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.
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.
An enviable reputation for world-class comfort, impeccable construction and class-leading value have established the Lexus LS as a prominent player in the world of large luxury sedans for over two decades. As a brand flagship, 2014's Lexus LS 460 is chock-full of the latest and greatest safety, comfort and multimedia technologies available. Last year's revamp infused a new sense of style and dynamism into the LS lineup, as evidenced in the sportier F-Sport variant and performance-oriented LS 600h L hybrid. Although it maintains the lowest ownership costs in the category, the Lexus LS is every bit the equal of pricier European rivals like the BMW 7 Series, Audi A8, Porsche Panamera and the all-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
