Overland Classifieds :: 2018 Lexus GX460

It’s fair to say that Lexus isn’t the first company that comes to mind when thinking about overland vehicles. I considered the company’s offerings to be luxury daily drivers that also offered 4WD rather than rugged all-terrain vehicles, but my thinking changed after watching Scott Brady put Overland Journal’s Lexus GX470 buildthrough its paces on the Expedition Portal YouTube channel. Since then, I’ve grown to appreciate Lexus 4WDs which do a fantastic job of balancing go-anywhere capability with luxurious interior comfort. We’ve shared a number of expedition-ready examples on our forum, including this 2005 GX470, a 2009 Lexus LX570, and a heavily modified 2018 GX460. Today’s 2018 GX460 has covered just 31,000 miles and features a well-equipped interior with a number of desirable factory options and a long list of premium modifications.

From the Seller:

For sale is my 2018 Lexus GX460. I purchased the vehicle in November of 2021 after the original owner traded it back into the dealer they originally purchased it from. I am the second owner, and there is time remaining on the Lexus CPO warranty. The exterior color is black onyx, and the interior is sepia. Mechanically, the vehicle is a perfect 10/10. It starts, idles, and drives as if it was brand new. It’s up to date on maintenance, all of which has been performed by the aforementioned Lexus dealer. I can provide maintenance records going back to the first service.”
