TORONTO, ONTARIO – SEPTEMBER 3, 2020 – Revel in the freedom to explore the world on your terms – wherever life’s journey takes you. The Lexus GX 460 combines comfort, luxury and craftsmanship with an astonishing package of handling and control technologies that enhance its authentic construction to make almost any terrain a path.
The Lexus GX 460 delivers genuine off-road capability, starting with a classic body-on-frame design that can take almost any punishment thrown at it – and deliver its driver and passengers to their destination in comfort. Lexus engineers carefully crafted the GX to isolate the cabin from the frame, maximizing its ability to absorb bumps and vibrations so occupants don’t have to. The frame also raises reliability when the going gets tough.
As befitting a true off-roader, the GX conveys a commanding presence. Triple LED headlamps with a pronounced Lexus L motif flank an aggressive front grille, while front and rear spoilers add a dimension of dynamism. Inside, a cabin that’s intentionally sturdy in design is then polished to an elegant finish. The instrument panel appears as if forged from a single block of steel, while wood and aluminum trim provides a delightful contrast. There’s room for seven, with three rows of seats cloaked in leather and providing impressive levels of comfort. Features of note include 3-zone independent automatic climate control, a 4.2” full-colour multi-information display, eight-way power adjustable front seats with driver’s seat memory system, 40/20/40 folding second row seats, and 50/50 third row seats that fold flush with the floor to maximize cargo space.
Wherever the journey takes you, the GX 460 is the ideal travelling companion. Its 301 peak horsepower 4.6-litre V8 delivers powerful and smooth on-road performance. A six-speed super electronically controlled automatic transmission features shift points optimized for smooth effortless acceleration and spirited responsiveness. Fitted with a gate-type shifter, GX drivers may also enjoy a manual shift experience.
Meanwhile, its 329 lb-ft of torque – including ample low-end torque – that makes the GX 460 an excellent tow vehicle with a 2,948 kg (6,500 lb) rating. The automatic load leveling rear air suspension and trailer sway control brake system enhance driver control while towing.
The GX 460 indulges a passion for adventure with an array of innovative handling and control technologies. Full-time four-wheel-drive with active traction control makes the GX 460 more than capable of carrying Lexus guests off the beaten path and back again, while the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System and a panoramic view monitor with driver and passenger camera plus under-floor view enhance the driver’s mastery over any terrain.
Because a great adventure deserves a great soundtrack, the GX 460 is fitted with a 17-speaker 330-watt 7.1-channel surround sound Mark Levinson audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel-mounted controls. Other technology features include a voice-activated Lexus navigation system and eight-inch high-resolution display.
As a Lexus, every GX 460 is impressively equipped with state of the art safety features, headlined by Lexus Safety System +. This portfolio of active safety technologies supports the driver’s awareness and decision-making under a range of traffic conditions and contingencies. Other safety systems include 10 airbags, the Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and front and rear clearance sonar systems.
