Lexus teases next-generation GX SUV
For the first time in over a decade, Lexus will launch a new posher twin of the Land Cruiser Prado.
The Japanese luxury manufacturer has teased the upcoming all-new GX SUV. So far, Lexus only revealed two images, but it's enough to give hints that the GX will have a beefier look with more chiseled lines.
Other details of the all-new GX have not been revealed yet, and what will be interesting is which platform will the GX use. For now, the SUV is unlikely to have a unibody structure as Lexus already teased the upcoming TX crossover SUV.
This means Lexus is likely to continue offering the all-new GX in a body-on-frame setup. Currently, the TNGA-F platform is used by full-size SUVs and pick-up trucks in the Toyota / Lexus lineup. If the GX utilizes that platform, then we're likely to see the GX become a much bigger SUV.
Moreover, since Toyota CEO Koji Sato said the Lexus brand will lead the auto giant's electrification plans, the all-new GX SUV may even come with a new hybrid powertrain.
Of course, all these speculations will be put to rest once the all-new GX arrives in 2024.
