2012 Lexus GX 460 Exterior

2012 Lexus GX 460 Overview (See Available Styles)

The seven-seat GX 460 is Lexus' midsize truck-based SUV. The luxury vehicle features a V-8 engine, and it competes against models like the Land Rover LR4 and Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Minor changes for 2012 include new bodyside molding for the base model, storage bin and cupholder lighting and a temperature readout incorporated into the multi-information display.

Outside, the GX 460 has a tall stance, and its body sides are accented by large front and rear fender flares. Its face has an uncanny resemblance to Subaru's Outback wagon, thanks to similar headlights. Exterior features include18-inch wheels and a rear window that can be opened independently of the gate.

Seven-person seating in three rows is standard. The second-row bench seat can slide forward and backward for optimal legroom, and the seat's backrest also reclines. When more cargo room is needed, the standard power-folding third row folds flat with the floor.

The cabin features a symmetrical dashboard design with a large center control panel finished in silver-colored trim. Standard interior features include leather seat trim, heated and ventilated power front seats, and a moonroof. Optional are a navigation system, Mark Levinson stereo, and backseat entertainment system. Under the hood of the GX 460 is a 4.6-liter V-8 that makes 301 horsepower and 329 pounds-feet of torque and teams with a six-speed automatic transmission. The full-time four-wheel-drive system incorporates a low range that's designed for off-road excursions. The GX 460 also has a maximum towing capacity of 6,500 pounds when properly equipped When it comes to safety, the GX 460 has plenty. Ten airbags are standard, including frontal airbags, side-impact airbags for the front and outboard second-row seats, front knee airbags and side curtain airbags for all three rows of seats. Standard safety features include antilock brakes, electronic stability system, and active front head restraints. A Pre-Collision System, which can tighten the front seat belts and ready the brakes for stronger stopping performance, is optional.
