Still Making 'em Like They Used To
Lexus' most affordable 3-row offering is something of a throwback in the midsize luxury SUV segment: a body-on-frame SUV. Truck-like construction qualifies the Lexus GX among the most capable off-roaders in the segment -- second only to the Land Rover Discovery, maybe -- but that capability comes not without compromise. The GX isn't as smooth on the highway or as effortless around town as many of its competitors.
There's one thing ultimately appealing about the GX, however: It's a Lexus. The appeal of proven reliability, low ownership costs and a renowned dealership experience can't be denied.
"Due to its rugged platform and tall ride height, the 2018 Lexus GX 460 can’t deliver the same sporty ride and confident cornering as a car-based crossover SUV, but the trade-off is a firm-riding SUV with impressive off-road abilities. With its fully boxed frame, tall tires and full-time 4-wheel drive, the GX 460 can feel a bit brutish on rough pavement, even with Lexus’ Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System helping to lessen body lean."

Because the GX 460 is known for its off-road prowess and its luxurious cabin, the SUV's suspension has to be prepared for everything from twisty roads to deep ruts. The GX's Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System improves handling on road and maximizes suspension travel off-road.
