Safety

There were plenty of safety features in the Lexus GX, but they weren't exactly cutting-edge. Newer safety features like a blind spot warning system and a radar-based collision preparation system haven't made their way to the GX.

What you do get is airbags, including front- and side-impact airbags, and side curtain airbags for the first and second rows but not the third row. It also had antilock brakes, stability control, traction control and emergency brake assist that senses panic braking and helps stop the SUV.

The seat belts in the GX fit well and were easy to manage, even for little fingers. The center seat belt comes out of the top of the seat, so it won't impede your visibility. The Latch connectors are clearly marked and easily accessed; a Velcro flap keeps them covered when they're not in use. An available tracker system helps police recover the GX if it should be stolen.
