What Is the 2015 Lexus GX 460?

The 2015 Lexus GX 460 is a mid-size SUV with seating for seven in three rows. Two trims are available: Base and Luxury. Four-wheel drive is standard. Competing models include the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and Land Rover LR4.

What's New on the 2015 Lexus GX 460?

For 2015, the Lexus GX 460 gets available Siri Eyes Free Mode for iPhones, and the Lexus Enform App Suite comes with Slacker and iHeartRadio 4.0.

How Does the 2015 Lexus GX 460 Compare to Other Mid-Size SUVs?

The Lexus GX 460 is a traditional mid-size SUV with body-on-frame construction. So, dynamic handling and excellent gas mileage aren't its forte, but if you want an SUV that can tow and perform in harsh conditions, it's worth a look. You may be just as pleased, if not more so, with the Land Rover LR4, though. It offers a more refined drive for around the same price.

What Features in the 2015 Lexus GX 460 Are Most Important?

The GX 460 is powered by a 301-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. Full-time four-wheel drive with low range for off-road driving comes standard, and you can add an optional adaptive suspension for better ride quality. The GX 460 can tow up to 6,500 pounds.

Notable standard features include 18-inch wheels, a power moonroof and a rear window that can be opened independently of the liftgate. You'll also get three-row seating, a touchscreen stereo and a sliding, reclining second-row bench seat. Available features include LED fog lights, a power-folding third row, a navigation system, a dual-screen rear entertainment system and a Mark Levinson premium stereo.

As required in all new vehicles from this year, the 2015 GX 460 includes front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Eight additional airbags, active front head restraints and a backup camera are also standard. Available safety systems include lane departure warning, a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert and a pre-collision system, which can tighten the front seat belts and ready the brakes for stronger stopping performance.

Should I Buy the 2015 Lexus GX 460?

The cabin of the Lexus GX 460 is quiet with great visibility. On highways, ride quality is comfortable, and performance is sure-footed in the snow. Towing capacity is also impressive. Brake dive and body roll knock off some points in the performance category, though. Seating for seven might seem a plus for some families, but the uncomfortable second row and small third row with minimal cargo space behind it are drawbacks to consider.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
