Does the company have any exciting surprises up its sleeve?
Withseveral aging models due for a refresh, Lexus has just announcedthat it will bring out two new stars for an official unveiling atthis week's 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. However, the company has notprovided any details on what those models might be. As one of the world's most affluent car shows, the company could have some importantsurprises tucked away for the California show. As we reported the other day,the company is planning to add another flagship alongside the LS, but said itwould "define what it is in January."
The LS itself, however, might be a likely candidate. The latest updateto the model came in 2012 but has since been overshadowed by new competitorsfrom BMW and Mercedes. Also in 2012, Lexus unveiled thelatest update to the dated LX SUV, which continues to pride itself as being aluxury version of the Toyota Land Cruiser. Could we be introduced tosomething new in this area? Finally, with the GS F unveiled at this year'sDetroit Motor Show, it could be time for the rest of the GS family to catch upwith a refresh or redesign. Will Lexus wow us with something completely new, orsimply use this platform to play catch-up with its European competitors?
