Lexus Goes Off-Roading With RX, GX, And ROV Concepts In Tokyo


A trio of off-road-focused concepts has been unveiled by Lexus at the Tokyo Auto Salon as part of the automaker’s Overtrail Project.

Through the Overtrail Project, Lexus wants to strengthen its association with casual outdoor activities from everything including picnics in neighborhood parks to full-scale overlanding adventures.

The first concept is dubbed the Lexus RX Outdoor Concept. It is based on the standard Lexus RX 450h+ and has had its ride jacked up by 20 mm. It also rocks a black painted grille, aluminum skid plate, LED lights, black painted lower bumper, black stainless steel window moldings, black door handles, mudguards, and dark brown arch molding. It is also sitting on 18×7.5-inch Rays wheels with 265/60 all-terrain tires.

These include an LED light bar on the front bumper, an LED light bar on the aftermarket roof rack, a Yakima rooftop tent, Warn electrical winch, Old Man Emu suspension upgrades, and Toyo Open Country M/T tires measuring 275/65 R18 at all four corners.

Last but not least is the Lexus ROV Concept 2. It builds upon the original ROV Concept unveiled in December 2021 and is driven by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine running on compressed hydrogen gas. It has a sequential transmission with paddle shifters, selectable two-wheel and four-wheel drive with differential lock, and is even fitted with airless tires.

Other key components found on the ROV Concept 2 include an aluminum skid plate, LED light bar, revised suspension, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a shift knob made from machined aluminum.
