2024 Lexus GX introduces the third generation of the SUV to replace the current one that arrived in 2010. The novelty will go on sale in early 2024.
The 2024 GX is based on the body-on-frame GA-F platform. The SUV received a double wishbone front suspension and a multi-link rear suspension. This new model uses electric power steering, which improves handling on-road and off-road. As an option, an adaptive adjustable suspension with active dampers is offered.
At launch, the only available powertrain was the GX 550, powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V6 engine developing 349 hp. paired with 10 automatic transmissions. The standard GX transmission includes permanent all-wheel drive and a Torsen limited-slip lock center differential. The overtrail version also gets a rear differential lock.
The new GX is not like the previous generation. It has an angular body with many hard folds. The Lexus grille is still part of the brand’s style, but the designers have toned it down. The rear is a power hatchback with a separately opening glass and a shock sensor for automatic opening.
The 2024 GX will be available in six trim levels: Premium, Premium+, Luxury, Luxury+, Overtrail and Overtrail+. The last two options are not off-road oriented.
The Overtrail trim will come with black fender inserts and aluminum skid plates. This version uses 18″ wheels with 33″ tires. The list of options includes a descent assist system and a 3D terrain monitor. Electronic Kinetic Dynamic Suspension provides additional wheel articulation for better off-road performance. Overtrail+ gets a special seat with a powerful massage function and cushion.
The cab has a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, while the existing model has analog gauges with a small display in the center. The infotainment screen has grown to 14.0 inches instead of 10.3 inches in the current version. This software supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There are buttons to control the temperature and volume.
The GX will share a frame platform with the Toyota Land Cruiser. This means that they can also share the same motor path. However, this is not yet accurate information. A 2021 report claims that the new GX will feature an electrified engine.
The variety of colors that the new 2024 Lexus GX will offer promises something for every taste. It will be available in eleven exterior colors:
- Eminent White Pearl;
- the Gray Pearl Nebula;
- Atomic Silver;
- Nori Green Pearls;
- Nightfall Mica.
The Overtrail and Overtrail+ trims will be available in a two-tone combination with black roof and body in Atomic Silver, Incognito, Nori Green Pearl or Earth.
