2018 Lexus GX 460 Review: Old-School And Proud
– Detroit, Michigan
The last significant update to the Lexus GX 460 came for the 2014 model year, when the big luxury SUV adopted the new Lexus spindle-grille face and some other changes – and this vehicle feels like it came straight out of a 2014 timewarp. While SUVs are more popular than ever, the GX recalls the olden days of big, heavy, SUVs with body-on-frame construction and thirsty V8 engines. That’s not necessarily all bad: With a locking center differential, aggressive approach and departure angles, and hill-descent control, the GX does offer a bit more off-roading ability than some of its direct luxury competitors. It is, however, inefficient and lacking in many modern technologies.
