Not one, but two brand-new SUVs will make their premiere in the coming weeks thanks to Toyota’s luxury division, Lexus. The second-generation GX, which will continue to be a tough, luxurious off-roader built on a ladder frame, will be the first SUV to be unveiled in June. The second model to make its appearance in the upcoming months will be the brand-new TX three-row SUV.
New Lexus GX
The replacement for the Lexus GX SUV, which has been on sale in other countries for a while, will be unveiled next month. The SUV will have a conventional body on frame construction, but it will also be fully equipped with the newest off-road technology, part of which is taken from the most recent LX full-size SUV, as well as other top-notch luxury features. With some of these areas not receiving the Land Cruiser Prado, on which the GX is based, the outgoing GX has only been available in left-hand drive and is sold predominantly in North America and the Middle East.
This will change, though, since the new GX will also be produced with a right-hand drive configuration, and the model’s debut in countries like Australia and Japan, among others, has already been confirmed. Additionally, the future GX will probably share some body panels and underpinnings with the next-generation Land Cruiser Prado, which has not yet been announced.
New Lexus TX SUV
The brand-new Lexus TX will be a recent addition to Lexus’ extensive lineup of SUVs around the world. The current-generation Toyota Grand Highlander SUV will share its underpinnings, body panels, and interior components with this revolutionary monocoque SUV. The lone teaser image Lexus has given for the TX depicts the SUV’s rear quarter glass area, which features a D-pillar that has been blacked out and a sizable window.
The Lexus TX, a three-row competitor to vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz GLE and the Range Rover Sport, will be positioned above the RX SUV (already on sale in India). The Grand Highlander offers three different powertrain options: a 265 horsepower, four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine; a 245 horsepower, four-cylinder petrol-hybrid with FWD or AWD; and a top-spec, 362 horsepower, four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine with AWD that is also found in the Lexus RX. Although specific powertrain information has not yet been made public, reports claim that the TX will share this engine lineup.
While the new TX might not be arriving in India anytime soon, the new GX might. The NX, RX, and LX SUV lines are now offered by Lexus in the Indian market.
