Lexus GX460 has been launched in the UAE
The new Lexus GX460, showcased at December’s Dubai Motor Show, has been launched in the Middle East.
The GX460, based on the fourth generation Toyota Land Cruiser Prado , combines the inherent strengths of the off-roader with luxury and prestige of a Lexus. The SUV will fill the gap between the high-end LX570 and the crossover RX350 .
The GX460 shares most of its underpinnings with the Toyota Prado including the 292bhp, 4.6-litre V8 engine, the six-speed automatic transmission with 4WD and all the off-road oriented techno wizardry.
However, it sets itself apart from the Prado thanks to a mildly revised exterior and plush interior, which are differently laid out than the Prado. Premium plastics, wood trim, chrome and leather abound giving the cabin an upmarket feel.
The Lexus comes in a choice of three dual combination interior colours. The third row seats feature a power flush-with-floor function, which automatically folds and stows the seats flush with the floor at the touch of a button. The GX460 also comes loaded with a Mark Levinson 17-speaker system and headrest-mounted displays in the second row as part of the Rear Seat Entertainment system in the top end model.
The new GX460 is available in three models; Premium, Premium Plus and Luxury, priced at 230,000AED, 260,000AED and 275,000AED respectively. For more information, visit http://gx460.lexus.ae.
