2008 GX 470 Now on Lexus USA Website

The 2008 Lexus GX 470

The 2008 Lexus GX 470 has been added to the Lexus USA website, and as expected, the changes are minimal and completely cosmetic.

What has changed?

  • New dark metallic finish on the front grille
  • Chrome roof rack side rails
  • Liquid graphite on the standard 17-inch alloy wheels
  • Clear rear combination lamp turn signal lens cover
  • Two new exterior colors: Salsa Red Pearl and Desert Sage metallic
  • New interior Brown Walnut wood trim and a chrome finish on the front door speaker grilles

Even as it nears the end of its lifecycle, the GX 470 is still a thoroughly modern -looking truck, and one of my favorites in the Lexus lineup. It never fails to impress me when I see one, and my hope is that the upcoming redesign (scheduled for 2009) doesn’t tinker too much. A more powerful engine, a redesigned interior maybe, but really, how much could they improve upon that exterior?
