Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

The Lexus GX does its best to handle more like a crossover, but still feels a bit wobbly. A lot of suspension travel, soft ride, spongy brakes, slow steering, artificial feel.

The 4.6-liter V8 makes 301 horsepower, giving the GX a zero to sixty time of 7.8 seconds; both the horsepower and 0-60 time can be matched by many V6s. The six-speed automatic is quick and smooth.

Toyota’s Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System is standard equipment, same as the Land Cruiser. It uses air springs at the rear, and enables one rear wheel to push down for traction, when the other rear wheel gets light.

It makes the ride smoother, even on winding two-lanes, despite top-heavy dynamics. However the system hides body lean, and steals something from the seat of the driver’s pants.

The ride gets even smoother with available adaptive dampers (standard on the Luxury).

All-wheel drive comes standard. The power is split 40/60 front/rear, with a Torsen differential to transmitting more to the rear when needed. It’s a full-on offroad system, with a low range, center diff lock, and crawl control, which takes over at settable speeds between 1.0 and 3.7 mph.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

The Lexus GX tries to make up for its slab-sided styling with its big awkward nose but only draws attention to it. A big spindle grille was slapped onto a boxy front end, a design mismatch that gives the SUV a split personality.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Being an old-school SUV, it’s tall, a bit narrow, and has a high floor. So the front occupants ride way up there. On plush cushions. With lots of room. Commanding view for the driver. Big step to get in, though.

The trim is luxury soft, wrapped around chunky shapes, bulky door handles. The dash panel is upright, with controls over horizontal bands of wood. The controls are neither overwhelming nor complex, a relief, because so many rivals are. Real buttons in the right places. Legible gauges. The center stack for audio, climate and navigation is clean. Good steering-wheel controls.

Too bad it’s saddled with bad infotainment. The system has a large display but is difficult to navigate. Lexus doesn’t offer Android Auto or Apple CarPlay as useful, streamlined bypasses.

Layers of rich materials belie its roots. The shape inside is dated, but details give it elegance. Its functional shortcomings are covered by leather, real or synthetic on the base GX460.

The sliding second-row seat yields great legroom and much space, as long as no one is in the third row. Which is difficult to reach, cramped, and with the power-fold feature doesn’t fold flat, making the cargo space high and narrow. The side-hinged tailgate makes it quite awkward. And the seat can’t be removed.


New Car Test Drive

Like the Toyota 4Runner, the Lexus GX is a capable vehicle off road, for the right price. Styling, fuel cost, spacey handling, spongy brakes, and inconvenient cargo carrying are its downsides.
