Lexus just teased the forthcoming Lexus TX, a new utility model set to rival the Cadillac XT6 and Buick Enclave. The new Lexus TX will indirectly replace the Lexus RXL, an extended-length, three-row variant of the Lexus RX that was discontinued after the 2022 model year. The new Lexus TX will also share the same TNGA-K underlying architecture as the upcoming Toyota Grand Highlander.
The new teaser image shows a close-cropped view of the crossover’s driver-side rear quarter panel, giving us an early look at a portion of the doors, windows, roofline, taillights, and wheels. The profile looks to incorporate a “floating roof” design with the C- and D-pillars painted black, enhancing the silver roofline up top. The rear door handle is accented in black, as is the taillight housing. A multi-spoke wheel with a technical layout and dark finish can be seen under the fender, while in back, a black fender garnish can be seen around the lower section of the rear fascia.
“Something big is coming!” Lexus teases. “Introducing the first-ever Lexus TX, coming soon.”
Although Lexus declined to provide details on the powertrain, we can look to the Toyota Grand Highlander for a few hints as to what we should expect. The 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander will be offered with three powertrains total, with the range-topper being the Hybrid Max option, rated at 362 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The Toyota Grand Highlander will also offer a turbocharged 2.4L gasoline engine rated at 265 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, and a 2.5L hybrid engine rated at 243 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. Output will be routed through either the front wheels, or all four wheels depending on the configuration.
The 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander also offers an “adult-sized” third-row seat, and expanded cargo room with space for up to seven carry-on suitcases behind the third row.
