2015 Lexus GX 460 Styling

Styling

The 2015 Lexus GX was updated with the brand's new family face last year, and it sees no visual revisions for the current model year.

"Tough premium" is the way that Lexus refers to the interior, in which they've combined 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--assuring a sense of toughness--although inside, the look and layout are a somewhat more upright version of other Lexus cabins.

Lexus' spindle grille looks great on its sedans; it's a bit out of place on the bluff, buff GX SUV.

It now wears one of the most pronounced iterations of the brand's 'spindle' grille, which is flanked by large headlamps, some very noticeable chrome, and a pair of very aggressive looking air dams in the bumper.  From behind, it's more conservative–and cleaner–with its tall taillights and wide design. In profile, the GX is decidedly truck-like, thanks to its imposing beltline and carved-out fenders.

While the GX 460 is based on the brawny-looking 4Runner, it's more of a wallflower, overall. Lexus has 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.
