Lexus 2024 GX Previews: This is all we know
Since 2010, there have been no substantial changes to the Lexus GX.
Perhaps Lexus allowed it to remain unchanged due to its relatively slow sales. As the sole rugged off-roader among a brand primarily known for luxurious highway cruisers, the GX has consistently struggled in terms of sales. It stands out as the unconventional member of a wealthy family, and it embraces that identity.
Perhaps Lexus let it remain unchanged because it excels at what it does. According to our expert test driver, “The GX’s trucklike body-on-frame architecture is a significant factor in its impressive off-roading capabilities.” It offers all the expected comforts of a Lexus, but it is built on the frame of the renowned off-roader Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, which is not sold in the United States.
Regardless of the reason, the GX received its last redesign prior to the premiere of “Game of Thrones.” In automotive terms, it is considered a capable older vehicle.
Lexus appears to be taking action to address this now. This week, the company unveiled a teaser photo featuring a muddy headlight along with a concise press release consisting of seven words: “The all-new 2024 Lexus GX, coming soon.”
A second photo depicted a muddy license plate.
It is difficult to gather extensive details from these two tightly focused photos. However, they suggest a boxy and muscular design reminiscent of the recent update to the Toyota Sequoia. Given Lexus’ strong emphasis on hybrid vehicles in its current lineup, it is likely that the new GX will feature the same hybrid powertrain as the aforementioned SUV. This powertrain combines a 3.4-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with an electric motor, resulting in an output of 437 horsepower.
Lexus also provided a teaser for a new 3-row SUV designed for soft-road usage, known as the TX.
If we consider Lexus’ recent practices, it is probable that more teaser photos will be released to hint at what’s to come before official reveal dates are announced.
