Lexus has released details on the refreshed 2020 GX 460, which has been updated with a new grille and Lexus Safety System+ as standard.
Here’s the full press release, with photos of the updated SUV.
For drivers of the updated 2020 GX 460, being safe and looking stylish on either Rodeo Drive or Imogene Pass is a cinch. And thanks to an all-new available Off-Road Package featuring Multi-Terrain Select, tackling tough terrain is equally as easy. Adding extra peace of mind is GX’s now standard Lexus Safety System+, completing Lexus’ milestone of equipping all models with standard active safety equipment.
Versatility best describes the luxurious three-row GX. It’s not only engineered for all kinds of terrain, including extreme off-road conditions, it also displays exceptional craftsmanship throughout and seating for up to...
Taking a look at the pictures, that is unfortunately not the 10th generation nav system, that is astoundingly the same old 8th gen nav that's been on the GX since 2014 (Which featured 3D/birds eye orientation as well). Gen 10 is easily spotted by its blue map color scheme and would have features such as CarPlay, this one unfortunately doesn't seem to have that - ouch!As far as I can tell this refresh *does* include the 10th-generation nav; they specifically mentioned the 3D mapping that's a feature of it.

This is what I want to know... they couldn't really do it for the 2020 RX and then leave the GX/others out high and dry, could they?... Does this GX not have CarPlay and Android Auto...?
Yeah, no mention of either CP or AA in the press release. Either someone on the Lexus PR team made a massive oversight, or this refresh was even more pointless than we thought.This is what I want to know... they couldn't really do it for the 2020 RX and then leave the GX/others out high and dry, could they?
GX has had 2nd row captains chairs as an option since I think 2017? But yes, red leather is killer!A big thing with dealers was a captains row option which it gets and a red leather option it seems. That said its pretty shocking this is now ten years old and on a third refresh. The thing is sales numbers do not lie and this thing has turned itself into a bread and butter SUV.
I assume Lexus is like "we would love to do something else but holy cash cow batman". Now how much longer does thing stay around until a new model?
