The dashboard, center stack and steering wheel are an absolute riot of buttons, with knobs and sliding panels that hide more buttons and knobs.
large rear cargo door makes access difficult when space is tight
the problem with this style of door is that when the vehicle is parked by a curb and someone is unloading gear, they have to walk all the way around the open door (and closer to traffic)
enough electronic gadgets to overwhelm a Best Buy clerk
The iPod interface can be annoying.
The 2015 Lexus GX is dressed to the nines with all of the usual luxury appointments and features, and choosing the Premium model earns you the best in infotainment technologies, too. New for this year, Siri Eyes Free is standard across the lineup, and Lexus Enform gains Slacker and upgrades to the iHeart Radio applications.
About the only conventional luxury-SUV feature that's not included in the GX 460 is a power tailgate—the GX has a manual, side-opening rear door instead.
The navigation system in the GX is packaged with Enform, which offers a suite of services delivering weather, stock quotes, and sports scores, among other things, plus a Destination Assist service that allows a remote operator to input program your nav system.
Option-list highlights include a safety-tech package, 330-watt Mark Levinson surround sound, a rear-seat entertainment system, and Intuitive Park Assist.
Smartphone connectivity and power everything give the Lexus GX its grip on luxury.
