Key Features in the 2020 Lexus GX 460
The 2020 Lexus GX 460 has been engineered for luxury and for off-roading. The Lexus GX 460 is a three-row SUV that keeps passengers comfortable and connected, and gives them the capability to roam wherever they choose. Today, let’s review the new key features that lend this luxurious off-roader some serious bragging rights.
The Off-Road Package
Drivers looking for the most capability in the new Lexus GX 460 should certainly check out the all-new available Off-Road Package featuring Multi-Terrain Select. This new package, available on the Luxury grade, offers Lexus’ proven off-road technologies, including:
Panoramic View Monitors with driver and passenger cameras
Fuel tank protector
Crawl Control helps drivers traverse difficult terrain at low speeds. It works by maintaining an optimal slow pace and automatically modulating the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings. It allows the driver to move forward or in reverse by reducing tire slippage and optimizing chassis behavior. All of which allows for a more controlled, safer ride.
Multi-Terrain Select gives drivers the power to optimize their drive by selecting between distinct drive surfaces such as loose rocks, mud and sand, and moguls. It works by automatically adjusting the engine throttle and brakes, which helps improve traction and regulate wheel-spin.
Four-Wheel Active Traction
The Lexus GX 460’s full-time automatic four-wheel drive system distributes power 40:60, front to rear, and changes the ratio as needed to regulate slippage. Plus, it offers a low range for slow speed off-road driving and a variety of supplementary chassis control technologies, including:
Downhill Assist Control (DAC)
Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC)
Active Traction Control (A-TRAC)
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
When you’re in a Lexus, elegance comes standard. So it is no surprise that the interior of the GX 460 received some flourishing luxury touches to infuse the ride with enhanced elegance. Available features include:
Wood and leather-trimmed heated steering wheel, crafted exclusively with hand-selected materials
Semi-aniline leather that is dyed completely through (unlike most leathers that offer surface dyes only)
Gray Sapele wood with aluminum trim available in the Premium and Luxury grades
Interior color options include: Black, Sepia, Ecru, and all-new Rioja Red with black headliner
Exterior color options include: Starfire Pearl, Atomic Silver, Nebula Gray Pearl, Nightfall Mica, Fire Agate Pearl, Black Onyx and Claret Mica
The multimedia system in the GX not only connects drivers to the pertinent driving info they need, but does so in a manner that’s easy to use and customizable. The GX’s multimedia touchscreen home screen has the ability to display three sections simultaneously, which can be customized based off driver preference. Additionally, drivers can choose the available navigation system’s three-dimensional map view for an even more connected experience.
Plus, drivers can drive with confidence thanks to Lexus Enform Safety Connect, which is included with the GX for the first 10 years of ownership. Lexus Enform Safety Connect allows drivers to reach safety response centers 24/7 all year long.
With the Lexus Inform Remote service, which is included for the first year of ownership, drivers can lock and unlock their doors, start the engine and climate control, check the fuel level and more all through their smartphone, smartwatch or devices running Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
And, thanks to the addition of two more USB ports, rear seat passengers can power their mobile devices.
Lexus Safety System+ suite of technologies is now standard on the entire 2020 Lexus vehicle lineup. Lexus Safety System+ includes:
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
Lane Departure Alert
Intelligent High Beams
High-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
