Lexus GX 470 details:

The Lexus GX 470 is powered by a 4. 7-liter V8 motor that produces 263 horsepower and 323 lb-ft. of peak torque. Equipped with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (vvt-i), the V8 offers ample torque across a wide speed range, helping make the Lexus GX 470 feel responsive in everyday driving and giving it impressive towing performance. The Lexus GX 470 meets Ultra Low Emissions Car II (ULEV-II) certification.

The Lexus GX 470's five-speed automatic transmission offers seamless shift class. Shift logic can hold gears on inclines for performance and on descents for increased motor braking, which can be helpful when towing, i.e.. The Lexus GX 470's sophisticated full-time four-wheel-drive system, supported by an array of dynamic handling technology, offers versatile capability for virtually any driving need.

A TORSEN torque-sensing center differential distributes performance 40:60 under most driving conditions and changes the ratio as needed based on steering input and wheel slip. The ability to change to a 29:71 ratio during steering maneuvers helps to improve car tracking via curves. If the back wheels spin, the center differential can change the ratio to 53:47 to help control the slippage. The TORSEN center differential also helps make the Lexus GX 470 less prone to slippage caused by sudden changes in road-surface conditions, such as driving via a puddle or over an ice patch.
