The 2013 Lexus LX
Introducing the eight-passenger LX. Offering the capability and confidence to deftly go where most vehicles dare not tread, a spacious cabin filled with refinement, and new technology that offers the power and convenience of your favorite mobile apps, this is the driving experience taken to new heights.
POWER TO EMPOWER
Don’t let its luxurious features fool you. This is an SUV that’s up to nearly any challenge. It combines the brute strength of a massive V8 with the grace of a six-speed sequential-shift transmission. And, to help you get away from it all even faster, it offers a 0-to-60 time that’s comparable to vehicles half its size.
An innovative Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence system monitors the engine’s speed and load, increasing torque at lower speeds for improved towing power, and boosts performance at higher speeds by adjusting intake and exhaust valve timing.
AI SHIFT CONTROL
By monitoring the throttle and vehicle speed, AI (Artificial Intelligence) Shift Control can estimate whether you are traveling uphill or downhill and automatically select the appropriate gear ratio for optimal engine response.
SIX-SPEED SEQUENTIAL SHIFT TRANSMISSION
Featuring six forward gears, the wider gear-ratio spread of the LX transmission provides greater acceleration, efficiency and seamless shifting. Craving an even more engaging driving experience? A sequential-shift feature allows you to select gears manually.
Mother Nature has met her match. The full-time 4WD system on the LX features a TORSEN® torque-sensing limited-slip center differential that efficiently distributes engine power between the front and rear axles, helping to minimize tire spin in slippery conditions. And, for maximum traction in off-road situations, the differential can be locked.
14-WAY POWER FRONT SEAT
For personalized comfort, the driver’s power seat features heating and available ventilation and offers 14 types of adjustment, including dual-function lumbar and seat cushion extension.
POWER REAR DOOR
Among its many accommodating features, the power rear door’s clamshell design makes loading cargo more convenient. The lower tailgate also can be manually raised and lowered, aiding cargo access.
While an ordinary crash-test dummy can provide 119 data points, Lexus uses digital models comprised of millions. A result of innovative approaches to safety like this: The LX is equipped with a class-leading 10-airbag system, Whiplash Injury-Lessening front seats and an available Pre-Collision System that can help provide added braking force to reduce impact speed.
