Ready for the Trail: Lexus GX Gets an Off-Road Package for 2020

From its looks, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Lexus GX is another luxurious soft-roader that’s tuned more for the Whole Foods parking lot than any challenging terrain. And while it’ll happily handle standard suburban duties, since it’s built on the same platform as Toyota’s legendary Land Cruiser, it’s also unafraid to continue when the going gets rough. So for 2020 Lexus has decided to capitalize on that cred by offering an off-road package, which given the already-stout mechanical bits, comes largely in the form of electronic aids…

The base — as silly as that sounds — version will be packing 600 horsepower and 553 lb-feet of torque, while the Competition model will have 617 ponies on tap.

Two Independent Test Show Supra Making More Power Than Advertised

We’ve been covering the Toyota Supra since it was just a rumor, and while the transition from concept to reality seemed to take an eternity, it’s clear the wait has been worth it.
