Lexus GX 460 (150-Series)

Lexus GX 460

Model Years Produced: 2010 to Current

Summary

The GX 460 may look and feel like a luxury SUV, but under the skin, it is secretly a Toyota Land Cruiser in disguise. Sold as the “Land Cruiser Prado” overseas, the GX 460 is one of the most reliable vehicles on the planet – in fact, it was Consumer Reports’ most reliable vehicle of 2021. What’s more, it’s also an ultra-capable 4×4. Not bad for a truck that’s normally purchased by upper-middle-class suburban soccer moms.

The GX received a facelift in 2020 which also finally included modern safety features like lane departure warning and pre-collision warning. In 2022, it received an interior refresh which included a new infotainment system featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
