2011 Lexus GX460

Sometimes, the extra punch of a V8, a few additions, and a smooth ride are all it to push an SUV out of the doldrums. Many full-size SUVs that six or seven will get your (or basketball team) where you to go, and at a much better gas mileage. But the GX460 is easily one of the best full-power people movers and only has to contend with the QX56. We only wish the was a little more elegant and the a little less, on this SUV.

The first impression we had the GX 460 arrived for a week of testing Who brought us a Ford Explorer? No against the Dearborn automaker, since you can pick up a 2012 for just $28,000, but the Lexus GX 460 is not a stunner. There’s a bit of chunkiness to the without the sleekness we love the Lexus brand. Going is definitely possible, judging the more modern-looking Jeep Cherokee. The QX56 we drove spring was chunkier than the GX but then that vehicle we will test soon in the version) was a top pick. The LX 460 has more of an SUV look – not that distinct, and not massive. No one even asked brand of SUV we were driving, was unusual since we always get question.

Engine and handling

Under the Lexus has equipped the GX 460 with a 4.6-liter, 301-horsepower, 32-valve V8 that is just begging to through snow. Unfortunately, in mid-December, our testing areas is blanketed in dead grass, but we did to find a dirt road to out the full-time 4WD, which is to avoid slippage on many kinds of road conditions. We had no driving through mud and wet sandy on a deserted farm road. the engine a few times just the vehicle lurch forward as the wheels keep you straight.

the Grand Cherokee, the GX 460 lets you set the height of the vehicle – low, or high. These are temporary since the vehicle returns to the position after a while. The GX 460 a kinetic-stabilizing system also in the Toyota Land Cruiser. our main takeaway from the is that it beats out many SUVs, but can’t compete our all-time pick for the smoothest in an SUV, which is the 2011 GL-350 BlueTEC.

Our test car still behaved on just about any pavement – or thereof. Thinking back to the both cars kept the smooth without any uncomfortable

Seating in the third row is quite for anyone who is not in grade school. space in the back is ample, but not so. Some might call the GX 460 a for this reason: You are not going to fit luggage in the back like you with a Chevy Tahoe. the size of the GX 460 is closer to the Ford or the QX56 than the Ford or, say, a Cadillac SRX.

Tech features

The GX 460 is quite in terms of tech features, we have to say that Lexus is now on a few past accomplishments and has not changed of the features in some time. For there is a lane-departure alert that beeps at you when you out of your lane, and it works well, although we found the to be a little too startling. The adaptive control on the GX 460 also works easing you from the rear of the car in front of you. We wanted a bit obvious controls for choosing the for the cruise control to start though.

The GX 460 has a pre-collision warning that monitors your using an infrared camera. If you are away from the windshield, at something in the road, the car will at you to pay attention.(This only happens if the scanning in front of the car sense an The sensors scan your forward position based on width, eye position, and your and alert you when the sensors a dramatically different face or do not sense the normal eye and mouth

This is not quite the same as the assist features on, say, the CLS63. which knows if head is swaying side to and if you have been driving too The GX 460 does not tell you to take a from driving, but warns you if you are to plow into a brick

Like many Lexus the GX 460 also has a few interesting extra features. You can push a button to small sprayers just the headlights to clean them. you push a button to heat the wheel, you start getting right away. The adaptive don’t just turn to the steering column but follow the of the road. In the second row seats, can turn on adjustable seat that start sending to their lower extremities away.


All of this luxury at a price. Well, two prices. One is the of the car, at $64,679 as tested. significantly more than full-size SUVs from automakers, a bump up from the 4WD of the QX56 (priced at $61,800), is arguably more distinctive in and offers more space, and pricier than the V8 version of the GL450 (priced at $62,570) offers a better ride. The model can be had for $53,045, if you’re to forgo some frills. The “price” is in fuel economy. The GX 460 is rated for about 20MPG for driving, but we clockedin at about our highway tests. City is rated at 15MPG.

Those are prices, but we still felt the GX 460 some exceptional features. The 4WD is a above what we have in the past, clinging to the mud and keeping the car as an arrow. The tech features what you will find in a sedan. Pushing a button to off the headlights just makes you this Lexus offers unique. We’ll pick the for a smoother ride, and the QX56 for the and styling, but the GX 460 has power and AWD performance.
