Lexus GX 2024 teased, coming soon

Lexus provided the first look at its redesigned 2024 GX on Thursday and confirmed that the rugged midsize SUV will arrive soon.

Toyota launched a redesigned Land Cruiser in 2021, and although the nameplate is no longer offered in the United States, the redesigned full-size SUV spawned a Lexus LX twin that arrived here for the 2022 model year.

Soon the Land Cruiser will spawn a smaller sibling known as the Land Cruiser Prado, and as has been the case with previous generations, the new Prado will most likely become the corporate twin of the new GX.

Teaser photos reveal few details, although the headlight design and heavily sculpted hood are similar to what’s found on the larger LX. The design also exudes Range Rover vibes.

The current GX, known as the GX 460, has been on sale since model year 2010 and is therefore long overdue for a redesign. According to recent brand activity, the new GX will be known as the GX 550.

Not much is known about the SUV, other than it likely rides Toyota’s TNGA-F body-on-chassis platform shared with Land Cruiser and LX twins, as well as Toyota’s Tundra pickup. Toyota and the associated Sequoia SUV. A shortened TNGA-F platform is also for the redesigned 2024 Toyota Tacoma, and likely a related 4Runner SUV.

The likely US-spec GX powertrain is a detuned version of the 409-hp 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 found in the LX. A hybrid option may also be available at some point, while in other markets Lexus may offer a diesel option. The current GX 460 uses an outdated 4.6-liter V-8 that produces a 301 hp V-6.

While the new GX will almost certainly feature third-row seating, Lexus will offer an alternative three-row midsize SUV in the form of the new 2024 TX. The TX will be a corporate twin of the recently unveiled 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander, and the two SUVs will share a factory in Princeton, Indiana.
