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.
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. Available 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.
Available second-row captain's chairs enhance passenger accommodations to provide a first-class experience. This seating arrangement provides each second-row passenger with individual heated seats.
Customize how you load and store cargo with fold-flat 50/50-split third-row seats.
A reclining, sliding, 60/40-split second-row seat features a 40/20/40-split seatback to accommodate various kinds of cargo, while the passenger-side section tilts and slides forward to allow easy access to the third row.
In warmer weather, front-seat passengers can select from three settings to have fans inside the seatbacks and cushions circulate air through perforations in the leather trim. On cold days, the front seatbacks and lower seat cushions can be heated to one of three levels. The second-row outboard rear seats can also be heated.
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 front-passenger seat is designed to detect whether the seat is occupied by an adult or 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.
To help you change lanes with confidence, the available Blind Spot Monitor is designed to detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes. And for added peace of mind, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert can help you when backing out of a parking space by notifying you of vehicles approaching from either side.
This available system utilizes a high-resolution camera to monitor visible lane markings and determine the vehicle's position within a lane. If an inadvertent lane departure, or potential departure due to swaying, is detected at speeds above 32 mph, the system attempts to alert the driver with audible and visual warnings and steering-wheel vibrations.
This available system is engineered to detect vehicles or pedestrians in the path of your Lexus under certain conditions. Should the system detect a pedestrian or determine a frontal collision is imminent, it's designed to activate an audible and visual alert while automatically preparing Brake Assist for increased braking response. If the driver does not brake in time, the system is designed to automatically begin braking before impact and, in some cases, can even brake the vehicle to a stop.
