On June 8, Toyota’s luxury division will unveil its newest vehicle. The Lexus TX 2024 should be more or less the gilded version of the 2024 Grand Highlander, which debuted at the 2023 Chicago Auto Show.
The TX and Grand Highlander belong to the large-medium SUV segment. As such, it will have three rows of seats. The Lexus version will compete with similar versions of the Acura MDX, Audi Q7, BMW X5, Cadillac XT6, Infiniti QX60Mercedes-Benz GLS, and VolvoXC90. The TX will replace the three-row RX L, but it won’t replace Terrain-oriented GX in the Lexus portfolio. Indeed, a redesigned GX is in production that is expected to debut after the TX as a 2024 model.
Full details will be available after the official launch, but you can expect most of the TX fundamentals to be consistent with the Grand Highlander. Under the hood, we expect all TX models to use one or both of Toyota’s hybrid options. The platform will be a 2.5-liter petrol engine combined with a battery-powered electric motor. The base configuration will make a total of 243 hp with the top-end Hybrid MAX variant making 362. Front- or all-wheel drive options will also be available.
Expect the TX to offer at least 6 inches more legroom in the third row and an inch more headroom than the outgoing version. Lexus RXL. Maximum cargo capacity must also match or be within a few percentage points of the Grand Highlander’s 97.5 cubic feet.
Trust that the TX will also offer the usual set of equipment and upgrades over its Toyota-branded sibling. Features such as leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel and second row, and rain-sensing windshield wipers can be standard on all Lexus models. .
While the product itself will be revealed on June 8, we won’t take into account that pricing will be announced until closer to the actual sale date, which we’re guessing is late summer or early summer. autumn. The Lexus TX 2024 will likely start at the same price as a top-of-the-line Grand Highlander, so the figure is around $55,000 with a full-load model hitting at least $75,000.
Like the Grand Highlander, the TX fills a void in the Lexus portfolio that has been vacant for years. The RX L is a nice enough car but feels rushed to market. It looks like the TX won’t have this problem, and if priced appropriately, it should prove to be an attractive alternative for long-time players in its segment.
