What You Will Like

The GX 460 is more like a truck than a car-like crossover utility vehicle. It's closely related to the Toyota 4Runner -- so it has body-on-frame construction, an asset for anyone who tows regularly. The GX otherwise stands out for being especially well-equipped with both luxury-car comforts as well as useful off-road aids and safety-tech features. It might also prove more maneuverable and manageable versus a full-size luxury SUV such as a Cadillac Escalade or Lincoln Navigator.

What's New For 2016

The Lexus GX is unchanged for 2016.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 6 Years / 70,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / Unlimited Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


Finding takers for the GX 460 isn’t so easy anymore. Even with lower gas prices, Americans have been leaning away from rugged off-road-ready SUVs and toward crossovers with better fuel economy. Now entering the seventh year of its second generation, the GX hasn’t undergone many changes since 2010.

The truck-based Lexus GX offers a luxurious cabin for family journeys, along with full-fledged four-wheel-drive capabilities.

Slotted below the full-size LX 570, the GX 460 is closely related to the Toyota 4Runner. Rather than the 4Runner’s V6 engine, though, the Lexus GX 460 gets a more powerful V8. Overall, the GX delivers on Lexus’s long-lived promise of plush refinement, modern technology, and elegant design. None of those traits are typical of truck-based SUVs.

In addition to tough body-on-frame construction, the GX 460 gets low-range gearing in its four-wheel-drive system. (No two-wheel-drive version is offered.) Electronic assists are ready to help maintain control under a variety of conditions, in sundry terrains.

The four-wheel drive system includes a Torsen center differential, distributing 60 percent of engine power to rear wheels in normal driving. A center differential lock helps provide traction in sand, mud, or snow.

Comfortable inside and pleasurable on the road, the GX 460 promises off-road prowess that few real-world buyers actually need, but many would like to have, just in case. Another selling point is strong towing ability.

Anyone who has driven a true separate-body, truck-based SUV is likely to feel right at home, if more comfortably cocooned, in a cabin that might be dubbed delicate. Front seats are comfortable and supportive, and the driver should find a satisfying position without trouble.

Beneath the tall hood, a 4.6-liter V8 produces 301 horsepower, mating with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Not everything is perfect, led by a flaw that’s no surprise: poor fuel economy. Specifically, the GX 460 is EPA-rated at 15/20 mpg City/Highway.

We thought the steering felt too light and the brake pedal felt soft.

In terms of cargo-carrying convenience, the GX 460 has no rise-up liftgate. Instead, there’s a side-opening hatch, which can be helpful for loading. Trouble is, it’s hinged at the right, which can interfere with loading and unloading from the curb side.

An available navigation system comes with Enform services, including Destination Assist. For 2016, new Enform Remote allows owners to view and control vehicle details via a smartphone app.


The Lexus GX 460 ($50,140) comes with leatherette upholstery, nine-speaker audio, HD radio with real-time weather and traffic, 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth phone/music, 18-inch alloy wheels, rearview camera, LED headlights, sunroof.

Premium ($54,585) adds three-zone automatic climate control, navigation, heated rear seats, heated and ventilated front seats, LED foglamps, Intuitive Park Assist, mahogany wood trim.

Luxury ($61,515) adds semi-aniline leather upholstery, adaptive variable suspension, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, rear air suspension with auto leveling, heated steering wheel, power folding third-row seats.

Each GX 460 is equipped with ten airbags. Combining two safety-tech packages can bring a Pre-Collision System, dynamic cruise control, Driver Attention Monitor, Lane Departure Alert, intelligent high-beams, and Wide-View Side and Front Monitor.


Though gently rounded, the Lexus GX exhibits classic-SUV proportions, melded with a considerable amount of chrome. Up front is a bold, if curious, rendition of Lexus’s spindle grille, flanked by big headlights and assertive-looking bumper air dams. Fenders that look carved-out and a tall beltline help yield a trucklike appearance.

Designers took the organic, gentle, and aerodynamic styling of the brand’s L-Finesse designs, augmented by a more solid and sculpted, if simple, look. From behind, it’s wider and more conservative, highlighted by tall taillights. In profile, the Lexus GX is emphatically truck-derived.


Inside, both the layout and look are upright and, again, trucklike. Materials and trim, on the other hand, stress high quality. Lexus managed to mix the chunky trim and bulky door handles of a truck with luxurious, soft materials. Instrument-panel design is also quite upright, with a horizontal-bar theme.

Compared to newer utility vehicles, you sit quite high relative to the beltline, which translates to great outward visibility. Well-padded, supportive seats combine with plenty of legroom and headroom, creating a truly pleasant environment.

Controls actually feel less cluttered than in Lexus passenger cars. We applaud the steering-wheel controls; readily legible gauge layout; and carefully laid-out center stack.

The second row is quite roomy. Not only is it split, but the seat slides forward and backwards to adjust legroom and ease entry into the third row. That third row is impractical and small, as well as hard to reach. Its standard power-folding mechanism steals space, too, preventing the cargo area from being low and flat. Adults and teens will probably suffer crunched knees and tight headroom.

Thick rear pillars make blind spots substantial. Fortunately, a rearview camera is standard, and a Wide-View Side and Front Monitor is available.

Driving Impressions

Off-road capability impedes the on-road dynamic character of the GX. Thus, this SUV isn’t as nimble on the highway as might be expected. Some drivers will be satisfied with the trade-off for its considerable off-road talents.

Ride quality is good, with or without adaptive suspension. Entry-level models, however, don’t seem to cope as well with choppy roads.

A GX feels surprisingly comfortable on twisty roads at a moderate pace. Steering lacks road feel, responds slowly, and suffers artificial off-center weighting. Thus, you can’t forget that the GX is a more traditional SUV than nimble crossovers. Spongy brake-pedal feel is especially unappealing.

Accelerating to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds is relatively sluggish for a V8. The 6-speed automatic transmission shifts promptly and smoothly, yielding no flat spots in sending power to all four wheels.

Five-setting Crawl Control manages momentum over harshest terrain, at speeds between 1.0 and 3.7 mph. A standard Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System helps keep the GX 460 level when cornering, as well as and in tricky off-road situations. At times when on-road, however, the system creates a jittery sensation.


If five-passenger seating will suffice, a GX is loaded with luxury amenities and classy interior trim. Still, active-safety features require an upgrade or an option group. Trucklike on the outside, it’s eminently refined and well-made inside.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
