2022 Lexus LS

The 2022 Lexus LS is not an exercise in restraint, but it may look so compared to some of its competitors. This lineup tops out about where some of its German competitors begin, so it’s easy enough to overlook the fact that it is not as opulent.

We rate it at a 9 out of 10 thanks to a big warranty, a big infotainment screen, and a wide array of standard and optional features. 

Every LS comes with a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty plus Lexus will pick up the tab for the first two service visits. 

One caveat: as of this writing, Lexus has not released pricing for the 2022 LS 500h. Our score is based on the LS 500.

Which Lexus LS should I buy?

The LS 500 starts at around $77,000, or about $80,000 with all-wheel drive. All things considered, that’s not a bad value for a sedan with nice leather seats, heated front seats, a 12.3-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, active safety tech, and many other features we expect to find in a luxury sedan. BMW and Mercedes charge that much for reasonably well-equipped versions of mid-size sedans, let alone flagships. 

We’d still spend extra for the Interior Upgrade Package with its softer leather, 28-way seats with massage, and wider range of interior trims. 

An additional $9,000 or so buys the Luxury Package with its adaptive air suspension and individually-adjustable rear seats, while the Executive Package with Kiriko Glass Trim swaps in ultra-plush thrones akin to those American Airlines puts in its swankiest transcontinental flights.  If you know, you know, and if you do, you’re probably just fine with the $24,000 upgrade from a base LS 500. That’s only a few JFK to LAX flights, after all. 

How much is a fully loaded Lexus LS?

Lexus wants around $113,000 for a fully equipped LS 500. Ironically, that’s exactly where the Mercedes S-Class begins.
