Reasons You May Not Like the 2016 Lexus GX 460 – The Cons

#1 Price

Its base MSRP is around $50,000 to the luxury price around $61,000. With payments in the $607 range, it makes paying for a Jaguar sedan or a BMW coupe looks like a steal.

#2 Handling

There are only a few reviews of the 2016 Lexus GX, but they all agree. The GX 460 does not handle well on the road. It's a dream off the road and on terrain but a disappointment on the streets.

#3 Gas Mileage

At anywhere from 15 mpg to 20 mpg the luxury SUV spares no expense. One could argue gas prices will forever remain under $2 a gallon, right?

How the 2016 Lexus GX 460 stacks up to the 2016 Acura MDX

Even though at first glance the Acura seems pleasing, the Lexus seems to beat the Acura MDX in capabilities. First, compare the price. The Acura prices between $8,000 to $10,000 less. Then compare the gas mileage, the Lexus and Acura are about the same in that realm. Now, compare the handling. The Acura wins.

Look again. At $8,000 to $10,000 less the Acura MDX boasts a V6. The 2016 Lexus GX 460 reveals a V8. They both have the same gas mileage.

The biggest downfall of the Lexus is the handling according to critics.
Lexus GX 460- 2, more engine and same gas mileage
Acura MDX-1 Handling

How the 2016 Lexus GX 460 stacks up to the 2016 BMW X5

Both luxury SUVs have comparable prices with the MSRP starting about $53,000. The BMWs out paces the Lexus in gas mileage and handling.
Lexus GX 460- 1, lower initial price
BMW X5-2, gas mileage, and handling

By the way, the writer compared 1 model of the Lexus Crossover to 3 models of BMWs Crossovers. That might have swayed the vote a little. Take note also, the writer only compared the Lexus's weakness to its competitions' strengths. What's the score now?

In conclusion, the 2016 Lexus GX 460 has proven to be a formidable player in the luxury crossover arena. Its customer service unsurpassed and new safety technology puts the 2016 Lexus in a great position to lead the pack.
