2024 Lexus GX Teased with Boxy, Burly Styling before June 8 Debut
These are our first glimpses at the 2024 Lexus GX, which will be the next generation of the brand's off-road specialist.
The images show a brutalist design with lots of sharp creases and hard angles and appear to follow a similar formula to the new-for-2023 Toyota Sequoia.
The GX is expected to share its platform with the Sequoia and Tundra pickup truck and use the same hybrid V-6 powertrain.
UPDATE 6/6/23: Lexus has revealed a final teaser showing the best look yet at the new 2024 GX. Tall, boxy, and rugged-looking, the new SUV is pictured splashing through the mud, suggesting that Lexus will play up the off-road angle even further with this new generation of its body-on-frame mid-sizer. We'll learn more later this week as Lexus reveals the official info.
UPDATE 5/25/23: Lexus released an even more revealing teaser photo showing the 2024 GX SUV's rear end, including a full-width LED taillight, a squared-off D-pillar, and a broad-shouldered stance. The new model will debut June 8 at 8 p.m. Eastern time and we're looking forward to finding out what's in store for this redesigned mid-size luxury sport-ute.
At long last, an all-new Lexus GX is on the way. The Japanese luxury brand teased the 2024 GX for the first time today, and the redesign will mark the first major update for the full-size SUV since the current generation debuted for the 2010 model year. Despite a couple of facelifts over the past decade, the GX has grown stale, and the teaser images hint that the 2024 Lexus GX will sport a sharp new design that will bring the SUV into the 2020s.
The two teaser photos show off the GX's lighting, with the headlights taking on a pointy, angular look. They sit beneath a brawny, sculpted hood that is complemented by a muscular-looking wheel arch. Around back we see the GX will wear a trendy full-width taillight with integrated "Lexus" badging. The traditional Lexus spindle grille shape looks like it remains, and the whole design ethos is reminiscent of the latest Toyota Sequoia.
Lexus provided zero information alongside the images, simply stating the new SUV is "coming soon." The GX is expected to use the same TNGA-F platform that underpins the Tundra and Sequoia as well as the Lexus LX and not-for-the-U.S. Toyota Land Cruiser.
Like the Tundra and Sequoia, the GX will likely ditch the V-8 engine in favor of a twin-turbo V-6, which may be the hybridized i-Force Max setup found in both of its platform-mates. Even if the 2024 GX downsizes on the engine front, it should retain its body-on-frame construction and serious off-road chops.
