It’s a hair-pulling week for Lexus families. On Tuesday, the brand released a teaser of an all-new model called the TX, believed to be a three-row companion to Toyota’s new Grand Highlander.

Details are thin, but expect the new GX to finally ditch its 301-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8, the last such engine in Lexus’ SUV portfolio; even the LX swapped its V-8 for a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 for 2022.

It’s reasonable to expect features like the two-speed transfer case, locking center differential and active anti-roll system to remain.

Maybe the choice between three-row Lexus SUVs won’t be so hard after all. The TX and GX are shaping up to be about as similar as steak and ice cream. Come to think of it, both sound good …
