The redesigned 2014 Lexus GX 460 Luxury Utility Vehicle (LUV) will be offered in two grades when it arrives at dealerships in the U.S.A from September 2013. The standard GX will cost around nine percent lesser than the previous year with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $49,085 (S$62,655), while the Luxury model will be priced at $60,715 (S$77,496).

The 2014 model year GX 460 features a new interpretation of the Lexus spindle grille with standard headlamps, daytime running lights and fog lamps featuring LED technology
The luxurious and spacious GX receives several interior enhancements starting with a new 8-inch touchscreen display that acts as a backup monitor, HD Radio, Bluetooth audio, automatic phone book transfer, a vehicle information display and complimentary traffic and weather data provided via HD Radio.

The cabin also gets new linear espresso wood/abyss black trim. Mahogany wood trim is included on both the Premium Package and Luxury model. For 2014, the GX offers an available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).

The new Premium Package will be at the same price as the base 2013 model year GX 460 and features added features like a navigation system with backup monitor, perforated leather trimmed interior, heated & ventilated front seats and a three zone climate control among others.

The Lexus GX 460 is powered by a 4.6-litre V8 mated to a six-speed Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i). The power unit is rated at 301bhp with an estimated return of 6.3km/L when city driving. Safety is not overlooked with 10 standard airbags and advanced pre collision with driver monitor on the luxury model.

The standard full-time four-wheel drive uses an electronically controlled transfer case and a TORSEN torque-sensing limited slip centre differential, which can be electronically locked. The Torsen differential distributes power 40:60 front/rear under most driving conditions and changes the ratio as needed based on wheel slip.
