As overlanding continues to grow in popularity, more and more major manufacturers are looking to get in on the off-road expedition action, the most recent of which is Lexus with its new GX Overland Concept. According to the marque, the concept was done in an effort to “push the limits of the idea and the emergence of luxurious camping.”
Built by Lexus Canada for the ongoing Montreal Auto Show, the concept is constructed around a 2020 GX 460 Executive Package and features a wide array of off-road upgrades from leading aftermarket outfits. The 4.6L V8-powered off-roader sports custom RAYS rims wrapped in Toyo all-terrain rubber, lifted ICON suspension, CBI bumpers and skid-plate, RIGd swing-out rear tire carrier, and a roof-top tent from Alu Cab. Other highlights include custom sliders with laser-cut Lexus logos, custom livery with a topographical-themed graphics kit, a shower cube and awning, and a plush interior with red leather seats, aluminum trim, and large headrest displays complete with a remote. While the concept isn’t slated for production, it nonetheless demonstrates overlanding becoming more mainstream in the automotive sector.
