Lexus GX I have a 2017 GX460. I feel we need a bigger Engine or more Horse Powers. ?

Welcome to Lexus Enthusiast, Sprat :)

One must remember that the GX, a body-on-frame/truck-derived SUV, shares its platform with the Toyota 4Runner and Prado, and is not designed for the same purpose, or the same driving conditions, as a BMW X5.

In the Lexus family, a somewhat closer comparison to the BMW X5, platform/chassis-wise, would probably be the RX350 F-Sport....though the X5, at 445 HP, definitely has a stronger top-level power plant.

Hi
Thanks. I am aware of the differences re purpose and body/frame, but I did not realize this may be a reason for the limited HPs.
I looked at LX and Escalade which are also of the same design. Thanks.
