2014 Lexus GX460 vs 2014 Acura MDX

If You’re Shopping for a 2014 Lexus GX 460 Around Kentucky, We have News…

You know the 2014 Lexus GX 460. Kentucky drivers are aware of the Lexus brand; it’s one of the more popular luxury brands around and this is their latest luxury crossover. This Lexus SUV is a contender in its class too, thanks to some features that have received a little extra attention:

  • A reliable and powerful V6 engine
  • Built-in rearview camera
  • Versatile third row of seating

Do those features sound nice? Would you like them without the “luxury” level of pricing often found on Lexus vehicles? Then maybe you should look at the 2014 Acura MDX. The GX 460 starts at $49,085 (MSRP), but drivers can put themselves behind the wheel of the MDX for only $42,290 (MSRP).*

Over $6,000 in savings is quite a bit, but we know you may want more. It’s okay, the MDX can deliver it. First, you’ll find more savings in the way of fuel economy. The GX 460’s overpowered V6 causes its fuel economy to tank down to only 20 mpg on the highway. The MDX’s EPA-estimated 28 mpg highway (6-speed automatic transmission models),** on the other hand, means that the savings will just keep adding up.

Those other features, the rearview camera and versatile third row seating? You’ll find them on the MDX as well. And yet, despite costing less, the MDX also includes other features that Lexus doesn’t, such as:

  • LED headlights
  • Leather-trimmed seating
  • Perimeter and exterior lighting
  • Power liftgate

We don’t think you should take our word for it, though. The 2014 Acura MDX deserves a test drive; visit a Kentucky Acura Dealer and take a look for yourself.
