The only naturally aspirated V8 engine in its class,* this 4.6-liter engine delivers an impressive 301 horsepower.* While the Variable Valve Timing with intelligence helps to improve low-speed torque and high-speed horsepower.
What gives this rugged SUV better traction in both on-road and off-road driving situations? Having power directed to all four wheels—all of the time. Off-road, the transfer case can run in locked or unlocked mode, as well as in high or low range.
The available Adaptive Variable Suspension system monitors and adjusts the electronically controlled shock absorbers of each wheel according to conditions and preference. This creates optimal comfort for every occupant. The driver can also tailor ride and handling characteristics by selecting from among Normal, Sport or Comfort modes.
The available Multi-Terrain Select system helps drivers stay secure, no matter the landscape. Adjust the amount of traction and response by choosing from five different types of terrain (Rock, Rock & Dirt, Mogul, Loose Rock, or Mud & Sand).
329 lb-ft of torque at low rpm enables the GX to tow up to 6,500 lb. While Trailer Sway Control adds peace of mind as part of the Vehicle Stability Control system. To help reduce sway, braking is applied independently to each wheel.
Full-time four-wheel drive helps give the GX better traction on-road and off. While the Torsen® torque-sensing limited-slip center differential more efficiently distributes engine power between the front and rear axles to optimize traction even further.
Seating six or seven, the GX SUV provides a first-class experience with available second-row captain's chairs* and standard fold-flat 50/50-split third-row seats. While drivers can enjoy the comfort of an ergonomic steering wheel shared with the flagship LX.
Combining craftsmanship with comfort, the Lexus GX interior features a leather-trimmed shift knob and a steering wheel trimmed in hand-selected wood and leather. The steering wheel's available heating function monitors and adjusts to maintain a set temperature.
Soft yet durable, the available semi-aniline leather interior trim surrounds you in both comfort and luxury. Crafted with purpose, it requires a higher grade of leather and is dyed all the way through, unlike those which use conventional surface dyes.
Use the high-resolution multimedia display or your voice to access the available Navigation System. It can map millions of points of interest across the country, offer up-to-date Traffic and Weather information, or 3D city views. It also can automatically display nearby gas stations if you begin to run low on fuel.
Manage your vehicle on the go with the new Lexus app. You can do everything from starting your vehicle remotely with your smartwatch to scheduling a service appointment with a few simple taps. The Lexus app is available for download from the Apple App Store® or Google Play™ store.
This three-spoke steering-wheel design was inherited from the flagship LX. Behind it you'll find a larger digital multi-information display within the gauge cluster that delivers key data at a glance.
Every Lexus is backed by a comprehensive warranty that should give you miles and miles of confidence. But in case you wanted to extend your peace of mind, you'll find a variety of plans available, including ones for longer-term care, one that covers accessories and another in the event of a total loss of your Lexus due to theft, fire or accident.
Change lanes with confidence. The Blind Spot Monitor is designed to detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes. For added peace of mind, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert can help you when backing out of a parking space. It can notify you of vehicles approaching from either side.
Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) helps to increase driver confidence when ascending hills. While stopped on an incline, conventional vehicles may roll back once you step off the brake. HAC helps maintain the vehicle position by applying the brakes to all four wheels until the vehicle begins moving forward.
Available Intuitive Parking Assist uses sensors integrated into the front and rear bumpers to help with routine tasks like parallel parking. Audible tones and an indicator on the multimedia display can notify you of a detected object's location and proximity.
Active front headrests reduce the space between the occupant's head and headrest. They can limit excessive head movement and help to decrease the severity of whiplash-type injuries.
