There is something to be said about a SUV with good size, a powerful 301 horsepower engine, a great suspension system, and luxury captain seats. That describes the 2020 Lexus GX460 and it is luxury all the way. Starting at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $64,265 with options listing up to $70,985.
The GX460 has a 4.6L-V8 engine and averages 16-mpg overall. The sequential transmission has six-speeds and the GX has full time four-wheel drive. This is a heavy-duty SUV with transmission and fuel tank protectors for rugged terrain. Built for hard work with power and comfort it is hard to fathom taking such a luxury vehicle too far off the beaten path.
Made in Tahara, Aichi, Japan it has the meticulous quality of the Lexus craftsmanship and comes with a powertrain warranty of 6-years/70,000-miles.
The “Nightfall Mica” paint makes this sizeable SUV a powerful package in both performance and appearance. The best feature of this GX460 is the velvet smooth ride coming from a kinetic suspension system (KDSS). In addition, adaptive variable suspension and auto-leveling rear air suspension adds to the smooth ride.
The interior has semi-aniline heated and ventilated seats. Heated second row outboard captain seats, and power-fold third row seats.
The rear seats have an optional dual screen entertainment system.
The 2020 GX460 contains all of the latest Lexus safety systems, that include pre-collision, pedestrian detection, high speed dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert, and intelligent high beams with wash featured LED headlamps and foglamps.
Passengers have mountain views thru the power moonroof with privacy glass. A power trunk lift gate has an easy entry glass panel for quick access.
This vehicle is top of the line in luxury, performance, and sport’s utility for outdoor recreation, ski trips, and camping.
Ten airbags provide passenger safety, it’s loaded with navigation and safety features, including a 9-speaker premium sound system with 4 UBS ports.
Lexus says, “Experience Amazing” and they mean it.
