According to a new report, the development of the V8 engine for the LF is taking longer than expected. According to the Japanese newspaper’s scoop team, the V8 engine hurdles will be overcome and the production model will debut in 2023. Another reason is the effect of Coronavirus on human resource movement. Lexus currently stops its SUV lineup at the Lexus RX. This is for customers who don’t like the Prado-derived Lexus GX or Land Cruiser-derived Lexus LX. The LF hybrid crossover will appeal to buyers who prefer soft and subtle designs, more sporty proportions, and greater efficiency.

Specs

The LF is an F-segment LS-type model that will sit on the same platform as the full-size luxury sedan – GA – L. The LF’s design base would be the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept, which was first shown at the Detroit Auto Show three years ago. You can expect a similar low-slung SUV/coupe design, with a strong face, long hood, cab-backward form, RWD drivetrain layout, urban-friendly dimensions, and a cab-forward shape. Best Car predicts that the Lexus LF will measure 5,250 mm in length, 1,900 mm in width, and 1,580 mm high, respectively. This is 206.7 in. 74.8 in. and 62.2 inches. These are imperial.
