Lexus has officially unveiled the 2014 GX, following a leak earlier this week.
Looking instantly recognizable, the facelifted model is distinguished by a new front fascia with a prominent spindle grille. The model also gains LED-infused headlights, restyled taillights and a new rear bumper.
Interior changes are limited but include updated trim and a new infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen display. There's also a new Premium Package which adds perforated leather seats, heated and ventilated front seats, a tri-zone climate control system, Intuitive Parking Assist and GPS navigation.
If that's not impressive enough, the range-topping GX Luxury has an adaptable air suspension, Intuitive Parking Assist and a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The model also has GPS navigation and 18-inch alloy wheels with a liquid graphite finish.
Motivation is provided by a 4.6-liter V8 engine that develops 301 bhp (224 kW) and 329 lb-ft (445 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a full-time four-wheel drive system with a limited-slip torque-sensing center differential. This setup enables the model to return an EPA-estimated 15 mpg city / 20 mpg highway (US).
The 2014 Lexus GX will be priced from $49,085 when it arrives at dealerships in September.
