We were attracted to the unique styling and rare color of this GX470. Apparently Lexus made very few ib this Desest Sage color.
We were impressed by how quiet the GX is on the freeway at 75-80 mph. It is substantially quieter than our old Honda Ridgeline, which is one reason we got rid of the Ridgeline.
The GX has a 4.7l V8, but gets similar mileage to our old V6 powered Ridgeline, about 18 mpg. Very good for a V8.
The Mark Levinson stereo is FANTASTIC, and the NAV system is almost identical to the one in our ES350, which makes switching cars much easier.
While the Ridgeline is known to be smooth riding, the GX is smoother, plus the GX has a shorter wheelbase, giving a much tighter turning radius.
