2010 Lexus GX 460

The Old Guard in New

by Ms. Cocoa Efficient

In this of downsizing, belt-tightening and the ever pursuit of greener transportation, the GX 460 seems a bit of a relic; the last of the old fuel-thirsty SUVs that so want to see fade into But reality is a cruel mistress, and for all the of a hybrid RX or small BMW X3 the truth is can seat seven passengers, tow a trailer or forcibly banish simply by appearing in their view mirrors. No, there are sometimes in life when you a big, V8-powered SUV, and the new GX 460 makes an admirable choice.

My first walk around the new GX me, well, to be honest a bit under Looking head on, the design is pure Lexus, clean and But come around to the side and her and collar don#8217;t match. The distance between the tires and the arches is too pronounced, and the side specifically the rear quarter is terribly reminiscent of a hyper Mitsubishi Montero Sport.

another controversial element back, where a swing-out door occupies the spot reserved for a flip-up gate. a bit of love/hate thing, the design a royal pain in the … the vehicle is not on level ground, but a blessing for the too tall (no more one#8217;s head on the flip-up or the not too tall (not having to to reach the pull straps).

Lexus has added a locking to hold the door in place, but its and feels like a flimsy cleaner attachment, and its position the door#8217;s protective rubber allows dirt and mud to coat the place a dainty little like myself must to operate the lock. Silly.

from the exterior can be found where the GX 460 lavishes its occupants all manner of technical wizardry, leather and really comfy Despite a multitude of switch the GX#8217;s many controls are user friendly and intuitive, and the upright seating gives a view of the road ahead.

Load up all the options and you get a GX complete voice-activated hard-drive navigation, a 17-speaker Mark Levinson system, Dynamic Radar Control, Intelligent High and a rear seat mini-movie complete with two LCD view One of the most useful options is the new Front and Side Monitor, enhances visibility in tight and banishes previously pesky spots.

If there is a weak in the GX#8217;s innards it can be found in the seat. Not only is it horribly in useable leg room, in order to a level surface when Lexus had to raise the floor four inches above the bumper, adding a rather rise to the rear deck. outside the GX, the additional few inches an added dose of lifting and to get a day#8217;s worth of Neiman-Marcus securely stowed.

Those who know me well I like my V8 engines like I my men: strong, smooth and always silent. The new GX 460 meets requirement and then some.

with a discerning eye (I, by the way, two) will have no noticed a slight numerical in the GX#8217;s name badge. year#8217;s GX 470 is this years GX thanks to a new 4.6-liter V8 engine although slightly smaller in produces 38 more bucking and a 13-percent improvement in fuel For those who actually venture Lexus has armed the GX with a four-wheel-drive system, available Control and Downhill Assist.

Those last two items are to the novice in you doesn#8217;t get in over his and go careening down Mt. Everest a Scottish expedition gone wrong. When not bounding the Band Lands, the GX 460#8242;s Kinetic Dynamic Suspension out road imperfection and adeptly the vehicle#8217;s massive bulk as if little more than a sedan.

Overall, the new GX 460 serves a purpose and it well. If the high cost of isn#8217;t a detractor, and the styling strike you as it does me, then Lexus could very be in your garage by week#8217;s The GX 460 starts around $52,000 and all the bells and whistles tops out over $71,000.
