The Hall of Detroit has been the quotation chosen by Lexus to introduce us to one of their most anticipated. Is is of the Lexus LS, a new generation of the sedan’s representation of the brand Japanese. Of time only we have shown a teaser where appears its structure. It should not be forgotten that this model will use the platform modular GA-L, which is also used by the sporty Lexus LC.
Although not be can well appreciate the exterior in the teaser, is expected to come inspired by the Lexus LF-FC which was introduced last year. The aggressive Grill, them sharp headlight front or them large pilots back could be some of its signs of identity. The new LS would be as a LC of higher dimensions and precisely with this model will share enough more things, is rumored that their inside or their mechanical.
Fell the hood of the Lexus LS could be the same atmospheric V8 5.0 litre with 477 HP of power and the 10 speed automatic transmission. Also the mechanical hybrid that combines engine V6 of 3.5 litres and an electric to achieve 359 CV. Another concerns is the kind of traction that will have, since with both mechanical LC it is rear-wheel drive. In principle that will remain in the LS, though in the future it could offer with all-wheel drive.
The LF-FC prototype gambled on its fuel cell hydrogen, but this propulsion it would be ruled out for the moment. Although they are still assumptions and we will have to wait for official information from Lexus, that will come soon. The date chosen for your presentation is the next 9 of January of 2017, same day in which will open its doors the Salon of Detroit.
