Lexus GX Overview

The GX 460 SUV is very quiet and quick. Like its Toyota 4Runner corporate cousin, the GX is a body-on-frame design that is capable off-road and has a high tow rating. The 4.6-liter V8 engine and six-speed automatic make for a slick powertrain that gets a pretty good 17 mpg overall. Handling is ungainly but ultimately secure. The ride is very comfortable, and off-road ability is commendable. Inside, the cabin is plush and well finished. The small third row seat folds neatly into the floor when not in use, but the side-swinging rear door can be inconvenient at times.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
