Lexus Executive Vice President Mark Templin has revealed the company could eventually drop the GX and LX.

In an interview with Autoblog, Templin said "... the future of those vehicles longer term is in doubt because of regulations that are being driven by governments all over the world."  This seems to suggest the models will stick around for awhile but could eventually be phased out to due to more stringent fuel economy and emissions standards. 

Templin declined to comment on possible replacements for the body-on-frame SUVs but previous reports have suggested the GX will go out of production next year and be replaced by a seven-seat crossover that could be called the TX.
