Impressive Power – Lexus LS 500
The 3.4-liter, twin-turbo V6 engine on the LS 500 offers the output one would expect in a flagship sedan: 416 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine features a lip shape on the piston top to help realize low emissions and quiet operation when the engine is cold. The wastegate control on the twin-turbo engine provides stable opening and closing of the valve to enhance performance efficiency. The 10-speed automatic transmission aids in keeping the engine in a more responsive area of its power band.
The LS 500 delivers a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds. The driver can tailor powertrain response and feel by choosing from Eco, Comfort, Normal, Custom, Sport S, or Sport S+ modes. The available AWD system features a Torsen® limited-slip center differential to further enhance grip, traction, and cornering stability. The vehicle’s powerful stance is accentuated by 19-inch alloy noise-reduction wheels with Black and machined finish.
LS 500h AWD
The high-performance LS 500h continues in 2024 with a twin-turbo V6 producing 416 horsepower. The vehicle is adorned with 20-inch alloy noise-reduction wheels with Vapor Chrome finish.
Developed based on the Mobility Teammate Concept, Lexus Teammate™ is built on the belief that people and vehicles can work together in partnership to help achieve safe, convenient, and efficient mobility. Lexus Teammate™ on the LS 500h AWD provides two functions: Advanced Drive and Advanced Park.
Looking the Part
The front of the LS is adorned with a stylish front fascia, while the lower radiator air intakes are squared to express a sturdy and powerful stance. The color of the dark metallic, spindle grill provides an elegant appearance. The 3-projector LED headlamps feature a vertically stacked layout. The deep headlamps and squarish sub-radiator grilles help form the confident nature of the vehicle’s stance.
The 2024 LS will be offered in 10 exterior colors options, depending on grade: Ultra White1, Eminent White Pearl1, Atomic Silver, Manganese Luster2, Iridium1, Obsidian, Caviar, Matador Red Mica, and Nightfall Mica. For 2024, Silver Illusion3 has been added as an exterior color option.

For 2024, Lexus LS customers will continue to appreciate the brand’s signature attention to detail.
Luxury and Executive Packages offer Haku interior ornamentation as an option. The creation of Haku foil is a Japanese technique that has been passed down for more than 400 years. It is made by meticulously flattening a piece of metal until it becomes as thin as one ten-thousandths of a millimeter. The Haku foil is so extremely thin that it must be applied by hand with exquisite craftsmanship, achieving a delicate shine reminiscent of moonlight reflecting over ocean waves. New for 2024, Luxury and Executive Packages include a wood and leather-trimmed heated steering wheel.
On Executive models, the available Kiriko Glass ornamentation and available hand-folded pleats on the door trim exemplify the brand’s handcrafted approach. The striking cut glass ornamentation draws inspiration from Japanese Kiriko glassware. Traditional Kiriko patterns are created using a technique that involves hand-cutting clear colors and delicate lines in a piece of glass, which are then repeatedly polished to a soft glow.
The LS pays considerable attention to the rear seats. There are options for both heating and massage in addition to the Executive Package which adds a passenger-side seat which can be reclined, when the vehicle is parked, up to 48 degrees, an angle chosen for its precise level of comfort.
F SPORT Brings Style and Dynamic Handling
In the F SPORT version of the LS, the garnish of the sub-radiator grilles wraps around to the sides to underline the vehicle’s wide stance. Other elements that help to accentuate the F SPORT’s more dynamic image include a dedicated color for the spindle grille, and 20-inch spoke alloy wheels with a Gloss Black Metallic finish.
Lexus took full advantage of the GA–L platform’s inherent driving agility when developing the F SPORT package. For 2024, this package now includes a heated leather-trimmed steering wheel and a Panoramic View Monitor as standard features.
Lexus infused the F SPORT persona throughout the cabin, starting with the perforated-grill pattern on seating surfaces and Naguri aluminum trim elements. F SPORT 28-way electric/pneumatic seats with passenger-seat power cushion-length extenders brace occupants when driving through curves, ensuring exceptional comfort no matter the length of the drive.

For additional ease of use by the driver and front passenger, a center knob located at the screen’s bottom edge controls power on/off and volume.

LSS+ 3.0 (Standard on LS Gas Models)
2024 Lexus LS gas models come standard with LSS+ 3.0, an integrated suite of active safety equipment and convenience features.
Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection – Designed to help detect a vehicle, pedestrian, or cyclist and provide an audio/visual forward collision warning under certain circumstances. If the driver does not react, the system is designed to provide automatic emergency braking at speeds between approximately 7-110 mph. PCS uses a camera and millimeter-wave radar for enhanced performance and reliability.
- Risk Avoidance Emergency Steer Assist – Helps support collision avoidance with certain detectable objects within the lane by applying gentle braking and steering operation under certain daytime conditions.
- Left Turn Oncoming Vehicle Detection/Braking – Designed to provide a warning and automatic braking if the system determines a driver is turning left in front of an oncoming vehicle in certain daytime conditions.
All-speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) – An adaptive cruise control system intended for highway use that uses radar and camera technology to help keep the vehicle at a preset speed and distance from vehicles ahead, even in stop-and-go traffic. If the system detects the vehicle getting closer than the preset distance, it is designed to automatically slow the vehicle — even to a complete stop. At highway speeds, when the road ahead clears, the vehicle returns to its preset speed.
Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) – When DRCC is enabled and lane markers are detected, LTA uses the lines on the road and/or preceding vehicles to provide active driving assistance and help keep the vehicle centered in its lane.
Emergency Driving Stop System (EDSS) – If the system detects no driver input for some time, audible warnings will alert the driver. If no further inputs are detected, EDSS is designed to bring the vehicle to a gradual stop while keeping it in its lane and hazard lights are activated to warn other road users. EDSS only operates when driving on expressways with DRCC and LTA activated.
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/ SA) – When white/yellow lane markings or certain road edge boundary lines are detected at speeds above 32 mph, LDA w/SA is designed to issue an audio/visual lane departure warning if an inadvertent lane departure is detected. If the driver does not take corrective action, the system is also designed to provide gentle corrective steering for lane keeping assistance.
Road Sign Assist (RSA) – Using an intelligent camera, RSA is designed to detect speed limit signs, stop signs, Do Not Enter signs, yield signs and certain warning signs, and display an icon of the sign on the MID.
Proactive Driving Assist (PDA) – When system operating conditions are met, using the vehicle’s camera and radar, PDA provides gentle braking into curves or gentle braking and/or steering to help support driving tasks such as distance control between the vehicle and a preceding vehicle, pedestrian, or bicyclist.
LSS + 2.5 (Standard on LS Hybrid Models)
All 2024 LS hybrid models come with LSS+ 2.5, which includes PCS with Pedestrian Detection, Low-light Pedestrian and Daytime Bicyclist Detection, Left Turn Vehicle Intersection Support, LDA w/ SA, Intelligent High Beams, DRCC, LTA, and RSA.
