2008 Lexus GX Review
This review was written when the 2008 Lexus GX was new.
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 Others say that the GX might be aging, but it isn't outdated.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- "In the GX 470, rugged clearly does not mean outdated, and that goes beyond the entertainment choices."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
