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

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

By:

Pros
Handling
V-6 gas mileage
Consistent cabin quality in first and second rows
Handy dashboard device tray
Huge storage bin between front seats
Power-adjustable cushion length available (driver's seat)

Cons
Sluggish acceleration from a stop (V-6)

Apple CarPlay, Android Auto not offered

The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid receives no significant changes.The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid comes with a good amount of standard equipment in the base LE trim. But we recommend upgrading to the midlevel XLE. On top of the standard systems such as forward collision mitigation and lane departure intervention, the XLE gets blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as well as the upgraded 8.1-inch touchscreen.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy for a three-row crossover
Just-right size for many families
Added peace of mind from standard accident-avoidance tech
Quiet and compliant ride

CONS
Touchscreen and other controls may require an extra-long reach
Third-row seat isn't as roomy as those of many competitors
