2021 Lexus GX Review
The 2021 Lexus GX is an off-road-ready vehicle with a lot of luxury and sophistication. Ideally suited to both city streets and rugged trails, the 2021 Lexus GX goes from workday to weekend with ease.
Drivers in Larchmont, New Rochelle, and Yonkers can learn all about the GX with this in-depth 2021 Lexus GX review from Lexus of Larchmont.
The GX comes with a powerful 4.6-liter V-8 under the hood that produces 301 horsepower. This engine mates to a six-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case for off-roading. With the optional Off-Road package, you’ll gain Crawl Control and other traction control modes to adjust your driving experience according to conditions.
Unlike many of its competitors, the GX favors a separate ladder frame instead of unibody construction, giving it extra composure in off-road environments or while towing. With the refined suspension and sway bar system, the GX stays poised on normal roads and tackles turns with ease. Properly equipped, the GX can tow up to 6,500 pounds of cargo.
The GX seats six or seven passengers comfortably on soft, cushioned seats. You can opt for a three-piece bench or individual captain’s chairs, depending on how many passengers you’ll have regularly. Optional upgrades improve the comfort, such as heated and cooled seats. The third row even offers plenty of space for passengers. Several available interior touches create an elegant cabin space, such as synthetic or soft leather upholstery and real wood trim.
In the cargo bay, the GX has a full 65 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded down. The area is accessed by a curb-side-hinged rear door, making it easy to load and unload your gear.Technology
The GX comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and four USB ports for devices, divided between the seating areas. The optional Lexus Enform communications system, navigation system, and Amazon Alexa integration boost the infotainment system with streaming media, on-the-road communication, and turn-by-turn directions. You could also enhance your listening experience with the available 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system.
Several safety features are included for the base GX, including forward collision mitigation, a feature that applies the brakes in impending-crash scenarios. Lane departure alert, a feature that sends an alert if you drift out of your lane, and adaptive cruise control, a feature that adjusts your cruise speed to maintain your distance from the car ahead, are also standard. A surround-view camera is available to give you a top-down view of your vehicle and its surroundings.
Despite its rugged utility, the 2021 Lexus GX is a remarkable luxury vehicle that combines comfort, convenience, and high-tech features with a powerful engine and off-road enhancements.
