FULL-TIME FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE WITH ACTIVE TRACTION CONTROL

The TORSEN® torque-sensing limited-slip center differential* with electronic differential lock efficiently distributes engine power between the front and rear axles, optimizing traction in all conditions. Four-wheel Active Traction Control helps keep you securely on the road by using sensors on all four driving wheels to detect the onset of wheel slippage and automatically apply the brake to the slipping wheel. In addition, power is automatically shifted to the wheels with the most traction.

Standard On: GX 460 PREMIUM, GX 460, GX 460 LUXURY

LANE DEPARTURE ALERT*

INTUITIVE PARKING ASSIST*
