Salon de Detroit has been the appointment chosen by Lexus to introduce one of its new most awaited. This is the Lexus LS, a new generation of the sedan of representation of the japanese brand. Currently only have shown us a teaser showing its structure. Do not forget that this model will use the modular platform GA-L, which is also used by the sporty Lexus LC.
Although one can not fully appreciate your appearance in the teaser, is expected to come inspired by the Lexus LF-FC was presented last year. The aggressive grille, the sharp headlights or the great drivers in the rear could be some of its signs of identity. The new LS would be like an LC of greater dimensions and precisely with this model share quite a few more things, it is rumored that its interior or its mechanics.
Lowered the hood of the Lexus LS may be the same aspirated V8 5.0-liter with 477 BHP of power and automatic transmission with ten speeds. Also the mechanical hybrid, which combines the V6 engine of 3.5 liters and an electric to get 359 HP. Another of the doubts is the kind of traction that you will need, as with both mechanical the LC is rear-wheel drive. In principle that is kept in the LS, although in the future it could be offered with all-wheel drive.
The prototype LF-FC target was the hydrogen with your fuel cell, but this propulsion would be ruled out for the moment. Although they are still assumptions, and we will have to wait for the official information from Lexus, that will come soon. The date chosen for your presentation is the next, January 9, 2017, same day in the which will open its doors the Salon of Detroit.
