Rumor has it that the upcoming 2022 Lexus GX will get a redesigned work although the company hasn’t said anything about it. As a luxury brand, it’s important that Lexus maintains its reputation by re-updating the look of its products. Some people have expected the changes for the SUV. Since the GX460 has been a pretty old design, it’s due time for refreshment. But it’s only a speculation. But with LQ concept being displayed and introduced, it’s only normal for GX fans to expect improved performance and quality for their beloved SUV.
Since there haven’t been many details about the GX 460, we can’t really talk about it. But there are several rumors flying around, especially about the new engine. Some people are still digging about the so-called I-Force Max engine that was created for LX variants, which is actually quite good for smaller SUV. What about hybrid engine? It isn’t likely happening for the upcoming GX – at least not for this powerful and bold ride.
But when it comes to appearance, it is more likely that the new 2022 Lexus GX would be coming with new appearance. Since the launch of the on-going model (which took place in 2009), the ride has undergone two facelifts where the last one took place in 2018. But the company won’t say anything about the complete refreshment work on the inside as well as the outside.
Although GX 460 should be able to respond well to enthusiasts’ mechanical needs, it should remain comfy and convenient. After all, the GX comes as a luxury model, which means that latest technologies, updates, and features are badly needed. It would be nice if the new vehicle can come with advanced audio system, power seats, safety equipment, extra cargo space, and climate control in multiple zone arrangement.
For now, it seems that Lexus is more focused on the LQ. They introduced LQ as their future and flagship SUV. This platform would definitely affect the others and cause changes in the overall design. GX and LX are the popular variants so it’s hard to believe that the company is going to replace or discontinue them soon. Some auto enthusiasts even predict that the LQ is designed as the future platform for the GX although there are several controversies and debates of the line. LQ has aggressive line and construction, which is somewhat doubtful for sporty and smaller SUV. Will it suit the GX well? That’s the major question.
Release Date and Price
The SUV has been known as a three row vehicle with spacious arrangement, which means that it has impressive performance and quality – especially in terms of comfort. For the upcoming launch, the company has planned launches for two models. The company has planned update projects for the next 5 years. Toyota also plans on releasing the first updates for Tundra and 4Runner.
There isn’t any official confirmation about the price and availability of the ride, but a lot of people are hopeful for the release in this year – which means in 2021. And for the price range, we just have to wait for further info about 2022 Lexus GX.
