Lexus SUV’s may have to look over their shoulder at the competition.

The Lexus brand well known for luxury sedans and SUV’s gets a lot of competition these days.

As Bumper2Bumpertv tells us the company may want to rethink what technology it offers as standard equipment in light of the challenges.

Lexus SUV’s may have to look over their shoulder at the competition.

THIS IS A LUXURY SUV THAT IS HAVING TO WORK HARDER THESE DAYS TO KEEP ITS PLACE NEAR THE TOP OF THE HEAP IN THE SEGMENT.

THE LEXUS GX460 HOWEVER IS STILL A VERY CAPABLE STANDARD SIZE UNIT THAT IS EQUALLY COMFORTABLE ON PAVEMENT OR OFF ROAD.

WHAT DID WE LIKE ABOUT IT?

LET’S START WITH POWER DEPLOYABLE RUNNING BOARDS WHICH MAKE ACCESS A LOT EASIER.

THAT OF COURSE LEADS TO THE INTERIOR WHERE A MAHOGANY STEERING WHEEL AND FULL LEATHER SEAT COVERS PROVIDE THE TACTICLE SENSATIONS OF LUXURY.

AFTER ALL THIS IS A LEXUS AND ANYTHING LESS WOULD BE A DISAPPOINTMENT EVEN WITH THREE DIFFERENT TRIM LEVELS..

WE WILL GIVE LEXUS CREDIT FOR SOME ADEQUATE SPACE IN THE THIRD ROW.

WHILE NOT QUITE COMFY FOR A SIX-FOOTER, THE AVERAGE SIZE PERSON SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET IN OR OUT AND BE RELATIVELY COMFORTABLE.

OF COURSE, THAT ROW FOLDS FLAT AND BECOMES PART OF A 64 CUBIC FEET CARGO SPACE.

CONSIDERING THIS HAS A FOOTPRINT OF 192 INCHES THE GX460 IS SURPRISINGLY NIMBLE WITH THIS MUCH CAPACITY.

WE ALSO LIKED THE AIR SUSPENSION SYSTEM WHICH INTEGRATES SEAMLESSLY WITH THE FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE SYSTEM TO PROVIDE THE CLOUD LIKE RIDE ON MOST TERRAIN.

A TORSEN LIMITED SLIP DIFFERNTIAL GETS THE MOST FROM THE SET UP.

CRAWL CONTROL AND HILL START ASSIST PROVIDE A DRIVER WITH THE SYSTEMS TO MAINTAIN CONTROL IN SOME OF THE TOUGHEST ROAD CONDITIONS.

THE DRIVE TRAIN IS A VERY FAMILIAR ARRANGEMENT FROM LEXUS.

THE 4.6 LITER V8 ENGINE OFFERS 301 HORSEPOWER AND 329 POUND FEET OF TORQUE.

CONSIDERING ITS SIZE AND WEIGHT FUEL ECONOMY WHILE NOT GREAT ISN’T DISAPPOINTING.

THE TRANSMISSION IS A RELIABLE 6 SPEED AUTOMATIC WHICH HAS PROVEN ITSELF OVER THE YEARS.

THE INFOTAINMENT CENTER IN THE TEST CAR INCLUDED THE MARK LEVINSON AUDIO SYSTEM, AND BLUETOOTH TECHNOLOGY FOR STREAMING SOURCES.

BUT ANDROID AUTO AND APPLE CAR PLAY CONNECTIVITIY WERE MISSING.

IN TERMS OF TECHNOLOGY THE LEXUS ENFORM SAFETY CONNECT COMES WITH A TEN-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION.

BUT WE WERE CONCERNED THAT SOME DRIVER ASSIST FEATURES LIKE LANE DEPARTURE AND DRIVER ATTENTION MONITOR ARE OPTIONS INSTEAD OF STANDARD EQUIPMENT.WHILE LEXUS IS OFFERING THIS AS STANDARD EQUIPMENT IN SOME SEDANS THE BRANDS BODY ON FRAME SUV’S ARE SOMEWHAT BEHIND THEIR COMPETITORS IN THEIR ADOPTION.

THIS IS GREG MORRISON.
