The Lexus GX is a 3-row, 7-seat SUV designed for families. This powerful SUV has a standard 4.6L V8 engine that offers 301 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque. This all adds up to a maximum towing capacity of 6,500 pounds when properly equipped.
Inside, you’ll find 11.6 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear, 46.7 cubic feet with the rear row folded down, and a full 64.7 cubic feet with all seats folded down. All this space and capability is great for even the most ambitious of camping trips.
The Lexus LX is a master class in versatility. If you go with the standard trim, you’ll have five seats. Decide on the LX Premium, the LX F Sport Handling, or the LX Luxury, and you’ll have seven seats; and the LX Ultra Luxury offers four seats. To power this SUV, you’ll have a 3.5L twin-turbo V6 engine producing 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque.
To add to all this, it has a maximum available towing capacity of 8,000 pounds when properly equipped. Bring along your recreational vehicle for a weekend of premium glamping.
If you like having options for power, then consider going with the Lexus NX, which comes either with a standard internal combustion engine or a hybrid engine, or as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. The internal combustion engines come in two varieties: the 2.5L in-line 4-cylinder that offers 203 horsepower, and a 2.4L turbo in-line 4-cylinder that offers 275 horsepower.
A hybrid vehicle is designed to amplify an internal combustion engine with an extra electric motor. The Lexus NX Hybrid offers a 2.5L in-line 4-cylinder engine with Lexus Hybrid Electric Drive with 240 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 41 city/37 highway MPG.
A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) uses a small internal combustion engine to amplify the more powerful electric motor. The Lexus NX PHEV is equipped with a 2.5L in-line 4-cylinder engine with Lexus Plug-in Hybrid Electric Drive that offers 304 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 84 MPGe—the electric MPG equivalent.
The Lexus RX comes in both a standard 2-row, 5-seat model, and the L models, which are 3-row, 7-seat models. Both models share the same engine, offering a slight difference in power. The 3.5L V6 engine offers 295 horsepower in the 2-row model and 290 horsepower on the 3-row models.
The Lexus RX 450h AWD hybrid model offers the same 3.5L V6 engine with the addition of an electric motor, which offers a full net combined 308 horsepower.
The Lexus UX offers four trims: the 250h, the 250h Premium, the 250h F SPORT Design, and the 250h F SPORT Handling. With a 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder engine with Lexus Hybrid Drive engine, you’ll get a total system horsepower of 181 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 43 city/41 highway MPG.
