The 4.7-liter 2UZ-FE V8 gasoline engine featured the intake VVT-i system, increasing the output by 39 kW (53 PS). The world's first "crawl control" feature was standard-equipped to automatically maintain a very low speed when driving on surfaces such as rocks or sand and on steep hills. A newly developed Torsen LSD transfer unit also came standard on all models, which could instantly change drive power distribution to match road conditions to deliver smooth and stable driving performance. The 200 Series was marketed in more than 100 countries as a high-end sport utility vehicle (SUV). In the North American market, the vehicle was fitted with a 5.7-liter gasoline engine and was offered as the third-generation Lexus LX, the top-of-the-line SUV model for the brand.
