I don't want the giant LX, but I definitely want a truck. If they discontinue, I think I'd have no other choice but to downgrade to a 4-Runner when they finally get around to redesigning it
LOL THE GIANT LX. I agree with you its so huge I am considering a lexus SUV as well but recentley it seems they are talking to long to bring new redesigned SUVs the RX should really get a redesigned soon GX is still the same and I think they should consider adding a newer SUV to thier line up.

I'm glad I'm not crazy ... I've been trying to figure out if there was going to be a new body for 2009. I asked several different dealers and have heard different stories. I heard that Toyota was re-designing the 4-runner for 2009 (current model has been out since 2003) and that the GX would roll the same body again for 2009 and there would be a change for 2010. I also heard from a different dealer that there would be not change planned for a while. i'll keep checking and post when i hear anything. cheers fellow gx owners!

Last I read, the new GX will be out in the fall of 2009 as a 2010 model year. No doubt it will be called GX570.

Has anyone heard if the 2009 GX470 will get the larger V8 and 6-speed tranny that is used in the 2008 Sequoia?

An article on the RX body change seemed to indicate that a "new GX" would not debut at least until late 2010 as a 2011 model. They hinted that it might change to a unibody from the GS model instead of body on frame from the 4Runner. They go so far as to call it a crossover replacing the GX so a name change may be in order. If you like the current body on frame, 4Runner-based GX, you have 2 more model years (2009, 2010) to snap one up.

I asked this specific question to our Lexus dealer a few months ago and was told that the 2009 will be the same body style, and then the GX will no longer be made for 2010. I was told that Lexus will instead come out with a new mid-size SUV that is more of a crossover (it won't be called a GX anymore). I also heard talk of a hybrid at this mid-size level.

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.
