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 made few changes to its aging GX SUV for 2021, but it has added a Premium Plus trim between the mid-range Premium and top-spec Luxury models. It comes standard with a power-operated third-row of seats and a Mark Levinson premium stereo system. The GX's infotainment system now offers Amazon Alexa compatibility. A heated wood-and-leather steering wheel is now optional on the Premium and Premium Plus models..

Pros
Legit off-road capability, standard driver-assistance tech, quiet interior..

Cons
Hard-bottomed second-row seats, not as cargo-friendly as some rivals, outdated infotainment.
