Lexus has answered the demand for a smaller three-row offering with the highly anticipated launch of the 2024 TX. This all-new model fills the void left by the absence of the RX L in the automaker’s lineup, and it arrives with an impressive array of features and powertrain options.
The 2024 Lexus TX will be available with three distinct powertrains, providing drivers with a range of choices to suit their preferences. The TX 350 boasts a 2.4-liter turbocharged inline-four engine that generates 275 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. It can be configured with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. For those seeking a hybrid option, the TX 500h delivers with its 2.4-liter hybrid powertrain, producing a remarkable 366 horsepower and 409 lb-ft of torque. The pinnacle of performance lies with the TX550h+, equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 plug-in hybrid engine that offers an exhilarating 406 horsepower and an estimated 33 miles of pure-electric range.
When it comes to design, Lexus has prioritized aerodynamic performance while adorning the TX with the stunning “Unified Grille.” The sleek headlights are seamlessly connected by a subtle trim piece across the front, while a striking full-width, L-shaped light bar stretches beneath the iconic Lexus branding at the rear.
The 2024 TX will be available in four distinct grades: Standard, Premium, Luxury, and F Sport Performance. Standard and Premium grades come equipped with 20-inch wheels, while Luxury and F Sport Performance trims boast 22-inch wheels. The 500h F Sport trim features exclusive 22-inch rims with a unique design. The crossover will be offered in seven captivating exterior colors, including Cloudburst Gray, Wind Chill Pearl, Caviar, Matador Red Mica, Nightfall Mica, Incognito, and Celestial Silver Metallic.
Inside the TX, drivers will find an impressive range of features. The available 12.3-inch infotainment display and head-up display provide a seamless and informative driving experience. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, ensuring effortless connectivity. Additionally, customers have the option to upgrade to the remarkable 21-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, available for all powertrain options. The crossover also boasts seven charging outlets and three power outlets for added convenience.
The TX offers flexible seating options, with the choice between second-row captain’s chairs or a 60/40 split-folding bench. For added versatility, the two-seat layout includes a removable second-row center console. Built on the GA-K platform, which also underpins the new Toyota Grand Highlander, the TX shares some similarities in exterior and interior styling.
The 2024 TX outshines its predecessor, the 2022 RX L, in terms of size and cargo capacity. With a larger footprint, the TX provides significantly more space for belongings. It offers 20.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the third row, 57.4 cubic feet behind the second row, and an impressive 97 cubic feet with both rows folded flat.
While Lexus has not yet disclosed the exact pricing for the TX, it is expected to occupy a position between the new RX and the all-new 2024 GX, which also debuted alongside it. Considering the starting price of the 2023 RX at around $50,000, the TX is anticipated to fall within the low- to mid-$50,000 range. Production of the TX will take place at Lexus’ Indiana factory, with a focus on meeting the demands of the North American market. The crossover is set to go on sale later this year, with the TX 350 and 500h expected to arrive in dealerships this fall, followed by the TX 550h+ in the near future.
