5 reasons to buy the 2022 Lexus GX 460

1. Eye-catching special edition 

The Lexus GX 460 is big in features and size, and the Black Line Special Edition won’t fail to turn heads. New for 2022, the stylish special edition has gloss black 18-inch alloy wheels, a blackout chrome grille, black roof rails, unique lower front and rear fascias, and Garnet Red taillights. The Starfire Pearl, Black Onyx, or exclusive Nori Green Pearl paint colors are striking, and inside, a black headliner, and Matte Black Ash wood steering wheel trim create a strong impression.  

2. Connected technologies 

The 2022 Lexus GX 460 has technologies that will keep everyone entertained. New for 2022 is a redesigned center console stack topped by a 10.3-inch color touchscreen display with wired Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, and Bluetooth® connectivity. A navigation system will make driving to your destination easy, and the Lexus Enform suite of connected services includes Amazon Alexa integration and available onboard Wi-Fi

— plus it allows remote starting of the engine.

3. Big off-road ability 

Whether you’re heading to the campsite or the gymkhana, the GX 460 is a useful companion to get to those places off the beaten track. All GX trims have standard 4WD with a low-range transfer case and a limited-slip center differential that sends power between the axles to optimize traction for your added peace of mind. Select the available Off-Road package to be even more reassured. The five-speed mode crawl control system automatically maintains a slower pace over more rugged terrain.  

4. An unruffled drive 

Whoever you take on an interstate road trip with you, the 2022 GX 460 will envelop you and your traveling companions in luxury and comfort. The 301-hp 4.6L V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission are smooth, and the cabin is quiet, adding to the relaxing vibes. Out of the city, opt for the Luxury trim’s adaptive suspension with auto rear-leveling to cushion the biggest of bumps. For enhanced serenity, choose the available captain’s chairs that replace the second-row seats. 

5. Pulls its weight  

Should you find you’ve filled all seven seats of the 2022 Lexus GX 460, load up a trailer and you’re ready to go. The GX 460’s engine has 329 lb-ft of torque, which is enough to help it tow an estimated 6,500 lbs, when properly equipped.

The available tow hitch receiver, tow ball mount, and tow trailer ball make hauling a cinch. The standard Trailer Sway Control system detects unwanted and extreme trailer movements, giving you extra confidence when you’re hauling extra loads.
