Overland Classifieds :: 2018 Lexus GX460 fully-outfitted

The Lexus GX460 isn’t the first 4WD that comes to mind when we think of capable overlanding rigs. In fact, families usually choose this model as a practical daily driver rather than an expedition vehicle. But that’s what makes today’s listing so special; it’s a fantastic example of what’s possible with imagination, expertise, extensive modifications, and deep pockets. This GX460 has been transformed from an everyday run-around into a one-of-a-kind hardcore overland rig.

From the Seller:

“Vehicle is up to date on all scheduled maintenance, including major services [carried out by the] Lexus dealership. Vehicle still under powertrain factory warranty (70,000 miles).”

2018 Lexus GX460

The GX460 combines comfort and luxury with impressive all-terrain performance. Sharing its basic structure with the Toyota 4Runner, the Lexus is not just a versatile seven-seater family SUV but a capable 4WD vehicle. A 4.6-liter V8, matched with a six-speed automatic, produces an impressive 301 horsepower and 329 pound-feet of torque. Furthermore, it incorporates Kinetic Dynamic suspension as standard, which improves handling without the need for stiffer springs and dampers. Full-time 4WD is bolstered via a Torsen limited-slip center differential and two-speed transfer case. Hardware is optimized with clever onboard systems such as Downhill Assist, Hill-Start Assist, Active Traction Control, Crawl Control, and more. This model also integrates a 1,260-pound payload and a 7,000-pound maximum towing capacity.
