If you haven’t followed Lifestyle Overland on YouTube yet crawl on out from underneath the rock you’ve been hiding and look them up! They’re one of the most prolific and trusted overland enthusiasts on YouTube. They got their start in a Toyota 4Runner before transitioning to a Lexus GX460 – logging enormous miles on both…. so they know which is better: The Toyota 4Runner or Lexus GX460!
This comparison delves into the juxtaposition of the Lexus GX 460 and the Toyota 4Runner, addressing their similarities and differences while reflecting on over 250,000 miles of experience with both vehicles. Comparing size, weight, and power aspects, they reveal nuanced disparities like the GX’s larger size and its 4.6-liter V8 engine that offers more horsepower and torque compared to the 4Runner’s 4.0-liter V6. They also touch on maintenance considerations, common weaknesses such as the Forerunner’s rear wheel bearings and the GX’s steering linkage, and offers insights into towing and transmission cooling.
Ultimately, the video presents a well-rounded perspective on both vehicles, highlighting their strengths and drawbacks based on real-world usage, off-road performance, and daily practicality. We highly recommend you give it a watch if you are trying to decide between the two platforms!
