The Toyota Land Cruiser is legendary for its prowess as a sport utility vehicle. The Lexus LX 570 is the premium brand’s take on that SUV. The new body styling, updated transmission, and roomier interior are high points for 2016 – none of which impede on the offroad capability of this rig.

With the supercharged V8 under the hood of the 2017 Camaro ZL1 putting out 640 horsepower (477 kW) and 640 pound-feet (868 Nm) of torque, Chevrolet has designed a new 10-speed automatic transmission​ to handle all of that power going to the rear wheels.

As with its predecessors​, the 2016 Kia Optima remains value-oriented, but this newly-redesigned Optima is anything but cheap. Although bang for the buck was clearly a goal in its design, the 2016 Optima is also fun to drive with smart looks in a compelling package.
