TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 BMW X5 grows even closer to being the do-it-all vehicle in its family. The 2019 Lexus GX 460 delivers formidable capability, but it’s well behind crossover rivals in the ways most drivers use their SUVs. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class can be outfitted to please nearly every luxury-SUV buyer.
