Top 5 Reviews and Videos of the Week: 2019 Lexus GX 460 Gets Up There

2019 Lexus GX 460

The 2019 GX 460 is one of Lexus’ older models and one of the dwindling number of truck-based SUVs on the market. reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder took on the task of finding out if the GX 460 still holds its own in the modern SUV market, including on a lengthy trip from Chicago to Detroit and back.

What did Wiesenfelder find out during his time with the big — but not biggest — Lexus SUV? For starters, the GX is a series of trade-offs. Being truck-based has its advantages, like towing capacity and off-road capability, but disadvantages like poorer on-road ride quality and manners. The most interesting compromise, however, has to do with the GX’s age.

“Add this to my growing list of backhanded compliments: The GX is old enough that its multimedia system isn’t maddening,” Wiesenfelder gratefully writes. “Almost all Lexuses have a display in their dashboard controlled by Remote Touch Interface: a mouselike device or touchpad on the center console. Despite their years of revisions, we just don’t like it, and we’re not alone. The GX, however, has a simple touchscreen and — again, because it’s older — doesn’t incorporate the controls for too many essential features.”

Wiesenfelder’s full review is linked below, where it places third among our most popular reviews of the week.

As a special treat to our video viewers, reviewer Aaron Bragman got behind the wheel of a $420,000 Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV to show what makes it so special and worth so much money, as well as what might make some viewers question spending more than the price of a house on a single vehicle. The Cullinan video joins the list at No. 2 this week, behind the video of our first drive of the updated BMW 3 Series. Our first look at the 2019 Ram 1500’s trick Multifunction Tailgate is third, followed by our trip to a drag strip in a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody and then a first look at Toyota’s lightly updated 2020 Tundra full-size pickup.
