The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Toyota 4Runner is just as brawny as it looks off-road, yet much better than you'd probably suspect on the highway. The 2013 Lexus GX 460 plays to a niche audience, as a luxury SUV for those who need serious towing ability and body-on-frame ruggedness combined with Lexus refinement; but there are too many factors limiting its appeal for normal family use.
