The 2024 Lexus GX is in high demand, with over 500 pre-orders already placed and wait times beginning to grow.

Lexus GX 2024: More than 500 pre-orders, waiting times already increasing

The 2024 Lexus GX all-wheel drive, a luxury version of the upcoming Toyota LandCruiser Prado, has already garnered 500 pre-orders with a wait time of nearly six months in Australia. The vehicle is set to hit showrooms in mid-2024.

With an initial allocation of 1,500 vehicles for the Australian market in the first 12 months, Lexus Australia’s General Director John Pappas acknowledged that the popularity of the Lexus GX in Australia would lead to tight supply levels.

“We’ve had a lot of interest in that car,” Pappas mentioned during a recent media event.

While the release date is set for June, there are already over 500 pre-orders, with the company aiming for around 1,500 GX units in the first year. Pappas expressed that they are approaching the six-month mark in pre-orders even though the launch is still three months away.

When asked about the potential for increased production to meet demand, Pappas stated that they are inquiring about additional units but have not confirmed anything beyond the initial 1,500 vehicles.

The 2024 Lexus GX is priced at $116,000 for the Luxury version and $128,200 for the Sports Luxury model, excluding on-road costs.

Approximately 20% of buyers are opting for the off-road-focused Overtrail trim level, but initial figures show that 30% of pre-order customers are selecting this variant. The Sports Luxury model is the most popular among buyers.

The Overtrail variant, with a price starting at $122,250, includes features such as all-terrain tires on 18-inch wheels, all-terrain suspension, traction aids, wider wheel arch moldings, and additional styling enhancements. It is the only model in the lineup that offers five seats, while the Luxury and Sports Luxury versions accommodate seven passengers with a third row.

The Lexus GX is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo petrol V6 engine, producing 260kW/650Nm and mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. Riding on the TNGA-F body-on-frame platform shared with the Toyota LandCruiser Prado, the Lexus GX promises a similar off-road performance.

As the demand continues to rise for the Lexus GX, customers are advised to expect longer waiting times due to the limited initial supply. The popularity of this luxurious all-wheel drive vehicle is likely to persist beyond the initial release, making it a sought-after choice in the Australian market.
