Is yours a special order? Will you be getting the Driver Support Package that comes with radar cruise control, crawl control, etc? I wanted to get my GX with the Driver Support Package but could not wait for a special order.

There's an heir of change surrounding Lexus lately, but is seemingly is taking forever

Curious as to what the heir of change is? Will it be the new and up and coming models coming from Lexus such as the RC, NX, etc...

Not just new models though that is obviously key including explanding F and F-Sport, but the philosophy is changing, customer base is changing, new markets to tap, social media explosion, new technology and powertrains on the horizon and a drive to move upmarket. Suffice to say Lexus is busy. Other than the NX, RC and redesigned RX next year, the LF-LC Concept and next gen LS around 2015/16 should make the biggest splash once again establishing Lexus's commitment to Luxury, Performance, Innovation and Engineering

I guess they are selling a lot better now. I passed by the dealership and talked to a buddy of mine that works there, he stated that people are buying them for MSRP and they are not budging much off MSRP anymore since there is a high demand. They didn't have any units on the lot even to show or test drive.

High demand and low supply here in Utah. No vehicles available for test drive in the state. Not paying msrp though. Just read comments to a short article on the 460 in C&D and there is consensus that the gen 2 and 2.5 are ugly dinosaurs. I love it and am awaiting delivery on a base model, white with black interior, nav and f sport.

well there is no other luxury bof out there, and i agree with some comments. styling could obviously always be better. all angles still look the same on the gx except the front grill, but that was enough to lure more buyers in. demand is higher this year probably due to heavy snowfall everywhere and the redesign.
wait till summer or slightest rise up in gas, and you 'll see demand fall off a cliff.

Invoice is very possible in my area.
My son in law just bought a $63K list white/black for invoice.

Plenty of them here too...

I think the issue may just be lower inventories in general in some markets.

I wouldn't say the GX is selling hot cakes but probably a spike in demand I have seen quite a number around in the upscale areas of Long Island the 2014 models, it certainly looks better than I thought in pictures I must say!

Yes, I had to order for the Driver's support package. Dealers in this market will not allocate that option as it maked the MSRP too much for what they believe they will sell on the lot, so its Special order only.

I at least received my VIN, and the vehicle now shows in the dealer's online inventory. I imagine its afloat, so just waiting on notice of delivery to dealership. Hopefully with a couple of weeks.

Congratulations! When did you special order your GX? Please post pictures when you get a chance. I should have special ordered my GX back in either October or November so I could have received it in December.
