Question What would your next car be?

Say if your LS was destroyed.
I have a vehicle in mind (a used one because of the high price)
But I'll hold off on revealing for now.

Im the wrong person to ask. I traded my Ls460 for a Hyundai Santa Fe Ultimate. I love it but I’m still getting used to the turbo lag. I also swapped the 235 55 19’s for 235 65 17’s for a much better ride.

2017 Genesis G90 Ultimate or 2015 MB S550. Both of these are about the same price now so I'm leaning towards the S550.

Audi S7, that sportback has my <3. Great power, decent MPG and a little sportier to drive. Would miss the LS soft ride for sure.

I have also been eyeing the LC500 but I figured I would enjoy my LS some more and hopefully the LC will drop in price some. I am already starting to see some selling in the high $70's and I thought they were new in the $90's to $100K.

LS600hL AWD - Once the odometer on my current LS460 hits 250K (currently 179K), i'll get me an LS600hL AWD (the newest year I could find at that time).

I'm somewhat unique in that I've owned an LS460 (2), an LS600hL(2), and a G90 (2017 V6 TT). Of these three, the LS600hL has been my favorite! The G90 was oh-so-close to being the best luxury car for me, but the laggy transmission, lack of "brand cache," eye-popping depreciation, and horrendous dealer service support dropped it down a notch unfortunately. I owned a 2017 G90 V6 TT, so the results might have been different if I had bought one of the V8s (although the dealer service and depreciation would have been the same). To be honest, though, the G90 did seem more appealing to me than the new LS500 - it seems like the G90 would have been the next gen LS in an alternate universe where the Lexus corporate guys hadn't decided to take a turn for the gaudy/sporty look and had stuck with understated elegance and refined, quiet V8 performance.

I came back to a 2010 LS600hL with every option, and am happy as can be! I definitely prefer the touch screen interface in the 2010 and the lack of the spindle grill exterior, though I know there are many who have come to admire the 2013+ LS460s...

If I did not live in the midwest, GS-F.

But more than likely since I will be, there's a good chance of me getting the '19 ES300H.

No matter what though, I will be staying in the Lexus family.

I'd probably get an S Class.

Having gone from the LS to the ES once in my life, I would suggest you think long and hard about that. Over time all the little ways the ES lacks the refinement and attention to detail of the LS will wear on you and start to really bug you.
