The 2020 Lexus GX 460 is old school Lexus cool. The luxury SUV hasn’t changed much over the years at its core but this more than capable, luxury SUV gets the job done with style.
The Highlights were the bold looks , comfortable seats, off road capabilities and the engine. The ride is extremely nice as well and with this Luxury SUV you ride in comfort and style whether going to the Symphony or off roading on a mountain trail. The quality is amazing and the GX 460 totally delivers on comfort, luxury, and exceptional quality.
The ride is really nice. The GX 460 offers an especially great experience for passengers. As far as driving is concerned, you don’t feel the road as much because the ride is so comfortable which translates to less responsiveness and handling in turns. It’s a great ride and definitely has the off roading capabilities but I don’t know many people that would take a 100K vehicle off road, especially as nice as the body and paint are on this vessel.
The X 460’s commanding appearance dominates with style and grace. This Lexus utility vehicle exterior design is sharp and an amazing blend of beauty and strength. The updated grill design and headlights were a nice addition to the 2020 model year. Overall, it’s a nice blend of strength and beauty.
2020 Lexus GX 460 has one of the best cabin and interiors in the segment. In non-base trims, most interior surfaces feature authentic wood or soft leather trim.
Interior accommodations upfront are really nice and in line with what you expect from Lexus. The second row works for adults and is made more comfortable with the captain’s chairs.The third row is best for kids. The base and Premium versions have NuLuxe simulated-leather upholstery. Instruments are clear and easily legible, but there are lots of buttons. It’s all finished impeccably.
Engine / Powertrain
The X 460 comes with a 4.6 liter V-8, 301 horsepower. A 6-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels for full time 4WD. Towing capacity is 6,500 lbs. Full time 4 wheel drive with Active traction control distributes engine power between the front and rear axles, optimizing traction in a wide variety of conditions. This keeps you securely on the road by using sensors to detect the onset of wheel slippage, automatically applying the brake to the slipping wheel, and shifting power to the wheels with the most traction. You can expect around 16 MPG overall in gas mileage as a result.
The Navigation system has one of the largest split screens in its class. The 12.3-inch high-resolution multimedia display provides immediate, simultaneous access to audio or climate controls and various systems, including the voice-activated Navigation System.
The Mark Levinson Surround Sound Audio System was engineered by a company world-renowned by audiophiles, the available 330-watt audio system was tuned for more than 4,000 hours to optimize the acoustics of the vehicle. As a result, it features 17 speakers and 7.1-channel architecture, and enough clarity for listeners to identify the spatial position of each instrument in play.
Dual Screen Rear Seat Entertainment systems enables two video sources to be viewed at the same time on LCD screens behind the front headrests. For passenger convenience, a wireless remote, wireless headphones and an AC power outlet are also included. This is sure to keep the kids or other passengers from fighting over what to watch on long road trips.
The Panoramic View Monitor has high resolution cameras that enable you to see the vehicle from many angles. The Bird’s eye view has a wow factor and you can see if you are between the lines while parked among other things.
The Lexus comes with all the safety features Lexus customers are used to having like a Pre-Collision Detection System , Lane Departure Alert and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. You basically get a gentle brake assist and/or steering wheel vibration along with sounds if the system detects you are about to collide with a person or vehicle or depart from your lane. You can turn it off or adjust sensitivity which helps you personalize the feature.
The Lexus X 460 is a mixture of class, strength and a great old school SUV. This is a high end and off road capable SUV.
