Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Lexus GX ranked #21 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lexus GX has a score of 7.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 40 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Outstanding off-road capability
Good towing capacity

Cons
Poor fuel economy
Unexceptional cabin comfort and features
Small, inconvenient cargo area
Weak acceleration

There are only a few minor changes in available features for the 2018 Lexus GX 460.If you're seriously considering the GX 460, you probably want to venture off-road in it. But if that's the case, you'll want the added ground clearance the Luxury trim's adaptive air suspension provides. Without it, the GX 460's ground clearance is worse than some crossovers.

PROS
Impressive off-road capability in a segment largely without it
High view out
Easy-to-use interior controls

CONS
Rough ride on broken pavement
Poor fuel economy and acceleration
Seats are uncomfortable
Compromised cargo space and third-row seat

By:

The Lexus GX 460 pairs scads of off-road hardware with lots of luxury trim, but most drivers will be better off with a crossover.

Pros
Solid truck feel
Strong, smooth V-8
Smothering ride
Comfortable cabin
Lots of off-road tech

Cons
Tailgate opens sideways
Light steering
Poor fuel economy
Brake feel
Shallow, narrow cargo area
