Expert Quotes:

Consumer Guide



The 2012 GX 460 is in many respects an homage to older truck-based luxury SUV designs, and in fuel efficiency there's no real exception. Even with a new engine, which brought some mileage improvements, the GX stands at an EPA-rated 15 mpg city, 20 highway. At that, 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.

To put this in a positive light, in real-world driving we've managed to meet or beat those ratings across a couple of drives--a feat we can't claim in many new vehicles.

Conclusion

Don't even think about the 2012 Lexus GX 460 if making a green statement is important.

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.
