ALL-NEW PLATFORM

Lexus LS Options shown
The 2018 LS shares a front-engine platform with the high-performance LC coupe. The all-new front-midship design delivers exceptional balance and allows for a lower overall height and driver position, enhancing handling thanks to a lower center of gravity. The result is sport-inspired stability, responsiveness and, ultimately, one of the most confident and engaging driving experiences we’ve ever created.

ADAPTIVE VARIABLE AIR SUSPENSION

Lexus LS Options shown
Numerous next-generation Lexus technologies work together for a unique approach to comfort and control. The Adaptive Variable Suspension features dampers that are continuously variable through 650 levels, allowing you to stiffen or soften the drive for enhanced response or comfort, based on your preferred drive mode. The all-new front and rear suspension supports were created from cast aluminum, drastically improving handling stability and allowing the driver to receive direct feedback through the steering wheel.

ALL-WHEEL DRIVE

Available on every LS model, full-time all-wheel drive delivers engine power to all four wheels, and a TORSEN® limited-slip center differential* efficiently distributes it between the front and rear axles, helping optimize traction, handling and control in a variety of driving conditions.
