After a few years of wandering around, Lexus seems to have found a new groove now with the launch of the LC coupe, but also the NX crossover which showed the company could import some of that exciting design features into its SUV lineup as well.

Lexus has released a teaser that previews a new large SUV, ahead of the concept's official unveiling at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in January 2018.

The concept was designed by a California-based team of Lexus designers and is claimed to "redefine the boundaries of luxury", suggesting a considerably more high-end approach than the premium offerings now produced by the brand.

We thought the hint of a blue display might be a dashboard, but a zoom-and-enhance reveals what appears to be a pair of headrest-integrated rear seat entertainment screens. Expect it to influence all future models released by Lexus.

Lexas has announced a new crossover vehicle concept that will expand its crossover line into previously untouched territory.

Lexus describes the concept as a flagship model, suggesting that the auto, in production terms, would be an SUV coupé sitting above the range-topping RX, much like the positioning of the Audi Q8 in comparison with the Q7.

Information is in short supply at this stage but Lexus does reveal that the concept is the work of its CALTY design studio in Newport Beach, California, and that it's a "flagship model that seeks to redefine the boundaries of luxury". A plug-in hybrid option would be a first for Lexus, but we would not rule it out.
