Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
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, Lexus introduces Lexus Enform with Safety Connect telematics as standard equipment; also new is an updated navigation system featuring casual language recognition software. Revisions to the LS 600h's grille, front bumper and tail lights mark the exterior changes, while a reconfigured hybrid battery pack creates a more accommodating trunk.
In addition to boasting the world's first eight-speed automatic transmission with a manual sequential shift teamed with a new 4.6-liter V8, the LS460 L is Lexus' first long-wheelbase model, boosting the line into the heady stratosphere of an exclusive club that includes the BMW 750 Li, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Jaguar XJ8 and Audi A8 L.
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.
