There’s a fresh presence in the world of luxury SUVs — the 2024 Lexus GX. An invigorating blend of refinement and robust capability, the three-row utility vehicle is a boundless ticket to travel. For urban explorers and nature-lovers alike, the GX is meticulously engineered to elevate driving experiences, no matter where the road leads.
Here are five essential aspects that make the 2024 Lexus GX stand out:
Adventuring With Overtrail
With the announcement of the all-new Lexus GX comes the first-ever Overtrail grade, a game changer for the adventurous-minded. It offers a suite of standard off-road features, including Multi-Terrain Select (MTS), which can help to control the throttle and traction, and Crawl Control, which uses sensors to help adjust acceleration and braking on challenging terrains. Overtrail grades also offer Multi-Terrain Monitor that displays front, side, and rear camera views with just the touch of a button to assist in offroad visibility.
Its thoughtful design also offers a skid plate and an integrated roof rack for those who want to accessorize their new GX.
Bold Exterior Design
Merging functional aesthetics and a distinctive look, the Lexus GX captures the spirit of both urban sophistication and outdoor exploration in one vehicle. Its striking and contemporary exterior exudes a feeling of harmonious balance between the rugged and the refined.
The all-new GX introduces a powerful front presence, led by a unified spindle grille while maintaining the brand’s recognizable design, accented by triple-beam LED headlamps. With its aerodynamic lines, chrome accents and premium paint finishes — which include the stunning two-tone options for the Overtrail grade — the GX never goes unnoticed thanks to Lexus’ meticulous attention to exterior details.
Power and Precision
Under the hood, the 2024 Lexus GX will offer two powertrain options. At launch in the United States, its standard 3.4-liter twin-turbo V6 engine delivers 349 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft. of torque, offering exhilarating performance whether on busy city streets or isolated mountain passes. In addition, the increased power improves towing capacity from previous models to up to 8,000 pounds for Premium, Premium+ and Overtrail grades. The hybrid powertrain option will be available in the U.S. at a later date.
A Moving Sanctuary
Step inside the GX and be welcomed by a haven of tranquility, where traditional craftsmanship meets modern innovation. An intuitive infotainment system, centered on the standard 14-inch multimedia touchscreen display with Lexus Interface technology, provides connectivity on the go. The 2024 GX also comes standard with a Wireless Apple CarPlay® Integration and Android Auto® compatibility.
Offering seating for up to seven, the all-new GX provides comfort and convenience, featuring improved ergonomic seating and two unique configurations for the second row. With the GX’s six illuminated charging ports (four in Overtrail), a wireless charger and a 120V AC inverter, both driver and passengers can take advantage of a tech-forward experience. Each row also features its own storage spaces, and enhanced luggage capacity.
The cabin is further elevated with an available premium Mark Levinson® audio system, ambient lighting, and plush leather seats — all contributing to what amounts to no less than a moving sanctuary, whether drivers are navigating rush hour or venturing to a secluded beach.
Safety Comes Standard
Safety is an integral part of the 2024 Lexus GX experience. With that in mind, each GX grade comes standard with the Lexus Safety System+ 3.0, a suite of advanced active safety technologies that work as one to help drivers navigate roads with confidence.
Key features include the Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA), and All-speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC).
Lexus has built its reputation on delivering anticipatory hospitality, comfort, quality, and innovative technology. Exquisitely weaving sophistication, adventure, power, and safety into one vehicle, the all-new 2024 Lexus GX is no exception. Regardless of lifestyle, drivers and passengers can enjoy the perfect blend of luxury and capability with the all-new Lexus GX.
