The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 GX 460 is a good pick for those who need the serious towing ability of a body-on-frame SUV, along with the refinement of a Lexus. But gas mileage is dismal, and it has some pretty critical packaging flaws that limit its usefulness.
