The new Lexus GX sticks to its square looks

  • The new model will have this unique taillight treatment.

  • No one knows which drivetrain will find its way under the hood of the new GX.

  • The full reveal will be on June 8.


 

The manufacturer has just published a new teaser photo before the complete reveal of its new 2024 GX SUV. After the first photo showing the headlight and a portion of that new muscular hood, the brand’s strategists have released this new shot that focuses on the rear of the luxury 4×4.

Once again, the “unique taillight treatment” formula applies to the SUV, as the brand’s design department has been applying this approach to almost all its vehicles for some time now. You can also see that thin piece of black plastic that gives the impression of a “floating roof” on the D-pillar.

The mystery remains on what to expect from the interior and especially on the engine planned for this vehicle which has always been powered by a V8 engine. All bets are off, but with the Lexus LX now powered by a twin-turbocharged V6, it’s safe to assume that the “smaller” GX will be equipped with the same powertrain that was just announced for the Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.

In the Japanese pickup, the new 2.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine teams up with a second electric motor and a battery pack to produce a whopping 326 horsepower and 465 ft-lb of torque. The engine is also mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

In short, with the proliferation of electrified versions in the Toyota and Lexus lineups, the new GX should, in theory, have this option under its hood. If that’s the case, the next Toyota 4Runner could also be equipped with this 4-cylinder engine and even the hybrid version.

What is clear at this time is that the new 2024 Lexus GX will be unveiled on June 8 at 8:00 p.m. (Eastern time).
