The 2018 Lexus GX 460 is a luxury sport utility that focuses on utility rather than luxury family hauling. Of the truly off-road SUVs on the road, the GX 460 is one of the best. Yet most automakers have moved away from truck-based sport utilities into crossovers, making the GX 460 something of a relic.
The GX 460 has been largely as-is for some time, with few changes to keep up with market trends. Some of the interior, especially seating arrangements, and the ride quality of the GX 460 may not be up to par for many luxury buyers. As a utility-centric design, the GX also has lower fuel economy and less daily use ergonomics than some crossover-based rivals.
These things don’t mean there isn’t a lot to love about the 2018 Lexus GX 460. The GX 460 issues confidence at every angle and feels commanding when driven. For those who want a luxury daily driver that has serious off-road capability, the GX might fit the bill.
