If the Lexus GX 460 is any indication, there is still a market for big, truck-based luxury SUVs. We may find these symbols of excess passe, but there's no denying the ride comfort and the easy drivability of the GX 460. And what better way to transport half a dozen people?

The Lexus' transmission has a sport setting, but you can ignore that. The SUV's console is also studded with various controls for handling off road situations. You will probably ignore those, too. We also found a few annoying quirks with the GX 460's electronics, and it suffers from poor fuel economy that caused big SUVs to lose favor in the first place.
