2024 Lexus GX 550 Overtrail and Platinum First Drive and Off-Road Test

The all-new 2024 Lexus GX 550 was designed to inspire customers to pursue their urge to travel, take an unpaved path, immerse themselves in nature, and revel in the joy of driving. As part of that journey, GX blazes the trail as the first vehicle to bring the global Lexus “Overtrail Project” to life.

The 2024 Lexus GX 550 is more rugged with a body-on-frame underpinning, and more technology, safety, and comfort than ever before. check out the first-ever Overtrail grade with standard 33-inch All-Terrain tires and 18-inch wheels. Powered by a 3.4L twin-turbo V6 produces 349 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft. of torque.

I was impressed with the new Lexus Interface with a 14-inch multimedia touchscreen, impressive off-road deep mud driving, and plenty of comfort and style.
