Default 2018 Lexus LS350

Lexus is going to release a new LS350 with a v6 from the GS350, great solid proven engine but maybe a little under powered for the big LS.

Only for the China market, it's not coming here.

They might as well go ahead and make it FWD and call it the Avalon Super Limited.

the v6 is no slouch, I put it really close to the power of the v8. A GS350 is faster then an LS460, sure the LS is about 400 pounds heavier but still thats pretty close

Not really even close. Put the v8 in the same car with the same gearing, and it will blow the doors off the v6.

Every year they're pumping the performance of the 3.5 V6... so impressive. And can't agree more.

It's not all about peak hp numbers. For a big, heavy luxury car, it's about smooth, effortless, quiet, reliable power. You can get just about any engine to deliver big hp, but how it delivers it will be very different. The torque curves will be very different. Transmission patterns will be different. Redlines will be different, leading almost assuredly to noise levels varying. Just about the entire acceleration experience will vary. Some are suitable for a flagship luxury car. Others, not so much.

It's based on the same basic engine, but it's not the same engine. Camry is a transverse layout and LS is a longitudinal rear drive layout.
