Rides on a TNGA-F platform shared with the Lexus LX 600 with seating for up to seven.

2024 Lexus GX: What’s New?
The 2024 GX is fresh as a daisy and ready to rumble. Lexus was kind enough to reveal most of the juicy details concerning the all-new GX earlier in 2023, including its standard turbocharged V6 engine, seven-seat capacity, and the trail-ready Overland trim.
Devoid of conventional Lexus styling cues (aka the love-it or hate-it spindle front grille), the third-generation GX is the ideal steed to take Lexus’ well-heeled clients beyond the concrete jungle. It has a traditional body-on-frame architecture (no crossover genes here) shared with the Lexus LX and Toyota Land Cruiser, but the styling is a bold direction for the Lexus brand.
The all-new Lexus GX is a two or three-row SUV with five or seven seats. The GX Premium and Luxury grades have standard third-row seating with a bench middle row, while the Overland is strictly a five-seater with two rows of seats.
Powertrain & Fuel Economy
The 2024 GX has a 3.4-liter twin-turbocharged V6 under the hood, good for 349 horsepower and 479 lb-ft. of torque. The engine connects to a 10-speed direct-shift automatic that sends power to all four wheels using a standard four-wheel drivetrain with a Torsen limited-slip locking center differential to split the power evenly between the front and rear axles.
In addition, a Lexus GX Hybrid is arriving soon (possibly for the 2025 model year), and it’ll most likely brandish the high-output hybrid powertrain from the 2024 Toyota Sequoia or 2024 Tundra.
Standard in every Lexus GX Overtrail is the brand’s Multi-Terrain Select driving modes (Auto, Dirt, Sand, Mud, and Deep Snow), including a multi-terrain monitor to view the vehicle’s undersides while off-roading.
Meanwhile, Overtrail grades also have an electronic locking rear differential to distribute torque between the left and right rear wheels evenly. Moreover, the Overtrail variants receive an electronic kinetic dynamic suspension system with disconnecting front and rear stabilizer bars to assist wheel articulation when forging challenging terrain.
The 2024 Lexus GX has a 26-degree approach, 24-degree breakover, and 21-degree departure angles, thanks to the vehicle’s boxy countenance and short overhangs.
Lexus claims the GX Premium, Premium+, and Overtrail grades could tow up to 8,000 lbs. with the standard tow hitch, beating its closest rivals like the Genesis GV80 and BMW X5.
Lexus is aiming for an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 21 on the highway, more than the old V8-equipped GX and its EPA-rated 19 mpg on the highway.
