Luxetips Automobiles! New 2016 Lexus GX460 SUV: Luxe & Tech Savvy
Make today a fabulous one!
Last week I had the pleasure of test driving the all new 2016 Lexus GX460 SUV.
This vehicle is super luxurious, spacious, and tech savvy. It is the perfect vehicle for a luxe family of 5 or more. Loved it!
The Lexus GX460 SUV is a large vehicle but it drives like a dream. I never felt like I was driving a large SUV. The car glides across the roads and the suspension is so good, it rolls over bumps and potholes with ease. The Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System is designed to change with the terrain. This system allows each wheel to move more independently, so the wheel on uneven ground can react while the other wheels are relatively unaffected. Atlanta surface roads can be treacherous on a vehicle and while driving the GX460, I barely noticed them.
The vehicle boast 301 horsepower; 4.6 L V-8 engine; 4 wheel drive and a whopping 6,5000 towing capacity. So for luxe families that love the great outdoors, you can haul all of your outdoor toys with ease.
The new Lexus GX460 is a gorgeous vehicle and gets lots of attention. The grille has a new design and is simply gorgeous. The vehicle also comes with a rear spoiler and running boards. I absolutely adore running boards. It makes it easy for kids and women to hop into a large SUV with ease.
The vehicle also has roof rails for transporting bikes and extra luggage. Awesome!
The interior of the Lexus GX460 is what dreams of made of. When you get into the vehicle, you just want to melt into the premium leather seats.
Of course the vehicle has superb wood grain throughout. More importantly, the vehicle is super spacious. A family of 5-7 can easily fit into the 7 passenger vehicle and have enough personal and leg space.
What I absolutely adored about the Lexus GX460, is that it can go from a 5-7 passenger vehicle with a simple push of one button. The power fold-flat, 50/50-split third-row seats, fold up to accommodate 7 passengers or fold down to accommodate 5 passengers and provide more cargo space in 30 seconds. No more manual labor folding and unfolding seats! Loved it!
Another added plus is every row or passenger has the ability to adjust their climate control. This is especially important when you have a large family and everyone has a different idea of how warm or cool they want to be while traveling. This feature cuts arguments about climate down to a minimum. Yeah!
The Lexus GX460 comes with a host of tech amenities that make driving enjoyable and safe for drivers and passengers.
The luxe kids enjoyed the Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System. The sound is simply incredible! The 17-speaker, 330-watt Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System features GreenEdge™ speaker technology that allows twice the output of conventional speakers. By significantly widening the dispersion of sound, a larger “sweet spot” is created, enveloping every passenger with three-dimensional sound that rivals the finest home-audio systems.
The vehicle is of course equipped with Bluetooth audio technology. My iPhone easily connected to the Bluetooth and I was able to access my phone and my music library with no issues.
The vehicle also has a Navigation System with Voice Activation. I was able to simply state an address or ask for the nearest gas station and the information loaded immediately. The voice activation then gave me clear step by step instructions on how to reach my destination.
Another cool tech feature of the vehicle was the Lexus Enform App Suite. This feature offers access to your favorite mobile applications through your vehicle’s center-console display. After downloading the app on your compatible smartphone, you can search local listings, stream music, listen to live radio nationwide, place restaurant reservations and buy movie tickets—all from the driver’s seat using voice activation. Sweet!
This vehicle was such a joy to test! It was really hard for me and the luxe kids to give it back. When I am ready to upgrade my SUV, it will be my number one choice!
In addition, the price point is excellent! Considering all the luxe features and amenities of the vehicle, the starting price for the Lexus GX 460 is only $55,225.
