It’s easy to understand why the 2019 Lexus GX may have a bit of an identity crisis. It’s born to crawl over rocks and play in the mud, it offers plenty of room for people and cargo, and it has the creature comforts expected from a luxury brand. Expect to fill up your gas tank often, however.
The 2019 Lexus GX 460 is a large SUV that seats seven. Buyers will choose between base, Premium and Luxury trim levels. All versions get a V8 engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive is standard.
Blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert become optional for the 2019 model year.
One look at the 2019 Lexus GX and you know that it’s made to go off the beaten path. Its tall, square body hints at its offroading prowess, and its body-on-frame construction is a nod to its truck roots. Up front, the marque’s “spindle” grille sits between two large, winged headlamps. Ample chrome touches along the vehicle serve as reminders of the GX’s luxury status. The rear door is hinged on the right, which can be both a convenience and a drawback.
Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, LED daytime running lamps, running boards, roof rails, privacy glass and a power moonroof. Higher trims bring in LED fog lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a windshield de-icer, headlamp washers and power-folding mirrors.
One thing that is immediately evident in the cabin of the 2019 GX, there’s no shortage of buttons. Though crowded, the center stack allows easy access to all of the controls. The posh materials used inside, such as mahogany wood trim, are befitting of a luxury vehicle. The front seats provide abundant support, especially for the driver and passenger. The 40/20/40-split second-row bench seat and flat-folding third row allow for several configurations for cargo and people. Second-row captain’s chairs are available. Cargo capacity is 11.6 cubic feet behind the third row, 46.7 cubic feet behind the second row, and 64.7 cubic feet behind the front-row seats. That’s a bit low for the segment.
Base models come with dual-zone climate control, simulated leather upholstery, power front seats and a power steering column. Move up from the base model, and you’ll get amenities such as heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, leather upholstery, three-zone automatic climate control, a heated steering wheel and power-reclining and -folding third-row seats.
Under the hood of the 2019 Lexus GX is a 4.6-liter V8 engine that cranks out 301 horsepower and 329 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive also is standard. When properly equipped, the GX can tow 6,500 pounds.
Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 15/18 mpg city/highway, which is near the bottom of the segment.
When driving the GX, it’s apparent that Lexus favored function over flash. It’s slow to accelerate, and its heft keeps it from being responsive. One surprise, though, is how it handles for being such a big vehicle. It’s spry for its size and corners well. Body lean isn’t an issue.
As expected with a luxury brand, the 2019 GX is packed with infotainment and safety features. Standard amenities include a nine-speaker sound system with a CD player, an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth compatibility, two USB ports, and Lexus’ Enform emergency and remote vehicle services platform. A navigation system is optional. A 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system and a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system are available on the upper trim.
Standard safety features include a rearview camera. Move up to the Luxury trim, and the Driver Support package can add adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic braking, front-view and sideview cameras, a driver attention monitoring system and lane departure warning.
