Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson Okojie, popularly called Mercy Johnson, is one of the best acts of Africa’s largest movie industry.
The sultry actress made a mark in her acting career when she starred in the movie, ‘The Maid’ in which she acted as a possessed housemaid. Since she became a known face, she has continued to impress her teeming fans with her unique skills.
She is also well known for causing unavoidable stares at functions with her big busts which she flaunts each time situations permit.
The sexy mother of one received a N15m cream-colouredLexus GX 460 SUV as gift from her husband, Prince Odi Okojie.
The 30-year-old screen diva’s customised GX 460 SUV has a number plate that says ODI-WIFE which seems to profess her love for her husband.
Not many vehicles can be tough and well-mannered at the same time, but the 2013 GX 460 seems to be supremely talented in both areas.
The Lexus GX 460 is powered by a 4.6 litre V8 engine, producing 301 horsepower and 329 pound-feet of torque. Its six-speed automatic transmission, which is the only available gearbox, routes power to all four wheels via a dual-range transfer case. Properly equipped, the GX 460 provides ample performance and can tow up to 6,500 pounds when properly equipped.
In Edmunds testing, it accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds, an average time for a V8-equipped luxury SUV. The United States Environmental Protection Agency fuel ratings come in at 15 mpg in the city/20 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg in combined driving. In brake testing, the GX 460 slowed from 60 mph to zero in 127 feet, average for its class.
It is a seven-passenger luxury SUV, offered in base and Premium trim levels. Standard features on the base GX 460 include 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, sunroof, leather upholstery, driver memory settings, power-folding third-row seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Also standard are back-up camera, a nine-speaker audio system with a six-CD changer, Bluetooth audio, satellite radio, iPod connectivity and an auxiliary audio jack.
The GX 460 Premium, on the other hand, adds adaptive variable suspension (with rear adjustable height control), auto-dimming side-view mirrors, adaptive xenon headlights, upgraded leather upholstery, a heated wood-trimmed steering wheel, heated second-row seats and rear air-conditioning. Most of these features are available as options on the base model.
The 2013 Lexus GX 460 comes standard with antilock brakes, traction and stability control, hill descent control, hill start assist, front- and rear-seat side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags and roll-sensing side curtain airbags spanning all three rows. A collision mitigation system is included with the optional adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure and distracted-driver alerts are also optional features.
Interior Design and Special Features
The interior of the GX 460 is upscale and assembled with precision, though the lengthy features list translates into a somewhat busy-looking control panel, but these controls are easy to use, thanks to intuitive placement. The gauges are easily read, as is the optional navigation system.
The 60/40-split-folding rear seats and power-folding third-row seats help add convenience for most everyday suburban affair. Those who like to take corners more aggressively, however, will notice ample body roll and intervention from the stability control system.
The Premium trim’s adaptive variable suspension and rear adjustable height control enhance versatility and convenience by allowing the driver to select a stiffer or softer suspension tuning for various conditions. These features also adjust the rear height by more than an inch for added off-road ground clearance and easier cargo loading.
The good: The GX 460 comes equipped with a one-year free trial of Lexus’ Safety Connect system, which offers automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle location, enhanced roadside assistance and an emergency assist button.
The bad: With its hefty 4.6-litre V8 engine, the GX feels tiresome to drive on the highway and it requires premium fuel, which may not appeal to families who need an SUV to carry them through the daily grind.
