Lexus GX 2024: Australian lineup introduced for luxury off-roader


The Japanese luxury automaker has confirmed standard specification for its upcoming GX, but no prices… yet

Lexus Australia has confirmed the Australian lineup for its new GX SUV, a model that will also be the basis for the upcoming, next-gen Toyota Land Cruiser Prado

It’ll be the first time that the GX has been made available in Australia, offering both five- and seven-seat layouts with three grades to choose from. 

The GX in Australia will include the GX 550 Luxury, the GX Sports Luxury and the GX 550 Overtrail flagship.

Power will come from a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V6 engine that produces 260kW/650Nm and will be available in all grades. This engine is paired in the GX with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Based on the GA-F ladder frame architecture, the GX’s all-terrain credentials are anchored by full-time all-wheel drive, a centre locking differential and a low-range transfer case.  

The Japanese luxury arm has said that the GX is due in Australia around the middle of 2024, with local pricing yet to be announced.
