Lexus might expand their high-riding vehicle family with a new flagship model that’s aimed at the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin DBX et al.
This piece of information comes from Japan’s Spyder7, which claims that Toyota’s luxury brand might unveil it during a major automotive event in 2020, before launching it the year after.Believed to have been previewed by the LF-1 Limitless Concept, the yet-to-be-named SUV will allegedly sit on the TNGA platform, and be 5,000 mm (197 in) long, 1,980 mm (78 in) wide and 1,590 mm (63 in) tall, with a 2,974 mm (117 in) wheelbase, which would make it slightly shorter, narrower and lower than the Lamborghini Urus.Also Read: Lexus Execs Want A Production Version Of The LF-1 Limitless Concept Really BadBase models will reportedly be powered by the LS 500’s twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6, albeit with a tad more power, at 430 PS (424 hp / 316 kW). The same engine might be coupled to a couple of electric motors for a hybrid variant.As for the top-of-the-line flavor, this is said to use a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine. This is the unit that might power the rumored LS F sedan, and in Lexus’ high-riding vehicle, it’ll allegedly produce an impressive 670 PS (661 hp / 493 kW). That would make it 20 PS (20 hp / 15 kW) more powerful than the Lamborghini Urus, which sprints to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds and tops out at 305 km/h (190 mph).If such a super SUV gets the green light for production, it will offer a very luxurious interior, jammed with the brand’s latest technologies.Note: Lexus LF-1 Limitless Concept pictured
