2010 Lexus GX 460 Pricing

Arriving in US dealerships in late December, the 2010 Lexus GX 460 will be offered in two grades:

  • The base model starts at $51,970, with standard features like power fold-flat third row seats, heated/ventilated front seats, rear backup camera, ten airbags,integrated XM, Bluetooth & iPod control, a 4.2” multi-information display, nine speaker audio system and a sunroof.

    second row outboard seats, power electrochromic exterior side mirrors with power retract, headlamp cleaners, rear A/C, illuminated front scuff plates, rear air suspension, auto leveler, adaptive variable suspension, and color keyed body side molding.

So far, I haven’t come across a clear list of the GX stand-alone options, but the official press release also mentions two additional packages:

The Convenience Package includes electrochromic exterior mirrors with power retract, and Intuitive Parking Assist.  The Comfort Plus Package includes semi-aniline leather; heated second-row outer seats; wood-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob; and three-zone automatic climate control.

No word on the package pricing yet.

  1. “So far, I haven't come across a clear list of the GX stand-alone options, but the official press release also mentions two additional packages:”

    Good luck. Lexus’ option packages are vague - especially if you’re trying to build your own Lexus on their website.

  2. Still waiting for the CDN pricing. Most Canadian automotive sites are just talking about some of the features and when we will see the GX in showrooms December-January.

    As much as I do not like the new styling. We will have to live with it for the next 7 years or maybe sooner if it tanks and Lexus has to restyle it.

  3. Actually, despite all my criticisms, I’d like to thank Lexus for realizing that there still are people who want an SUV that is true to its name and can do more than the driver would ever need but might need in case of a smooth cruise through earthquake, hurricane, typhoon, tsunami, or tornado accidents. Real luxury SUV buyers really look forward to taking their SUVs on vacation, mountain hikes, etc, and we would proudly take the SUVs out for some offroading if we manage to find the time and place to - believe me, I’ve had some awesome adventures in my LX 470, and it will for always be my vacation vehicle.

    Still, HOW HARD CAN IT BE TO MAKE THE VEHICLE ATTRACTIVE?!?!?!:angry:

  5. I’m almost 90% sure that Lexus is going to discontinue the GX after this generation.
    They should bring out an ultra luxury Crossover that has looks and features of the LS(next gen). I’d definitely get that.

  6. @Eddie:
    I don’t know if they’ll get rid of the GX all together. I think a lot of it will surely depend on how well this model does but there is still a need for an SUV in this size. Some people need more than an RX and less than an LX. I think this is a really nice improvement on the old GX and will be interesting to see if they introduce some sort of X5 competitor or if they decide to make a Rav-4 sized SUV next

  7. @Eddie:
    Naw - the business dads and rich soccer moms from the alimony are large players in the GX’s market, but of course… the looks… Lexus will also be doing itself a favor by making its cars look better.

    If better looking, I can easily imagine mafias using the GX has a daily, all-road business rover with internet and TV and everything.

  8. i seriously want Lexus to hire me RIGHT NOW as a designer, i really think they just splash paint on a canvas and call it “headlight”. sigh…and 5K increase?...for what? for the heck of being expensive but not getting as much wood as the previous GX? what’s going on in those quiet and cold design rooms?...

  9. Looking at the Yen exchange rate lately, I’m pretty sure that’s a significant factor in the price increases.

  10. Anyone have the model code for the new GX?

  11. My lexus dealer just sent me an email saying they are taking $500 deposits because they will go quick.  I will politely tell her she will not be getting a deposit from me due to obvious reasons but that I am sure there will be plenty available. 

    Even though Toyota’s and Lexus’ are very dependable, its like they are GM,Chrylser, and Ford were 20 years ago.  They figure since its a “lexus” people will buy it no matter what.  And to note, with the economy the way it is, we all know how hard we have to work to give beyond what customers expect, plus give it to them at the same price or even lower.  Instead I feel Lexus is giving us less for more money.  Doesn’t make sense and I think they will find that out.  Then They will probably discontinue it in about 2 years because nobody is buying it because “there’s no market anymore for it” when in reality if they just designed it properly it would still be a success

  12. @jesseps:
    Probably FJ something, although that’s a given. most likely identical to that of the Prado.

  13. Eddie:I'm almost 90% sure that Lexus is going to discontinue the GX after this generation.

    I think it’s more likely that the LX will discontinued, though I strongly doubt that as well. I think another vehicle will be slotted between the RX & GX before anything is cancelled.

  14. @oafy44: I don’t know—at this price point,this new GX seems to pack in a lot of value. What do you think is missing?

  15. Dan:Looking at the Yen exchange rate lately, I'm pretty sure that's a significant factor in the price increases.

    The standard KDSS system and the interior tech upgrades likely played a role as well.

    It’s NOT LEXUS THING TO FAIL AND GIVE UP! AHA I hate being a fan of the LX. It always risks being phased out, unlike the freakin’ LS. Also, the LX just doesn’t get as much attention as other Lexus vehicles, especially the freakin’ LS!

  17. Brendan:Lexus' website claims the GX 460 has an iron block & aluminum heads.

    Brendan, here’s a quote from the Popular Mechanics review of the GX 460:

    The GX 470’s iron-block “2UZ-FE” 4.7-liter DOHC V8 has been replaced by the new, all-aluminum “1UR-FE” 4.6-liter V8 DOHC V8 (which is not, incidentally, the same 4.6-liter V8 installed in Lexus cars).

    Looks like we haven’t gone back in time after all. wink

  18. krew:Looks like we haven't gone back in time after all. wink

    I don’t know why so many magazines conclude with great certainty that the 460 engine is the same as the one in the LS. I’m pretty sure it’s not the same as the one in the GS’s indirect fuel-injection only engine either. meh… too lazy to check Wikipedia, which has quite a lot of reliable information about Toyota and Lexus engines.

  19. @WorldofLuxury: But I think it looks quite OK, easily better than the LX & RX. But that’s me wink

    LS RULESLOL

    I completely agree. It wouldn’t make sense for Lexus to discontinue either the GX or LX. For one both are just rebadged global Toyotas, so even if sales are low it won’t hurt the bottomline too much. Secondly Lexus just debuted the GX in China, so I doubt they would kill it after launching it in a new market.

    I also agree on the second point. It’s highly likely Lexus will just bring a new crossover to the lineup. By moving the GX upmarket with more standard features, and making it more offroad focused (with features like KDSS and such), Lexus made room for a crossover to slot below it. My guess is that this new crossover will be the LONG rumored JX. The timing is just right. The camouflaged JX prototypes were spotted at the same time as the 2010 RX mules, so Lexus should be ready to launch the JX sometime next year.

    Krew do you know if that’s whats going to be launched at Detroit?
