The 2024 Lexus GX 550 Is Now The “Value” Luxury Off-Roader?

From Alex on Autos.

Thanks to the recent addition of the Lexus TX, the brand’s new answer to Acura’s MDX, the popular Lexus GX gets tasked with a more focused and off-road mission than ever. That’s the main reason we don’t find any extra 3rd row or cargo room in this generation. Instead Lexus gives us a new 4WD system with more capability, a new engine with more power and torque, a new transmission with nearly double the gears and 2,500 lbs more towing capability. Yep, this GX will tow over 9,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Sadly however, the off road re-birth of the GX also means the loss of some classic Lexus virtues. The cabin is more austere than ever and it’s the first Lexus I can think of that sports fake wood rather than real-tree on the interior.
