2013 Lexus GX 460 SUV Premium 4dr SUV 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is a great, comfortable and fun to drive SUV. The interior is beautiful and functional. Great quality. Engine has lots of power to accelerate and pass cars on the highway. It's stable in sport mode on twisty country roads. It feels like you're riding on air, even on poor roads, and it offers rock solid handling. You can easily fit 3 large folks into the car for long trips, and probably 2 more for shorter rides. The extra row of seats in the back are OK for kids (and i assume mother in law types), and I keep them folded and use the space for cargo gear. but that's about it. I haven't used it much off-road, but for what I needed it handled very well and got me in and out very nicely.


Favorite Features

Air suspension, heated/cooled seats, Mark Levinson audio system, and the Navigation system. Also, the IR backup camera light is very helpful and the seats are super comfortable. There's lots and lots to not just like, but love in this case.


Suggested Improvements

Rear view camera needs to have dynamic guiding lines (in this model it's just a camera and you need to figure out the spacing as you backup). Extra row sits in the back OK for kids and fold well for sufficent storage space.

Review

In the last 3 years I have owned the Q7 tdi, BMW X5 disel, Acura MDX 2014. I avoided the GX the last two years due to the camry fascia they put on the truck but for this year they changed it to their new F grills. I can tell you right now out of the listed SUV the lexus handles just like the BMW X5 without the stiff steering and suspension with KDSS standard. I have the premium model. The new MDX for 2014 lost the magnetic shocks that I used to love and was absolutely horrible I drove it for 2 months and traded it for a loss to get into the GX. The 2014 MDX had very bad body lean in corners the famous user interface has been butchered by Acura and was awful. GX interface is perfect.


Favorite Features

The KDSS equipped GX is a pleasure to drive, steering is sharp hardly any body lean into the corners. User interface with touch screen is very easy to use and fast. Air cooled seats are a must. With the GX I am not afraid to go off road for moutain biking or exploring like I was with the BMW X5, Audi and Acura MDX. Front seat storage was the best of the all vehicle listed with plenty of center storage and map compartments. Cup holders that work and put in the right place. Plenty of cargo storage with three rows put down. Standard with Tow package and eletronics for towing trailors. Love the LED head lights, accent lights and fog lights.


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the Barn door and go back to a traditional vertical rear hatch door. Keep everything else the same.

Review

Fuel comsumption should be better since the LS models gets a Hwy. average of 25mpg. The rear door should open up and not to the side since all of Toyotas Suv'S open up, which is not only safer,but also keep the rain off when loading. Leg room in 2nd row could be better.


Favorite Features

Enform,destination assist, illuminated entry/exit


Suggested Improvements

Improve the leg room and rear door to open up and not out. Improve fuel economy.
