The Lexus Safety System+ is now standard across the 2020 GX lineup.

An all-new package for off-roading is available on the Luxury trim level, named Off-Road Package to bring the point home.

Lexus has revealed the refreshed 2020 GX 460, updating the SUV with more safety tech, an off-road package, and a few styling tweaks. Flanking it are the new triple-beam LED headlights, standard across the range.

The three-row seven-seater SUV can be had with a Sport Design Package that adds on an unique lower grille surround, rear valence, side mirrors, matte black exhaust tip, scarlet taillamps and 19-inch alloys with a Gunmetal Metallic finish.

The engine is connected to a full-time four-wheel drive system with a Torsen limited-slip centre differential, which under normal conditions distributes torque 40:60 front-to-rear.

The latter allows you to choose from multiple surfaces such as loose rocks, mud and sand and more to optimise drivability.

So, there's the Lexus Multi-Terrain Monitor and Panoramic View Monitors - which can show views from the front, rear, sides, and even underneath the auto - along with a transmission cooler and fuel tank protector. On the multimedia front, the customizable touchscreen can display three sections simultaneously while rear passengers are treated to USB ports. It automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five driver-selectable low-speed settings, so drivers can focus on steering.

The 4.6-litre V8 is the only engine available; it makes 301 horsepower and 329 lb. -ft. of torque, and is good for 6,500 pounds of towing capacity. There's also a low range option, and drivers can lock the center diff. It includes collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, as well as adaptive cruise control, lane departure and blind spot warning, and intelligent LED headlights.

Otherwise, it's the same Lexus GX as usual.
