Luxury SUVs simply don’t get much better than the Lexus GX 460 SUV. Combining the comfort of a road vehicle with the power of an off-roader, Lexus has truly built a SUV for the modern age, for families and day-trippers alike.

One of the most surprising features of the Lexus GX 460 SUV is its off-roading capabilities. The chrome trim and low running boards can make a casual observer think this is mostly a city vehicle. And while the GX 460 runs great in city and highway, its 4.6 Liter V-8 makes it a good choice for even the roughest terrains. It shifts speeds quickly with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
One of the most interesting features, however, is Lexus’ new Crawl Control, which allows for slow, steady movements on difficult terrains. Crawl Control can be implemented in five increments between 1 and 3.7 mph, allowing driver’s to have total control over momentum while they go across rocks, mud, or other off-road terrains.
Regardless of whether one prefers asphalt or dirt, passengers in the Lexus GX 460 SUV will be riding in total comfort. High seating positions allow for great visibility out of the windows; headroom and legroom are also ample in both the front and second row. The third row adds extra room for children to enjoy road trips with the rest of the family.
Lexus has also been sure to load the SUV with top-of-the-line technological features. From the 330-watt Mark Levinson surround sound system to the Intuitive Park Assist to the proprietary Enform infotainment system, Lexus has built an SUV that handles the exterior difficulties as well as it supports interior comfort.
Lastly, no driver should overlook the interior of the Lexus GX 460. The company has called this build “tough premium,” referring to features like the large door handles which are juxtaposed against the comfort soft materials surrounding it. Indeed, the unique “spindle” grill coupled with the bumper’s air dams make the SUV look rather intimidating, especially off-road.
Regardless, no driver or onlook will mistake the SUV for anything but a Lexus. It simply has that aesthetic appeal and overall streamlined look that the company is known for. With the GX 460, they’ve simply added features that add a look of ruggedness.
