Al-Futtaim Motors, the exclusive distributor for Lexus in the UAE, has announced the arrival of the luxurious GX460 which transitions into the new model year 2012 with a combination of family-friendly comfort, safety, off-road capabilities and premium craftsmanship.
With enhanced design and safety features, the new GX 460 luxury utility vehicle features a quiet cabin and a long list of standard options that make it a versatile choice for UAE customers who yearn for luxury refinement, power and splendid comfort.
Saud Abbasi, General Manager, Al-Futtaim Motors Lexus, stated: “Lexus produced the GX460 for customers who want a blend of luxury, comfortand a sure-footed powerful vehicle. While capable of tackling the hardest off-road terrains, GX460 offers our customers a comfortable ride equal to any other Lexus models.”
He continued: “With the new GX 460, there are no compromises. The vehicle is both efficient and luxurious and comes with new exciting features that enhance both its look and safety. This Lexus modelis a luxury utility vehicle capable of delivering genuine off-road driving in all type of terrains. In the continuous effort to enhance safe driving, Daytime Running Lights are also standard equipment on the new Lexus GX 460.”
The new GX features new wheel design with high gloss finish. The Platinum grade enjoys the exceptional Mark Levinson audio system and Rear Seat Entertainment giving rear seat passengers an enhanced video, music and gaming experience.
The vehicle’s exceptional driving performance is supported through a series of advanced technologies underpinned by its powerful V8 engine. The GX460 powertrain comprises a 4.6 litre V8 engine delivering 292 horsepower coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
In order to deliver maximum off-road driving enjoyment, the GX460 comes equipped with a series of advanced technologies. These supportive off-road features include Crawl Control, a Steering Angle Indicator, the world’s most advanced braking and traction system, Multi-terrain Select, and the sophisticated Multi-terrain Monitor.
Crawl Control maintains extremely low speeds by automatically controlling the accelerator and brake, allowing the driver to fully concentrate on steering and proceed confidently through rocky terrain. In off-road situations where hard left and right steering operation is required, the Steering Angle Indicator enables drivers to check the angle and direction of the wheels, allowing the vehicle to be operated calmly and confidently.
The driver can choose from one of the four Multi-terrain Select modes – ‘mud and sand’, ‘loose rock’, ‘mogul’ and ‘rock’ - to match road conditions, signalling the vehicle to automatically set traction based on moment-by-moment conditions. When the appropriate mode is engaged, the New GX460 is able to continuously deliver optimum traction. The Multi-terrain Monitor can be used when Multi-terrain Select is in operation, allowing drivers to check their surroundings and minimize blind spots. The New GX460 is therefore fully equipped to allow both novice and experienced drivers to enjoy the off-road experience.
Every passenger in the GX460 will notice the superior comfort and security. During the development, particular attention was given to seat functions and the utilization of interior space.
For the second row seats, walk-in and slide functions are adopted along with 40:20:40 split folding seat back. The third row seats feature a power flush with floor function which automatically folds and stows the seats flush with the floor at the touch of a button, providing a diverse range of storage usage scenarios. Small amounts of cargo can be accessed in the luggage compartment by opening the glass hatch separately.
The New GX460 was designed with a thorough commitment to safety, allowing all occupants to ride with confidence. In terms of preventative safety features, the GX460 offers a Pre-Crash Safety System that warns drivers of potential collisions and minimizes impact should a collision occur. The Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) boosts visibility when cornering. Collision safety features also aim to protect the safety of every occupant. These include Front Active Headrests that reduce the risk of whiplash during a rear collision and an advanced Supplement Restraint System (SRS) including driver and front row passenger knee airbags and roll sensing curtain airbags to protect even those riding in the third-row seats.
All new 2012 Lexus vehicles come with five years complimentary unlimited warranty. GX 460 is available in two models, Prestige and Platinum starting at AED 248,000.
