If you are looking for both high-end luxury and extreme off-road capability in your next SUV, then look no further than the Lexus GX460. Riding on a reinforced boxed ladder frame, the Lexus GX can conquer all kinds of challenging off-road situations without breaking a sweat. But when it comes time for city night life, the GX's excessively rugged underpinnings produce a ride quality that is decidedly less forgiving than many competitors. Nevertheless, practical incentives like a strong record for reliability and above-average residual values make the Lexus GX a recommended buy for the adventurous, value-driven luxury SUV shopper.

What's New for 2014

The Lexus GX has a number of changes for 2014 including a larger 8-inch touchscreen display (up from seven inches), Lexus' 8th-generation infotainment system, standard LED headlights, and newly available blind-spot monitoring system.

Most importantly, the big rugged SUV now wears the brand’s new design DNA with a revised front and rear treatment. The look is sporty and edgier than in the past, and ties the GX460 with the brand’s new look across its vehicle range.

Choosing Your Lexus GX 460

The GX, which can tow up to 6,500 pounds, brings a host of standard features including four-wheel drive. To help avoid the potential cornering awkwardness of a tall SUV, the GX460 has what Lexus calls a "Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System" that decreases body lean with its massive anti-roll bars, or when needed, automatically relaxes sway control for increased wheel articulation and greater traction off-road.

Under the hood is the brand's familiar all-aluminum 4.6-liter V8, configured in this vehicle to generate 301 horsepower and 329 pound-feet of torque. This sole engine choice is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with a sequential shift mode. The standard full-time four-wheel drive system uses a two-speed transfer case with lockable center differential. The fuel economy numbers are 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway.

Base

The base GX460 includes full-time four-wheel drive, a moonroof, keyless access and start, a 10-way power driver's seat, LED headlights that consume less energy than even the most efficient xenon setups, a backup camera, and a 9-speaker audio system linked to an 8-inch touch screen. On the safety side, every Lexus GX includes 10 airbags, active headrests to reduce the severity of whiplash, and Lexus' Safety Connect telematics system with 24/7 emergency services.

Comfort

The mid-range GX 460 adds navigation as standard equipment. The Comfort trim level includes semi-aniline leather upholstery, heated rear seats, and a blind-spot monitor with a rear cross-traffic-alert function that warns you of oncoming traffic when backing out of a parking spot.

CarsDirect Tip

If you are considering a large body frame SUV, the GX460 offers value in pricing when compared to several competitors as well as good resale value. However, if you don't need serious off-road capabilities, this is not the large luxury SUV for you.
