Toyota Teases a 2024 Lexus GX

After nearly a decade and a half with few changes, it appears the Lexus GX is finally getting a long-awaited overhaul. The current model has been in production since 2010, making it nearly 15 years old.

The latest teasers offer glimpses of the upcoming SUV, including its front, which features a hood with hefty, sculpted bulges on each side, wrapping over the edges and covering the tops of the fenders. This design gives it a rugged, tank-like appearance. The headlights are now horizontally oriented, lending a more aggressive look.


The back shot of the GX shows a new Lexus word mark atop a full-width taillight, different from the simple, separate vertical lights found on the present model. Although the teaser shows little, a small tab on the rear window indicates that it will still be possible to open it separately from the tailgate.

It remains unclear whether the tailgate will open from the side or if it will have a top-hinged hatch. The current side-hinged tailgate design originated from the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, which shares a platform with the GX. However, the GX has not had a spare tire on the outside for some time.

The new GX is expected to remain closely related to the Land Cruiser Prado and share its body-on-frame design with a more traditional four-wheel-drive system, featuring a two-speed transfer case.

Toyota may release a new Prado and 4Runner soon, based on the platform similarities between the vehicles. While the current GX boasts a V8, the new model is unlikely to have one, instead opting for a turbocharged V6 or possibly a hybrid engine.

Toyota has yet to announce a specific release date, but the GX is expected to debut in the next few months and go on sale at the end of this year or early next year.
