Supreme All-Terrain Luxury
A dynamic expression of the Lexus L-finesse philosophy, the ‘Dual Concept’characteristics of the GX create a highly capable and sophisticated SUV that is equally at home deep in the country side as it is in the center of the city. Based on a sophisticated ‘Body on Frame’ platform, the body shell is built on an extremely strong chassis frame that handles the twisting forces of driving over rough terrain, and isolates the cabin for smooth and refined ride comfort, off-road and on-road. The powerful V8 engine combines outstanding torque for off-road driving with smooth on-road driving performance, together with excellent fuel economy.
The muscular exterior styling projects strength and precision, showing the contemporary Lexus SUV family DNA in the distinctive spindle grille, compact 3-eye LED headlamps, and the LED rear combination lamps. In the cabin, the blend of power and elegance is expressed in the solid horizontal lines and soft materials. The focused driving position provides outstanding information and control for commanding off-road driving, together with relaxed on-road cruising. Advanced safety technologies contribute to peace-of-mind wherever the inspiration to explore may take you.
The GX460 is one of most capable 4WD vehicles ever built. At its heart is a full-time 4WD system that gives maximum traction on slippery surfaces like snow, mud and ice, while a rugged new TORSEN® LSD (Limited Slip Differential) automatically directs power to the wheels that need it most. In addition, to ensure that as many wheels as possible stay in contact with the ground, Lexus developed an electronically modulated KDSS (Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System). When driving off-road, KDSS virtually disconnects the front and rear stabilizer bars so each wheel can apply traction independently to cope with very rough terrain.
The GX460 is available with the bespoke Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound System (Optional), which is among the finest in-car entertainment systems available today. Supplying 5.1-channel audio, the key to its superlative 330 watt performance is 17 speakers, each one custom-engineered for its acoustic location within the cabin. Together with the 8-inch EMV (Electro Multi-Vision) display, it offers a complete home theater experience that incorporates an in-dash DVD player, and 2 USB ports/mini-jack for an iPod® or other media player. The GX460 is also available with a rear seat entertainment system (Optional) which features 7-inch screens mounted in the back of the front seat headrests.
The GX460 has been engineered to achieve class-leading safety performance. High tensile steel has been used throughout to produce a stiff structure that is very effective at absorbing energy in a collision. The GX460 also features ten SRS airbags as standard, including front seat SRS knee airbags and SRS side airbags in the outboard second row seats. The driver’s and front passenger’s seats also feature WIL (Whiplash Injury Lessening) concept and Active Headrest, to help minimize the risk of neck injuries in low speed rear-end collisions.
