    Nice except the spindle grill “Cleft Lip” front will keep me away and look to Mercedes or Land Rover to purchase instead. Horrible look.

  2. luis says:

    I like it….if there is a really fuel economy I’m going to have it.

  3. Uncle Jack says:

    I am so impressed with the upgrades to the 2017 GX 460 with less weight, more horsepower and better fuel economy! I look forward to the release date! I didn’t quite understand the 20 inch wheelbase diameter comment. But I’m sure it will be clarified in future press releases.

    I have a 2006 Lexus GX and I love it and looking to buy a 2017 when they come out with it unless they change the rear tailgate or I will go buy a Mercedes.

  5. Caesar says:

    Will they change the tail gate? They should listen to the customer on the type of tail gate

  6. I think it looks great. I love Lexus’ quiet ride. That is what’s keeping me from buying the new Volvo XC90..interior noise!! The only real request I have for Lexus is please make available the Mark Levinson sound system on lesser GX models. I want the beautiful Mark Levinson sound but just can’t afford the high-end Luxury model. Other companies make their upgraded sound systems available across the product line, WHY NOT YOU!!!

  7. ALSO, please, PLEASE make available additional color choices…BLUE MAYBE?

  8. looks good.the inside looks like a gs model.

    My sis-in-law test drove a current GX. Loved every aspect of the car and was ready to buy on the spot, until she saw the tailgate.

    I’m on the market for a lux SUV. I ruled out the current GX due to its tailgate.

    I’m not going to wait another year just to see if they change the tailgate.

  10. Yoasi says:

    I’m on my 3rd if they don’t change the back door I’m going to look for a new vehicle captain back seats would be nice to love the car otherwise

  11. Erica says:

    I agree, captains back seats would be great!!

  12. Neekon says:

    I am missing some thing here??! The picture of exterior is the same as 2015 and is not 2017. Is there a picture of 2017 which have missed?

  13. David says:

    I purchased my new GX-470 back in 2005. I’ve been waiting for the GX-460 to come with A DUAL EXHAUST SYSTEM. Hopefully, the new GX-460 will be equipped with one like the RX-350 or RX-400!!!!!

    I’ll not buy another one if, it doesn’t come with a DUAL EXHAUST or a DUAL EXHAUST OPTION.

    I’ll purchase a Mercedes-Benz or BMW SUV because, they all comes with DUAL EXHAUST SYSTEMS and most all other SUVs come with this system too!
