For luxury SUVs and crossovers segment, Lexus is one of the leaders. They are working on various models and one of their products is 2017 Lexus TX. It is their big project as a new mid-size crossover. As the division of Toyota, this car will be produced to offer three rows of seats. The design is very competitive to deal with Audi Q7, Infiniti QX60 and other SUVs. It is expected that the debut will be started in the next year as a new 2017 TX.
2017 Lexus TX Platform
2017 Lexus TX will come out as all-new models and it is still hard to get all information about it. We have some tweaks from unofficial reliable sources. It is mentioned that this car will not go with the popular RX platform since it is built as a three rows of seats and the platform is hard to be adjusted for this layout. We predict that the platform could be borrowed from Toyota Highlander. It will be XU50 version of K-platform for this car that will meet the demand of new crossover. Even it is possible for Lexus to offer it by using the new N platform from Toyota which is used for sedans including GS and IS sedans for 2017 Lexus TX.
2017 Lexus TX Engine
2017 Lexus TX would be great if it could be presented with the support of petrol and hybrid models. The basic version could be released with the presence of VTEC SOHC V6 engine and 3.5 liter that is capable to provide the amount of output about 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. This engine will be mated to eight-speed auto transmission. It is also important for the company to release the hybrid model to cover the demand and to keep their market position. However, there is no confirmation yet given by the official.
2017 Lexus TX Release Date and Price
It seems that Lexus is still working on it and they might have big discussion for what they could give in this latest edition. On the other hands, we have big expectation that it could be released sometime in the next year. We do not know its precise date for the premiere and it goes the same for its price tag. Many reliable sources predicted that the cost will not go more than $60,000. It will not be easy for the car to be the winner in the market since its competitors are quite strong.
