2011 Lexus GX 460 Interior
The 2011 Lexus GX 460 has an upscale and assembled interior. It can seat seven passengers. The long list of features translates into a busy-looking panel but even though, the controls are easy to use because of their intuitive placement. The gauges and optional navigation system can be easily read. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats and power-folding third row seats help with convenience when driving or doing daily suburban activities. Although, the second row seats are hard, uncomfortable, and flat. The cargo space and both the rear rows are lowered to create a useful 92 cubic feet of space.
The 2011 Lexus GX 460 has a swinging rear cargo door that is hinged at the passenger seats, instead of the regular liftgate. The design complicates the curb side but a flip-up rear window allows the car to stow smaller and lighter packages.
The base trim is well equipped with interior features such as dual-zone automatic climate control, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, and XM satellite. The Premium trim is well equipped with features such as three-zone automatic climate control, power-folding outside mirrors, perforated leather-trimmed interior, heated steering wheel, and heated middle row outboard seats.
Its interior colours include Black with perforated leather seat trim or semi-Aniline leather seat trim (Black), Sepia with perforated leather seat trim or semi-Aniline leather seat trim (Beige), and Ecru with perforated leather seat trim or semi-Aniline leather seat trim (Beige).
