Lexus is developing a new flagship vehicle that will likely be a SUV or a crossover. Lexus Division General Manager Jeff Bracken told reporters this week that Lexus is planning the launch of a second high-end vehicle.
This could also be a hint towards a production version of the Lexus LF-LC coupe."It doesn't have to be a sedan," Bracken said, igniting speculation as to what form the new model will take. SUVs and crossovers are hot. Truck-based SUVs can still be quite successful, as Land Rover and Cadillac have proven, but Lexus only plays in the high-end space with the soon-to-be-replaced LX and the division is already scrambling to add more rows to its existing crossovers in an effort to fill gaps in its lineup.
Whatever it is, it will be revealed in January.
