The GX looks like a huge, lumbering SUV, but that's mostly a misleading trick of the eye. The GX is actually shorter and narrower than competitors like the Acura MDX and Buick Enclave. It's the SUV's height that makes it seem bigger.

At 73.8 inches tall, it's 5.6 inches taller than the MDX and 1.3 inches taller than the Enclave. It's more than 4 inches narrower than both, as well. This added height and narrower stance — along with nearly 700 pounds more weight than the MDX — contribute to the body lean the GX exhibits.

The GX is handsome, with intricate headlights, a strong grille and lots of sharp angles befitting an SUV. It sure doesn't try for a streamlined approach, as does its larger sibling, the LX 570.
