2010 Lexus GX 460
Montreal, Quebec – Lexus has presented the Canadian debut of the all-new 2010 Lexus GX 460 at the Montreal International Auto Show. The next-generation SUV is designed to deliver luxury levels of comfort, convenient and versatility for active, affluent Canadian families, while offering weekend adventure with uncompromising capability and safety.
“Drivers looking for an authentic, body-on-frame SUV will find the luxury market is full of models that emphasize on-road enjoyment at the expense of off-road capability,” said Larry Hutchinson, director of Lexus in Canada. “In this field, the new GX stands head and shoulders above the rest. With the new GX 460, our guests will discover once again why they can turn to Lexus, and no other luxury automaker, for the anytime, anywhere driving confidence that helps deliver more perfect moments of adventure and the time of their lives.”
The 2010 GX includes a new V8 with six-speed automatic transmission that provides 14 per cent more power, yet is 11 per cent more fuel efficient than the vehicle it replaces. Advanced handling and control is achieved through available crawl control, the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, Multi-Terrain Select and other technologies, while a long list of interior and exterior upgrades include 18-inch wheels, heated and ventilated seats, push-button start, backup camera, active front head restraints, and a segment-leading total of ten airbags.
The GX 460 will start at $68,500 and will be on display throughout the public days of the show.
