2024 Lexus TX Review – After the announcement of Toyota's new SUV, the Grand Highlander 3-row SUV, Lexus followed. This Japan-based company also will release a new model for their SUV category. It is the 2024 Lexus Tx.
The new Lexus TX will most likely be the replacement or the improvement of the RX-L three-row SUV. RX-L is indeed a good SUV, but it comes with one flaw. It does not have a spacious interior, especially the rear area.
The new TX seems promising from the information we have collected. It has plenty of space for adults and comes with various luxury features. Therefore, you can have high expectations for this new Lexus model.
Also, this model will come with three different powertrains. Lexus plans to release them on a different date that we will talk about at the end of this article. But, you can see it sooner than you imagine. Now, let's see a more detailed review of this new Lexus model.
The Outer Appearance of 2024 Lexus TX
The overall dimension of this new vehicle put it in a medium-sized SUV. However, it has wider width, which gives it stability. The overall length is about 200 inches. Yet, Lexus designs it with a better aerodynamic design.
Best of all, the aerodynamic design doesn't reduce its efficiency. From what we are seeing, it also has fine-handling stability. It might be a perfect design for an SUV from this brand.
The front side holds a unique spindle design. Lexus uses a unified spindle design, which makes the low-set grille looks bold and cleaner. The horizontal appearance also is stronger thanks to the headlight that they put under the bumper.
When we move to the back, you can also see the signature light of Lexus. The L-shaped light bar looks beautiful, cool, and sharp. Overall, the exterior design gives it an elegant and luxurious look. Therefore, if you are looking for an SUV with a more premium vibe, TX is the best choice.
As mentioned earlier, there will be three models for the 2024 Lexus TX. They are TX350, TX500h, and TX550h+. Each of the models has a similar exterior design. However, as for its dimension, they are different from each other. Here are the details:
- TX 350: 203.1 x 78.3 x 70.1 inches (L x W x H),
- TX 500h: 203.5 x 78.3 x 70.1 inches
- TX 550h+: 203.1 x 78.3 x 70.1 inches
2024 Lexus TX Colors
The 2024 Lexus TX is available in different colors for its interior and exterior. You can find seven colors options for its exterior, which are:
- Cloudburst Gray
- Wind Chill Pearl
- Matador Red Mica
- Nightfall Mica
- Incognito Celestial
- Silver Metallic
As for its interior, there are three options for you. They are Peppercorn, Birch, and Black. This color combination gives you more options for the looks and vibe you want on this car model.
2024 Lexus TX Interior and Features
Now, let's see the interior. The three color options give you different interior styles you can choose. Furthermore, Lexus also provides different interior layouts you also can pick. You can choose the seat arrangement for up to seven of its three rows seater.
Then, you also have the option to get second-row captain's chairs, if you want a more spacious middle row. However, it seems that many people buy it as a family SUV. Therefore, not many of them choose this option.
Many three-row SUV vehicles have a problem with the rear seat. Yes, you get more space to carry more passengers. But, the rear side always has legroom problems, which is hell for passengers that sit there on long trips.
However, Lexus solves this by creating enough leg space for you to feel more relaxed during long trips. And, it didn't take up too much space in the cargo area. It has a 20.1 cubic feet area behind the rear seat. That is enough to put, at least, 7 carry-on suitcases in.
What we like the most is the storage bins number inside this new model. There are many of them, plus it comes with many charging ports. So, for heavy Smartphone and mobile gadget users, this feature is very helpful.
Other than that, we also see the panoramic sunroof, which gives you a great view for a summer drive. The upholstery uses comfortable leather material. We have no information about what kind of leather is, but it looks comfortable.
The seats also have a heater and cooler, which make them more comfortable for all seasons. We haven't checked it directly. But, the front seat seems to have a massage feature. We need confirmation from the manufacturer to find out more about this unique feature.
How about infotainment and connectivity? The new TX has several noticeable features in this category. First of all, it has a 14.0-inch display screen, which is the standard feature for Lexus products. It has a user-friendly interface, which allows you to operate and use various features easily.
For mobile gadget users, this car also is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Plus, you also can find a wireless charging pad for your Smartphone. It is a perfect feature for you who travel a lot.
As for the driver, you can find an in-dash navigation system. The interface looks very modern and easy to use. Moreover, the 12.3-inch digital gauge display is there instead of an analog system. It shows various things, such as speed, fuel status, and many more. We might get more information about it on its release date.
As for the audio feature, Lexus has not been revealed yet. However, we suspect that the new Lexus TX will have 10 speakers, similar to what you found in the 2024 Lexus GX. Moreover, we also got rumors about the addition of a 21-inch Mark Levinson premium stereo system. This stereo system will come as an optional feature. This feature improves the quality of the stereo system and the whole entertainment system greatly.
