Specs at a Glance
Lexus offers two different models in the full-sized luxury SUV category. Each offers high-quality features, stylish looks, and comfort that Lexus is known for. While the GX 460 and the LX 570 offer some similar features, there are some significant differences, such as the price.
Both the 460 and the 570 offer exceptional V8 power, their engines are different. The 460 features a 4.6L engine that produces an impressive 301 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque. Full-time four-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission come standard. The larger engine does not offer much in fuel economy, as the 460 gets 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway.
The 570 offers a much more powerful experience. The 5.7L engine cranks out 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque. The full-time four-wheel drive and six-speed automatic transmission are standard as well. As with the 460, the compromise between power and fuel economy is even bigger here as the 570 only gets 13 mpg city and 18 mpg highway.
Consumers may think that as far as exterior looks go, the 460 and the 570 have distinct styles while remaining relatively similar. The biggest difference is that the 570 is about half a foot larger, creating more cargo space. The 460’s exterior features include color-keyed running boards that match the vehicle’s color, roof rails to strap cargo onto, and a rear spoiler that helps improve the visibility in the rear window. The 570 features 21″ 10-spoke alloy wheels with a dark gray machined finish, illuminated running boards, and auto-dimming outside mirrors that tilt down automatically when the vehicle is in reverse to aid in seeing things on the ground behind the vehicle.
Both the 460 and the 570 offer a bevy of interior features that increase their comfort and functionality. The 460 features second-row captain’s chairs, 10-way power front seats with Lexus memory system that stores multiple drivers’ seat position preferences, and powered 50/50 split fold-down third-row seats that increase cargo capacity.

The 460’s entertainment system includes one rear entertainment screen and a 17-speaker audio system with an 8″ display screen.
The 570 offers a 14-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and a 12-way adjustable passenger seat. The 570 offers two different seating arrangements, two-row, and three-row. Both seating configurations offer customizable seating arrangements with the 60/40 split second-row seats that power-slide. The three-row offers a 50/50 power-folding third row of seats. The three-row also has a heated and wood and leather-trimmed steering wheel. The entertainment system is beefed up compared to the 460 in that the 570 offers two rear entertainment screens and a 19-speaker audio system with a 12″ display.
Both the GX 460 and the LX 570 offer luxurious comfort, style, and convenience while allowing for versatility with seating and cargo space. The biggest difference between the two is the price.
