The Lexus GX midsize luxury SUV has been on sale since 2003 and has enjoyed some success during that time, managing to rack up to 35,420 sales in 2004--its best year on record and easily eclipsing the company’s annual target of 20,000 units. Demand in the midsize luxury SUV segment, however, has tanked in recent years and so far this year sales have dropped more than 52%.

While many rivals may soon start pulling out of the segment altogether, Lexus intends to stick it out by launching a redesigned GX. The latest model is expected to feature all-new sheet metal as well as a 310 horsepower 4.6-liter V-8 in replacement of the current model’s anaemic 263 horsepower 4.7-liter V-8. This new 4.6-liter engine, incidentally, is the same unit used in the 2010 Toyota Tundra.

The current body-on-frame platform will remain, but expect radically different styling as well as a redesigned rear door. The interior will also be fully updated, with more luxurious trim and an updated navigation system coming as standard.

The new GX will likely be called the GX 460 and bow in towards the end of the year as a 2010 model, most likely with a debut at the 2009 Los Angeles auto show in November.

  2. Dinasour. People that drive gas guzzlers have the right to do so. But, they put a burden on the rest of us because of it.

  6. Dinosaur? Try to fit 2 adults, 3 kids, and luggage into a Prius. SUVs, Pickups, etc all serve a purpose. Hey, let's take all the tractor trailers off the road too, while we're at it. I love my GX and I will happily "burden" Pam for a long time.

  7. Dinosaur? Funny. I'm 6'6" 250. I'm not driving some little hybrid cracker box. The small cars sure are cute, just don't get in an accident with an SUV. The GX is a great car!!
