2020 Lexus GX Prices, Reviews, and Pictures

Overview

The brand’s mid-sized luxury SUV, the 2020 Lexus GX, offers three rows of seating and seven passengers. With its strong body-on-frame design, rugged off-road capabilities, and ability to tackle steep trails and rocky ravines with ease, it stands out from other luxury SUVs in the segment. You’d expect this SUV to have quiet cabin, smooth ride quality, and plenty of comfort amenities. Its shortcomings include a hard-bottomed second row seat and poor fuel economy. The GX was also last updated in 2010. The GX is still a capable three-row SUV that combines luxury and genuine off-road abilities.

What’s new for 2020?

The 2020 Lexus GX has received a number of upgrades from Lexus. The GX’s sheetmetal has been improved by a new spindle grille. Also, the license-garnish, emblem and side-hinged backdoor have been upgraded. The standard specification now includes triple-beam LED headlights and Atomic Silver joining the range of exterior colors. The GX’s cabin features new details on the shift knob and steering wheel, as well as two USB ports in the rear seat. All models now include the Lexus Safety System+ suite amenities, which includes driver assistance features.

Pricing and Which One To Buy

The 2020 Lexus GX460 base model comes with enough standard features for most buyers in this market. The SUV is available on standard 18-inch wheels. All models come with exterior amenities like automatic LED headlights, daytime running lamps, illuminated running boards, and heated, power-adjustable mirrors with integrated turn signals. You can adjust the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and have ten power-adjustable front chairs. You will also find standard features like keyless entry and ignition and dual-zone automatic cooling, faux leather upholstery and an auto-dimming backview mirror. All GX SUVs come with driver-assistance features such as blind spot monitoring and lane-keeping aid.

Engine, Transmission, & Performance

2020 Lexus GX will continue to have one engine, a 4.6-liter V-8 with 301 horsepower and 329 Lb-ft torque. This engine is paired with an all-wheel drive and a six speed automatic transmission. The standard Lexus Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, which aims to improve traction on off-road adventures, is included. The GX clocked in at 7.2 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph during our testing. However, we have tested other models that were much faster. The sprint was completed by an Audi Q7 equipped with the V-6 engine. A BMW X5 xDrive50i took just 4.2 seconds. Although the GX is very smooth on pavement, it excels off-road. This SUV is a great choice for those who want a vehicle that can be used outdoors. Its versatility is further enhanced by its 6500-pound towing capability.

Fuel Economy and Real World MPG

The GX will not win any fuel economy awards. The all-wheel-drive SUV gets a combined 15/19 mpg in the city and highway according to the EPA. This puts it in a class behind luxury SUVs like the Lincoln Aviator which achieves 17/24 mpg with all-wheel drive. During our 200-mile highway fuel efficiency test, the GX averaged just 20 mpg.

Interior, Comfort, & Cargo

The GX received a complete redesign by Lexus in 2010. This may be one reason why the cabin is somewhat outdated. While the interior looks luxurious with wood and leather, there are some hard plastics that look out of place for a vehicle this expensive. The front row passengers have a comfortable and elevated seating position. However, the second row seats are hard and flat, making them a difficult space for children. The GX does an excellent job keeping road noise out of its cabin. It also maintains a calm interior, even at high speeds. The Lexus has 11.6 cubic feet of cargo space in the third row, and 46.7 cubic feet in the second. The cargo space is 64.7 cubic feet when the third and second rows are folded. This is significantly less space than the Audi Q7, which has 14.2 cubic feet more behind the third row, 35.7 cubes behind the second and 69.6 cubes behind the first.

Connectivity and Infotainment

The GX has a wide range of tech features. Base models include a nine-speaker audio system and an infotainment system controlled by an 8.0 inch touchscreen. All models include Bluetooth connectivity standard, which allows for hands-free calls and SiriusXM satellite radio. A dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system with integrated navigation is part of the available tech features. A 17-speaker Mark Levinson soundsystem is also available.
