The GX 460 is very quiet and quick, yet this hulking brute is both highly capable off-road and capable of towing a 6,500-pound load.
The 4.6-liter V8 engine and six-speed automatic make for a slick powertrain but got a paltry 17 mpg overall.
Handling is lumbering but ultimately secure.

Inside, the cabin is plush and well-finished.
Drivers of almost any height should find a good seating position.
There's plenty of space all-around and a commanding view out.
The small third-row seat folds neatly into the floor when it's not in use, but the side-swinging rear door can be inconvenient at times.
Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning are standard.
