Expert Quotes:

15 mpg city, 20 highway
U.S. EPA

thirsty at the pump; I achieved 16 mpg in mixed driving
MSN Autos

averaged 15.9 mpg with slightly more city driving than highway use
Consumer Guide



The Lexus GX got a new engine last year, bringing significant improvements in fuel economy. The 2011 GX 460 is better on gas than some of its V-8 rivals, but at 15 mpg city, 20 highway it's still quite the guzzler, and near the bottom of the scale among all vehicles. And to add to the impact of the fuel bills, premium (91 octane or higher) gasoline is required.

But there is a positive note: In real-world driving, over several separate driving experiences, we've managed to meet or beat those EPA ratings, and averaged about 19 mpg overall in mixed-condition driving.

Conclusion

The 2011 Lexus GX 460 isn't green at all, and has a strong thirst for premium gasoline.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
