The 2015 Lexus GX460 is an example of what all SUVs should be: It is versatile, stylish, comfortable and powerful.
The exterior design of the GX460 is very masculine. This is in contrast to Lexus’ lower and mid-level SUVs, which have a more feminine design.
The GX460 means business. Under the hood is V8 motor that can pull a trailer up to 6,500 pounds. The engine produces 310hp and 329 pounds of torque – but the key ingredient is that this torque comes at a low RPM.
If you are looking for an adventure, you will be happy to find a downhill traction control system and an advanced four wheel drive system with a torque-sensing limited-slip differential. It also features adjustable damping suspension. This ensures that you have a smooth ride in comfort mode and improved stability in normal and sport modes.
The Lexus GX460 offers a beautifully trimmed leather and wood interior. You will also find plenty of luxury technologies, such as heated and cooled seats, the Lexus Enform app suite, and a 17 speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system.
Because the Lexus GX460 is a large SUV, most people would assume it is difficult to drive and park. This isn’t the case with the GX460. The advanced safety features, such as lane departure alert and blind spot detection, keep you aware of your surroundings.
The Lexus GX460 is one of the most versatile mid-sized SUVs I have ever driven. Most SUVs in this segment only offer two rows of seating, but the GX460 gives you the option of turning the rear cargo area into a third row. This is perfect for families who have two kids, but will occasionally invite their kid’s friends.
Another great feature of the Lexus GX460 is the rear door. Instead of a hatchback door like most SUVs and crossovers, the GX460 swings open like a car door. This makes it really easy open and close.
If you are looking for a luxury SUV that can easily tow the boat and seat the entire family, the Lexus GX460 should be on the top of your list!
