    Comparison: 2018 Lexus GX 460 vs 2018 Audi Q7

    Drivers who want luxury SUV that’s capable of towing and off-roading but comfortable and luxe for the whole family may want to know how the 2018 Lexus GX 460 compares to the 2018 Audi Q7.

    Both models offer an array of features and have impressive performance specs, but one automaker gives you a better-equipped base model and more advanced safety tech.

    If you’re in the San Jose area and want to know more, check out our full review then visit us for a test drive:

    Safety and Convenience Tech

    Lexus GX 460

    The 2018 GX is available as a base model, as well as Premium and Luxury trims. Upper trims guarantee a luxury experience, but even the base trim is well equipped. It features a backup camera, Trailer Sway Control, LED headlamps and daytime running lights, and the Lexus Enform suite of apps: Safety Connect, Service Connect, and Remote. Additionally, all models have a power moonroof, Lexus Memory System, a reclining/sliding middle row, and dual-zone climate control.

    Available tech on the GX 460 includes a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Intuitive Parking Assist, rain-sensing wipers, Pre-Collision System with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Driver Attention Monitor, Lane Departure Alert, intelligent high beams, and wide-view front and side monitor.

    Audi Q7

    The Q7 comes in Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trims. The Q7 Premium features a rear parking camera, Audi pre sense basic and city, Audi drive select, and Xenon plus headlights, but does not come with an equivalent to the Lexus Enform Apps. The base also features a sunroof and three-zone climate control, but lacks a memory system and sliding or reclining middle row.

    Available features include a blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, top-view camera system, and lane-keep assist. It does not come with the option for a wide-view front or side monitor.

    Performance and Towing

    Lexus GX 460

    The 2018 Lexus GX 460 has a 4.6-liter V8 engine that makes 301 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It features standard full-time four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case and a TORSEN Torque-Sensing Limited Slip Center Differential, as well as a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System to give you a smooth, controlled ride on-road or off. The Lexus SUV has a towing capacity of 6,500 pounds.

    Audi Q7

    The 2018 Q7 has two engine options. The base is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 that makes 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, or buyers can upgrade to a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine that produces 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. Both engines have an 8-speed automatic transmission. The base engine can tow up to 4,400 pounds, while the V6 can tow up to 7,700 pounds.

    While the upgraded Audi has a higher towing capacity than the GX, it doesn’t come available with a TORSEN locking differential or a kinetic dynamic suspension system, which makes it less capable off-road. Plus, opting for the V6 adds over $6,000 to the base price.
