One of the few true SUVs left on the market; lots of luxury and technology; solid towing capability
There's two varieties of GX 460--Base and Premium trims. Both share the 4.6-liter V8 engine with variable valve timing and 6-speed automatic transmission. An Eco indicator light in the speedometer lets the driver know when they're getting the best gas mileage -- a combined 17 mph, according to the EPA.
The GX 460 has body-on-frame construction and a limited-slip differential, which helps it achieve usable ruggedness and the quiet cabin Lexus is known for. It also uses the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System to adjust automatically to the terrain. An Adaptable Variable Suspension also works to keep the suspension at the drive's preferred firmness, no matter what the driving conditions. Downhill Assist Control helps with braking and Hill Assist Control helps keep the GX from slipping backward when you take your foot from the brake to apply it to the gas pedal. Optionally, Crawl Control can be added for maneuvering over very difficult terrain at low speeds.
The interior features perforated leather seats with wood trim, which can be upgraded to semi-aniline leather trim. Front seats are 10-way adjustable with heat and ventilation, with the Lexus Memory System for the driver's seat. The 40/20/40 second-row seat can slide and the power third-row seat can fold itself flat into the cargo floor for extra space. The second-row seats are available as heated seats on the base model; it's standard equipment on the Premium.
A backup camera comes standard; so does a first-aid kit, which seems appropriate for a luxury SUV. The GX has power everything, including adjustable steering wheel with cruise control, audio controls and a voice command button for the optional navigation system. The 9-speaker standard audio system has an in-dash 6-disc CD changer, MP3 playback and a USB/auxiliary input with iPod connectivity and streaming audio via Bluetooth. The Premium model adds an auto leveler, heated steering wheel, headlight cleaner, adaptive front lighting, rear air conditioning and a wood-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob.
If the standard list of gadgetry doesn't satisfy your high-tech needs, Lexus is happy to offer more. The base model's options list includes HID headlights, park assist, navigation, a Mark Levinson sound system with 17 speakers, a pre-collision system with dynamic radar cruise control and crawl control, rear seat entertainment system and 3-zone climate control. The Premium model also has a wide-view front and side monitor with not only the dynamic radar and crawl control but also driver attention monitor, lane departure alert and intelligent high beam.
First off, last year this was known as the GX 470. The model name may be ten smaller, but nothing else has diminished--even the SUV's weight has increased by over 400 pounds. The SUV's new 4.6-liter V8 is slightly smaller than last year's, but it has noticeably more power -- 301 hp vs. 263 hp. The transmission is also new, too, a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic.
This is one luxury SUV that's actually utilitarian in addition to being extremely comfortable and quiet. It has a ladder frame like the sport-utes of old and can tow up to 6500 pounds. Ruts and rocks mean nothing to its suspension, and there are enough gadgets inside to keep the non-outdoorsy occupants entertained in the second and third rows of seating.
