Product Overview

Lexus LS 5 (chassis code XF50) facelift is a flagship full-size luxury sedan in production from 2020. It is available with a range of V6 engines that displaced 3.4 to 3.5 liters.
Compared to the pre-facelift LS 5, the facelifted car received only minor cosmetic updates. Crucially, Lexus / Toyota supposedly updated the V35A-FTS engine to reduce NVH; as it was a new engine, it is likely that Toyota noticed flaws in its original design and updated the internals to improve its long-term reliability, too.
Lexus has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.26 coefficient of drag to show for it.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
There's no need to bemoan the loss of the LS 500's V8. The 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engine under the hood does more than enough to motivate this large cruiser. The LS 500 is built for long, steady cruising, and it absolutely dominates at that task.
