If you are a car enthusiast then you know what type of wait I’m talking about. If you don’t then let me introduce you to the auto-world. Introducing the all-new 2018 Lexus GX to the ever-expanding Lexus family. Lexus will get a thumbs up for their traditional design of the SUV with its appealing look. Apart from that there has been minor changes done to their exterior but maintained a powerful and a fuel economic engine. It is also comfortable and reliable with fantastic off-road performance. Truly it presents a split identity portraying a rich housing.
2018 Lexus GX – Under the Hood
The 2018 Lexus GX comes with a 4.6-liter V8 engine. This beast is capable of up to 300 horsepower and 330 lb-ft worth of torque. With that much power, I’m pretty impressed with its acceleration. It can leap from 0-60 mph in 7.5 seconds. Of course for the speed, we need brakes that are on point so it comes with a mild set of brakes. The engine is a 6-speed programmed transmission system which will go a long way in fuel consumption. Another awesome feature is the crawl control system that controls the energy the car uses in extremely tough landscapes not forgetting the four-wheel drive that comes into action in these tough terrains. It is also fueled conscious considering 15/20/17 mpg.
2018 Lexus GX – Redesign Interior and Exterior
The interior is quite bold with comfortable leather seats. As you would expect the 2018 Lexus GX has flashes of luxury with some wooden accents on the dashboard, the steering wheel, and the door panels. It’s entertainment system is also top of the range with a package that includes high-definition touch screen display that is located at the center. The screen outputs 3D navigation. In addition, the sound engineers made sure that the Mark Levinson loudspeaker with the power rating of 330-watts provides the perfect surround sound. And these guys don’t stop there, there is an entertainment system at the rear seat that contains dual DVD screens. It also comes packed with parking sensors traction and airbags for every passenger.
The car has 8-way power adjustable front seats, the second row has folding seats all of which provide its passengers with ample legroom for the grown-ups. The 3rd column is left for the kids. This flexibility can really come in handy especially if you have some extra luggage that you need to fit in the trunk.
The exterior has not changed significantly however, it still commands respect wherever it shows up. The front has some modern and classy LED headlamps. The fog lights complete this amazing picture. Also, this SUV comes with a roof-mounted spoiler just above the rear and speaking of the rear, the taillights have been oriented vertically with some angle.
