Autoblog recently tested the 2014 Lexus GX 460 which starts at $49,085. Fit it with optionals and you can reach $$63,658, as the one tested by the editor. The GX comes with a 4.6-liter V8 making 301 hp and 329 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, which enables it to reach 60 mph from a stand still in 7.8 seconds.

The reviewer spent a very short time off-roading in the new GX, but on the asphalt, the SUV “delivered a smooth Lexus-spec ride” while the luxury interior made it feel like a perfect car for long-distance traveling. The new interior include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, semi-aniline leather upholstery, heated/cooled front seats, powerful sound system and more.

On the down side, the Autoblog was not amazed by the GX’s fuel economy, saying that “drive it like a Prius and you might hit the EPA fuel economy estimates of 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.”
