The automaker shared the details of the lineup. The Lexus GX inspired by Ajak played by Salma Hayek is powerful, commanding as the character. The superhero is paired with one of the most capable SUVs in the land, stated the company. Superhero Druig, played by Barry Keoghan, also gets a GX which reflects the rebel in his character.
