The GX is Top Notch
The Lexus GX is a great all around luxury vehicle that can do anything you ask it to and then some. It is also a vehicle that can hold up and handle very well in the worst conditions. This is the perfect vehicle for anyone or family who lives outside the city limits and requires the best all around quality and reliability. The GX is a top choice for the demanding vehicle owner.
2018 Old school vibe
Excellent vehicle and good right eight. However, seats are not comfortable for everyone. Make sure you test them before you sign the dotted line. Other than that craftsmanship is excellent and the value on these things are superb. Love my GX!!
* LUXURIOUS BEAST
* THIS SUV does "almost" everything well. Smooth and quiet ride, great acceleration and passing capability, looks and comfort make for a great vehicle. The one glaring flaw that I hesitate to bring light to is the cargo space when using the third row seating. You literally cannot put ANYTHING behind the third row seats. Okay, maybe a newspaper but that's even pushing it.

The 2018 Lexus GX 460 is one of very few luxury SUVs designed for rugged off-road use. It can handle extreme family motoring thanks to durable body-on-frame construction, a V8 engine, an off-road-ready four-wheel-drive system and three rows of seats. But there are problems with Lexus' approach.

For starters, the GX's styling and big running boards are intended to bolster its luxury and family credentials, but they also significantly reduce ground clearance and approach angles. All the ruggedness and off-road tech in the world won't help if you keep scraping the body on things.

At the same time, the GX's traditional design reduces its effectiveness as a daily-use SUV. Its poor fuel economy, slow acceleration, ponderous handling, dated cabin and a lack of advanced driver-assistance features in lower-trim models stand in sharp contrast to crossover models (including those sold by Lexus). There are other vehicles with similar capabilities — not many, but they are out there — and not all are saddled with these shortcomings.

Lexus is a whiz when it comes to leather and wood, and the GX 460's interior is warm and luxurious. But it also seems a bit behind the times, with an old-school feeling to the control layout. Though the front seats are comfortable, the second row is less so and the third row is only suited for small children. The GX 460 offers less cargo space than its rivals, and the tailgate is hinged on the passenger side, making curbside loading difficult (at least in countries where we drive on the right side of the road). That said, a top-hinged rear window does make it easy to drop in groceries and carry long items like surfboards.

The GX 460's 4.6-liter V8 produces 301 horsepower and 329 pound-feet of torque, and it comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission and full-time four-wheel drive with a low-range transfer case. The GX 460 can tow up to 6,500 pounds and its off-road performance is better than most, but again, such abilities come at the cost of on-road manners. Steering and brakes are slower to respond than in a crossover, and big as the engine is, it has to work its oil pan off to get the 5,200-pound GX up to highway speeds. It's no surprise then that the EPA fuel economy rating is unimpressive at just 16 mpg combined.

Lexus offers the GX 460 in two trim levels: base and Luxury. Base is a poor name since this version is very well-equipped, though some luxury nice-to-haves come only in option bundles. The Luxury model is well worth having, not only for its extra creature comforts but also for its auto-leveling rear air springs. Those help smooth out the ride a bit, but the GX is always going to jostle you around more than crossover rivals.

If you're shopping for this go-anywhere SUV, though, Edmunds can help find the perfect 2018 Lexus GX 460 for you.
