UPDATE 6/6/23: Lexus has released more teaser photos of the TX showing its front end and glimpses of its interior. The exterior shot shows an interesting new interpretation of the Lexus spindle grille with body-color trim elements, while the interior photos show three rows of seats with second-row captain's chairs and a look at the TX's door panel. The new three-row SUV will debut June 8 alongside a new generation of the GX, which we've covered separately.
Lexus will reveal a new three-row SUV called the TX, and today the automaker shared the first photo of it. The cropped shot shows a side view of its rear quarter panel, giving us a look at its "floating" roof design as well as details of its body lines and the shape of its wheel arches.
While Lexus didn't release any other information about the upcoming TX, the new SUV is expected to ride on the same TNGA-K platform as the recently introduced Toyota Grand Highlander. Along with featuring three rows of seats, the TX will obviously boast an even more luxurious interior and Lexus's latest tech features. The most powerful Grand Highlander features a Hybrid Max powertrain with 362 horsepower, so it's possible that setup is also offered (or standard) on the TX.
This isn't the first time we've heard about the TX name. Back in 2021, rumors on a Reddit post as well as trademarks filed by Lexus helped give us an idea of what to expect. At the time, we found trademarks for TX350 and TX500h, which suggested the new model could be available with both gas-powered V-6 and hybrid versions.
There currently isn't any word on when the new Lexus TX will be officially revealed, however, we expect the company to pull the covers off sometime later this year. Much like how the Grand Highlander slots between the regular mid-size Toyota Highlander and the full-size, body-on-frame Sequoia, the TX will likely slot between the Lexus RX and the larger GX and LX SUVs.Looking to purchase a car?
