ALL-NEW LEXUS GX MAKES WORLD PREMIERE
Lexus continues to introduce pioneering driving and technology advances to its diverse portfolio of luxury vehicles with the reveal of the new-generation GX premium off-road SUV. Sparking the spirit of outdoor adventure, the all-new seven-seat GX is positioned between the RX and LX in the Lexus SUV line-up and offers a broad mix of performance and occupant carrying flexibility.
Lexus Australia will give customers the opportunity to load up and hit the trails in style when it introduces the seven-seat GX off-road SUV to the local market in the first half of 2024.
From the front, a subtle, frameless iteration of the signature Lexus spindle body is expressed, with a black grille and an upturned lower bumper section. The LED head lamp design closely resembles its larger LX sibling, framed by L-shaped daytime running lights. Below the headlamps sit grille openings extending downwards to accommodate the sub-radiator required for improved cooling.
A single LED light strip runs across the width of the tailgate, accompanied by ‘LEXUS’ lettering and compact combination tail lamps. The tailgate also features an opening for the upper glass compartment, allowing easy access to the cargo area.
ROOM TO MOVE
The GX features flexible seating arrangements with seven seats available across three rows, with the second row able to be configured as a trio of bench seats or individual captain's chairs.
TECHNOLOGY THAT EXCITES
The GX interior offers a modern and comfortable cabin based on the Lexus Tazuna concept of human-centred design; with steering wheel switches seamlessly paired with the head-up display, and a clean, horizontal/vertical dashboard layout enhancing the driver’s perception of vehicle posture off road.
The 14-inch centre display uses a combination of touchscreen and buttons for the multimedia system, with particular emphasis given to the size, shape, layout and display information of the switches for an intuitive user experience.
The GX’s centre console is designed with off-roading in mind, with driving and drivetrain switches placed on the driver’s side.
The all-new GX is underpinned by the same GA-F ladder-frame architecture underpinning the larger LX; providing rugged strength, improved on-and off-road driving and compatibility with the latest safety and off-road technologies.
Full-time all-wheel drive, a centre-locking differential and low-range transfer case further improve the driving experience on and off-road, with towing functionality to support active lifestyles.
The GX will be offered initially with a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
ACTIVE SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES
A full suite of Lexus Safety System + active safety technologies is included on the GX, which can help provide maximum protection for occupants and other road users.
