Lexus GX 2024: everything you need to know about the luxury Prado


To stay on top of all the Lexus GX updates, Chasing Cars will keep this article updated with every drop of information

Just like the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 and the Lexus LX, the next-generation Lexus GX is set to be the SUV sibling of the much anticipated next-generation Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.

With a ladder chassis, seven seats, and Lexus luxury, this upcoming GX would be a great fit for the Australian market and while nothing has yet been confirmed, there is a strong possibility that it could be sold locally in the next generation.

18 May 2023: GX gets local CEO’s nod

The likelihood of Lexus’ next-generation GX landing in Australia seems to be increasing with CEO John Pappas expressing interest in the SUV. 

Though Pappas had “nothing to confirm” regarding the seven-seat SUV when questioned about it by Chasing Cars, he did agree that it would be a good fit in the local market.

“Yeah, it’s a great looking car. And yeah, [it’d] do really well,” he said. 

If the Lexus GX was to go on sale locally, it’s likely that it would face competition from the likes of the Audi Q7, Volvo XC90 and Volkswagen Touareg

As always, Lexus Australia would need to jump through the required hoops to get the GX on sale locally, and Pappas was forthcoming in describing what the process looks like. 

“So Lexus international might have this available, and whether it’s TX [or] GX, whatever they are.

“And then each market needs to justify [the model] and make sure that it makes sense within their own roadmap and their market requirements,” he added. 

Pappas’ comments on the GX comes less than a month after Lexus gave the world its first glimpse of the next-generation SUV

Though details regarding the next-generation GX’s powertrain are yet to be unveiled, it’s likely that a hybrid system will be offered, as previously speculated by Chasing Cars

The potential options on the table here include a 2.4-litre turbo four-cylinder hybrid shared with the Lexus RX500h, or a larger 3.4-litre turbo V6 hybrid sourced from the US-market Toyota Tundra ute.
