Redesigned Lexus GX 460 ready to be released in 2014
|   Monday, August 26, 2013
Lexus has just confirmed that the redesigned GX 460 will be available in 2014. We have been thinking that this might be a reaction of Lexus after the patent images were made public. Either way, we have been impressed by the new features which were classified as "as a new interpretation" by the company when referring to the new and improved version of the SUV.

Speed lovers should be glad as the new Lexus GX 460 will be equipped with a 4.6 liter V8 engine and will feature standard full time four wheel drive.
Even more, it will also include a surprising low range meant especially for off road.

The powertrain seems to be the same as in the previous model, 301 hp at 5,500 rpm, with almost the same six speed automatic gearbox. The Kinetic Dynamic Suspension system will also be included in order to boost the control of both on road and off road. An innovation for the 2014 model would be the trailer sway control.

GX was definitely made to impress as its hourglass shape make it look rather exclusive. The main changes that were made include the signature grille of the Lexus in the front end and a fresh new bumper with lower placed headlights. The new angular grille looks even more intrusive with a gaping air intake opening. The horizontal reflectors are now fitted even better and the back bumper has been reshaped to some extend.

Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System is a standard option that can decrease the body lean angle up to 50 % in order to boost the on road handling reaction and off highway efficiency. It is an ultimate feature and it will also be included on the 2014 Lexus model.

The interior of the new Lexus GX 460 looks comfortable, yet, luxurious and roomy. The upcoming model has been complemented with LED headlamps and a set of daytime running lights. In order to increase the comfy feeling, the cabin was added a fresh linear espresso wood, or, upon choice, abyss black trim. The mahogany wood trim is featured on the Premium and Luxury versions.

In terms of technology accessories, the new vehicle has stylish touch screen display audio adds on an incredible eight inch screen, Bluetooth connectivity, HD Radio, even an automatic option of phone book transfer. All the car information are available on a display, this way the driver can stay connected to what exactly is going one under the front hood.

Lexus continues to surprise! It seems that the Premium package for the Lexus GX 460 will have exactly the same price as the 2013 model. Also, further safety features were included; the new model will include 10 airbags and the Luxury model will include an advanced pre collision system with a driver monitor.
It seems that the Lexus GX 460 will compete with Land Cruiser Prado as they both represent important types of vehicles in the range.
