moat to reach your Mount Paran castle, there’s not much reason to drive an all-terrain behemoth like a Lexus GX or a Land Rover Discovery daily. And yet, these leather-clad battle tanks sell faster than many sensible crossovers.
Why? Because $60k is a small price to pay to feel unstoppable. With a tractor trailer ride height, silky-smooth V8 and luxurious cockpit, a god complex comes standard.
Ironically, the only thing stopping a Land Rover Discovery is … itself. Land Rover ranks among Consumer Reports’ least reliable brands, whereas Lexus tops the list.
