Since the Lexus GX 460 received redesign as a 2014th model we do not expect to see any major changes for the 2016 Lexus GX 460. Three versions of this model will be again offered to the market and buyers will be able to choose between standard GX, Premium and Luxury trim that will be more expensive but will also offer more.
Prices will remain pretty much at the same level since for 2016th we could be getting only few extra features that were initially offered as an option. Base version of the 2016 Lexus GX 460 will be priced at $49,085 and if you want more equipment the Premium trim will provide more for $53,795 while the top of the line Luxury model comes with even higher price of $60,715.
Price Of 2016 Lexus GX 460
Both interior and exterior have not received many changes after the redesign and as a standard we have LED headlamps and daytime running lights that are combined with a recognizable spindle grille this car maker offers on new models in its lineup. Led technology has been implemented in the tail lights but also for the fog lamps. High stance will give you commanding position on road which makes this vehicle look quite refined and elegant.
There is no doubt that the 2016 Lexus GX 460 is a premium and luxury oriented model. To achieve this Lexus brings modern and well equipped cabin and as a standard we are getting features like eight inch screen, vehicle information display, weather and traffic data, backup monitor, Bluetooth connectivity and much more. High quality leather and wood accents are also available on Premium and Luxury trims while tech like Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert come as option or standard on higher trims. For those that want even more Lexus can equip their LUV with adaptable air suspension, 18 inch wheels, navigation, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, parking assist, three zone climate control, etc.
Only one engine is available under the hood of the Lexus GX 460 and there are still not options to change the 4.6 liter V8 unit. This powerplant delivers healthy 301 hp at 5,500 rpm and 329 lb-ft of torque at 3,500 rpm that are transferred through intelligent Electronically Controlled Transmission with six speeds. As a result this vehicle will be able to return good performances and 15/20 mpg city/highway. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is done in 7.8 seconds while it will be able to tow 6500 lbs.
2016 Lexus GX 460 Review
One of the reasons why large luxury vehicles like this one are popular is the fact that they offer great level of safety. First, they are big but also come equipped with large number of safety features. Specifically the 2016 Lexus GX 460 offers 10 airbags and Advanced Pre Collision system with Driver Monitor. To help out in tricky situations we have full time all-wheel drive with torque sensing limited slip center differential from TORSEN. In most cases it will deliver 40/60 front/rear distribution but when it is needed it can adjust it from 30/70 to 50/50 depending which axle has more traction.
We know that the 2016 Lexus GX 460 will not come with any significant changes and as a result we can assume that it will be officially presented during the summer of 2015th while it will be available for sale during the fall of the same year. There is still time for changes but reports support these claims.
