2011 Lexus GX 460 Styling

7.0
Styling
The 2011 GX 460 is by no means extroverted or flashy; rather, with its redesign last year, designers blended the gentle, organic, and aerodynamic styling of recent Lexus L-Finesse designs with a "machined steel bar" theme, giving it a more sculpted, solid (but simple and straightforward) look that separates it from the cars and crossovers.

From the front, the likeness with Lexus cars is obvious, with a similar chromed grille flanked by rather large headlamps (which bow slightly to meet U.S. regs). In back, the GX has a clean, uncluttered look, mainly thanks to the narrow vertical taillamps and a new wiper design that's hidden under the roof spoiler. Alongside, the GX looks the most 'trucky,' because of its carved-out fenders and very tall, imposing beltline.

Lexus refers to the interior design as "tough premium," with the GX 460 combining the expected chunky trim and bulkier door handles with soft, luxurious materials. The instrument-panel design is quite upright and has a horizontal-bar theme running its length.

The 2011 Lexus GX 460 appears conservative inside and out, but it's classy, uncluttered look with more than a dash of truck ruggedness.
