    :42 “hybrid, a first for any pickup…” Sierra, Silverado, F150, Ram were before the Maverick.

    I enjoy the Driven reviews. As far as this truck goes… I like the look. The new powertrain is fine with me too, actually I find it very appealing. If a v8 is your preference, then go buy a truck with a v8. There are plenty. I found the ongoing comparisons to the Ram’s look and feel a little tiring. Why was there no mention of long-term reliability in the comparisons to the other brands you mentioned? It seems relevant. I know I could find reliability stats elsewhere, but I am here. Entertain and inform me.

    No spare and run flat tires. That's a deal breaker. Toyota Venza would have been an option if it's not because the full touch screen infotainment system (no physical buttons). The only remaining option is RAV4 Limited. What a disappointment.

    in Switzerland we only get the hybrid and plug-in hybrid - the other versions sales are not really attractive due to taxes on gas and taxes above a certain level of CO2 emission. But only a year ago a climate change denial was president of the US and gas is barely taxed…so there is not incentive in the US for consumers to change behavior

    So do you have to pay to use the voice tech? Otherwise you can just use it as a touchscreen? I hate this new tech trend to completely gut the user experience without a paid subscription and treat the free users as an afterthought

    Like so many models these days, you have to pay more up front to save any money on fuel costs. Typically, it means you have to drive most cars for years before you can accrue any real savings. High-end EVs are even worse. Hybrids are great for efficiency but they still are burdened with effectively two powertrains to power one car. We've come a long way but there is still a long way to go. This is a nice vehicle that will serve it's customers well even if it doesn't offer much for enthusiasts. Guess that's why they build the GR86. Anywho, another great review and the Red Light/Green Light summary is always perfect. So concise and informative!

    Hybrid or even PHEV should be standard. If this is Toyota’s future, where is the BEV? Honestly, Tom, after driving BEV for 7 years, any exhaust note sounds disgusting to me. Toyota is such a disappointment.

    I get around 55-57 mpg. I drive 160 miles a day. About 98% highway. 62mph is the sweet spot on Cruise control. The engine turns off and uses the hybrid mode when it’s level ground or down hill. When not using cruise control you can use the electric motor alone with the engine off, up to 70 mph BUT you have to be progressive with the gas pedal. I bought mine in July 2021, I already have 15,000 miles! No regrets. I get about 550 miles per tank. Only has a 10 gallon gas tank.

    I think Lexus has finally found its groove with exterior design, the initial implementations of the spindle grille looked awkward and excessive, and the rear light bar is a nice touch (very 2020s) Not sure i can say the same about the new LX but this one looks nice

      So some good questions need to be asked if buying. NX 450h+ or RX 450h with V6 for less $? . The plugin is much more expensive than the RX. It's over $6000 + more by my calculations, and by the time you add ML and packages... Which one of the 2 is more refined, quieter, luxurious? All of the infotainment that people make a big deal about to me is just smoke and mirrors. No matter how advanced or fancy they may seem today, in a few years, they become old news. They are nice to have, but they are not what I'm looking for as my priorities. I want quality, reliability, refinement, great sound system. Once I am driving, I am not going gaga over some fancy schmancy iphone gimmicks. The driving experience and feel, you will always have. I currently own a 2019 GS350f Sport with a triple beam and ML system. It's both fun to drive and refined, and the ML system is incredible. And I have the peace of mind that it won't be a pile of junk in 5 years.

    GV70 and Macan walk all over this thing. The Lexus though it is attractive and the interior updates are revelation for Lexus. Look for this to challenge the RX for best selling status at Lexus until the new RX arrives. What I would really like to see is a true F Sport Performance version. 365hp, AWD, NO HYBRID, real suspension tuning and true focus on dynamics. The interface needs work because they're playing catch up. I mean "Hey XYZ" is something they're just learning from Mercedes and others.

