The 2010 Lexus GX460 is ready for anything…except a small garage


Fresh off a recall for potential rollover problems, the 2010 Lexus GX460 showed up in my driveway all tall and confident.  With an updated exterior, the GX460 still looked spacious, large, and big.  It looked ready for anything, honestly.  Except a small garage.

The interior has received an significant update, yet it still seems to look dated.  I understand the GX460 is supposed to be utilitarian, but my initial impression is that the squarey theme overtakes much of the luxury vibe the Lexus nameplate is supposed to inject. 

Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice.  But I didn’t feel as pampered as I expected.  On the other hand, if I’m towing a boat, do I care about pampering?  If I’m incorporating actual utility into my Sports Utility Vehicle, does pampering matter?

The GX460 is trying to walk a line.  Over the course of my test drive, does it accomplish this?  Check back with and find out.
