BMW X5 vs 2020 Lexus GX

2020 BMW X5

Once upon a time, you dreamt of a posh horse-and-carriage carrying you to fancy balls, but now reality calls your name.

Dropping children off at school and toting groceries home, though, will seem like an elegant adventure in a luxury SUV. Both the 2020 BMW X5 and Lexus GX make you feel like royalty when you drive through the streets of Jackson, Clinton, and Ridgeland.

BMW of Jackson knows how to make fairy tales come true by introducing you to their line of luxury SUVs and sedans.

Between the BMW X5 and Lexus GX, though, which one will be the perfect blend of reality and fantasy for you? We will reveal the hidden but definite differences between these vehicles.


Interior Amenities Fit for Royalty

BMW X5 Cargo

Looking for enough cargo space for the royal splendors you bring home from weekly outings or vacations? The X5 delivers the goods with a cargo capacity of a stunning 72.3 cubic feet. Only 64.7 cubic feet of available space exists in the GX.

Many cars––including the X5 and GX––feature the comfort of heated seating, but did you know that the X5, unlike the GX, offers heated front armrests?

Another difference between the two vehicles lies in the fact that the X5 supplies standard three-stage heated front seats. While heated front seats are available in the GX, they don’t come standard. Let your body luxuriate in the warm decadence!


BMW X5 Technology Features2020 BMW X5 vs Lexus GX: Technology Options

Slipping into the driver’s seat of either vehicle, you reach for the touchscreen to access music and navigational apps or place a call to a friend or family member.

In the BMW X5, the Live Cockpit Professional provides two touchscreen displays at an extravagant 12.3 inches to view your directions or input your music. The Lexus GX gives you a digital touchscreen as well, but it only spans eight inches.

Putting your car in gear, navigational tools help you drive safely and see what’s on the road in front of you. The X5 keeps your focus on the road by projecting information––such as speed and directions––directly onto the windshield, otherwise known as a head-up display.

The GX displays similar information, but you must divert your attention and drop your head down to see it on the screen.


BMW X5 vs Lexus GX: Performance & Fuel Economy

Obviously, both the X5 and GX achieve speeds faster than a horse and carriage, but do they differ in levels of performance?

When you get your vehicle in gear, the X5 delivers 335 horsepower, while the GX conveys 301 horsepower.

The fuel economy between both cars speaks volumes in that the X5 provides an EPA-estimated 21 city/26 highway MPG, and the GX gets an EPA-estimated 15 city/19 highway MPG.
