Considered to be a best-seller and top of the line, the 2018 Lexus GX 460 is a medium sized hybrid that seamlessly integrates superior engineering and performance with a noteworthy off-roading potential. As with all vehicles in the Lexus family, the drive and feel are perfect. Managing to retain the traditional design, yet give a modern look and appeal, the 2018 Lexus GX 460 is expected to be bigger, more luxurious and sports key features distinguishing it from its earlier avatars.
2018 Lexus GX 460 – Exterior Design:
This vehicle is expected to be lighter- thanks to the use of lightweight materials in its chassis. The overall exterior of the car will be similar to earlier models, with minor changes to make the vehicle that bit more modern. Modifications in the design of the headlight, matching colors of step-boards and spoilers to that of the car and wheel orientation are likely to be some of the adjustments to enhance the overall look of the 2018 Lexus. It is a robust vehicle with a tall, ‘boxy’ shape that clearly matches its rugged terrain performance.
The cabin of the new Lexus will be luxury all the way. The adjustable seats have superior quality leather upholstery that spells elegance and class. A top-class entertainment system with high definition touchscreen and Mark Levinson surround sound sets the GX apart from other SUVs. Further touches of luxury are brought in with the use of wooden accents on the door panels and the dashboard. The 2018 Lexus is expected to have more space in its comfortable interiors.
2018 Lexus GX 460 – Under the Hood:
The 2018 Lexus GX 460 will have 4.6 Liter V8 engine. An impressive torque of 330 lb-ft coupled with 301 horsepower makes a mean machine in this segment. With a quick dash from 0 to 60 mph in just 7.0 seconds, the acceleration is predominantly also thanks to a specially upgraded 6-speed auto transmission. Expected fuel economy is 15/18 mpg in the city and highway respectively. The 4-wheel drive is impressive and comparable to others in its class.
With latest technological additions, such as the dual zone climate controller, 8-way power adjustable seats, and state-of- the- art entertainment system, the Lexus smoothly combines the traditional, modern and smart in one go. There is absolutely no compromise on safety – every seat has airbags. The Kinetic Dimension Suspension System (KDSS) and ‘Crawl Control’ also ensures even performance on every type of road. Boasting of a body-on-frame construction that guarantees superior off-road performance, the GX 460 is reliable across all weather conditions and surfaces.
2018 Lexus GX 460 – Expected Release Date and Cost:
You can expect to get your hand on the new model by late 2017. The price of the new 2018 Lexus GX 460 is in the range $ 52,500 up to $ 70,000. Not necessarily the cheapest in this segment, the Lexus scores in terms of reliability and long-term value.
The Final Word:
The GX 460 is justifiably worth the anticipation and wait. For those looking for an adaptable luxury SUV with a capable off-road performance, the Lexus GX 460 is a good bet that combines style, fuel efficiency, and performance.
