In the world of Lexus SUVs, it’s the RX that grabs all the headlines. And it should, since it’s available in several configurations, including a fuel-efficient hybrid, and it’s the luxury automaker’s most popular SUV. That said, the 2019 Lexus GX 460 possibly is the brand’s best midsize SUV.
With seating for seven passengers and a powerful V8 engine, the 2019 Lexus GX sits near the top of the brand’s extensive lineup of SUVs. The model’s second-generation was introduced in 2010, and it slots between the seven-passenger version of the RX and the larger V8-powered LX 470. Built in Japan, the family-friendly 2019 Lexus GX 460 offers buyers rugged style and a level of off-road capability unexpected from Lexus. It competes in a crowded class of popular luxury suvs, including the Mercedes-Benz GLE, BMW X5, Volvo XC90, Audi Q7, Acura MDX, and Range Rover Discovery.
