If you need an SUV capable of tackling the roughest terrain, but yearn for a luxurious cabin outfitted with upscale amenities and versatile seating, the 2012 Lexus GX 460 will meet your unique demands
Due to its rugged body-on-frame construction, we found the Lexus GX 460's overall ride quality and ambient noise levels a bit below par for a luxury vehicle. By comparison, the Acura MDX and the Merce
It was apparent following our comprehensive road test that the 2012 Lexus GX 460's natural habitat is in the dirt. Designed to withstand the abuses associated with hardcore off-road excursions, the GX 460's fully-boxed frame is a fish out of water on the pavement. And, while overall ride quality is certainly acceptable for most drivers, the GX 460 does not live up to the discriminating Lexus standards for world-class driving comfort.

"This is my second GX, I traded in a 2006 on this one at Lexus of Las Vegas a month ago. Unfortunately, Lexus skimped on this one. It is sold as an off road vehicle but does not come with the proper tires.

If you do buy one, be sure it comes with the right tires."
