When it arrives in dealerships this July, the 2013 Lexus GX 460 mid-size luxury SUV will carry a base price about $200 more than the virtually identical 2012 model. Priced from $53,445, plus an $875 destination charge, the base model GX 460 totals $54,320 with no additional options.
Stepping up to the GX 460 Premium results in an out-the-door price of $58,915 (including destination charge).
Both versions of the seven-passenger, three-row GX 460 come well-equipped, and both have standard full-time four-wheel drive. The GX 460 is one of only a few remaining mid-size SUVs with a body-on-frame platform, making it more than suitable for off-roading. The GX 460, properly equipped, can also tow up to 6,500 pounds.
Option packages include a stand-alone navigation system with Lexus Enform telematics ($1,990), or the same navigation system with a Mark Levinson premium surround-sound system ($3,930). There’s also a Sport package that includes 18-inch F Sport wheels and more for $1,999.
On the GX 460 Premium only, buyers can opt for two upgraded safety packages: a pre-collision system and driver attention monitor package ($2,670), and the same system with a wide-view front/side monitor system ($3,170).
Additional options and accessories include glass breakage sensor ($205), remote engine starter ($429), Intuitive Parking Assist ($500), and dual-screen DVD rear-seat entertainment system ($2,300).
