This is AutoAcademics' video review of the 2014 Lexus GX 460. Are yards of supple leather, an amazingly smooth ride, impressive off-road capability, as well as an arguably attractive exterior enough to keep this aging SUV in buyers' sights?

      Unfortunately, VW hasn't sent us one yet. As soon as they do, you be among the first to know (if you're subscribed). Thanks for watching!

      People don't love the look of the GX but I think it really is the perfect SUV. Hardcore body on frame construction, silky smooth V8, unmatched reliability in a size that you can drive in the city too. Beautiful truck.

      Thanks for the video, I just traded my Durango for a 2014 GX. I love the air-ride suspension.  If the price is to high, wait a year or two and get a "Certified Pre-Owned".

      The GX is quite the luxurious, go-anywhere vehicle. Enjoy your new ride, jolawil! Thanks for watching.

      I have driven the 2016 GX460 and it is impressively smooth and comfortable. Might be on my short list of vehicles in the coming months. I did drive a 2016 X5 which I also really liked but that vehicle starts at $56k and options up quickly. The one I drove had the M package and a few other options and MSRP'd at $71k. Not sure I'd take an X5 off-roading though. Thanks for the awesome review!

      Thank you for the kind words, Jules D. We agree that the GX has a very nice ride and is very capable off-road. And while an X5 can be an entertaining vehicle to drive, we wouldn't recommend taking it off-road, either, if it had the M package with the 20- or 21-inch wheels and tires. LOL Thanks, again, for sharing and for watching, too!

      For some reason, these wheels and tires seem too small for this vehicle.

      +J High Believe it or not, they are 18-in wheels, J High, but as you observed, 20's would fit with no problem. Those 18's with a proper set of tires would probably work better for off-roading, though, which was still a major trait for the vehicle in our review. Thank you for your comments and thanks for watching, too!

      This has normal lockers. Same suspension and lockers as a euro land cruiser so its very off road capable... I drove one last year and it was dead even with an LR3

      @RazorFX That's just a testament to the demographic of Lexus buyers.  Land Rovers were off-road vehicles before they became luxury vehicles.  Lexus SUVs have always been just luxury vehicles, so buyers' mindsets are a little different with those.  Either way, it sounds like you guys have the opportunity to enjoy some good off-roading fun!  And are able to do it in some pretty nice vehicles, too.  Enjoy and be safe!

      @AutoAcademics
       Its a shame because people take their RR's and LR's off road but not their lexus.. We have this great off road course here in central europe and we test even SUV on hard stuff. Q7 is decent if we compare it to the hardcore stuff. Another great 7 seater, just lacks the reliability.

      +RazorFX Thank you for sharing, RazorFX. While we did not take it off-road (Lexus PR frowns upon things like that), the GX definitely appears to be a very capable SUV -- more capable than what most owners would be willing to attempt in their own vehicles, so it's nice to hear some real-world experience from people like you. Thanks for watching!

      Yeah, they're not made for hardcore off-roading, lee michael, but the LX does have some decent capability for where most owners will take them, due to their locking diffs and decent enough ground clearance.  We're located in Georgia, USA.  Thanks for watching!
