If we consider latest reports, it is quite possible to see a completely new 2018 Lexus GX to come next year. This luxury SUV is a vehicle that doesn’t have many competitors on the market. Classic truck-based luxury SUVs are rare nowadays, especially in a mid-size segment. It originally came in 2002, while the current second-generation model is present since 2009. Although it isn’t that old, its redesign is quite expected, especially if we consider that its related models Prado and 4Runner came completely new few years ago. So, new GX should be a logical move. However, the future of this SUV is still uncertain and the company could easily discontinue this model. On the other side, there are more those optimistic reports that expect completely new 2018 GX next year.
2018 Lexus GX redesign
We could easily see a new 2018 Lexus GX completely redesigned. The current model is present since 2009 and we could see some major changes for the next year. If this happens, the new model will come with plenty of changes. It should continue its relation with famous 4Runner and Prado models, sharing a platform and many other parts. We will see new light materials in use that will provide some important weight savings. On the other side, visual appearance should be completely different. Toyota’s luxury division is going to introduce a completely new design language for its SUV lineup and 2018 Lexus GX could be the first model to feature it. When it comes to the interior design, we expect to see a completely new cabin, which will besides new look also feature plenty of new technologies.
2018 Lexus GX engines
When it comes to the powertrain, 2018 Lexus GX will probably come with some big changes. The current model features a large V8 engine, which is good for about 300 horses. However, the company will probably replace it with some smaller and more efficient engine, probably with six cylinders. This will provide much better fuel economy, which is one of the most important things nowadays. However, we are pretty sure that the new model will continue with the company’s excellent quality and reliability.
