The 2018 GX 460’s powerful 4.6L V8 engine offers 301 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque, and its 6-speed automatic transmission provides a smoother acceleration experience and faster shifting response. It can handle hilly landscapes and highway driving with ease. And 6,500 pounds of towing capacity will ensure your camper or boat gets to its destination.

The LEXUS GX 460 will get you an estimated 15 city/18 highway MPG1 in fuel economy. It’s a certified ultra-low emission vehicle, so you can rest easy knowing that you’re driving cleaner and greener in this SUV.


The GX 460 earns points for comfort with its 10-way power-adjustable driver’s and front passenger’s seats, so you can relax and stay limber during long car rides and road trips. One of those adjustments offers lumbar support, so ride-induced stiff lower backs will be a thing of the past.

This vehicle is built for utility, with 64.7 ft3 of cargo space. The third-row seats fold down perfectly flat and have a 50/50-split seatback, so you can customize the passenger-cargo balance to fit your family’s needs. The second-row seats slide and recline forward with a 40/20/40-split seatback, for even more options. Bulky luggage, long skis, groceries—all will fit comfortably.


There are plenty of standard features in the 2018 GX 460 to keep you safe as you’re hauling up to 6,500 pounds. Four-wheel drive with active traction control will help keep you on the road by using sensors on all four wheels to detect slippage, apply brakes to the slipping wheel, and shift power to the wheels with higher traction.

Brake assist and an anti-lock braking system will give you more control—and backup—when you need to make an emergency stop. LED headlamps let you see what’s coming farther up the road, and sooner. Driving in wet, icy, or nighttime conditions is a much more secure experience with all these standard features.


We hope this review helped you learn more about the 2018 Lexus GX 460—but we know reading about a vehicle’s features just isn’t the same as experiencing them in person.
