Now that the Toyota Tacoma has been totally revealed, it appears the Japanese automaker is popping consideration again to a different of its body-on-frame machines, the 2024 Lexus GX. It has launched one other teaser picture, and it reveals fairly a bit extra of the automobile. And now we all know how lengthy we’ve to attend to see the entire thing.
The teaser reveals a considerably shut have a look at the rear three-quarter angle of the Lexus. It reveals off the full-width taillight bar, however we’re extra enthusiastic about what we will see of the GX’s flanks. The perimeters appears to be like a lot less complicated and cleaner than the present mannequin. It loses the extra-large fender bulges in favor of extra slab sides with tight, subtly flared wheel arches. There is a outstanding tumblehome slightly below the window line, and a few extra clear metallic for the rear pillars. All of it reminds us a little bit of the Land Rover Defender, and that is not a grievance.
The window line is attention-grabbing, too. It is decrease alongside the doorways, after which it rises up simply previous the rear door shut line. It looks like it is echoing among the chunky strains elsewhere, akin to these on the bulging hood.
As for the tailgate, there is not any exterior spare tire, identical to the present one. We will not say for positive if this GX will abandon the side-hinged design of the present mannequin and its twin, the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. If it is nonetheless intently associated to the Prado, which may very possible retain an exterior spare, it might nonetheless have the old-school tailgate.
We’ll have all the main points quickly. The reveal can be June 8, and it will likely be proven alongside a very new Lexus mannequin, the TX. That SUV will apparently be primarily based on the Grand Highlander, so can be a really totally different automobile than the body-on-frame choices akin to the brand new GX and the LX, the latter of which relies on the full-size Land Cruiser.
