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.

Pros
Impressively comfortable ride for a sport-tuned SUV
Generous space for passengers
Luxurious but restrained interior design
Nimble handling

Cons
Lack of touchscreen limits usefulness of smartphone integration

Like the regular Q5, the high-performance SQ5 receives a host of exterior updates for 2021 to freshen its look. New exterior lighting elements, a tweaked grille and bumpers, and new wheel designs differentiate it from last year's model. The top-spec Prestige gets OLED taillights as standard, and two new colors join the palette: Ultra Blue and District Green.

Pros
Handsomely-equipped cabin,
comfortable ride,
decent fuel economy for a performance SUV.

Cons
Not overly spacious,
turbo V-6 doesn't match rivals' horsepower,
handling not as sharp as it could be.
