About this Episode
Aren't you tired of hearing the Unnamed Automotive Podcast cover mainstream cars that you might actually see on the road? This weeks episode deals with those blahs you're feeling with a pair of niche luxury vehicles. First up Benjamin talks about the 2022 Lexus LX600, which rides on a new platform and features a fresh powertrain. But things aren't aligning properly for Ben, who isn't sure if this is really a Escalade competitor, or a Land Cruiser replacement. Sure it has the 'golden ratio,' but what does that mean when it's almost impossible to fit in the rear seat without an advanced contortionist's degree?
Sami chimes in with his own confusing thoughts on the 2022 Volvo S90 Recharge. While he's sure to mention the impressive power and torque from this speedy PHEV, don't miss his thoughts on how it charges...eventually. Our hosts also discuss the conflict of ideas going on at Volvo, and how the company has ended up delivering cars with potential but limited execution.

- Test Drive Review: The 2022 Lexus LX 600 Tries To Take Over Off-Road Duties For The Toyota Land Cruiser — For 2022 Toyota has consolidated its line-up of off-road friendly, full-size SUVs down to a single option. Gone is the long-running, but slow-selling Land Cruiser, a vehicle whose near-luxury pricing restricted its appeal to that narrow demographic of buyers who craved a go-anywhere family ride with premium pretensions, and who could tolerate a more pedestrian badge on the hood. In its place is a redesigned version of the Lexus LX.
