2013 Lexus GX Overview

The 2013 Lexus GX is powered by a V8 engine that reviewers said is underpowered for the SUV’s weight and struggles to get it up to highway speeds. The engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that some reviewers wished offered quicker downshifts. The 2013 GX earns an EPA-estimated 15/20 mpg city/highway, which is decent for the class. Reviewers thought the Lexus GX generally offers a comfortable, composed ride. However, a few critics noticed some body roll in turns and complained about a lack of steering feedback. The 2013 Lexus GX comes standard with full-time four-wheel drive, and is available with off-roading features like hill descent control. Reviewers were impressed with the 2013 GX’s great off-road performance.

Automotive journalists agreed that the seven-seat 2013 Lexus GX has an attractive, well-assembled interior. Leather upholstery and heated and ventilated front seats are standard. Heated outboard second-row seats are available. Some critics thought the seats are comfortable and roomy in all three rows, while others found that the rear seats aren’t well-cushioned and don’t have enough space for adults. The Lexus GX comes standard with a USB port, satellite radio, a rearview camera, a power sunroof and dual-zone climate control. Tri-zone climate control, navigation, a 17-speaker Mark Levinson stereo system, a rear-seat entertainment system and a wide-view front and side camera system are available. Most test drivers thought the 2013 GX’s navigation system and climate and audio controls are intuitive and well-placed. The GX offers up to 91.9 cubic feet of cargo space with both rear rows folded, which is low for the class. Test drivers complained about the side-hinged cargo door, which they said makes it difficult to load cargo.

Other SUVs to Consider

The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser has one of the highest towing capacities in the class, and reviewers said its high-tech off-roading features make it a great performer off the pavement. Test drivers also praised its roomy, comfortable first- and second-row seats and its upscale cabin.

According to reviewers, the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover offers a first-class interior comprised of premium materials and high-tech features. They also liked its quick acceleration and were impressed with the usefulness of the adjustable Terrain Response System for aiding off-road driving.
