The Lexus GX 460 is a traditional body-on-frame sport utility vehicle based on a version of the Toyota Land Cruiser not sold in North America. A 4.6-liter V8 puts a maximum of 301 horsepower and 329 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission to a full-time four-wheel-drive system with a locking center differential.
The GX 460 is available in three trim levels. A standard GX starts at $52,275 (all prices listed here include a $995 destination charge) and includes SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple's Siri Eyes Free functionality, and preparation for trailer towing. Available options include:
- heated and cooled front seats
- blind spot monitors and rear cross-traffic sensors
- Intuitive Parking Assist
The Premium level adds leather upholstery and mahogany wood accents, including wood trim on the steering wheel and shift knob, and climate controls for the second row seats; sticker price on a Premium is $58,590. The Luxury level installs an air suspension system and switches the second row bench seat for captain's chairs, adds blind spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts as standard, and fits a power mechanism to fold the third row for an asking price of $63,975.
Options available across the line include Lexus's app-based Enform Remote controls, which allows a smartphone to function as a remote starter. A slightly pointless Sport Design appearance package is available on the Premium and Luxury for those who want their SUV to wear front and rear spoilers and some extra chrome accents.
