The little F-Sport badge on the tail of this 2019 Lexus LS 500 changes everything. While one can still chauffeur grandma to church […] The post 2019 Lexus LS 500 F-Sport Review – A Peculiar Development in Big Sedan Land appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

‘Product of Mastery’: 5 Questions With Lexus Marketing VP Cooper Ericksen

To introduce the next generation of its bestselling sedan, Lexus launched a new national marketing campaign, “A Product of Mastery,” that showcases the sophistication and performance of the new 2019 Lexus ES. There’s a lot to work with: One 30-second TV ad, for instance, focuses intently on the stitching and ventilation holes in the front seats. The new version of the vehicle also includes Amazon Alexa connectivity and, in a Lexus first, Apple CarPlay compatibility. The Toyota-owned brand’s mos...

Lexus Got What It Hoped for With the New LS – At Least for Now

Every large, traditional Toyota and Lexus sedan seems to have hit that point in its lifespan where drastic surgery is needed to keep up with the younger crowd. Were these staid sedans people, they’d be milling about in the seating area of a local plastic surgeon’s office. The first model to bend to Toyota’s desire […] The post Lexus Got What It Hoped for With the New LS – At Least for Now appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Lexus ES Sporting Modish Metal for Seventh Generation

The next-generation Lexus ES will debut at the Beijing auto show this month, which is fitting. China knows luxury and appears to be preserving high-end sedans while Americans continue to turn their backs on them in droves. Domestic sales of the ES have reflected that.

2018 Lexus LS 500 First Test Review: Devil is In the Details

The Lexus LS has been taking it to the German triumvirate since the days when Audi was best-known for something it would rather forget. The first LS 400 changed the luxury dynamic with its unimpeachable quality and refinement, but the LS family has never quite achieved the cachet of some of its competitors. The outgoing model was no exception to that, still following the same formula of quality first and design second. This new 2018 Lexus LS, though, hopes to break the streak and shock the Germa...

2018 Lexus LS First Drive: Not My Father’s LS

After more than a decade of driving two Lexus LS sedans, my father switched brands in the late 2000s despite his trouble-free ownership experience. After he left the brand for something new, the LS became a snoozy yet dependable value-alternative to the class-leading Mercedes-Benz S-Class. With the ambitiously redesigned 2018 Lexus LS, that’s no longer the case. When it goes on sale in February 2018, can the new 2018 LS surprise and delight buyers who are new to the brand without alienating loya...

Toyota Expects Lexus LS Sedan Sales to Take Off Again, but Not Nearly to Historic Levels

Timing is tough. Toyota’s Lexus luxury marque launched the fourth-generation Lexus LS for the 2007 model year, just prior to an economic collapse that was followed up by an anti-car/pro-SUV shift. Lexus, which averaged more than 25,000 annual U.S. sales of its LS flagship sedan during its third generation and then topped 35,000 sales in 2007, […] The post Toyota Expects Lexus LS Sedan Sales to Take Off Again, but Not Nearly to Historic Levels appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ask Jack: The Man Who Flexes From WRXes To Lexus?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: everything, and I mean everything, is utterly and absolutely context-dependent. It’s literally true on the atomic level, where we cannot accurately measure both position and velocity at the same time. It’s true at the quantum level, where “quantum entanglement” governs behavior that is currently beyond our […] The post Ask Jack: The Man Who Flexes From WRXes To Lexus? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Back in the day, a properly large luxury sedan was just that — large and luxurious. No sporting pretensions were found, as any special package simply piled on the brougham. However, Lexus has said no to a padded roof or opera lights for its newest full-size package, as it’s given the F Sport treatment to the new […] The post NYIAS 2017: 2018 Lexus LS 500 F Sport Adds ‘Driving Emotion’ (But No Extra Power) To Buttoned-Down Big Sedan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
