Overview

What's New in the 2018 Lexus GX 460?

Semi-aniline leather (a special leather that goes through a particular dyeing process) now covers the bench seat of the Luxury model. And captain's chairs for the second row are now part of the Luxury model's optional Sport Design package. See the 2018 Lexus GX models for sale near you

Which GX 460 is the Best?

Assuming you're really serious about the 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.

How Much Does a 2018 Lexus GX 460 Cost?

The 2018 Lexus GX 460 premium midsize SUV comes in base and Luxury trim levels.

The base GX 460 ($53,150) includes 18-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, roof rails, LED low-beam headlights, keyless entry with push-button ignition, a power tilt-telescopic steering wheel with automatic tilt-away, 10-way power front seats with driver's-side memory, synthetic leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, electro-luminescent gauges, a rearview camera, slide/recline second-row seats, a trip computer with a 4.2-in display, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 120-volt outlet in the cargo area, Bluetooth (for both phone and audio), Siri Eyes Free voice command functionality and a 9-speaker audio system with an 8-in touchscreen, a 6-CD changer, two USB ports, satellite radio and HD Radio.

A Premium package adds high-gloss 18-in wheels, LED fog lights, mahogany interior trim, perforated genuine leather upholstery, heated/cooled front seats, heated second-row outer seats, tri-zone climate control with a smog sensor, a wood/leather steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, parking sensors front and rear, voice controls, enhanced Bluetooth and the further option of captain's chairs in the second row. This bundle also has a hard-drive-based navigation system that features Lexus Enform, which lets you either plan trips from home using a Lexus-exclusive online search called eDestination or assign a smartphone for this purpose with the downloadable Enform mobile app.

The Luxury ($64,525) includes all the above, plus an adaptive air 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.

The Sport Design package comes with its own design of 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.

Additional options include dynamic cruise control, lane-departure alert and Crawl Control for automated low-speed off-roading.

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 tailgate 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.

Competition

2018 Lexus GX 460 vs the competition

2018 Acura MDX -- Good equipment levels for the money, great on-road manners.

2018 BMW X5 -- With superior handling and an optional third row, the X5 is the driver's SUV in this class. But don't even think about it if you're the off-roading type.

2018 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.
