Product Overview

Lexus LS Mark IV (chassis code XF40) facelift 2 is a full-size luxury sedan in production from 2012 to 2018. It was available with two V8 engines that displaced 4.6 to 5.0 liters.
Compared to the pre-facelift and facelift-1 vehicles, the LS now has a dramatically different front fascia, which incorporates Lexus' new "corporate fascia", the spindle grille. Lots of lines are changed, too, and the lights are completely different from before. Lexus also replaced a significant number of parts on the vehicle, though nothing around the powertrain was touched.
While the LS 460 Sport model was exclusive to RWD vehicles, now it became a the F-Sport package available to all.
Whether this facelift made the Gen4 LS better or was Lexus compensating for losing the power race against its German rivals is a question to which a definitive answer cannot be made.
