ALL-NEW LEXUS GX BRINGS RUGGED REFINEMENT AND FLEXIBLE SEVEN-SEAT LUXURY TO AUSTRALIA
The GX will be offered initially with a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain is best suited to the GX producing acceptable towing performance and all-terrain driving in all weather conditions.2
Inside, the GX blends luxury and functionality with a 14-inch touchscreen multimedia system supporting the latest connectivity features and offering an intuitive user experience thanks to the layout and positioning of the switches and functions.3
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.
Customers looking to take their adventurous lifestyle to the next level may opt for the new Overtrail model grade, which further enhances the GX's off-road credentials with a range of features that give the new SUV peerless capability off the beaten path.
Available exclusively in five-seat guise, the Overtrail uses the E-KDSS suspension system to improve wheel articulation and ground contact when traversing tricky terrain; while the Multi-Terrain Select system offers six off-road drive modes (Auto, Dirt, Sand, Mud, Deep Snow and Rock) allowing drivers to maximise traction and performance on a wide range of surfaces.
A full suite of Lexus Safety System +4 active safety technologies will be offered on the GX, paired with Lexus Connected Services5 functionality for a comprehensive owner safety and security package.
The GX announcement comes just weeks after Lexus confirmed the stunning LM luxury people-mover for Australia. The LM reimagines the concept of luxury chauffeur-driven mobility with supreme levels of passenger seat comfort and amenity normally associated with First and Business class aircraft travel.
Details on the Australian GX range including pricing and specification will be announced closer to its launch in the first half of 2024.
