Lexus GX is quite an old vehicle. And it continues this way into the 2020 model year, although the three-row SUV gets a few key updates.
First up are the design changes. The 2020 Lexus GX dons on updated version of the brand's signature spindle grille, featuring a new 3-D pattern inside. Complementing the bolder mouth are new triple-beam LED headlights. Inside the cabin, premium and luxury models receive new sapele wood with aluminum trim. Rioja Red with a black headliner. On the tech front, there are now a total of four USB ports.
Luxury models are available with a new off-road package, which includes crawl control, transmission cooler, fuel tank protector, and multi -terrain select, which offers different driving modes for different surfaces including loose rocks, mud and sand, and moguls. Also included are the Multi-Terrain and Panoramic View monitors, which will prove handy while navigating off-road obstacles. These monitors provide a view of the front, rear, side, and now underneath the vehicle.
Lexus Safety System + is now standard on all versions of the GX. This package includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert, intelligent high beams, and high-speed adaptive cruise control.
The 2020 Lexus GX still has the same engine: a 4.6-liter V-8 making 301 hp and 329 lb-ft of torque. In a 2017 First Test, the SUV hit 60 mph in 7.4 seconds. While the powertrain and interior design can be updated, the GX boasts a comfortable ride and strong off-road capability despite its age.
