What a beautiful, elaborate showroom. I thought the Lexus UK showrooms were much nicer compared to the ones in the US, but this takes the cake. The Land Cruiser has a rightful place in there, even if...

Congratulations on your new vehicle! The W222 is a fabulous car and flows much better than the W221. As young as I am, I'm all about this segment.

Hopefully for the LX's sake, especially after seeing the work on the 2016 RX. You correctly called it when you knew it wasn't a redesign, as the timing didn't fit. I just don't understand why some...

Interesting info, that just might be a given. It will be on TNGA's RWD platform if significantly new. If the Century retains a 12-cylinder powerplant, it would be nice to one in the LS as a novelty....

It is quite obvious that it's the current LS, as I had said that in my previous post above. The words "test mule" should never be applied to anything that looks like the upcoming production body of...

Thanks zema, always interesting to hear more about this. Lexus is taking their merrytime on filing new trademarks, as it gives away their plans. LS460 and LS600h trademarks were filed 18 months...

Thanks so much for posting these. As with the 2013 LS, I will now wait for the 2018 Land Cruiser and the 2016 LX570. It has an improved interior at least, but it's no Range Rover. Hopefully the LX...

This has been expected for awhile of course, so I'm not sure why anyone (at least on CL) would be expecting a redesign. It just confirms the idiocy of some Lexus personnel, that were insistent on...

I'm not surprised that the styling is evolutionary, as this was hinted at in 2013, likely a bit after design freeze. The refresh was pretty much a placeholder between the 2009-13 and this 2016 model....

I almost said this was an E-Class coupe (C207), but wow I can't even tell. They are both based on the W204, but never did I realise such similarities to the C-Class coupe (C204).



LOL!...

Toyota seems to be making that a pattern in some areas and leaving things as-is, by not adding newer content and sometimes removing previously available equipment. The LS lost APGS in 2012, likely...

Further delayed? Hopefully not. The MY2015 updates for the 3rd iteration of the 4LS (XF40 III) should've been more significant if that transpires, as a 5-6 year run for a secondary facelift is risky...

The "40-Series" LS was designed with the E65 in mind from about 2002 (XF40 dev. began in 2001). Lexus froze the final design of that back in 2004, just a year before BMW internally approved concept...
