2017 Lexus GX 460 – Release Date, Specs & Info

The new 2017 Lexus GX 460 is a good choice for people looking for a traditional midsize SUV with three rows of seating. It offers plenty of luxuries and is a capable of-roader as well. You might however realize that the market offers better alternatives. The Lexus GX 460 2017 release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.

These days, and as has been for a while, only Lexus and Land Rover bother with building off-road capable and luxury SUVs. Indeed, Lexus offers a couple of these off-roaders including the GX 460. It comes riding on the same platform that defines the Land Cruiser Prado mechanical underpinnings. Some of the highlights that define it further include a serious off-roading capability, a full-time four-wheel drive, a traditional body-on frame construction, and a high-clearance suspension.

The 2017 Lexus GX 460 interior is laden with lots of standard luxury amenities than you’ll ever need. It rides softly and soaks bumps and flattens mundane road conditions without affecting the comfortable aura inside. There’re some foibles though, the infotainment system appears dated and some redesign could go a long way, and the backseat is somehow cramped relative to its competition.

Beneath the hood, it comes with the familiar V8 engine that puts out an incredible output of around 301 horsepower. Depending on whether you spend most of your time on the pavement or off of it, the segment offers plenty of alternatives. Some of the rivals hot on the heels of the Lexus GX 460 2017 include BMW X5, Acura MDX, Land Rover LR4, and Lexus’ own RX Series.

2017 Lexus GS F Release Date, Review and Specs

Spy photographs of the new-look 2017 Lexus GS F have been revealed. Based on the popular GS, the new model returns with an elegant-yet-aggressive styling. It is a jack of all trades when it comes to offering its enthusiasts an unprecedented level of style and comfort, all the while providing excitement and thrills on challenging situations. While its release date has been confirmed for mid-next month, its pricing estimates remain a mystery.

Although the 2017 Lexus GS F amps up the performance of the regular GS 350 coupe, its level of luxury and power might not be enough to topple other rival high-performance sedans. For 2017, buyers should expect the new model to return with mild changes over the existing model. And just like before, it comes as a response to the Audi RS, Cadillac’s V series, Mercedes-Benz’s AMG, and BMW’s “M” division.

Based on teaser images of the test mule, the new model comes with a reinvigorated attitude on its proverbial sleeve, boasting of upgraded carbon-fiber accents, quad tailpipe tips, and bodywork. Just like before, its bold front fascia is highlighted by race-inspired large brake calipers, low-slung wide stance, triple beam headlights, functional air inlets, quad exhaust rear diffuser, and a carbon fiber rear spoiler.

Beneath the hood, the new 2017 Lexus GS F returns with the naturally aspirated 5.0L V8 engine rated at 467 hp. This is the same powertrain that powers up the Lexus RC F – the last time I checked! In addition to producing that much power, it gets performance features such as a retuned suspension system, upsized brakes, and a torque-vectoring rear differential, all of which aid it in its quest to providing a scintillating performance.

At the end of the day, truth be told: the 2017 Lexus GS F still feels subpar in comparison to other alternatives offered. This is an all-star league that features rivals such as the 2016 BMW M5, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V, and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG E63. Although these rivals here are superior in terms of the dynamic range of ride comfort and handling, they lack the competitive price advantage the 2017 GS-F has.

As previously told, pricing info of the new-look is yet to be offered. Rumors however allege the new model will be offered for sale just within a reasonable boundary of the existing model’s MSRP, whose price starts from $84,000. Credible reports say its release date will occur sometime in the second half of 2017.

As the images portray, the exterior shape of the new model has been influenced by superior aerodynamics. In fact, rumors say the overall drag efficiency has greatly been enhanced over the previous model thanks to the aerodynamic stabilizing done on various sections of the panels. Although not very visible enough at the moment, the front fascia of the new model is highlighted by Lexus’ trademark spindle grille, and dramatically wide and tall air inlets.

The massive openings allow for brake cooling maximizing. The grille doesn’t seem to have changed at all, and returns with the lower molding that also adds to offering a sizable downforce. Lexus were also able to take the car’s sporty nature to a whole different angle thanks to the slightly redesigned sculpted rocker panels, and broad fender flares.

Due to the heavy-cladded camouflage, it is almost impossible to catch a glimpse of the rear profile. But just like front, the same theme of aggressive design also flows rearward. Just like its immediate predecessor, the model should also feature fin-shaped aerodynamic enhancements, organically shaped rear taillights, and a downforce-generating CFRP rear spoiler.
