If you ever find yourself wondering why so many people buy luxury SUVs, look no further than the Lexus GX. It delivers excellent passenger and cargo room, strong off-road performance, advanced technologies and, like all Lexus vehicles, industry-leading safety and reliability.
Despite its modern touches and technologies, the 2019 Lexus GX remains an old-school SUV with a blocky shape and rugged looks that make its off-roading aspirations clear with just a single look. The interior, on the other hand, is almost the opposite. Comfort and ergonomics are prioritized above all, and the fit-and-finish is nothing short of astounding. Front seat comfort is among the best there is, though it gets progressively more cramped the further back you go. On top trims, real leather and mahogany make for a splendidly inviting interior, though even on the base GX model you still get synthetic leather upholstery and genuine wood trim.
The 2019 Lexus GX comes standard with an impressive number of advanced technologies, including dual-zone climate control, 10-way power front seats, Siri Eyes Free® compatibility, dual USB inputs for easier smartphone connectivity and an 8-inch touch screen with Bluetooth® technology. There are many options to choose from to build upon this. The 17-speaker Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound system and dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system, for example, are just some of the more notable available features.
When it comes to safety, the Lexus GX makes no compromises. A pre-collision system monitors your attention, a cruise control system maintains your speed to the cars ahead and an intuitive parking assistance system helps with parallel parking.
Every 2019 Lexus GX produces 301 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque, courtesy of a reliable 4.6-liter V8 and a six-speed automatic transmission. Power is sent to all four wheels via a full-time four-wheel-drive system, complete with two-speed transfer case and center locking differential for exceptional traction in low-grip conditions. This hurts fuel economy, but if you need an SUV that can tow up to 6,500 pounds, crawl over small boulders, shrug off mud and ford small streams, that’s just the necessary sacrifice.
Though “Sport” is in the acronym, most SUVs are somewhat lackluster in the performance department. The Lexus GX defies this pattern with incredible capability matched by its advanced technologies and truly exquisite craftsmanship.This article is presented by Lexus of Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada.
