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.
Base 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.
