Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The 2015 Lexus LS gets an updated infotainment system this year that includes a navigation system with predictive traffic information. There's also a new smartphone app called Lexus Enform Remote, which lets you remotely start the vehicle or shut it off, lock or unlock the doors, and more.
A sharp-looking exterior refresh, an updated interior, some new technologies and countless less-visible tweaks help contemporize a platform carried over from the 2012 Lexus LS. One feature now missing is the LS's overly-complicated, seldom-used auto-park feature. Auto park, you will not be missed.
With earthquakes followed by a tsunami in 2011, it's understandable that Toyota and Lexus may have been focused elsewhere. To that end, there's a new color, Nebula Gray Pearl, replacing Smoky Granite Mica. This is the sixth year for this LS, the fourth generation.
For 2010, the LS 460 receive a slight freshening of the head lamps, grille and tail lamps, as well as new Safety Connect and Lexus Enform telematics. A new Sport Package adds a sport-tuned air suspension, Brembo brakes, 19-inch forged wheels and an aero body kit.
The most technically advanced Lexus ever, the LS 460 boasts the world's first eight-speed automatic transmissionwith sequential-shift featureand a new 4.6-liter V8 that employs both port and direct fuel-injection systems. Its first long-wheelbase model, the LS 460 L, puts Lexus into a very exclusive group of automakers offering "executive-class" sedans.
The 2015 Lexus LS maintains and expands this full-size luxury sedan's enviable reputation for world-class comfort, impeccable construction and class-leading value. For more than two decades, those values have kept the Lexus LS a prominent player on the premium luxury-sedan stage. For 2015 that continues, as Lexus offers the standard LS 460, sporty LS 460 F-Sport, long-wheelbase LS 460 L, and the powerful LS 600h L hybrid. Most important, the Lexus LS family offers a significant value against more expensive cars like the BMW 7 Series and Audi A8, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Porsche Panamera. Value and luxury are strange bedfellows, but the low cost of ownership boasted by the Lexus LS is a strong selling point for sensible types who are ready to splurge.View Lexus LS vehicles for sale near you.

"LS460 F Sport I absolutely love this Lexus. A friend said it was a perfect car-I agree. Quiet, comfortable and sporty all in one-what's not to like. I think if you take a test drive you will agree-make sure it is the F Sport"

"Looking for a perfect vehicle? This is it. Ride exceptional, power good (even with AWD), fit and finish perfect. Hated buying new car at premium price but it's been worth it. You can't go wrong. Have had Mercedes S500. Cabin in LS much quieter and don't have to continually fix annoying (and expensive) problems."

"This is my second LS 460. My first was owned for 6 years without a problem. This vehicle has had a problem with the A/C system from the get-go whereby it has a horrible odor when the vehicle is started (Reminiscent of the Seinfeld episode titled "The Beast"). I have had the vehicle in for service 3 times and the vehicle has only 900 miles. The service department has been unable to correct the problem and states that Lexus Corporately does not have a "fix" (solution) for the dealers to use to repair the issue. Therefore, the dealer is trying various solutions such as changing a/c filters, ozone, antibacterial mists, and line flushing with no avail. When I asked the service department to replace the entire a/c system (condenser, evaporator, compressor, lines, coolant, etc), they stated that they would not be able to because it would not be an authorized fix by Lexus corporately and would not be covered under warranty. I spoke to the General Manager of the dealership today who gave me a very discomforting answer. He stated that the dealership only sells the cars and services the cars but does not manufacture the cars. He stated that the best solution he could have from his level would be to buy the car back from me, at a price less than I paid, and sell me a new vehicle. Unfortunately, I purchased a 2013 at the end of the model year and now only 2014's are available which means that the 2013's have depreciated and the 2014's are not being discounted which would require that I come out of pocket many, many thousands of dollars to use his solution. It is quite disturbing that I am caught between a rock and a hard-place because the dealer is pointing fingers at the manufacturer but there is no way to deal with the manufacturer when purchasing a vehicle. Florida has a Lemon Law but the General Manager is stating that this would not apply as the problem is not mechanical; it is considered "cosmetic". I did not notice the problem with the vehicle upon the first test drive because the vehicle is brought around by someone and by the time the test drive is taken the odor disappears. While the odor goes away after a couple of minutes of using the a/c, the initial odor is horrific to the point that a client I was taking last Sunday asked me if I had neglected to use antiperspirant/deodorant. This is not what I was expecting when purchasing an $80,000 vehicle."
