The Lexus LS 2018 will be presented in Detroit 2017


Teaser of the new Lexus LS 2018.

The Detroit Auto show 2017 will be the event in that Lexus finally unveil the fifth generation of his saloon banner, the new LS 2018. Model that precisely was the first of the brand for close to three decades, being released precisely in Detroit.

After studying the numerous mule test spotted these months, finally we can see the new LS 2018, which in this generation will be based on the new platform GA-L of the signature, variant elongated from the one used by the sports LC 500.

In the image unveiled by the brand, we can hardly imagine the final forms of the model, although it leaves us a glimpse of how it will be in front, and it seems that fits with what we mentioned in the last few months. The grill will have the usual hourglass shape, occupying all height of the front, and on the underside of the front bumper we found the air inlets in the form of a bow, finished off by a chrome trim lower.

forms that suggest the teaser are very similar to the LF-LC concept, a model that anticipated the new LS 2018, with a very sharp and sporty, that seems to be inherit the production version, which we’ll see in Detroit.

In terms of the chapter mechanic, we can expect big developments. On the one hand, the higher version could dispense block V8 in favor of a V6 twin-turbo with an output of around 420 HP. This would be accompanied by a four-cylinder engine and 2.0-liter supercharged version more basic and a V6 of 3.5 liters for the hybrid version, that would be two electric motors.

One of the main innovations of this new generation will be the future incorporation of a mechanical electric powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. This would be the first version of this type to reach this segment, although it would not be available from the start of the marketing of the model, but that would be a built-in time after they have reached the market.
