Whenever there is a new model coming from the stables of Lexus, it is quite obvious that it will evince quite a bit of interest and excitement. It is quite natural that the upcoming luxury SUV, new 2020 Lexus GX 460 is also generating quite a bit of excitement and expectations. However, there is nothing reliable that is coming out from Lexus as far as the contours, shapes, sizes and other features of the 2020 model are concerned. Hence, we have to go by opinion, hearsay and of course, there are quite a few things that are coming out from the grapevine. We will try and piece together the information available and come out with some rough outline as far as the exteriors, interiors, engine and price of the 2020 Lexus (GX 460) is concerned. Though it will mostly be based on unconfirmed sources, there are reasons to believe that it will be quite accurate and could be relied upon.
2020 Lexus GX 460 Changes, Exteriors
The new Lexus GX 460 2020 exterior will most probably be a continuation of the past but it is expected that there could be some changes. They may not be radical but they certainly will be noticeable. The grill, though white and large, might look quite different in terms of design and other attributes. The 2020 GX 460 LED lights have been given a new makeover and they certainly will look quite different and attractive. Also, we could find something different as far as the taillights are concerned. However, these might come as an optional feature. You could look forward to a black exhaust tip. Apart from this, there should not be much of a change as far as the exteriors are concerned. There could be some cosmetic changes only.

The automatic emergency braking systems will be a part of the interiors. It also is likely to have leather and wood trimmed and heated steering wheel.
