Whatever other reasons had while building the GX 460, mountain climbing must indeed have been a top priority. The huge, monstrous GX 460 drives on a 301-hp 4.6-liter V-8, a six-speed automatic, and an all-wheel-drive system with a locking center differential. These features are all standard and provide the GX its off-road credentials.
Inside, plush seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a power-adjustable steering wheel are standard. Adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking are optional on the top Luxury trim.
The GX boasts of the same, fortified toughness characteristic of the Land Cruisers meant to level all sorts of desert and mountain terrain that prove a challenge to lesser-abled machinery. The 4.6-liter V-8 seldom hits a 7.0-second 0 to 60 mph time. The engine goes down pretty well with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Such abilities will do little harm to full-time four-wheel driving the 4WD has an electronically locking Torsen center differential and a low-range position (probably one many GX buyers may never use or need). Because of all this muscle, it is able to tow 6,500 pounds.
The GX460’s interior is bespoke with fittings that show off sophistication in a manner hitherto unseen. There is, however, an odd looking element brought about by silver-painted hard plastic and an simplistic blend of analog and digital infotainment and climate controls on the console and center stack.
Regardless of the angle from which you view this car, it is an admirable work in the class of heavy, weighty cars.
