Its outside stance is tall and narrow, like a distinguished Englishman in a top hat.

Throughout the GX, designers have blended the gentle, organic, and aerodynamic styling of the Lexus L-Finesse designs of recent years with a "machined steel bar" theme, giving it a more sculpted, solid 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,' with carved-out fenders and the very tall, imposing beltline. Lexus likes to think of the interior as "tough premium," with the GX 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.

Motor Trend: "Overall, the GX looks more sculpted, more muscular."
MotorWeek: "indeed both a throwback and unique."
Edmunds: “The GX 460's grille makes a rather bold styling statement.”
MotherProof: "It’s a little sleek, a little rugged and a little boxy"
Autoblog: “The 2010 Lexus GX 460 is trucky and proud of it”
Popular Mechanics: “the GX 460's cockpit certainly has its charms and delights.”
Motor Trend: "The overall look of the center stack and center console area is cleaner and more elegant than before."
Edmunds: “One wag likened the GX to an ancient Japanese warrior mask.”
Autoblog: “It's definitely a rugged looking vehicle, even if we think it looks like it could have debuted in 2000 just as easily as 2010”

Conclusion

The 2010 Lexus GX 460 doesn't stray much from convention, but the classy, uncluttered look inside is a step in the right direction.

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.
