2016 Lexus TX Rumors And Speculations
The end of this year might be really exciting, not just because all the already announced premieres which are scheduled for this fall, but also because we could find out more about the 2016 Lexus TX. Toyota has plans to offer a luxury seven-seater SUV, which will be able to compete with other luxury SUVs. The 2016 Lexus TX will probably be based on the current five-seater RX, but they will have to make some changes in order to make it comfortable enough for three rows of seats. This luxury brand already had some of the distinctive seven-seaters, but this one will be a step into the future. Yes, it is expected to be based on the current RX, but it should also bring a lot of novelties and contemporary spirit. We could expect this SUV to come a little bit larger, with more luxury and comfort and with some styling cues borrowed from the other Lexus models. Of course, there’s no need to insist on announcing high-end technology and premium materials which will be among the most important features of the 2016 Lexus TX, since every current Lexus’ improvement is actually an enhancement of the current level of comfort and luxury.
2016 Lexus TX Exterior And Interior
The 2016 Lexus TX is expected to be very spacious. Thanks to the size of the current RX, they won’t have much trouble to fit additional two seats, but they will have to stretch the chassis a little bit more. It seems that this SUV will inherit some of the Toyota Highlander’s genes with platform suited to its size. Having in mind what kind of platform this SUV will have, we can assume that it will have a front wheel drive and that an all wheel drive will be offered as an option. The exterior of the 2016 Lexus TX will heavily rely on the current RX’s design, but it will come with more sleek body, which will have more of the gentle curves. It should look more dynamic. This doesn’t necessary mean that its aerodynamic coefficient will be better, but with more powerful appearance this SUV will probably have improved aerodynamics, too. Since the 2016 Lexus TX is a luxury SUV, it will certainly offer an impressive level of comfort inside. With top-notch systems and gadgets, as well as high-quality materials, the cabin of this seven-seater is expected to be one of the most desirable interiors within its segment.
Expected Powertrains Of 2016 Lexus TX SUV
Some sources said that the 2016 Lexus TX will come with both internal combustion gas engine and a hybrid powertrain. It won’t be unexpected if this luxury SUV comes with a 3.5-liter V-6 gas engine under its hood, the same one used for the RX. This powerplant generates 270 horsepower, but its power output may be increased. This engine will probably be mated with an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed automatic transmission. The power is expected to be transmitted to the front wheels on the base version, while there will probably be an all-wheel drive version as an option. The 2016 Lexus TX hybrid should be powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and a pair of electric motors. This combination will have overall power output between 300 and 340 horsepower. All of this power will be sent to the front wheels, while the rear wheels will have their additional electric motor, according to some sources. Of course, there’s always a possibility that some other engine finds its way under the hood of this vehicle.
2016 Lexus TX Release Date
The 2016 Lexus TX is expected to be released by the end of 2015, but we shouldn’t be surprised if this luxury SUV becomes available sooner than expected.
