18. Lexus GX
Another outdated vehicle is surprisingly the Lexus GX. The big SUV has been on the market since 2010 and is one of the last body-on-frame SUVs around. The Lexus GX has all of the bells and whistles that you’d come to expect in a Lexus, and a V8 engine. But the overall design of the SUV is outdated at best. Buyers can tell that there hasn’t been anything new in over a decade, and the GX is the lowest-selling vehicle in the lineup. If you want a body-on-frame SUV that boasts luxury features, the GX is one of the few.
The GX is not a bad SUV by any means. It offers the usual Lexus refinement and luxury that you’ve come to expect all wrapped up in a rugged package. The GX has never been a volume seller for the Lexus brand, which might be why there has been no upgrade. The V8 engine is still smooth after all this time, and the drive train is versatile enough to tow a boat or a trailer. Unfortunately, there are newer offerings on the market and the Lexus GX is just too outdated compared to those. Sure, you get the luxury features of a newer SUV, but the outdated design is just flat.
