with a series of advanced technologies. These supportive off-road features include
Crawl Control, a Steering Angle Indicator, the world's most advanced braking

Crawl Control maintains extremely low speeds by automatically controlling the
accelerator and brake, allowing the driver to fully concentrate on steering

hard left and right steering operation is required, the Steering Angle Indicator
enables drivers to check the angle and direction of the wheels, allowing the
vehicle to be operated calmly and confidently.

the vehicle to automatically set traction based on moment-by-moment conditions.
When the appropriate mode is engaged, the New GX460 is able to continuously

Select is in operation, allowing drivers to check their surroundings and minimize
blind spots. The New GX460 is therefore fully equipped to allow both novice
and experienced drivers to enjoy the off-road experience.

with floor function which automatically folds and stows the seats flush with
the floor at the touch of a button, providing a diverse range of storage usage
scenarios. Small amounts of cargo can be accessed in the luggage compartment
by opening the glass hatch separately.
