Luxetips Automobiles! 2017 Lexus GX460: Family Luxe
Know your power. Know your worth!
As you Divas know, I love luxe cars and this past week I had the opportunity to test drive the new 2017 Lexus GX460 luxury SUV for a week.
The new Lexus GX460 has innovate performance, a luxurious interior, amazing sound system and the best technology.
The 2017 GX 460 has a spacious and luxurious interior that easily accommodates up to seven passengers. The interior is decked out in all premium leather and the seats are comfortable and luxurious. In addition, there is ample leg room. I have four kids that are pre-teens and teens and they are big kids. They all had enough room to stretch out their legs and have enough arm room. I didn’t hear the dreaded words: “stop touching me!” LOL!
The third row has fold-flat 50/50 split seats. You can customize how you load and store cargo with these seats. If you need more room, simply fold the third row and you have enough room to haul large big box items, camping gear and sports equipment.
Another cool feature is that each passenger, even in the third row, has the ability to control their climate. This is super important because with kids, one may be hot and other cold and a battle to control the climate can escalate pretty quickly. With the Lexus GX 460, the available three-zone automatic climate control with interior air filter, smog sensor and automatic recirculation mode helps ensure the comfort of you and the rest of your passengers in any type of weather.
Of course the sound system was important and the Lexus Premium Audio system offers an immersive surround-sound experience courtesy of optimized speaker placement throughout the cabin. My family loved, loved loved the sound system. Everyone enjoyed a clear, crisp sound no matter where they sat throughout the vehicle. Also with bluetooth technology which comes standard in the Lexus 460 GX, we could connect our smartphone devices to the vehicle and make and receive phone calls while also accessing and controlling our compatible device’s entire music library and even streaming audio from websites.
With Lexus Enform System, you can get turn by turn directions via the navigation system and get access to your mobile device’s apps through the Lexus Enform App suite. This feature offers access to your favorite mobile applications through your vehicle’s center-console display. You can search local listings, stream music, listen to live radio nationwide, place restaurant reservations and buy movie tickets—all from the center-console display. And, with advanced voice recognition, accessing and controlling the App Suite’s features is easier than ever. Fab!
The Lexus GX460 is a powerful vehicle. One of the innovative and cool performance features is the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System. This system is designed to change with the terrain. By automatically fixing the front and rear stabilizer bars in place when on-road, it helps to minimize body lean while cornering. Off-road, it allows each wheel to move more independently, so a wheel on uneven ground can react while the other wheels are relatively unaffected.
This feature allows for the smoothest ride ever. The vehicle glides over bumps and any other defections in the road. It was a joy to drive!
In addition the vehicle has 301 horsepower, 4 wheel drive, has a V-8 4.6 engine and can town 6500 pounds. So you can tow a boat or other camping or storage equipment with ease.
The new 2017 Lexus GX 460 is a great luxury vehicle for a large family! It is great for road trips and simply driving around your city! So luxe!
