2019 LEXUS GX 460 VS. 2019 INFINITI QX60

SUVs like the Lexus lead the competition in performance because they have off-road capabilities, which models in the Infiniti line lack. In fact, the Lexus GX is noted for its superior off-road handling, in general - not just in comparison to the Infiniti SUV. 

The lack of off-road capabilities could be a deal-breaker for families and companies that regularly transport clients - specifically those who plan on using it for vacations or work retreats. The GX 460 is great for large families and company vehicles because they are designed with long road trips in mind. 

Luxury and Convenience

The interior design in the 2019 Lexus GX 460 is better, too:

  • Higher-quality materials
  • Large cabin
  • Ample seating areas with more legroom
  • Easily accessible technology
  • Impressive sound system
  • Convenient interior controls

The third-row seating and back-end design limit storage capacity slightly, but not if you use it primarily for transporting clients, guests, or family members. Even with a full load of passengers, the cargo area still has plenty of room for skiing gear, luggage, groceries, and most professional work tools and supplies.


Usually, decisions like these come down to affordability, and the monthly auto payment is only part of that equation. Buyers also need to consider:

  • Gas prices that fluctuate dramatically and without warning
  • Insurance
  • Maintenance
  • Repairs
  • Additional costs, usually associated with entertainment subscriptions

Although a good price for its class, the standard package for the Infiniti QX60 demands numerous compromises and includes few features. A fully loaded model is not really much of a bargain at $55,000 or more (manufacturer's suggested retail price) - just shy of what you can expect to pay for a top-of-the-line Lexus SUV.


While the GX 460 and the QX-60 seem very similar on the surface, a closer comparison proves that the Lexus GX 460 is the superior SUV. In fact, should you decide to go with an Infiniti, reviewers suggest shopping for a used model instead of a new one because it has not changed much since its 2012 introduction.

No matter what you use it for, the Lexus GX 460 is a better choice than the QX60, according to both critics and owners. In particular, it dominates in both luxury and technology, and new models cost significantly less than brands like Infiniti. Further, the off-road capabilities of the Lexus make it the only choice for buyers who plan on using it for off-road activities.
