The all-new version of the flagship Lexus LS model will be unveiled at the in January.

The reveal of the fifth-generation saloon at the Detroit Auto Show will come exactly 28 years after the first LS 400 launched the Lexus brand at the same show.

Details of the new Lexus LS are currently scarce, its makers only saying that it will offer a bold new look, with a coupe-like silhouette, while still boasting plenty of interior space.

However the car is expected to closely follow the LF-FC concept unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.

   

The car will be built on an extended version of Lexus’s new global architecture for luxury vehicles (GA-L) rear-wheel drive platform, which also underpins the forthcoming Lexus LC luxury coupe. Lexus adds that the LS will ‘feature visionary technology.’

The production Lexus LS is expected on sale in 2018, as a rival to the likes of the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Powertrain options will include a hybrid unit with more than 500hp on tap. In 2019 the car could gain a hydrogen engine, using the technology developed by parent brand Toyota most recently in the Mirai.

The Lexus LC is widely expected to be based on the LF-FC concept shown at Tokyo in 2015.
