Despite having released a brand new LS this very year, Lexus is determined to keep looking into the future. And, surprise, surprise -- that future is largely autonomous and fancy as all get-out.

Lexus has confirmed a new crossover concept for the Detroit Motor Show in January. That means the production model it might spawn won't necessarily be the largest model in the Lexus range , but it could very well be the most expensive.

LF-1 Limitless features a coupé-like roofline and rear light bar and is said to be a completely new niche Lexus has previewed a large SUV coupé model ahead of its Detroit motor show reveal early next year. The LF-1 Limitless concept takes the form of a

The Japanese company says the car, which is thought to signpost the design language of the new SUV, ‘seeks to redefine the boundaries of luxury’ and ‘heralds a new genre of luxury crossover vehicles’.

Specific details are few and far between, but a shadowy teaser image gives us a peek at the rear quarter of the concept car, showing off a split rear spoiler, tail lights running the width of the vehicle and a rakish rear window, as well as a burnt orange paint job and slightly dished alloy wheels.

The taillight in the teaser image looks like that of the current Lexus RX, but who knows what platform underpins the RX L. We should learn a lot more about the much anticipated three-row on November 29 at 10 am PST. Stay tuned.

Lexus has previewed a large SUV coupé model ahead of its Detroit motor show reveal early next year. The LF-1 Limitless concept takes the form of a high-riding SUV with a steeply raked rear screen, suggesting a coupé-like roofline. Super-luxury Range Rover two-door coupé under consideration.

It also looks as though a panoramic tinted glass roof stretches over the heads of the rear-seat passengers, while there’s a shard of silvery trim above the rear windows.

Lexus is coy about the car’s interior, but the blue screens visible in the image appear to be headrest-mounted rear-seat entertainment systems, suggesting that the car will focus heavily on in-car technology and passenger comfort.

It’s expected to be high-tech under the skin, too. The blue lighting around the Lexus badge on the bootlid suggests that the LF-1 may boast a hybrid powertrain – potentially based around the 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine found in the RX SUV, which currently tops the Lexus crossover range.

We won’t have long to wait before Lexus fills us in, though, with the LF-1 Limitless set to be unveiled at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, which runs from January 13-29.
