2024 Lexus GX Reviews

2024 Lexus GX Reviews: The Lexus GX, the brand’s mid-size off-road SUV, was overdue for a facelift, and it’s finally arrived for the 2024 model year. Based on an all-new platform with an updated powertrain and a host of more modern features, the new GX550’s rugged looks are about the only thing that links it to its outdated predecessor. The new model’s boxy, Land Cruiser-inspired exterior looks like it will age well – a good thing, as the GX has a history of long product cycles. Riding on the same body-on-frame platform as the Toyota Sequoia and Toyota Tundra, the 2024 GX550 will be available with a twin-turbo V-6 powertrain – offered with and without hybrid assist – rather than the outgoing model’s V-8. It slots into the Lexus SUV range between the flagship LX luxury SUV and the TX SUV, the latter of which is similar in size but more focused on interior space and on-road refinement.

The GX is one of Lexus’ oldest nameplates and is admired by off-road enthusiasts, so Lexus is wise to continue to offer it with plenty of off-road hardware. We expect to see the GX550 in Lexus showrooms in early 2024.

2024 Lexus GX Engine & Performance

A twin-turbocharged 3.4-litre V6 engine is standard on the GX550. At 349 horsepower, the turbocharged V-6 is more powerful than the previous generation GX’s V-8. A 10-speed automatic is also standard and all models come with four-wheel drive. Overtrail and Overtrail+ trims get more off-road goodies than standard, including 18-inch wheels with 33-inch all-terrain tyres, an aluminium skidplate, an adaptive suspension system with more wheel articulation, crawl control and selectable drive modes for different terrains. On the road, there is plenty of performance and the GX550 feels punchy off the line. The ride is firm, especially on the available upsized wheels. The steering is crisp and the GX’s handling is appropriate for the tall, boxy SUV that it is, but the Lexus really shines off-road. Outward visibility is excellent, which comes in handy when navigating narrow trails. During our initial test drive of the GX550, we had the chance to try out the Overtrail model’s advanced off-road technology and came away impressed. The transfer case allows the driver to select low range without locking the centre differential, giving a tighter turning radius, and the Electronic Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (E-KDSS) can disconnect the front or rear anti-roll bars independently to improve stability and reduce head toss.

On our test track, the GX550 Premium hit 60 mph in a respectable 6.2 seconds. That’s a full second quicker than the previous generation GX on our track.

Despite the GX’s rugged exterior, the interior is luxurious. Leather upholstery is available in a choice of colours, with Overtrail trim featuring dark green faux suede accents.

Overtrail models are strictly two-row affairs, seating up to five. The GX’s third row offers the option of electric controls.

Most models come with six USB-C ports throughout the cabin, but Overtrail and Overtrail+ models get just four; a wireless smartphone charging pad is optional. A 10-speaker stereo is standard, but audiophiles can upgrade to a 21-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system.

2024 Lexus GX Fuel Economy

Despite downsizing from a V8 to a twin-turbo V6, fuel economy doesn’t improve much over the 2023 model’s EPA estimates of 15 mpg city and 19 mpg highway. The EPA estimates the GX550 will deliver 15 mpg city and 21 mpg highway, and on our 75-mph motorway route, the GX500 Premium we tested delivered on its 21 mpg estimate.

2024 Lexus GX Price in Dubai?

The GX is priced between AED 260,000 and AED 300,000.

The cabin is equipped with a 3-inch digital gauge display for customizable information, six USB-C ports, and an optional wireless smartphone charging pad. Audiophiles can indulge in the upgraded 21-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system. However, despite the switch from a V8 to a twin-turbo V6, the fuel economy remains similar to the previous model. In terms of pricing, the GX ranges from AED 260,000 to AED 300,000 in Dubai.
