Many luxury car companies add luxury crossovers to their lineups as afterthoughts, but not Lexus. One might assume a larger Lexus crossover would simply be the luxury version of a Toyota Highlander or some other common SUV. Instead, the 2021 Lexus GX arrives with a lot more flavor, personality, and attitude than the more reserved members of the lineup.
Based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, an SUV that already combined luxury with capability, the Lexus GX magnifies everything the Land Cruiser was and makes it stand alone. The boxier shape calls to mind the larger SUVs from a few years ago, but the bold grille, wide body accents, and powerful body lines give it a unique attitude at every trim. Characteristics of each of the vehicle’s three trims are laid out in the chart below.
|GX 460||6,500 lb Towing Capacity||7-Passenger Seating|
|GX 460 Premium||Three-Zone Automatic Climate Control||Navigation System with Lexus Enform App Suite|
|GX 460 Luxury||Semi-Aniline Leather Interior Trim||Power-Reclining and Folding Third Row|
There may not be a lot of trims, but the three available offer a little something for everyone who wants a 2021 Lexus GX. The GX 460 is ideal for anyone who simply wants the performance and comfort of a Lexus SUV without spending money on extra features. The GX 460 Premium, although sitting firmly in the middle of the other two trims, specializes in interior technology, making it a mobile playground for many tech-obsessed drivers and passengers. The GX 460 Luxury is exactly what its name says it is, the most luxurious version of the GX. Although still surprisingly capable when pushed, the GX 460 Luxury is the home of some of the best comfort and convenience features Lexus has ever assembled on four wheels.
