Last Friday we learned the importance of an SUV here at Top Speed HQ. Although the oversized machines may have gotten a bad rap for consuming too much or taking up to much space; they are larger than life and exert a go anywhere attitude even if more often than not their tires will never touch real dirt. So as long as you are going to ride above the road, why not do it in style and comfort, like in a Lexus GX .
The Japanese luxury carmaker Lexus will be launching their next generation GX full size SUV this fall, will all new sheet metal and a revised interior. According to Lexus General Manager, Mark Templin "The largest SUVs have been hit the hardest, but there’s still a segment of the population that wants those vehicles," and Lexus is going to give it to them. The 2010 GX will be powered by a 4.6 Liter V8 engine borrowed from the 2010 Toyota Tundra and maintain the same body-on-frame construction as the current model for that go anywhere last forever feel.
