The 4.6-liter V8 engine in the GX delivers an impressive 301 horsepower, while the Variable Valve Timing with intelligence helps to improve low-speed torque and high-speed horsepower. When paired with the six-speed sequential-shift automatic transmission, it provides a smooth ride, effortless acceleration and faster shifting response.
329 lb-ft of torque at low rpm enables the GX to tow up to 6,500 lb. And, for peace of mind, Trailer Sway Control offers an added dose of confidence to your towing adventure as part of the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system. To help reduce sway, braking is applied independently to each wheel and the throttle can be moderated. A flashing indicator alerts the driver when the system is taking corrective measures.
The ingenious Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System is designed to change with the terrain. By automatically fixing the front and rear stabilizer bars in place when on-road, it helps to minimize body lean while cornering. Off-road, it allows each wheel to move more independently, so the wheel on uneven ground can react while the other wheels are relatively unaffected.
With the press of a button, available CRAWL Control carefully manages the throttle and brakes to help you maintain a slow, consistent speed up, down and over rugged terrain. All without your feet ever touching the pedals. Downhill Assist Control works with the Anti-lock Braking System and Active Traction Control to help keep the GX at a slow, constant descent speed. And available Hill-start Assist Control helps increase control during hill climbing, or when stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.

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. Take a look below to learn more about your standard coverage, as well as additional coverage options.
The TORSEN® torque-sensing limited-slip center differential with electronic differential lock efficiently distributes engine power between the front and rear axles, optimizing traction in all conditions. Four-wheel Active Traction Control helps keep you securely on the road by using sensors on all four driving wheels to detect the onset of wheel slippage and automatically apply the brake to the slipping wheel. In addition, power is automatically shifted to the wheels with the most traction.
The front-passenger seat is designed to detect whether the seat is occupied by an adult, a child or is vacant. In case the system detects a child or empty passenger seat, the system prevents the passenger's front, side and knee airbags from being deployed. The front passenger's airbag features two chambers, creating an indentation in the center impact area that helps to provide occupant protection in a severe frontal collision.
When you put the vehicle in reverse, the view from the backup camera is displayed on the multimedia display in full color with dynamic gridlines to assist you with parking and other maneuvers.
At the touch of a button, Downhill Assist Control works with the Anti-lock Braking System and Active Traction Control to help keep the vehicle at a slow, constant descent speed and prevent the wheels from locking up. Virtually all the driver needs to do is watch the road and steer.
