2008 Lexus GX Review
The GX ranks near the top of its class for delivering elegant Lexus styling and features in a package that's fully capable of going off-road.
The 2008 Lexus GX, which comes in only one trim (the GX 470), is a luxurious sport-utility vehicle that gives its drivers a dose of classiness with the ability to venture off the beaten path. Forbes describes the GX as "a large SUV that's posh, powerful and strikes a balance between on-road refinement and off-road ruggedness." The GX is virtually unchanged for 2008. Some reviewers note that the GX has now been around for several years without a significant redesign. Others say that the GX might be aging, but it isn't outdated.
- "Despite the current trend for manufacturers to build SUVs based on car chassis, Lexus has decided it can hold true to its original truck-based sport-utility roots with the GX 470, keeping its first-rate off-road abilities but refined to offer capable on-road dynamics at a price around $45,000." -- Road and Track
- "In the GX 470, rugged clearly does not mean outdated, and that goes beyond the entertainment choices." -- New Car Test Drive
