Once again Lexus has pretty much left the GX alone from 2018 to 2019. Now standard are Enform Safety Connect that automatically summons help in case of a crash, stolen vehicle or other emergency, and Service Connect that posts automatic updates about the health of your Lexus. Also standard is Enform Remote that can start the engine, engage the climate control, as well as other services. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is standard on the Luxury grade and is now a no-cost option on the lower two grades. See the 2019 Lexus GX models for sale near you
Assuming you're really serious about the 2019 Lexus GX, even though there are more modern rivals, go for the Luxury trim. That's because it's eligible for the Mark Levinson audio system upgrade, and its adaptive suspension improves ground clearance over the base model, just in case there's some off-roading to be done.

The GX 460 Premium ($55,950) adds upgraded 18-in alloy wheels, heated/ventilated front and second-row outboard seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, rain-sensing wipers and LED fog lights. Options include second-row captain's seats and leather seating.
The GX 460 Luxury ($64,780) includes all the above, plus an adaptive air suspension with auto-leveling rear suspension, headlamp washers, power-folding/self-dimming exterior mirrors, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a heated steering wheel, semi-aniline leather upholstery, a power-folding third-row seat and a cargo area tonneau cover. Available only on Luxury grade is the Driver Support Package with navigation, Mark Levinson premium surround-sound audio, a Pre-Collision System with adaptive cruise control, driver attention monitor, lane-departure warning, automatic highbeams, and Wide-view Front and Side Monitor System and Crawl Control for automated low-speed off roading.
The Sport Design package comes with unique 18-in alloy wheels and a chrome exhaust tailpipe tip, redesigned side mirror housings, second-row captain's chairs and bespoke front and rear bumpers.
The Luxury model is also eligible for a 330-watt/17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, a dual-screen rear entertainment system and wide-view front and side parking cameras.
Cargo capacity measures 11.6 cu ft. behind the third-row seats. Power-fold that row into the floor for a more reasonable 36.5 cu ft. With the second-row seats folded down, the GX can haul a healthy 64.7 cu ft. However, the unusual lift gate is hinged on the passenger side, so it opens toward the curb on American roads. Not the most convenient design for curbside loading, but it does have a flip-up window.

2019 Acura MDX -- Good equipment levels for the money, great on-road manners.
2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport -- For something more up to date and stylish, yet still luxurious and capable, this fits the bill. Third-row occupant space is not quite as generous as in the GX, though.
Used Audi Q7 -- With standard 3-row seating and premium appointments, this is a logical alternative. Certified pre-owned (CPO) pricing could save you thousands over a brand-new GX.
