Lexus LF-1 flagship crossover concept teased

06 Décembre 2017

The Japanese luxury brand is planning to make some waves at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show with a new large-scale SUV. The LF-1 is being described as a "crossover with no limits".

At the moment, it's the Lexus LX wears that title in the lineup, an old-school SUV built on a truck chassis and that benefits from a 5.7-litre V8 as well as a four-wheel drive system. PR waffle for sure, but the LF-1 represents Lexus' first attempt to bat against the likes of the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Aside from an enormous glass roof, we also note individual screens for the rear-seat occupants.

The concept was designed by a California-based team of Lexus designers and is claimed to "redefine the boundaries of luxury", suggesting a considerably more high-end approach than the premium offerings now produced by the brand.

The carmaker is withholding as much information as it can for now, merely stating the concept "heralds a new genre of luxury crossover" and that it "seeks to redefine the boundaries of luxury".
