Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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.

The 2020 Lexus GX 460 comes with four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.LED headlights are now standard.Lexus' Safety System+ included on every trim level.

Pros
Decent off-road capability in a segment largely without it
Seating position provides a good view of the road
Easy-to-use interior controls

Cons
Cargo capacity and rear-seat space are both compromised
Uncomfortable seats
Poor fuel economy and acceleration
Poor ride on broken pavement

The 2020 Lexus GX is a rugged luxury SUV for those few who want serious capability in a plush package.The 2020 Lexus GX 460 is probably the most capable off-roader valet parked in front of a swanky restaurant or an upscale shopping center, at least as long as there are no Range Rovers present.

Pros
Rugged personality
Safety tech now standard
Decent tow rig
Cushy ride

Cons
Funky tailgate
Lousy fuel economy
Trucky handling
Cramped row three

Lexus has given the GX a host of upgrades for the 2020 model year. Its sheetmetal benefits from a revised spindle grille, and its back door, emblem, and license-garnish finish have been updated. Triple-beam LED headlights are now standard, and Atomic Silver joins the palette of exterior colors. Within its cabin, the GX gets new detailing on its steering wheel and shift knob, along with two new rear-seat USB ports. Additionally, the driver-assistance features in the Lexus Safety System+ suite of amenities are now standard on all models.

Pros
Superb off-road skills,
long list of standard driver-assistance features,
peaceful cabin.

Cons
Uncomfortable second-row seats,
rivals models offer more cargo space,
poor fuel economy.
