Lexus has previewed a possible future flagship crossover for the brand at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

Called the Lexus LF-1 Limitless Concept, it might hint at what the next-generation Lexus LX could look like, or it could be an entirely new addition to the brand’s lineup.

But considering Lexus is aiming to have every model be available as a hybrid or fully electric by 2025, it’s likely the production LF-1 Limitless will be electrified.

Inside the concept is an ultra luxurious interior filled with high-tech features. A touchpad can be found in the leather-covered center console, while a four-dimensional navigation system can also act as a concierge for occupants.
