Lexus previews flagship SUV with Detroit-bound LF-1 Limitless concept

08 December 2017

The Japanese luxury brand is planning to make some waves at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show with a new large-scale SUV.

Lexas has announced a new crossover vehicle concept that will expand its crossover line into previously untouched territory. No big surprise there; SUVs are kind of a big deal - literally and figuratively - in the modern automotive space.

Information is in short supply at this stage but Lexus does reveal that the concept is the work of its CALTY design studio in Newport Beach, California, and that it's a "flagship model that seeks to redefine the boundaries of luxury". We'll keep an eye out for more on this one. We can infer that the vehicle will feature steeply raked rear glass and a tail end design not dissimilar to that of the automaker's RX crossover. Highlights include taillights that stretch across the width of the vehicle's rear, a two-piece roof spoiler, a sculpted rear section, blue-illuminated badging and digital displays in the cabin.

Let's turn up the lights a bit to get a closer look at this dark teaser image.

Lexus is coy about the car's interior, but the blue screens visible in the image appear to be headrest-mounted rear-seat entertainment systems, suggesting that the auto will focus heavily on in-car technology and passenger comfort.

Lexus says it plans to unveil its concept for a "crossover with no limits" - labelled the LF-1 - at the beginning of January at the Detroit motor show.
