2018 Lexus GX – Innovation and New Look
As soon as you see this car, you will realize that its exterior resembles the one on the Toyota 4Runner. Nevertheless, the 2018 Lexus GX has its own identity and personality. It looks modern, elegant, yet bold and even aggressive. It is a car that projects class, respect, power, luxury and an overall sensation of well-being. The front grill stands out because of its aggressive and clean design, as well as the rear of the vehicle and the modern and elegant-looking head and rear lights.
The interior brings all the luxury you would expect from Lexus. This SUV has 7 perfectly-crafted leather seats divided into three different rows. The second one comes in a 40-20-40-split configuration and the last one has, as usual, two seats. Those 5 seats on the last two rows can be folded down. In addition, the dashboard is really elegant and has a very attractive look that is accented by its mahogany wood kits.
One of the nicest features you will find inside the 2018 Lexus GX is the Lexus Infotainment System. It is available through a high-definition touchscreen built into the dashboard and two more set right on the back of both front seats. This System includes 3D navigation and you can choose a special sound package called the Mark Levinson 17-loudspeaker that offers 330 watts surround sound. This is definitely high-end.

These characteristics and the high-quality 4WD framework turn this vehicle into one of the best off-road and on-road SUVs on the market right now; with improved traction for rough tracks and a quiet but powerful on-road performance
In addition, the high-quality Kinetic Dynamic suspension teams up very well with this transmission to allow the driver to execute swish and smooth shifts. Nevertheless, this SUV, like many other luxurious ones on the market, does not perform very well in terms of fuel consumption.
