Five optional upgrade packages are offered

Lexus just unveiled pricing for the new-generation LS sedan at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. The Japanese four-door is significantly more affordable than its German counterpart, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7 Series. Redesigned from the ground up on a new platform, the latest LS has a sportier design, the most luxurious interior yet, and new V-6 and hybrid drivetrains. Pricing starts from $75,000 before options and special packages.
