Default Gas Mileage for 2014 GX460

Just wondering what kind of gas mileage people are getting on their 2014 GX460's. I'm consistently getting about 13 mpg and no better than that. Mostly city driving. Just passed 2,000 miles on the odometer.

Default Just over 3000 miles now.

I just finished back to back 600 mile vacation weekends. Was able to get 20-21MPG on highway at 78-80 average. In combined driving during the week, averaging out at 17-17.5 MPG.

We're actually able to hit the 20mpg highway figure pretty easily, first car I've been able to do that in. Wife averages 19-20mpg driving 90% highway

I have 3500 miles on my '13. I am getting 20-21 on the highway (just did a 500 mile trip each way) and averaging 17.6 overall. My low was 12.8 but sometimes it was warming up and sitting still during a really snowy period. My all time high was 22.8 on a trip to TN. Overall pretty well satisfied as I am coming from a Sequoia that averaged about 15 overall. I hope it will get a bit better as it gets well "broken in" - my 4Runners and Sequoia continued to improve up to about 10K miles.

highway, mostly above 23 mpg.
make sure tires are inflated correctly. thats a big factor in mpg in this suv

I saw a noticeable increase in fuel efficiency after 25K miles on my 2011 GX 460. I now average 17 city/hwy driving.

I hope Lexus comes up with something better in the future on the gas mileage. I have 20,000 miles on my 2014 and I never seem to get anything better than an average of 15mpg. It is a real gas guzzler when you are in Atlanta rush hour traffic. I can go through a quarter of a tank going 30 miles in stop and go traffic. I have mentioned this factor in all the surveys they send me. I compare it to the fact that I have driven new 2014 rental vehicles like the Chevy Suburban and Dodge Ram 1500 that get over 20 mpg with more weight and bigger engines. I love driving the GX. The touch screen makes a world of difference compared to our RX with the mouse.

I get 15 in the city and 20 on the highway without babying it. No comment on your comparison to a Suburban or Ram 1500 because those comparisons make no sense.

Did you expect more neighbor? I knew 15mpg or less would be average.

I saw 23 mpg on the display on a 400 mile trip driving 70-78. I think we had a bit of a tailwind helping out too. I didn't hand calculate it so I'm not sure how far off the computer is from the actual mileage. Around town short trips we average 16ish.

The window sticker displayed 15 city and 20 highway with an average of 17. I knew what I was getting into before I paid for it. Complaining about it after purchasing and reading does not make sense to me. Now asking Lexus to make something better for the future or offer a diesel, that seems productive.

Highway roughly 21, local about 15, does what Lexus claimed in the sticker.

Got 22.7 on a six hour trip this past weekend driving 78-80 mph most of the time. Cargo area was pretty full. Actual calculated not relying on dash display. I am really pleased with that! Not only that gas was much cheaper in KY and TN than it is here in WV.
