The 2017 Lexus GX460 will be arriving next month and with the Lexus website already featuring the new model, we wanted to share all that we know about the updated 2017 GX.
The major updates include the 2nd row captain’s chairs which will be optional on the standard and premium model GX 460 and a standard feature for the luxury model. The 2017 Lexus GX will also offer an all-new Sport Design Package. As Lexus put it, “Building upon the dynamic style of the Lexus GX, the all-new Sport Design Package introduces an even more chiseled look.” The Sport Design Package will be optional for both the standard/premium and luxury models and will include Gunmetal Metallic 18-inch alloy wheels, exclusive front fascia with lower grille surround, Sport Design side mirrors with chrome detail, Sport Design rear valence, chrome exhaust tip and scarlet taillamps. If you opt for the Sport Design Package on the premium model GX460 then you will also get the 2nd row captain’s chairs as it appears these two new options will be grouped together. Other notable updates include a color change: Nightfall Mica will be replacing Satin Cashmere Metallic; and something new: the Scout based Navigation System will be a standard feature on the 2017 Lexus GX.**
**Since writing this post we have since found out from Lexus that the Scout GPS Link will not come on the GX460**
The Premium 2017 GX460 will be available 3 different ways: Premium Package with bench seat (as it is now), Premium Package with Captain’s Chairs and Sport Design Package and Premium Package with Captain’s Chairs.
- Premium Package with Captain’s Chairs and Sport Design Package: 18-inch split six-spoke alloy wheels with gray metallic finish, LED fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers, windshield deicer, Intuitive Parking Assist, Navigation Package, leather interior, Mahogany wood trim, Heated/Ventilated front seats, Heated 2nd Row Tilt/Slide Captain’s Chairs, 3-zone Climate Control; unique lower grille, front and rear spoilers, taillights, exhaust tip and side mirrors.
- Premium Package with Captain’s Chairs: 18-inch six spoke alloy wheels, LED fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers, windshield deicer, Intuitive Parking Assist, Navigation Package, leather interior, Mahogany wood trim, heated/ventilated front seats, heated 2nd row tilt/slide Captain’s Chairs and 3-Zone Climate Control.
- Premium Package: all that is on the Premium Package now (same as above but with bench seating).
We have also noticed that the Luxury Model GX460 with the Driver Assist Package will now include Mark Levinson. The 2016 GX with Driver Assist Package was noticeably missing the premium Levinson sound system so this will make a welcome addition to the fully equipped luxury GX.