    "...With 275 horsepower, it's more powerful than rivals such as the Audi Q3, BMW X1, and Mercedes-Benz GLA. Pronounced turbo lag hampers this advantage, however. The 3,987-pound NX hits 60 mph in 6.6 seconds, 0.9 second behind the 228-hp X1. With the boost fully on boil, the NX covers the quarter-mile in 15.0 seconds at 95 mph and reaches 100 mph in 16.1 seconds, 0.6 second slower than the X1. Braking from 70 mph takes 175 feet-15 feet longer than the summer-tire-equipped Q3 and 6 feet shorter than the GLA250. All NXs roll on run-flat tires, and they exacted a performance toll on our skidpad. The 235/50R-20 Bridgestone Alenza A/S02 tires howl under duress and only managed 0.81 g of lateral grip, versus 0.89 g for the Cadillac XT4. Upgrading to the F-Sport handling package ($3,300) adds adaptive dampers that noticeably firm up the ride, but the summer tire option has been dropped..." Car & Driver

    In our testing, we beat the Lexus-estimated acceleration to 60 mph by a full half-second, hitting 60 in 5.5 seconds versus the quoted 6.0-second time. That's quicker than the other 2022 NX models we've tested, but a 2021 XC60 Recharge reaches 60 in a MotorTrend-tested 5.0 seconds. We haven't yet tested a Q5 plug-in, but Audi estimates its model to be just as quick as the Volvo. In case you wonder, the lighter-weight RAV4 Prime matches the NX450h+'s 5.5-second time to 60. This means the NX plug-in hybrid is both the quickest NX money can buy and the slowest SUV in its tiny segment. Remember, though, that the Lexus provides a better balance of EV driving range and acceleration than the Audi and Volvo. On the road, the NX450h+ feels quick despite its as-tested 4,444-pound heft. Multiple MotorTrend editors felt the NX450h+ had better suspension tuning than the NX350 and NX350h we also drove. The NX450h+ rides with more stability than its siblings, and it feels like it is the best balanced and best damped among the 350 and 450-badged NX models. Just don't expect the agility of a Genesis GV70 or Alfa Romeo Stelvio. On our figure-eight course-a MotorTrend test that evaluates acceleration, braking, handling, and the transitions in between-the NX450h+'s performance doesn't reflect the way it feels in the real world. The plug-in finished the test in 28.4 seconds at 0.57 g (average), well behind the quicker Volvo's 26.3 seconds at 0.69 g but also behind the RAV4 Prime (27.0 seconds at 0.65 g) and the NX350h. That NX hybrid variant is nearly 400 pounds lighter than the NX450h+ and finishes the figure-eight course quicker, at 28.0 seconds at 0.59 g. Motor Trend

    Hey Tom, see you can compare the NX350h+ with the Kia Sorento PHEV which I just bought. To me the Sorento PHEV which has a real spare, real six speed transmission, Nappa leather seats, standard 3rd row seats with more overall interior room makes it a clear winner despite the dealer markup which is kind of expected in the current market. I bet Lexus dealer will do the same thing. Love your channel!

      @Driven Car Reviews With Tom Voelk Thanks. I love my 2014 Subaru Legacy with eyesight. However, it only has the autonomous cruise control. My next vehicle will have a good lane centering function as well. Many are second rate with ping-ponging. I frequently drive from Seattle to San Diego. Maybe I should compare Hyundai Sandra fe hybrid to a Cadillac xt5. A 2 row midsize awd SUV is on my list. How is the Subaru Outback lane centering? I’d love to see a whole podcast on the different lane centering systems. CR touches on this subject superficially.

      The 2022 LS is getting major updates? The current LS gets a 45 out of 100 and last place in the segment today, according to Consumer Reports.

    I was considering this car but I'm not a fan of run-flats and the subscription for the nav is off putting. Great review.

      @CavemanKiwi You can run Android Auto's map/nav without aa active cell connection--just download the map for the area you're traveling in (it also saves on data charges--I still get traffic advisories, though, which probably come via a data connection). Now, for a cross-country road-trip without any cell connection, you'd have to do some pre-planning...

      It is an issue imo that the built in Nav. A) needs a subscription to function. B) needs data to function. It doesn't have a complete NA map on file and needs cell service. This means it functions no better than a cellphone (carplay/android auto). My old Honda had a DVD map system that would still work once cell service was no more. No preloading issues, turn it on and you have maps even if they are out of date.

      I agree. They really need to get rid of it. It looks so Fisher-Price to me.

    Hi Tom - How comfortable were the front seats for longer drives?

      Current NX has superb seats, though F Sport’s are narrow. New one NX should be fine.

    I don’t think it’s very professional of a senior Lexus employee giving a demonstration of the new entertainment interface while chewing gum!

      She wants to keep her breath daisy-fresh, as they're sitting side-by-side. [an Altoids would have been slightly more discreet...]

      And 40 mpg seals the deal.
