The Lexus GX is a full-size luxury SUV model produced and sold by the Lexus luxury vehicle division of Toyota. Within the Lexus vehicle catalog’s SUV lineup, the GX is sized and priced between the Lexus RX midsize luxury SUV and the Lexus LX full-size luxury SUV.
The Lexus GX (Grand Crossover) was first released in 2002 and functions as the luxury counterpart to the Toyota 4Runner and Toyota Land Cruiser Prado (a smaller and Japanese market-exclusive Land Cruiser variant) off-road centric models. The GX debuted at the 2002 North American International Auto Show with its 2003 model year production vehicle hitting dealerships before the end of the year.
Still in its second generation, which debuted at the Chinese Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition in 2009, the Lexus GX is most notable for its size, power, and off-road capabilities. Its top rivals in the full-size SUV class include the GMC Yukon, the Infiniti QX80, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, and the Volvo XC90.

- Pros: The Lexus GX full-size luxury SUV handles off-road driving well for a luxury model, provides a quiet cabin experience despite its size and power, and comes with a lot of standard driver-assistance safety features.
- Cons: The third-row of seating in the GX is cramped and also limits available cargo space. Additionally, the model is overdue for a redesign, having been in its second generation for over 10 years.