Lastly, we also find a new latch door system on this model. It's a unique digital latch door. It uses a new e-Latch system. This new latch system is replacing the mechanical handle. It comes in a push-button system, so you can open the door easier.
The Safety Features
To keep you safe, Lexus adds several safety features to the 2024 Lexus Tx. The standard safety features you can find on all Lexus models are also available for this new model. It is the Lexus Safety System+ 3.0.
The Lexus Safety System+ includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and pedestrian detection. It also has a proactive driving assistance feature. It will alert the driver when this car's distance from other vehicles or persons is too close.
As for parking purposes, it also has an advanced parking system. It helps you to do various parking types, such as parallel and perpendicular parking. It saves time to get the new TX in the right position at the parking area.
Other than that, the new Lexus TX also has a Drive Connect system. It is a subscription-based feature, which is compatible with the traffic jam assist system. It assists you to brake and keep the car distance in heavy traffic situations or low-speed conditions.
We have no information about whether this new car has passed the test by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). You might have to need further information from Lexus. Or, maybe, you can get it at the 2024 Lexus TX release date.
2024 Lexus TX Specification, Engine, and Performance
Each model has a different type of engine and performance. The first mode, the TX 350, uses a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. This engine produces 275 horsepower. To control this much horse pull, Lexus adds an eight-speed automatic transmission. As for its transmission system, you will get either a front-wheel or all-wheel-drive of your choice.
As for the TX 500h F Sports, Lexus give it a similar engine to the TX 350. It has the standard all-wheel-drive system. This model comes with a hybrid-assist system. Thanks to this system, it boosts its output up to 366 horsepower. However, it doesn't use the eight-speed transmission. Instead of an eight-speed, Lexus uses the six-speed automatic transmission on this model.
The last one is the TX 550h+ model. This model is the most powerful in this series. Lexus uses a 3.5-liter V6 engine on this model. This engine produces 406 horsepower with all-wheel-drive as its standard drivetrain. It also is available in various automatic transmissions. According to rumors, this model also comes with a hybrid engine. We need to wait for Lexus to release more information about this option later.
However, we can predict things about this plug-in hybrid on TX550h+. We expect it will have enough battery capacity to make this new SUV model run for about 33 miles. Then, you need to recharge it. Once again, we need to wait for the release of the battery size, charging time, and official range, which maybe will be available at its release date.
As for the engine fuel economy, we also haven't got its information yet. However, Lexus revealed that you can expect the TX 350 model will have around 21 mpg. The TX 500h and TX 550h+ will have respectively 24 mpg and 30 mpg. Those numbers are only estimations. So, we might need to test it directly to see the real number. If you want to know more about the new Lexus TX model's fuel economy, you can visit the EPA's website.
Price and Release Date
Lexus has not released the exact release date for 2024 Lexus TX. However, they announced that this model will be available on the market in fall 2023. The released model for that time will be the TX 350 and TX500h model. As for the TX 550h+ model, it will be released at a later date. We will find out more about the release date for all models sooner or at least before November.
The price for each model also has not been revealed yet. But, we can make estimations based on the previous model in a similar SUV category. Here is the price estimation for the new Lexus TX:
- TX 350 – around $50,000 (est.)
- TX 350 Premium – around $55,000 (est.)
- TX 350 Luxury – around $60,000 (est.)
- TX 500h F Sport Performance – around $65,000 (est.)
- TX 550h+ Premium – around $70,000 (est.)
- TX 550h+ Luxury – around $75,000 (est.)
We do not recommend the best model yet, according to the trim we predict will be available for each model. Premium and Luxury trim is available on most models, so it could become the option many buyers will choose. But, until we get the official information from Lexus about the trim and its model, you should keep holding yourself from ordering.
As the model that will be released at the end of this year, the 2024 Lexus TX will face many competitors in the SUV market. It focuses on the SUV family category. This new TX will face strong contenders from top brands, such as Lincoln Aviator or BMW X7, expected to get a new redesign exterior.
Alpina XB7 is also another contender in the SUV market. It offers luxurious features, higher-end performance, and top features. Mercedes-Benz is also in this competition with its new GLS series released in 2024. Mazda also is another brand Lexus needs to pay attention to. They will release the new CV-90, a similar three-row SUV with hybrid powertrains like the 2024 Lexus TX.
Yet, the new Lexus TX will have advantages over other brands. It is because of the several systems it has. It is not limited to the fuel-based engine, but you also get hybrid and PHEV models for the 550h+ TX model.
We think Lexus is ready to conquer the SUV market next year. The new 2024 Lexus Tx has everything you need from an SUV. So, it is interesting how this model will perform after its release date.
