Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Forget about its Chinese roots; the Envision is a comfortable, well-appointed crossover. But it's also expensive, and there are some interior compromises.
Let's not beat around the bush: The 2017 Buick Envision is the first mainstream vehicle assembled in China and exported to the United States.
Introduced last year but expanded for the 2017 model year to a full lineup of base, Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Premium II trim levels, the Envision may sound like a brand of perfume, but it's really a mid-size crossover.

Pros
Perfect fit for the Buick lineup
Quiet interior
Comfortable ride quality
Attractive styling

Cons
Price on par with genuine luxury rivals
Would you buy a Chinese-made American car?
Turbo is AWD-only
Advanced safety tech costs big bucks

The 2017 Buick Envision ranks 12 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Buick Envision gets lost near the back of the luxury compact SUV pack. It’s comfortable to drive and nicely equipped, and it offers good value for the money, but in a sea of over-achievers, the Envision is just average.

Pros
Peppy turbocharged engine
Comfortable, spacious seats
Excellent safety ratings
Lots of tech features

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Dull handling

The 2017 Buick Envision is an all-new vehicle in the lineup that slots between the smaller Encore and the midsize Enclave SUVs. The Envision combines a practical size with a long list of standard features that make it a value-packed, near-luxury SUV worth considering.

Pros
Manageable size makes it easy to drive and maneuver
The cabin is as quiet inside as premium luxury SUVs
You get a lot of features for the money.

Cons
Cargo capacity is merely average for the class
Engine output is adequate but far from impressive.

The 2017 Lexus GX ranks 22 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Lexus GX ranks near the bottom of the luxury midsize SUV class. If you want a luxury SUV with off-road capabilities (and standard four-wheel drive), then the GX is one of the few midsize choices that will meet your criteria. It also comes standard with seating for seven. In most other respects, however, you’re better off looking at most other vehicles in the class.

Pros
Excellent off-road abilities
Intuitive technology features

Cons
Low fuel economy estimates
Timid acceleration
Unremarkable cabin materials

For an old-school SUV, the Lexus GX acquits itself quite well.Underneath its sharply-styled body and high-end interior, the Lexus GX 460 hides a utilitarian frame and a suspension shared with the foreign-market Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
Why's that important? The Prado, which is unrelated to the Land Cruiser sold at Toyota dealers in the United States, is a serious work truck designed for farmers in Australia and peacekeepers in Somalia. That helps explain some of its compromises—but despite its high step-in and quirky tailgate, the Lexus GX 460 does a lot of things very well.

Pros
Truck-based solidity
Smooth and strong V-8 engine
Plush ride quality
Comfortable interior
Off-road ability

Cons
Side-opening hatch opens away from the curb
Too-light steering
Poor gas mileage
Spongy brake pedal feel
Compromised cargo area

By:

Lexus has added the Sport Design package to the 2017 GX 460, which includes some different wheels, a different front grille and additional exterior chrome trim pieces. Second-row captain's chairs are a new feature for the GX 460.

Pros
Capable off-road performance requires little effort from the driver
Plenty of luxury features and cabin amenities.

Cons
Poor acceleration and fuel economy from the V8 engine
Uncomfortable standard second-row bench seats
Inconvenient side-swinging rear cargo door
Relatively ponderous handling around turns.
