Lexus LS
Starting Price: $75,000
The top sedan of Toyota’s luxury Lexus division, the original Lexus LS 400 debuted as a 1990 model and went on to challenge the traditional players in the luxury car segment. Redesigned for 2018, the all-new Lexus LS 500 is probably the most dramatic visual update in the history of a traditionally conservative model. The new LS is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor, with a more coupelike roofline and the latest iteration of what is now the trademark large spindle grille. Based on the same new platform as the LC 500 coupe, the LS 500 is powered by an all-new 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine rated at 416 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque, teamed with quick-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission.
