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

Pros
Quiet interior and comfortable ride quality
Abundant cargo and passenger space
Updated tech interface with lots of USB and power ports

Cons
Merely average power from base powertrain
No other engines available
Stiff, uncomfortable front passenger seat
Engine sounds strained at full throttle

By:

With a dollop of refinement, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 would be a solid home run.

Active safety tech standard

Cons

Pricey with options
Confusing fuel economy story
