Lexus GX460


Lexus has updated its GX460 SUV for 2014, and aside from a minor shuffling of standard and optional features—and the addition of a new Luxury trim level—the biggest change hits the GX’s face. It now incorporates Lexus’s signature spindle grille, a styling element whose proliferation to each of the brand’s models is finally complete. (Discounting, of course, the lame-duck IS C convertible that’s waiting around for its new-look IS coupe replacement, the RC.) The GX, which is badged as the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado in other markets, now bears at least a passing resemblance to Lexus’s other two SUVs, the RX and the LX.

Luxury Four-Wheelin’

The GX is the smaller of Lexus’s two proper four-wheel-drive SUVs, and like big-brother LX570, it remains one of the few luxury rigs out there with a low-range transfer case and rugged off-roading hardware. As for carry over mechanicals, the full-time four-wheel-drive system still utilizes a lockable, torque-sensing Torsen limited-slip center differential, and paired with the GX’s prodigious ground clearance makes for a trail-friendly conveyance. The 301-hp, 4.6-liter V-8, six-speed automatic transmission, and meager fuel economy (15 mpg in the city and 20 on the highway) also return for 2014. We suspect the latest GX will drive much like its pre-refresh self, which we most recently tested against an Acura MDX, an Audi Q7, a BMW X5, and a Land Rover LR4 in a comparison test.
