John Alexander ASKED THE GUIDE

Lexus for towing

I am considering buying a Lexus GS 450H, but I occasionally tow a boat weighing around 1.6 tonnes and have been told that the owner?s manual states clearly that ?Lexus does not recommend that this vehicle be used for towing?. Elsewhere I have seen that a max towing load of two tonnes applies. Can you advise what is the real situation?

Lexus doesn’t have a towing rating for the GS 450H and doesn’t recommend that you tow with it. They would rather see you using an RX SUV hybrid, which has a towing rating of 1600 kg, for your purpose.
