#12 of 31 GX Model Change - CONFIRMED!
Apr 20, 2009 (4:21 am)
Let me put to rest the answer to this question. The GX will get a redesign this fall and look for it to hit dealerships around November as a 2010 model. It's new look will be similar to the LX 570 - call it a baby LX. It will get the Smart Access Key (the key that you don't have to take out of your pocket - Push Button Start), it will be called the GX 460 and it will get a new rear door. No longer will it swing out to the side it will open "up" (toward the sky). No pics yet but if I find one I'll pass it along. Stay tuned yall!

This is great news! I've had my checkbook ready for months. I'd surely like to hear this news from more than one source. I suppose that not too many people are running out and buying SUV's these days, and so aren't looking too much at the SUV forums. Maybe the anti-SUV bias will remain and there will be some good deals come November. Hard to tell in this atmosphere. I've got an awfully nice '06 GX to trade in. Thanks very much and please keep us up-to-date.

This is good news, I'm in exactly the same situation. I recently almost purchased a GX 470, but would rather hold off for potential 2010 redesign. Primarily, I don't like the rear door and would like to see it come as it does on the LX.

Lastlaflar, where did you get this information on a redesign? How official is it?

Yes, please illuminate us seer. Are you lexus upper management? Lexus dealers have said they "just don't know." Maybe Lexus hasn't made a firm decision? Lots of us will buy something else if the suspense continues past June. Oh no!

I was in the Lexus dealership yesterday and was told the GX will be redesigned for 2010 to come out later this year. In fact, he offered me an excellent deal on an '09 because of that. I passed as I would prefer to have the new design.

Please let me know. I have a 2004 Lexus GX 470 and I am want the hybrid version. my email address is johnepattonyahoo.com.
Do you know what type of gas mileage it will get in the city

There is no hybrid version of the current GX470 and I doubt there will be a hybrid version of its replacement. If you want a hybrid Lexus SUV, then your choice is limited to the RX hybrid, but overall I think that economics favor the regular RX over the hybrid
If the rumors are correct and the replacement GX is of similar size as the current GX470 and comes with a 4.6l V8, then gas mileage in the city will be similarly bad, in the 15 mpg range.
#21 of 31 Could not wait on the 2010 GX!

I went ahead with the LX 570 last month. Traded a 2007 GX. Believe me, the new LX 570 is magnificent!! It is everything Lexus says and more!!! They are now selling the LX less than manufactures list price, although not much. The big V8 really moves this LX. Love it!!!
