22 March 2011

Lexus will launch a new concept car at next month’s New York motor show that’s expected to preview the firm’s all-new GS saloon.

Lexus has revealed few details on the new concept, other than that it will be called LF-Gh and will be “a glimpse into the future of Lexus design”. It will be revealed on 19th April in New York on the eve of the show.

The new GS is due in 2012 and will again share its smaller IS sibling, a replacement for which is also due in 2012. Both will feature new running gear and platform dimensions, which are understood to include a wider track, but similar wheelbase for the IS and a slightly stretched wheelbase for the GS.

With the new CT hatchback entering the range below the IS, there’s understood to be room to push both models up-market in terms of cabin space and overall dimensions.

Engines are tipped to mirror today’s cars, with the GS majoring on the V6-powered petrol hybrid, with capacity tipped to go up to 4-litres, while the IS could add a four-cylinder petrol-based hybrid.
