I’ve always called Toyota a methodical giant in the scheme of how they approach updates, redesigns, and implementation of new technology. Such a strategy of slowly rolling out updates has worked well for the Toyota and Lexus brands as they continue to have some of the most reliable vehicles around.
With the recent progression of electrification, it’s satisfying to see Lexus make headway to bring us a new internal combustion engine unibody 3-row luxury crossover, the anticipated TX. Additionally, they look to bring us a redesigned Lexus GX as well, a vehicle that’s been a long-standing design in its current form for over 12 years now.
For some time now, Lexus has teased a new TX, which is said to be based on the new Toyota Grand Highlander. Naturally, the TX will be so much better than the old Lexus RX L as it will be a purposely designed 3-row-seat luxury crossover, instead of an elongated RX.
Today, Lexus teases a redesigned GX, a vehicle that I refer to as being a legacy SUV in that it continues to attract a multitude of buyers despite its old platform. The Lexus GX, realistically, has only received some styling refreshing and few subtle updates in the past 12 years of its current generation’s existence. However, the Lexus GX is past due for an update for it to remain relevant in such a segment, all before manufacturers move more toward the inevitable electrification.
While all the details of a new 2024 Lexus GX are under wraps, we expect to see something fresh using the TNGA-F platform that underpins the new Toyota Sequoia and Lexus LX 600, which signals the GX retaining that rugged body-on-frame construction.
We will be sure to report in the coming weeks or months on the new Lexus GX, as well as bringing you our new car preview of the new Lexus TX when it drops very soon.FOLLOW US TODAY:
