The next generation Lexus LS is all ready to make its first appearance at the 2017 Detroit auto show scheduled to take place in the month of January.
The news was confirmed by the brand and with this announcement, we have at least two dozen new models heading to the Detroit show next year. The original LS which was launched in 1989 choose the same auto expo to make its big appearance and it is no wonder the company choose to do the same again after so many years. The powertrain in the car has been revamped and it features a shiny diesel variant and a hybrid variant, made to offer enough choices for buyers.
Spy shots of the new Lexus LS emerged in the past but the camouflage made sure it is difficult to find the actual design. The official reveal should put a lot of questions to rest and show the car in the metal. According to Lexus, the car is equipped with visionary technology. It is constructed on top of the G-L luxury vehicle architecture specially designed for the Lexus LC 500h.
The spy pictures did give us a glimpse of the car’s front fascia, the drivetrain and the suspension used in it. From the little details that we could make out, the Lexus LS shares a lot of design elements with the LC model. It includes the taillight design, curved, sharp headlights, bumpers and large alloy wheels. All these details were peeking out of all the huge covering Lexus had on their new model. At the Detroit auto show, it should be much easier as we will be seeing the car for the first time without any disguise.
The LF FC variant was revealed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show and it has been the only benchmark that could be used to know what the LS will bring to the stores. The existing model is quite outdated by now because the GS and IS had undergone some major changes. They look modern, sleek and the revamped Lexus LS is about to follow the same pattern so as to look appealing to young buyers.
Lexus LS testing was carried out along with the BMW 7 series to see how it performs. According to the company’s official statement, they are going to revamp the car to offer a more dynamic driving experience. The powertrains include V6 and V8 petrol engines along with diesel as well as hybrid options.
