2022 Lexus GX vs. Its Competition

2022 Lexus GX
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

With its truck-like construction, the 2022 Lexus GX best squares off against the GMC Yukon and Infiniti QX80, two SUVs with a luxurious outlook, seating for three, and premium amenities inside.

If you can live without the wood trim, look at the Toyota 4Runner.

It’s the same SUV underneath and offers similar off-road tech for a huge discount.

The Volvo XC90 and Mercedes-Benz GLE are far better on-road choices for most users, though, thanks to far superior handling, ride quality, and interior space at more reasonable price tags.

Quick Specs
The 2022 Lexus GX is a dinosaur among luxury SUVs, though a tech upgrade this year at least brings it up to par.
The 2022 GMC Yukon is big and richly appointed, with the technology and sticker price to match.
The 2022 Infiniti QX80 plays the luxury SUV game well with big power and a big price tag, but handling’s less capable.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class doesn’t compromise on interior space or in performance, though the V-8s are taking a year off.
The 2022 Toyota 4Runner trades on its deservedly rugged reputation, but it’s a poor everyday driver.
Low-key luxury lies in the 2021 Volvo XC90’s serene cockpit, in its strong acceleration, and in its gray-wool confines.
