Ken Shaw Lexus in Toronto presents the 2018 Lexus GX:
All Encompassing Luxury, All Terrain Performance.
A true body-on-frame SUV, Lexus GX 460 gives you the freedom to explore most any terrain with standard features including 4-wheel drive and Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, to available features like Crawl Control, and Multi-Terrain Select. Yet, its rugged nature belies an exceptionally luxurious interior — including rich leather and lustrous wood trim, intelligent technologies to keep you safe and connected, and room for seven to relax in style.
Body-On Frame Construction
To give you genuine off-road capability, Lexus GX 460 features body-on-frame construction. The frame isolates the cabin, better absorbs bumps and vibrations, and raises reliability to a higher dimension. It also contributes immeasurably to GX’s smooth ride and extraordinarily peaceful interior.
Now standard, GX’s Sport Design amplifies its commanding presence with a striking front fascia treatment, then adds a dimension of dynamism with front and rear spoilers, stainless steel exhaust tip, uniquely designed rear combination lamps, and gunmetal-tone 18” alloy wheels.
Built In Versatility
The 2018 Lexus GX’s interior is intentionally sturdy in design and then polished to an elegant finish. Strength and prestige are exemplified by an instrument panel seemingly forged from a single block of steel, juxtaposed to the softness of leather and warmth of mahogany wood trim. The 3-zone independent automatic climate control lets driver, front passenger, and rear passengers set their own comfort zones.
GX’s spacious and versatile interior lets you personalize your comfort, and take on the passenger and cargo needs of most any occasion. Cloaked in genuine leather upholstery, each row of seating offers impressive levels of comfort and utility, including 8-way power adjustable front seats — with driver seat memory system — 40:20:40 folding 2nd row seats, and 50:50 flush-with-floor 3rd row seats.
Luxury accommodations for 7 includes genuine leather upholstery, an intricate yet intuitive dashboard and instrumental panel, and ample cargo space for all your off road or city living needs.
302 HP V8 Engine
Wherever the journey takes you, GX 460 is the ideal travelling companion. Its 302 horsepower 4.6 litre V8 delivers powerfully smooth on-road performance. Capable of generating 329 lb. ft. of torque, it is more than capable of carrying you off the beaten path and back again. Advanced features such as Dual VVT-i enhance output while delivering the fuel efficiency of a much smaller displacement engine.
For superior traction — both on- and off-road — Lexus GX’s 4WD System directs power to all four wheels all the time. Should one or more wheels experience slip, GX’s Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) automatically applies brake pressure while simultaneously directing drive force to those wheels with traction to enhance your confidence and capabilities in handling the most challenging conditions.
The 6-speed Super Electronically Controlled Automatic Transmission features shift points optimized for smooth, effortless acceleration and faster shifting response. Outfitted with Gate-Type Shift functionality, GX also lets you experience the joy of a manual shift.
GX lets you indulge your passion for adventure with an array of innovative technologies, including: standard Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System; and available Multi-Terrain Select and Crawl Control (Executive Package).
Jam Packed with Technology
Designed exclusively for the Lexus GX 460 by the sound engineers at Mark Levinson, the 17-speaker, 330-watt, 7.1 channel Surround Sound Audio System is sure to please the most discerning audiophile. Additional infotainment features include Bluetooth® 22 capability, MP3 Connectivity, Steering Wheel Audio Controls, and more.
The voice-activated Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Navigation1 system on the GX 460 features Advanced Voice Recognition and Subscription-based XM® Satellite Radio4. The eight-inch, high-resolution Electro Multi Vision (EMV) screen provides a sharp, colourful display.
An excellent aid, especially when backing up or venturing off-road, the Wide-View Monitoring system — available with GX 460’s Technology and Executive Packages — employs cameras2 strategically located around the vehicle to provide views from the Front, the Rear, the Passenger Side, and, on Executive Package only, the Driver Side of the GX. Images are displayed on the Navigation screen.
For an extra level of confidence and peace of mind, GX 460 features both Hill Start Assist Control (HAC)24 and Downhill Assist Control (DAC)24. On steep inclines, HAC helps prevent GX from rolling backwards when you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator. DAC assists when descending steep and slippery grades by keeping the vehicle at a slow and constant speed.
