I'm pretty sure LX means 'luxury' but not quite sure what the other two are.

well as far as i know the LX is the lowest model with a 6 cylinders engine















the GX comes in an 8 cylinders engine but without leather interior and stuff like that































while the VX is the highest in its class its 8 cylinders with top luxury































besides i think that they are only used for jeeps like LandCruisers

Sorry NAD you're wrong on this one. Auto manufacturers use Alpha/Numeric--Letters/Numbers designations to identify trim levels and sometimes engine and suspension upgrades. Toyota currently uses LE,SE,XLE,S and XRS on current Corrolas and Camrys. These cars have a better interior, more options and sometimes bigger engines than the base models. L does usually mean Luxury..LE, LX, LS, LSS are trim upgrades. LX is Hondas, VE was Toyotas (Value) as well as CE. GX was Nissans. I don't recall a VX but that doesn't mean someone didn't use it. Hope that enlightened you. Geo
