Vehicle Profile: 2020 Lexus LS
A luxury sedan that’s loaded with technology
Spacious, luxurious and teeming with gorgeous handcrafted design, the Lexus LS is a luxury sedan that offers solid driving dynamics and plenty of muscle. It’s hard to improve on the already-amazing Lexus LS, and the vehicle maintains its powertrain, styling and technological capabilities from the 2019 model. Here’s a look at what else you’ll find on this elegant vehicle.
Get the balance of performance and efficiency that you crave when you choose between two powertrain options on the 2020 Lexus LS. It comes standard with a 416 horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo engine that delivers 442 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to its silky-smooth 10-speed electronically controlled Direct-Shift automatic transmission, this powerful dynamo can earn an impressive 30 mpg on the highway.* For even greater efficiency, choose the hybrid model, which delivers a hearty 354 horsepower alongside 33 highway mpg.* This powertrain is complete with high-output, permanent-magnet, electric-drive motors that enable it to run an EV mode. Whether you choose a traditional powertrain or the hybrid variant, the Lexus LS lets you pick between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel arrangements.
With its aggressive stance and low center of gravity, sporty styling is woven into this vehicle’s DNA. You don’t have to hit the racetrack to appreciate the smooth ride delivered by its high-tech Adaptive Variable Suspension. It even comes standard with high-performance front brakes with six-piston aluminum calipers and ventilated rotors of efficient cooling. To top it all off, the LS greets you with unmistakable LED headlamps that evoke the Lexus logo. Upgrade the LS further by choosing an F SPORT model, which stands apart from the crowd with bold, 20-inch Dark Graphite wheels, an aggressively sculpted front fascia and a sleek mesh grille.
Comfort and luxuries
Everything inside the handcrafted cabin of the Lexus LS is designed for superior comfort and breathtaking aesthetics. For a gorgeous cabin unlike any other, choose the sparkling Kiriko hand-cut decorative glass inserts, Art Wood trim and sumptuous semi-aniline leather. But the Lexus LS has more than gorgeous looks — it can keep you comfortable with the four-zone climate concierge, which monitors and maintains a comfortable temperature for each passenger. It uses a system of 20 ducts to provide fast, precise comfort to both front and back seat passengers. Melt away the day’s stress with the available seven-setting massage function and get lost in your favorite music with the Mark Levinson® Reference Surround Sound 3D Audio System.
Make the most of your commute with Apple CarPlay®, which lets you access audiobooks, playlists, podcasts and navigation information from your compatible smartphone. The LS also boasts Amazon Alexa capabilities, so you can stream Amazon Music, create checklists, receive weather reports and manage compatible smart home devices from right behind the wheel. You can even connect Alexa to your navigation system for travel recommendations. You can enjoy even greater convenience with Lexus Enform connected technology, which offers roadside emergency assistance, onboard Wi-Fi® and remote-start capabilities.
Whether you’re looking for an upscale daily driver or a mobile executive suite, the LS has the versatility and technology to make your vision a reality. Elevate your daily commute — consider taking the 2020 Lexus LS for a test drive.
