Hands down the reliability & resell value. Two things under scrutiny based on lots issues w/21 model.
To each his own I guess. But Times have changed a lot since Toyota/Lexus ruled in quality and resale value. Especially when it comes to resell value in the current market. The Lexus LX600 is just a Landcruiser with barely any luxury and still has old tech. You'd come out better just to get the Landcruiser over the Lexus LX600. I would personally recommend the GV80 over both of them though.

Hello to the community. I just purchased a '21 GV80 with ~3200 miles on it. I did my research, and like a surgeon worked my way through the 'stealership' nonsense. Genesis needs to do something about MSRP +++, but another story in another thread. I was on the hunt since January '22, and the supply, misinformation (intentional and unintentional), empty promises, lack of visibility to the new was one thing. However, with the elimination of the security system 11 due to the chip shortage, Advance models in 6 cyl. not being seen in the horizon, I got fed up. I didn't want the prestige that they are pushing and pushing hard. They seem to be what they saw coming in which blows me away as to why this model only and not the others in 6cyl. I also didn't want 22" rims in NJ. NON-BUENO! I got 2021, which meets all of my needs. The only thing I didn't need was that it is a +, with the 3rd seat (I think....maybe a dog could fit into this seat, lol). Who is complaining, got my car, low miles, excellent sales rep, decent price (not awesome but great in today's market), Vik Black, with the beige interior. The summary here is that it takes a lot of hunting to find the blend/match that one is after, and with some extraordinary hunting, they are out there. Can't wait to get this vehicle, and compliment my Tesla Model S Plaid. Happy Automotive camper to say the least. Good luck and will post pics and update registry when it arrives next week.

Will get some pics posted ASAP. But just picked up a 2022 3.5 Prestige in Savile Silver with the Brown/Beige Interior. Love it. Yes, wireless CarPlay and passive entry door handles on the rear doors would be nice, as would a kick to close/auto close function on the power rear lift gate (Kia Carnival has this with the smart open feature), but none of those ended up being dealbreakers.

Congratulations @Carsplain! Were you cross-shopping the GV80 with any other SUVs?
