Abbreviation Name [Japanese Name]
IS International Sedan [Altezza]
IS [Altezza Gita] (SportCross)
ES Executive Sedan [Windom]
GS Grand Sedan [Aristo]
LS Luxury Sedan [Celsior]
SC Sports Coupe/Sports Convertible [Soarer]

There's a bit of debate over the SUV's
LX supposedly stands for Luxury Xcursion or Luxury Cross (as in Sportcross), and RX is Refined something...
LX is the Land Cruiser Cygnus in Japan, the RX is the Harrier.
