2018 Acura MDX vs. 2018 Lexus GX 460

When you compare the 2018 Acura MDX to the 2018 Lexus GX 460, you’ll quickly notice that:

  • The Acura starts at $44,200*
  • The Lexus starts at $51,855

A price difference of $7,655 will naturally have you questioning how the Lexus justifies its expense. After checking out the Acura’s superior performance, efficiency, features, and safety, you’ll still be unsure exactly where that extra money is going.

2018 Acura MDX

The 2018 Lexus GX 460 fits an absurdly fuel-thirsty 4.8L V8 engine as standard, and yet it can’t go from zero to 60 mph as fast as the Acura’s cutting-edge 3.5L V6. As noted by Edmunds.com, “the GX can feel lethargic owing to its heavy curb weight and economy-minded throttle pedal.” Not exactly compelling, especially for anyone making frequent trips between Plainfield and Aurora.

The new Lexus GX 460 makes a bad habit of demanding extra for features the new MDX is happy to supply as standard. It also skips some of the Acura’s more innovative available features, such as the optional GPS-linked climate control system.

Safety

Acura isn’t content with offering top-of-the-line safety — true to form, they offer it as standard through advanced driver-assistance technologies such as Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow.

If you demand the same level of safety from your 2018 Lexus GX, prepare to dig deep: those features are only available with the Luxury model (MSRP $63,230), and only when you cough up for the available Driver Support package.
