The Ultimate Luxury Sedan

May 24th, 2016 by

The Lexus LS is the ultimate luxury sedan and the flagship vehicle for the Lexus line.  Unrivaled luxury and unrelenting performance, the Lexus LS has been one step ahead of other luxury vehicles since the day it launched and the 2016 LS line is no exception.  The 2016 Lexus LS is available in three different models: the LS standard wheelbase, the LS 460L- longer wheelbase and LS 460 F SPORT.

All three model options offer 386-horsepower and V8 engine along with a host of modern and luxury features including: 12.3-inch display screen with updated graphics for Navigation and multimedia, Advanced Voice Command, Complimentary HD Traffic and Weather, 10-speaker premium Lexus Sound System, Bluetooth phone and audio technology, Siri Eyes Free Mode, 18-inch alloy wheels, Moon Roof, SmartAccess with push button Start/Stop, Back up Camera, Intuitive Parking Assist, Drive Mode Select with ECO, Normal and Sport Modes, Lexus Memory System, Power Door Closers, LED taillamps, LED Daytime Running Lights and 16-way power driver’s seat.


Every LS built for our area (Texas) will include certain “standard added options”.  These standard added options actually make the starting package level on the LS 460 to be around $77,409.  This MSRP LS includes the Comfort Package, the Cold Weather Package, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, 19-inch Wheels, Heated Wood Steering Wheel and Accessory Package: Cargo Net, Trunk Mat, Wheel Locks, Key Gloves and Rear Bumper Applique.

The standard wheel base LS460 is also available in a more fully equipped option.  This LS 460 typically lists for around $82,589 and includes all of the features listed above in addition to LED Headlamps with Intelligent High-Beams and Washers, Semi-Aniline Leather and Alcantara Headliner Upgrade, Mark Levinson Sound with 19-speakers, Pre-Collision System with All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and a slightly different Heated Wood Steering Wheel with Leather Center Pad.

The Lexus LS already provides one of the most spacious interior cabins, but the longer wheel base on the LS460L further spoils it’s passengers with exceptional rear legroom.  The LS 460L offers an additional 5 inches in overall length and 4.8-inches in wheelbase compared to the standard LS model and although the Lexus LS460L can be built in a few different ways, the most common build for the LS460L lists for $87,249.  This $87K price-point LS460L has all of the same features as the Luxury Package LS detailed above: 19-inch wheels, All-Weather Package, Blind Spot Monitor, LED Headlamps, Mark Levinson, Pre-Collision System, Semi-Anline Leather, etc.
