2010 Lexus GX460 VS 2010 4runner

hate to say it but the new GX460 looks 1000 times better than the new 5 gen 4runner and its v8 powered. i saw 3 of them today 1 pearl white and 2 black at my local Lexus dealer.

It has that squishy, bland, will-appeal-to-anyone flavor that most Toyota products have moved to in the past decade.

I'm glad the 4runner didn't fall into that pit. At least the T4R is edgy and exciting looking!

Well, having looked at both of them up close, I can tell you that the GX is WAY nicer on the inside. It is basically trimmed exactly like the LS Sedan...very plush. With that said though, you get what you pay for as the GX is hard to find under 57k.

I owned the previous generation GX and the 5th Gen 4runner feel much more nimble on the road (as far as I could tell on the test drive of the limited). Who knows how much better the new GX handles though, Iím sure itís better. The new rear door has a power window (still the massive barn door though) and the 3rd row folds flat instead of the fold up style jump seats from the previous gen.


4Runner wins in my book.

I'm sure it is.

indeed. And, there is the fact that the current commercial campaign on TV is a soccer mom dodging pot holes on the way to practice. Not really the tough, "manly" sort of image you would get with the 4runner.

I don't give a rat's patuti about image. If it came with a hatch on the back (instead of the barn door) and I could afford it, I'd seriously consider it.

But it does have a barn door and I can't afford it

My feelings exactly. When I bought my '04 Limited I seriously considered the GX 470 - but the rear door was a real turn-off for me - as was the bland exterior shape.

While I am not enamored by the 5th generation 4Runner, the GX isn't even an option. Sure it has the V8 and the folding 3rd row seats (and no cheap exterior antenna and non-locking gas fuel door!!!!), but the still-present rear barn door (although at least the glass now opens) and the very steep price jump precludes it from any serious consideration.

A neighbor has a new silver GX and while the I like the exterior more than I thought I would (although still bland), the dash reminds of a Lincoln.

Will be holding on to my '04 Limited for a few more years.

It has a strange swing down cover/door that does nothing but cover the stereo when closed. VERY Lincoln'esque.

I don't find the new GX appealing as far as exterior styling. The 4Runner looks far, far better. I do like the interior of the GX, though.

Either way, I'd say most of us buying the 4Runner don't really have the money for a GX, so it is a moot point.

Having come out of a higher end vehicle with all the goodies, leather, nav,blah,blah,blah....I don't miss it ONE bit!!!

Driving is fun as hell again......if I get a smudge on the seat...no big deal..if I get a little mud on the carpet , I'll put a hose to it.

AND.....I might add..I don't think there's anything wrong with the way it's set up...has a lot of little do-dads and gadgets...many more than I wouldv'e thought it would have.

I know the old different tastes thing...yada, yada...Driving is a blast again!!

Note to self: GROW UP!!!




Maybe tomorrow....

I really like the 4Runner interior (just wish they'd not done gray on the SR5 interior!). It fits the truck. I was just commenting that the interior on the GX is nice from a general perspective. For my usage, I don't want the GX interior. I can't throw a mountain bike in the back of that. haha

I don't plan on growing up any time soon.
