  • It will slot itself alongside the flagship LS sedan and LC coupe.

  • May very well replace the current and aging Lexus LX.


Lexus SUVs are some of the best-selling in their respective segments, with a few exceptions. The compact NX a quite the star however none shine brighter than the RX which remains one of the best-selling luxury SUVs, period. The same cannot be said for the GX and LX, both spruced up Toyota trucks. Now, while they are not bad products, they’re not exactly what modern luxury SUV buyers are looking. The upcoming Lexus LQ will be exactly that.

The current Lexus LX, the standing top-dog SUV at Lexus, is from another time. And although it is not without its charm, it simply cannot compete with the likes of a modern BMW X7 or Mercedes-Benz GLS. The Lexus LQ, based on the LF-1 Limitless concept unveiled two years ago in Detroit, will gain loads of technology and powertrains that are more with the times.

Car And Driver reports that the production LQ will be powered by the LS 500’s twin-turbocharged 416-horsepower 3.5-litre V6 or the 500H’s 354-horsepower hybrid V6. There’s also a possibility that an F Performance version could see a 600-horsepower twin-turbo V8 in the engine bay.

Considering that the 2020 Lexus LC and LS start at just over $103,000 and that the 2020 LX goes for $111,300, we expect the LQ will sport a $100,000 price tag to start.
