In the past few years, Toyota and Lexus started an extensive process of re-designing the entire frame that has brought an updated version of Land Cruiser, LX, Tundra, Sequoia, etc. The time has come for the mid-sized range. The brand-new Tacoma was just unveiled and the 4Runner is anticipated to arrive shortly. We are also expecting the next generation GX which will likely be the last model to be released. The official announcements remain silent, but the majority of our sources indicate that the next model will be available in the coming year 2025 Lexus GX 550.
We’re expecting big things from the new model which should not be surprising given that the model we have been using has been in existence for almost 15 years. It’s outdated in many ways, therefore we’re fairly certain it will have some significant innovations. This is a reference to every aspect of the vehicle, beginning with the new platform, the new engine and interior design, the aesthetics, and more.
2025 Lexus GX 550 Redesign
As previously mentioned the new generation is under development, and is expected to be released in 2025 as the 2025 Lexus GX 550. At the moment Lexus tries to keep the majority of information a secret. But, some aspects of the Luxury SUV are fairly simple to identify. Of course, the platform is just among the first things that pop into your mind. Similar to the other models in the BoF range the model will change to the TNGA-F platform. This is a little smaller compared in comparison to LX. However, the benefits will be similar, beginning with a better ride.
It will permit the use of advanced technologies, be it the most advanced driver assistance features or hybrid powertrains. We also expect to see a different and more refined suspension system. There are also rumors of an air suspension option.
In terms of our exterior style, we rely on the application of the latest design language. The front design should resemble the size of the LX at some point but the overall appearance is expected to be identical to the previous generation. We don’t anticipate an increase in size, however, as that will be beneficial for the amount of space for passengers. Instead, the wheelbase will stay quite shorter than the size of the vehicle, which could be extremely advantageous in terms of off-roading possibilities.
In terms of off-roading, 2025 Lexus GX 550 should be at the very least as good as the current generation. This means a decent ground clearance, as well as an extensive list of optional and standard off-road features. Four-wheel drive will be an option, but you could be able to count on features such as bedded differentials that lock, skid plates crawl control Transmission cooler Multi-Terrain monitors, and others.
The current model has pretty excellent build quality, however, because it’s been around for far too long, the model appears old-fashioned. So, we’re expecting major improvement in this area. The new model is expected to feature more luxurious materials and beautiful design. Naturally, having a whole range of modern features is another aspect we’re expecting to bring a significant impact on the overall luxury feel.
In terms of the space for passengers it is likely that since the wheelbase is set to stay the same, it won’t be much different from the model currently in use. The outgoing model features three rows of seating, however, the third row isn’t the most spacious in terms of space. The cargo space is, however standard for this segment. We can therefore assume that this new design won’t cause radical changes to this area also.
This is sure to be among the most innovative aspects of the 2025 Lexus GX 550 when it comes to modifications. It’s nothing not in the race with regards to its powertrain. It was powered by a dependable V8 engine, which has an excellent sound but doesn’t have a lot of power. Not only is it lacking the power of modern standards, but it’s extremely thirsty. It is possible to get greater than 15mpg when driving in the city, and 19 mpg on the highway.
The next generation will be quite different. We anticipate it to come with the hybrid powertrain. Based on the verification process that we have seen, we are expecting less power than the larger LX. Because of this, we’re pretty certain that the hybrid powertrain will be built on a 2.4-liter turbo-four motor. The engine should be similar to that which was just unveiled in the brand new Tacoma which has the same 326 horsepower as well as 465 pounds-feet of torque. In this instance, the horsepower and torque numbers are likely to increase some. In addition to an engine that is hybrid, we could also see a Tundra that has a 3.4-liter turbo V6. It will be the same variant of the engine found in the regular Tundra and will have a maximum output of 349 HP.
2025 Lexus GX 550 Release Date and Price
We anticipate 2025 Lexus GX 550 will arrive sometime during the second half of 2024. In terms of cost, we believe that the new model could start around 60,000 dollars.
