2024 Lexus TX: Luxury Meets Comfort in Three-Row SUV
A new Lexus three-row SUV is on the way, giving us a brand-new way to transport the whole family. Recently, Lexus released a teaser image of the upcoming 2024 TX SUV. This new luxury SUV will share a platform with the new Toyota Grand Highlander, which means it will likely also share powertrains. What else do we know about this new Lexus SUV?
What does the 2024 Lexus TX teaser image tell us?
Lexus purposely avoided offering too much information in one image by providing a tightly cropped photo o the rear half of this new Lexus three-row SUV. All that’s shown is the vehicle from the rear door to the back, which only tells us the styling will differ greatly from the Grand Highlander.
The greatest differences can be found in the rear quarter window and the rear lights. The lights of the Lexus TX wrap further around the corner, offering a more luxurious appeal. The rear pillar is also blacked out to give the roof a floating appearance, which we’ve seen in many SUVs.
Why should we care about this new Lexus luxury SUV?
Lexus already has three SUVs that offer three rows of seats, the LX, GX, and RX L. The LX and GX ride on body-on-frame, truck-like platforms to offer rough-and-tumble driving dynamics and plenty of off-road capabilities. The RX L is a midsize unibody SUV with a tight third-row area.
When the new 2024 Lexus TX arrives, it will ride on the TNGA-K platform and offer the best of both worlds. This new luxury SUV should have plenty of space for adults in all three rows, and it utilizes a unibody construction to provide a smoother driving experience than the larger, truck-like SUVs.
What powertrains should we see in the 2024 Lexus TX?
Three expected powertrains could be part of the lineup for this new Lexus luxury SUV. Suppose the same powertrains offered in the Toyota Grand Highlander make it to the TX. In that case, we’ll see a 2.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, and hybrid motor, and a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine plus tow electric motor to make the most power. This top powertrain should offer 362 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, standard AWD, and up to 5,000 pounds of towing.
What names should we expect for this new Lexus three-row SUV?
Motor1 informs us Lexus has filed trademark filings for names to coincide with the three powertrains. These names are TX350, TX500h, and TX500h+. This new Lexus TX will be built at the Toyota plant in Indiana alongside the new Toyota Grand Highlander, which makes perfect sense since the two share a platform.
When should we see the new Lexus TX?
Toyota just finished teasing us with the new Toyota Tacoma, which will finally make its world debut on May 19. Lexus has only released one image of the new TX. This means we can look forward to several months of teasing before this new Lexus SUV appears. We’re uncertain whether it will appear before the end of 2023 or arrive closer to the start of next year, but you can be we’re looking forward to its arrival.
