On June 8, Toyota’s luxurious division will launch its latest car. The 2024 Lexus TX ought to roughly be a gilded model of the 2024 Grand Highlander, which made its debut on the 2023 Chicago Auto Present.
TX and Grand Highlander fall into the “large-midsize” class of SUVs. As such, it can have three rows of seating. The Lexus model will compete with the likes of the Acura MDX, Audi Q7, BMW X5, Cadillac XT6, Infiniti QX60, Mercedes-Benz GLS, and Volvo XC90. TX will exchange the three-row RX L, nevertheless it is not going to supplant the off-road-oriented GX in Lexus’ portfolio. Certainly a redesigned GX is within the works that’s anticipated to premiere after the TX as a 2024 mannequin.
Full particulars will probably be accessible after the official unveiling, however you possibly can count on a lot of the TX’s fundamentals to align with these of the Grand Highlander. Beneath the hood, we count on all TX fashions to make use of one or each of the Toyota’s hybrid choices. The inspiration could be a 2.5-liter gasoline engine paired with a battery-powered electrical motor. The bottom configuration would pump out a complete of 243 horsepower with the top-end Hybrid MAX variant making 362. Entrance- or all-wheel-drive choices must also be accessible.

Depend on TX to additionally provide the same old suite of upgraded trim and options over its Toyota-branded sibling. Options corresponding to leather-based upholstery, heated and ventilated entrance seats, heated second-row seats and steering wheel, and rain-sensing windshield wipers might be normal fare on all Lexus variations.
Whereas the product itself will probably be revealed on June 8, we wouldn’t rely on pricing to be introduced till nearer to the precise on-sale date, which we guess will probably be in late summer time or early fall. The 2024 Lexus TX will possible begin in the identical ballpark as a top-end Grand Highlander so determine round $55,000 with a totally loaded mannequin reaching no less than $75,000.
Just like the Grand Highlander, the TX fills a void in Lexus’ portfolio that has been vacant for a few years. The RX L was a pleasant sufficient car however felt rushed to market. It doesn’t seem like the TX could have this concern and if it’s priced proper, it ought to show to be a compelling different to the established gamers in its phase.
