Information is in short supply at this stage but Lexus does reveal that the concept is the work of its CALTY design studio in Newport Beach, California, and that it's a "flagship model that seeks to redefine the boundaries of luxury".

Lexus does offer the LX flagship SUV, but for buyers looking for something a bit softer, Lexus may soon add a new flagship crossover to its lineup that would better compete with other luxury crossovers.

We won't have long to wait before Lexus fills us in, though, with the LF-1 Limitless set to be unveiled at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, which runs from January 13-29.

Look closer and the large SUV shows off its rear seat's wide screen entertainment system.

If it's the latter, expect the LF-1 to combine a 220kW/348m 3.5-litre V6 with a powerful 132kW/300Nm electric motor.

Any production version of the LF-1 would presumably slot-in above the RX at the top of the Lexus SUV range, providing an alternative to premium coupe-SUVs like BMW's X6 and the Mercedes GLE Coupe.

That did come with some advantages - the Toyota model is renowned for its great reliability and supreme ruggedness, but those aren't the type of qualities that Lexus customers are most interested in a vehicle.

That's as much as we've been told for now, so stay tuned around January 15 next year to find out more and to see the new concept in all its glory.
