Archaic, but still no other poser-SUV is can compare to this real 4x4, except the also archaic Mitsubishi Pajero and Mercedes G-Wagon.

2020 GX facelift:

We thought grilles were big before? This is comically bad. To me this definitely falls under the "why even bother" category.

Whilst I really like the LandCruiser for it's capabilities, I never really got the reasoning behind a Lexus version of it; The grille is huge, works least of any Lexus here(givne the rest is a rugged Toyota Off Road vehicle, not a posh CUV), but probably won't be anything to talk about after the next couple of BMWs and AUdis....

In the US, at least, I imagine customer service at the Lexus dealer and service station are way (WAY) better than it is at Toyota, so....

As for the facelift, the clear tailights are very early 2000s, and the interior looks dated (and appears to be doing very little to hide its Toyota roots).

Yes and no. Although the 4Runner also sits on the same J150 platform, the GX is a more direct cousin of the Land Cruiser Prado, as noted in the thread title and seen on the previous page.

This is in desperate need of a clean sheet redesign.

There is no denying that; Whilst as a LandCruiser Prado it makes sense, and the LCs are traditionally around for ages, as a Lexus, it's a whole different story.

The chassis dynamics are not commensurate with the price at all.

I think dynamics are one thing, let's say a Range Rover also has no specific dynamics at this (or even significantly higher) price point, but people accept that as off road capability is part of teh brand DNA and expectation; Thus, in a similar story, this is a fine Toyota LandCruiser, which has a similar expectation in offroadability.

But a Lexus is expected to have top notch NVH, ride, etc., and IMO there a LandCruiser is simply not where a Lexus should be, driving dynamics included as well, but then again, Lexus is not a brand bought by handling enthusiasts (LFA aside)
