Most Lexus models have Toyota counterparts, and the GX has been absent from India's crossover/SUV market.
Lexus seemed to await the arrival of the all-new GX before considering its launch in India.
The GX carries over the luxurious styling of the LX and boasts all the signature Lexus elements.
The exterior features harpoon-shaped DRLs, a spindle grille, and rugged elements like angular wheel arches and roof rails.
The cabin offers ample space for four passengers, comfortable seats with massage functions, and excellent sound insulation.
The dashboard combines modern tech, including a 14-inch screen, with traditional switches for user-friendly control.
The new GX focuses on off-road capabilities with features like electronic kinetic damping suspension and advanced terrain modes.
The GX is powered by a 3.5L V6 petrol engine, delivering 350PS and 650Nm, with smooth power delivery for off-road conditions.
The GX offers Crawl Control, a capable electronic power steering system, and a comfortable off-roading experience.
Lexus considers bringing the GX to India, with expected competition against luxury SUVs like Range Rover Sport and Land Cruiser 300.
