How Much Can the 2023 Lexus GX Tow?

The 2023 Lexus GX is a highly capable body-on-frame luxury SUV that’s just as comfortable driving on off-road trails as it is on Calgary’s busy downtown streets. Recently refreshed with an updated front fascia, revised interior layout, and updated vehicle technology, the 2023 Lexus GX is set to compete in the modern age of midsize luxury SUVs. As one of the few remaining body-on-frame SUVs on the market, the Lexus GX boasts exceptional towing and off-road capabilities that are unmatched by its rivals. Continue reading below as our team at Royal Oak Lexus has compiled the key capability highlights of this exceptional luxury SUV.


Luxurious Towing & Hauling Machine

A true SUV in every sense of the word, the 2023 Lexus GX is every bit a sport utility vehicle as it is a luxurious people mover. With sumptuous genuine leather seating surfaces for up to seven passengers, ample rear cargo storage capacity for all of their gear and a reliable all-wheel drive system, the 2023 Lexus GX is ready to take you on your next adventure in comfort and style. Rated for a maximum towing capacity of 2,950 kgs or 6,500 lbs and a maximum payload capacity of 640 kgs or 1411 lbs, the 2023 Lexus GX can comfortably haul whatever weekend toy you may have. Whether it’s a medium sized boat, a set of jet skis or a camper trailer for an outdoor family adventure in the woods, you can trust that the Lexus GX will get you and your trailer anywhere you need to go.

Tried & True Engine

An absolute workhorse of an engine, all 2023 Lexus GX models are powered by a 4.6L naturally aspirated V8 engine with Intelligent Variable Valve Timing (VVT-i). Exclusively mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain generates 301 horsepower at 5,500 RPM and 329 lb-ft of torque at a low 3,500 RPM. This powerful V8 engine has been the powertrain of choice for the Lexus GX for several generations, undergoing a handful of engineering updates along the way, further enhancing its refinement and reliability.


Body-On-Frame Architecture

Built on a traditional body-on-frame platform, the 2023 Lexus GX is not only stylish and luxurious, it is also a highly capable off-roading machine. On rough terrain, the vehicle’s frame isolates the cabin and gracefully absorbs any shocks and vibrations, thanks to its kinetic dynamic suspension system and double wishbone front suspension. It also makes a significant contribution to the GX's ultra-smooth on-road performance and exceptionally serene interior.
