2009 Lexus GX 470 vs. Its Competition

2009 Lexus GX 470

The Land Rover LR3 offers V-8 power and an interior unlike any other in the class.

To some that’s seen as character; to others it feels cluttered.

The BMW X5 also has three rows of seating, plus a choice of V-6 and V-8 engines, though ride quality can be choppy.

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a good deal more expensive than the Lexus GX 470, but it offers three rows of seating; a nice, settled ride; and a choice of V-6, V-8, and diesel engines.
