Trims and Powertrain
The 2021 Lexus GX is a plush full-sized SUV sold in three trim levels: the base GX, Premium, and Luxury. Each gets its power from a robust 4.6-liter V8 engine making 301 hp and 329 lb.-ft. of torque; the transmission is a six-speed automatic and four-wheel drive is standard. As mentioned above, the ’21 GX’s maximum towing capacity is 6,500 pounds.
The base is provided with an array of great features, highlighted by triple-beam LED headlights, a moonroof, heated side mirrors, Lexus’ class-exclusive Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System for greater off-road performance, keyless entry, push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, simulated-leather upholstery, power-adjustable (10-way) front seats, a 40/20/40-split second-row seatback, 50/50 fold-flat third-row seats, and a rearview camera.
The Premium is outfitted with LED fog lights, rain-sensing wipers, a windshield wiper de-icer, Lexus’ Enform App Suite, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated second-row seats.
