2016 Lexus GX 470 exterior
The 2016 Lexus GX 470 is going to adopt an innovative form. As this may well be the last vehicle that carries the GX brand it is no doubt that it will have all the latest and combined features of the preceding vehicles. The car is of course heavily based on the last model which was updated in 2014. This said, the car is going to continue with using open outside framework but it is going to add some new style changes and adopt some new features that are going to make it more than distinguishable from the previous cars. The headlights and the taillights have changed as well and have been overhauled this time. They now fit a more contemporary look which is much more fitting for a new SUV like this one.
The front part of the car is going to continue with the Lexus GX brand grille. This is somewhat of a trademark of this type of cars so Lexus has deemed it fit for the new GX 470 to carry on the legacy of its fore-vehicles this way. The combination with other elements that surround the grille make of a unique look and appearance for the vehicle. Surrounding the grill and fitted to the front fascia are going to be some fog lights with LED additions and hurricane wipers for much higher use. The compound wheels are another part which makes it into the design of the new 2016 GX 470 car.
The inside of the 2016 Lexus GX 470 offers a proper and quite an appropriate inside setting. The inside of the vehicle is quite roomy and offers enough space to fit in 7 people all at once. The people seated inside will also get to feel very comfortable as there is enough headroom and legroom for everyone to feel great. The interior is going to be similar to the previous versions of the GX in terms of style as it adopts a look which provides us with great awareness of our surrounding. The design is a pretty good one in fact and should not be changed as it brings us a fabulous look to the car.
But the added changes are going to fit modern standards and are going to update the technology of the car first. The updated infotainment system is suitable for the people inside the car as they can enjoy even the longer trips without problems. The seats are going to be upgraded with some better materials which are only going to add to the comfort levels for the car. The first two rows of seats are also going to add seat warmers while the front seats come with ventilation. The safety has also been something that was enhanced as now you get the use of a much safer vehicle than before.
It appears that this version of the 2016 Lexus GX 470 is going to come with only one engine option. The powertrain in question is going to use a 4.8 L V8 engine choice which allows it to produce a power level of 310 horsepower as well as also 330 extra pound feet torque. The vehicle is going to adopt a 5-speed digitally controlled automatic transmission as its base choice and is something that can be perceived as being pretty useful for a vehicle like this.
Price and release date
There are many indications on when the car is actually going to come out. The 2016 Lexus GX 470 is scheduled to appear this year and we are expecting its respective release date to be issued in the middle of the year. The starting price of the vehicle may start at around $50,000 but with the added features and elements it may even amount to a total of $70,000, but this has not yet confirmed so expect a pricing so somewhere in between.
