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.

The 2020 BMW X5 comes with rear wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.New turbo V8-powered M50i model joins the lineup.Keyless entry now standard on 40i base trim.Debut of plug-in hybrid xDrive45e expected in early or mid-2020.

Pros
Strong performance from both models
Luxurious, comfortable cabin lives up to its price tag
Spacious cabin and cargo area

Cons
Small mirrors and wide roof pillars create blind spots
Limited interior storage
Wide doorsills inhibit entry and exit

This year, the big change to the X5 lineup can be summed up in three words: even more performance. BMW has added a fourth member to the stable, the M50i, which pummels the asphalt with 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque from its turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8—up 67 horsepower and 74 lb-ft from the xDrive50i's similar 4.4-liter V-8. The M50i package includes a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, an M Sport exhaust, bigger brakes, and sportier suspension tuning with adaptive dampers.

Pros
Inspiring engines,
top-notch build quality,
easy-to-use infotainment system.

Cons
Steering feel is in short supply,
third row is for small fry only,
no Android Auto capability.
