Overview Of The Lexus Gx Series

Lexus GX meaning Grand Crossover is an SUV built on the platform of Toyota Land Cruiser Prado with a four-wheel-drive layout and powered by Toyota’s 4.7l, 32-valve, 4-cam 2UZ-DE V8 engine. The first of the GX series was made in 2002 with the release of the GX 470. The GX470 was quickly embraced in the Nigerian automarket considering its comfy interior and spaciousness fitting for the average family. However, production of the GX 470 ceased in 2009 making way for the release of the GX 460.

The GX460 rides on the success of the 470 as both vehicles are luxurious mid-size SUVs. With better appealing aesthetics and modern technologies, the GX 460 incorporates new, highly-appreciated safety features including Pre-Collision System, lane departure warning system, Driver Monitoring System, and Lexus Enform with Safety Connect telematics.

As mentioned earlier, the GX 470 is no longer in production. This means you are not likely to find brand new models of the car. But, be rest assured, the fairly used auto market in Nigeria is large, you can easily get a foreign used GX 470.

Since the Lexus GX470 is no longer in production, you can anticipate that it won’t have the upgraded technological features, design and engine options of newer models of the GX460. Nevertheless, you can choose to upgrade it to packages that suit you, but that’s a whole lot of spending.

Both the Lexus GX 460 and 470 are powered by a  4.6 Liter V8 and a 4.7 Liter V8 engine respectively. Being a V8, this means both SUVs has eight cylinders. The number of cylinders means that there is more fuel being pushed through the cylinders to create more force to move the car.

The average city gas mileage for the GX 470 is around 14 MPG, with around 18 MPG when driving on the highway. On the other hand, the gas mileage is fairly average for the GX 460, with 15 MPG in the city and 19 MPG on the highway with a fuel tank capacity of 23 gal. And, of course, it does have speed, getting to 60 MPH in just over seven seconds.
