Lexus GX: Second GenerationPhotochops

Will the Updated 2020 Lexus GX 460 Look Like This?

Lexus GX Update Refresh Render

After spy shots of the upcoming Lexus GX 460 refresh broke last week, Russian website КОЛЕСА wasted no time imagining what the SUV might look like under the camouflage.

Should these renderings be accurate, there won’t be much separating the GX from its current form — a grille based on the LX flagship design and new lights would be the extent of the changes.

As a comparison, the original images before Photoshop:

(Projecting the debut of the updated GX is pure guesswork, but Lexus has used the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to reveal updated models in the past. Barring that venue or an online debut, the next possibility is the LA Auto Show.)

Can you expand you statement with details? I've heard the grill will resemble the UX pattern
The headlights aren't like any newer Lexus; they generally keep the swoosh DRL offset or otherwise visually distinct from the main headlight. And what in the world is sticking out of the doors near the bottom?
I honestly think this is just a tester vehicle where they fitted maybe some safety sensors and steering wheel onto an existing vehicle rather than being the full next generation refresh is going to look like. It doesn't make sense how it would have an old generation steering wheel (Newer than it had but still not the newest one being put on LC and beyond), the gauge cluster it had from 10 years ago with an awkwardly fitted newer than it had but still older than current gauge screen, and it's supposed to keep the 5+ year old 8th generation navigation?? This is like the craziest mix of tech I've seen in a Lexus lol - I doubt this is the final one we're looking at

There will be a refresh for 2020, before the all-new model in ~2022/2023 :)

Yeah I suppose it could just be a refresh launching for model year 2020/2021 but if it launches with this mismatched set of technology and features sprawled from so many different generations I'd be a little surprised to be honest. I've never seen that kind of thing before on a Lexus, but I guess the GX has always broken the rules on that sort of thing, hah

If I've learned anything about Lexus over the last few years, it's to take spy pictures like this at face value and not try to infer what should or could be the case. So... yeah... I think this is our reality.

In full disclosure, I love the GX as a package and I don't think BOF vehicles need to change platforms and tech as often as unibody ones. The only thing the GX really needs is a new powertrain.
