(MONTREAL) – Canadian drivers will enjoy their first look at the go-anywhere, do-anything luxury SUV at the Montreal International Auto Show. That’s where the next-generation, all-new 2010 Lexus GX 460 makes its Canadian auto show debut.
“Drivers looking for an authentic, body-on-frame SUV will find the luxury market is full of models that emphasize on-road enjoyment at the expense of off-road capability. In this field, the new GX stands head and shoulders above the rest,” noted Larry Hutchinson, Director of Lexus in Canada. “With the new GX 460, our guests will discover once again, why they can turn to Lexus – and no other luxury automaker – for the anytime, anywhere driving confidence that helps deliver more perfect moments of adventure, and the time of their lives.”
The second-generation GX 460 is designed to address two roles. During the week, it delivers the luxury levels of comfort, convenience and versatility that make it the perfect partner for an active, affluent Canadian family. On the weekend, the GX is the family ticket to adventure, delivering uncompromised capability and safety.
The 2010 GX achieves these goals with numerous new standard luxury and safety features, including:
- Performance upgrades that include a new V8 and six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift that provides 14 per cent more power yet is 11 per cent more fuel efficient than the vehicle it replaces.
- Advanced handling and control of a genuine off-roader via through available Crawl Control, the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, Multi-Terrain Select and other technologies.
- A long list of exterior and interior upgrades that contribute to comfort, convenience, utility and luxury, including 18 inch wheels, heated and ventilated front row seats, Smart Key Access with Push Button Start, integrated back-up camera, and much more.
- Enhanced safety for all with Active Front Headrests with whiplash protection, plus front seat knee airbags and second row side airbags to make segment-leading total of 10 airbags.
The whole is wrapped in a package informed by the Lexus L-finesse design language to create a new GX that embodies strength and quality in equal measures. Lexus guests can see the new GX 460 – with a starting MSRP of $68,500 – at the Montreal International Auto Show – January 15-24 at the Palais des congrs.
