“This is the last body-on-frame, live-rear-axle classic SUV in the luxury class….” – Motor Trend, November 2009
Writers for the lifestyle website, Lavender.com, provide this background: “In places where roads are just a figment of one's imagination, this vehicle is a familiar sight. In jungles deep in Southeast Asia, the outback of Australia, the savannas of sub-Saharan Africa and the foothills of the Andes, the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is seen as the most capable of its kind. Only a few could follow this along its imaginary paths – the Land Rover LR4/Discovery is its exact rival. Both could carve out a path in any environment.
Sadly, Toyota does not sell the Land Cruiser Prado directly in its brand's North America showrooms. Instead, the capable Prado is transformed into a luxury SUV that still does the same job, but with a lot more comfort, acres more leather and wood, a longer warranty and (a) grander dealer service reputation.”
Offered here is a 2013 Lexus 460 in black over black-and-saddle. The SUV's odometer shows 100,998 miles, or roughly 12,500 miles per-year on average since new. The GX 460 has been regularly serviced by Lexus dealers as demonstrated by its Carfax history report. Two minor damage incidents—in 2015 and 2017—have long since been professionally corrected with no remaining indication of the incidents. The overall condition of the vehicle is impressive, inside, and out.

The black exterior paint finish retains near-factory-new perfection. Lexus vehicles are known for meeting the absolute highest manufacturing standards. Panel fit is perfect and panel gaps are within tight specifications. There are no dings, dents, or other noteworthy damage on the bodywork, including on the side-hinged rear-entry door. Chrome work is tastefully limited to the front grille, the door-handle trim, and rear-entry-door trim. Emblems are limited to just two Lexus “L” badges, one in the front grille, the other on the rear-entry door. Cabin glass—including the factory-tinted passenger and cargo area glass—in free of cracks or other damage; lighting lenses are similarly pristine. Six-spoke 18-inch wheels (with “L” logo center caps) are free of curb rash or other damage; Michelin® Defender LT/X 265/60 all-season tires are mounted.
Inside, the color theme is a pleasing black and saddle (the latter is light brown and gray mixture). Headliner and pillar trim is light beige. Interior door trim combines these two colors with handsome wood and brushed metal trim pieces. Throughout the cabin, virtually every surface is free of wear marks or other damage. Even door handles have not been abused by jewelry. Leather seat upholstery is in near-showroom-new condition free of any appreciable wear and absolutely no rips, tears, or abrasion. (Indicative of owners with rules for rear-seat passengers, front seat backs also show no wear.) Second-row air conditioning controls are in place. Saddle-colored trim panels in the cargo area have been maintained properly. Carpeting in the same saddle color throughout the cabin, including the rear cargo area, is in excellent condition. Third-row seats are folded by way of pillar-mounted controls. An “L”-branded steering wheel (with finger controls), in black with wood trim, fronts comprehensive driver instrumentation set in the black upper-dash. The lower and center dash incorporates saddle, brushed metal, and wood trim for a luxury design statement. The center stack houses a large, digital driver-information screen. To the rear, the leather-topped shift lever for the 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission (with limited-slip differential) is console-mounted just forward of another lovely wood trim piece.
Under the hood, the 4.6-liter, 301-horsepower, 32-valve, dual-overhead-cam V8 holds centerstage position in a very clean, properly organized engine bay free of any non-factory modifications. All factory-installed protective cladding is in place. Viewed from below, the chassis is straight, complete, and free of damage. Noteworthy are the sturdy suspension components proven over years of refinement in Toyota Land Cruiser models. All protective panels are in place, and a rear towing package is properly installed.
While the more than 125 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '13 Lexus GX 460 in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom.

The GX 460 is Lexus' top-of-the line SUV. It combines tried-and-true design, the latest technology, and the highest level of luxury appointments in a single vehicle. On top of all that, the next owner of this example is likely to regularly enjoy one more aspect of the SUV, as the Lavender writer discovered to their delight: “… the GX is a real treat to drive.”
