The GX460’s interior warms up as quickly as it cools, thanks to separate air conditioning compressor units in the front and rear of the vehicle. For colder climates, these operate at twice the output of conventional systems, and have been extensively tested in extremes from -45°C right up to +45°C. Further comfort is provided by Ventilated Seats with heating for the front seats (Optional), heated outboard second row seats (Optional), and Heated steering wheel.
The auto air conditioning system features triple-zone independent temperature controls which enable the driver, front seat passenger and rear seat passengers to control individual climate zones according to their requirements.
Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System
The electronically modulated KDSS (Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System) uses a hydraulic system that connects the front and rear stabilizers, and controls them in response to the driving terrain, to realize both excellent on-road ride comfort and off-road driveability.
In on-road driving, KDSS suppresses body roll, contributing to excellent stability, control and ride comfort when cornering. In off-road driving, KDSS keeps all tires firmly in contact with the ground even when traveling over rocks and other demanding terrain, providing outstanding traction for excellent rough-terrain driveability and control, contributing to the enjoyment of a secure and stable ride.
Advanced Driving Systems
AVS (Adaptive Variable Suspension system) minutely controls the damping force of the shock absorbers independently on each of the four wheels, providing excellent stability, control and ride comfort in various driving conditions. The electronically controlled rear air suspension enables you to adjust vehicle height.
The full-time 4WD system features a transfer switch for changing between low-range and high-range drive. The center differential uses a TORSEN® LSD (Limited Slip Differential) that can instantaneously optimize the front-to-rear distribution of torque according to driving conditions. Without accelerator or brake pedal operation, Crawl Control enables driving at a very low vehicle speed just by steering operation, reducing the demands on the driver in off-road driving. At the same time, it suppresses wheelspin and wheel lock-up by independently controlling each of the four wheels.
