Intuitively responsive, the new AVS enables you to customize your desired level of road feel. And thanks to more instantaneous damping force, this system more efficiently responds to changing road surface conditions. This smoother and more precise control results in enhanced ride comfort and improved on-road performance. Ideal composure is maintained throughout the cabin, even reducing rocking of the vehicle when traversing rough terrain.
With an impressive new higher towing capacity of 8,000 lbs and with maximum torque available at low RPM, the LX is primed and ready for even more possibilities. For peace of mind, Trailer Sway Control helps detect and prevent excessive trailer movement, be it from unexpected wind or bumpy roads.
The Torsen® torque-sensing limited-slip center differential efficiently distributes engine power between the front and rear axles, helping to optimize traction in a wide variety of conditions.

An innovative new Multi-Terrain Select system further enhances off-road capability and control over varied landscapes. The operating range of controls has been extended, for use on a wider variety of terrains, from snow-covered roads to intensive off-road driving.
