Lexus TX 2024: A New Model



After Toyota, it's now Lexus's turn to present us with a new model in the form of a three-row luxury SUV called the TX. As you probably suspect, it is based on the same platform as the Toyota Grand Highlander unveiled earlier this year.


The Lexus TX 2024 is very imposing, yet elegant and modern. It's a vehicle that will certainly turn heads wherever it goes. It offers several sets of wheels ranging from 20 to 22 inches in size.


The Japanese manufacturer's SUV is very luxurious and benefits from the latest technologies on the market, such as the Lexus Safety System+ 3.0, which encompasses a range of safety technologies. The TX also features a 14-inch touchscreen for its multimedia system.


Several versions will be available in Canada: Premium, Ultra Luxury, Executive, F Sport Performance 2, and F Sport Performance 3.


Why TX?


In my opinion, it is not a coincidence that Lexus chose this name for its new large luxury three-row SUV. Although the manufacturer has not mentioned anything about the inspiration behind calling it the TX, we know that it was specifically designed for the North American market. Therefore, I dare to believe that the letters TX were chosen because they also represent the abbreviation of the state of Texas. It is not uncommon for automakers to use the names of cities or geographic regions in North America for some of their vehicles. It brings a sense of belonging, and the state of Texas embodies greatness and the American dream.


Three Engines


There is a choice under the hood of the all-new Lexus TX, as the Japanese manufacturer's SUV offers three different engines. It starts with a 2.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that alone delivers a power of 275 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and comes with all-wheel drive as standard.


Next, we move on to the first electrified engine in the lineup. It is once again a 2.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, but this time it is paired with a hybrid system for a total power of 366 horsepower and 409 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is also included, but this model comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Finally, the Japanese manufacturer's SUV features a V6 combined with a plug-in hybrid system with a total power of 406 horsepower.


In terms of fuel consumption, Lexus announces an average of 11.2 L/100 km for the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The hybrid version is more fuel-efficient, with 9.8 L/100 km. However, the plug-in hybrid version turns out to be the most economical of the three, with an average consumption of 7.8 L/100 km.


The gasoline and hybrid versions will be available at dealerships by the fall of 2023. However, patience will be required for the plug-in hybrid version, as the Japanese manufacturer has not mentioned a specific date.
