The GX is a full-size luxury SUV that was first brought to light for the North American and Eurasian markets in 2002 by Lexus, Toyota’s luxury division. The GX is based on the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser Prado platform, which naturally credits it as a proper off-road machine. However, the idea for the GX was to be truly different. It had to be a savage beast off-road, whilst offering the highest levels of Japanese luxury and automotive craftsmanship. The second-generation GX received a plethora of technical as well as mechanical changes since its debut in 2009, but exterior upgrades were fairly subtle until 2013. This fine 2015 Lexus GX 460 currently resides in Maryland and has just 66,000 miles on the odometer.
The GX received a significant cosmetic makeover in 2013, which this 2015 Lexus GX 460 comes with as a result. A facelift showcasing Lexus’ spindle grille design, revised LED headlamps and LED daytime running lights combine to create a dramatic face. The rear lights were tweaked too. This example is in Pearl White, with a set of silver 18” Lexus alloys wrapped in 255/60 tires. A full-size spare wheel is included as well. The exterior mirrors are heated as well, which is useful in colder climates. The interior is luxurious as can be expected. It’s got charcoal leather seats, fine wood surfaces and leather-trimmed panels as well. Three-zone climate control, navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and powered, heated, and cooled front seats are present, whilst the second-row seats are heated too. You can adjust the stiffness of the dampers, raise the ride height, and engage low range via switches in the center console. There is also a power tilt and slide sunroof to enjoy sunny days.
Toyota’s UR-FE V8 powers this 2015 Lexus GX 460. This 281ci (4.6L) gasoline V8 puts out 301 hp at 5,500rpm and 329 lb ft at 3,500rpm. Drive goes to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic mode for manual control. The dampers can be adjusted for comfort or sport mode, the ride height can be raised for additional ground clearance too.
