The 2017 Detroit Auto Show debut of the next generation LS luxury sedan from Lexus has already been confirmed. With growing impatience from fans and enthusiasts to meet the new model, the automaker decided add a little more excitement as the 2017 Lexus LS teases before its Detroit Auto Show appearance.
The Teaser Image
In the teaser image released, the next generation of Lexus LS is situated in what appears to be a dark warehouse. Just like how other teaser images appear, this one did not show much of the car. In fact, half of the car is literally missing as the only things that can be seen are the front grille along with the frame and the driver's side front and rear tires and several other parts. The photo basically shows an X-Rayed Lexus LS since the outer body of the car is missing.
The Possible Powertrain
According to report from Autoblog, the next generation LS may share the same powertrain that the LC has given the fact that both models have the same chassis. The Lexus LC has two powertrains. One is the 5.0-liter V8 engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission capable of cranking out 471 horsepower. The other is a 3.5-liter V6 hybrid engine matched with a four-speed automatic transmission that can deliver 354 horsepower as reported. Of course, there is no way to confirm this until the next generation LS makes its debut early next year.
