All-New Lexus TX Unveiled, Plug-in Powertrain Offered


The new Lexus TX has been unveiled and will be the first Lexus sport utility to include a plug-in hybrid powertrain option. The three-row SUV includes three powertrain choices and Lexus’ new Lexus Safety System+ 3.0.

The 2024 Lexus TX is built on the GA-K platform, which it will share with the RX and NX models. Two electrified powertrains are offered, including a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid model. Towing is rated at 5,000 pounds with all three powertrain options. Seating for up to seven is available with all three as well.

The hybrid powertrain is a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine combined with electric motors, designated as the TX550h model. A similar TX500h F Sport Performance model uses the same powertrain. This parallel hybrid system provides 366 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard. Motors at both front and rear axles create the “Direct4” AWD system.

The plug-in hybrid system, designated TX550h+, is also AWD by default. It utilizes a 3.5-liter V6 engine and 404 total horsepower. Estimated all-electric range is 33 miles. Charging is via a J1772 plug and Toyota includes a 120-volt cable with the TX with a 240V plug as optional. Toyota has not specified battery size or charging times.
