Lexus LS: Fourth GenerationRumors

Rumors Swirl on Next-Generation Lexus LS Debut at Tokyo Motor Show

Lexus LS Models

Autocar is reporting the next-generation Lexus LS will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show this year, backing up an earlier report from Motoring Australia. The article also touches on possible drivetrain configurations:

Unconfirmed reports suggest that the new range-topping saloon from Toyota’s luxury brand will be powered by a V8 hybrid powertrain developing around 535bhp.

A V8-powered LS, without the hybrid system, is tipped to develop around 465bhp.

These numbers also sync up with Motoring Australia, which likely means Autocar is using the earlier article as its source. Still, where there’s smoke, there’s fire, right?

Nothing about a possible LS F? We'll just have to wait and see.

Hmm 535 hp, that's pretty beast for a non F model, now imagine what numbers the LSF would do? watch out S63!!!

Im really excited to see this new model. Lexus needs to make it worth this long wait too (I believe they will lol). Personally, I think the LS will stay classic yet sporty like we see on the current one. I really hope its revealed soon, but we haven't seen any spy shots of it in its new body. We have seen mules previously but none of the actual prototype. (Same with the updated GS).

Are those naturally-aspirated figures?! (=

Look like LS and LC 500 will get NA V8 making +460 PS and LS and LC 500h will get NA V8 + hybrid making +530 PS. Numbers are really good, even more so for NA, but turbo would shut up others.

Pretty easy to get those figures - V8 LS = 5.0 V8 from RC-F V8 LS hybrid - detuned RC-F motor with a hybrid setup

Look forward to seeing the all new LS soon. I hope Lexus would not make too much compromise in the materials inside the cabin and that's where the existing LS (and the GS) shines. It is sad to see more (intended) lack of refinements in recent lower end Lexus models such as IS and NX. I looked at the black-out tapes used in the upper portion of door trims in NX in the showroom the other day -- despite it looks better than the IS, the A-pillar corner (looking from the inside) is an eye sore. You can see where the black-out tape meets at the joint.
