Hearing that the new 2018 Lexus GX 460 made us wonder what they will change on him because his current version is still quite young. The current version of GX was released in 2016, which means that this new generation will be released in less than 2 years. This means that something will certainly be changed, at least refreshed. We can not wait to see it and because of that, we have created a little review on what we can expect from the new Lexus GX 460 2018 as one of the most popular SUVs to come.
As for the exterior, the Lexus GX 460 2018 will probably remain faithful to the design of the current model. This means that its large grid and its recognizable pin will occupy the front fairing. At the rear, the taillights are set high and the whole design is cleaner and more sculpted. All lights should be equipped with LED technology.
Inside, the 2018 Lexus GX 460 will be spacious and offer plenty of room for the head and legs. The cabin is able to accommodate up to seven passengers in three rows of seats. However, the third row is more convenient for children. The seats are very comfortable, comfortable and upholstered in synthetic leather. In addition, the top trim levels will get some nice wood details that will give it a warmer look. The dashboard will have the same 8-inch touch screen.
As for the equipment, it offers many technological features. It comes standard with dual zone temperature control, satellite radio, sound system, a moonroof, a backup camera and so on. In addition, as for safety, it will be equipped with a blind spot monitor, a navigation system, a rear traffic alert, etc. In addition, some optional features will be: audio system with 17 speakers, heated and ventilated seats, leather upholstery, etc.
At present, we only know one engine unit for the new Lexus GX 460 2018. This will be a 4.6-liter V8. This engine can develop 300 horsepower and a torque of 330 lb / ft in maximum quantity. The 6-speed automatic transmission system will be paired with this engine and we expect it to reduce fuel consumption a bit. Official estimates are not yet ready, but some unofficial say it could be 15/20 mpg city / highway. By using this type of automatic transmission system and this type of engine, the new GX 460 can reach 0 to 100 km / h in just 7.5 seconds, which is a small but significant improvement.
The 2018 Lexus GX 460 should be available by the end of 2017. Speaking of price, the base model is expected to start at around $ 53,000.
