The Lexus LS500, a full-size luxury sedan, represents the fifth generation of the LS series from Lexus, the luxury division of Toyota. Known for its "Luxury Sedan" reputation, this flagship model underwent a significant change in the fifth generation, transitioning from V8 to V6 engines. Introduced at the 2017 North American International Auto Show, the LS500 was built on the GA-L platform and showcased the first V6 in the series, a 3.4-liter twin-turbo V35A-FTS producing 415 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. The design, previewed by the LF-FC concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, features a longer wheelbase than its predecessors, with a lower bonnet and boot. The LS500, known for its stylish appearance, high quality, and advanced components, is equipped with safety features like Pre-Crash with pedestrian detection, radar-guided cruise control, lane-departure alert and -keeping assist, along with 10 airbags. The exterior flaunts a six-sided window design, smoothly integrated flush-surface windows, and an outer-slide-type panoramic moonroof. It is the first Lexus sedan to offer such features. The LS500 also boasts of a 3D-surround Mark Levinson audio system with in-ceiling speakers, a 12.3-inch navigation display, and an optional 24-inch, color heads-up display (HUD). In 2020, the LS500 received enhancements in suspension, ride quality, handling, and interior parts, including revised seats and updated leather options. Aiming to lower emissions and reduce noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH), the V6 was updated with a new piston design. Further upgrades were made in 2021, such as the Advanced Drive with a driver monitor camera and remote software updates.
The Lexus LS500 has concerns regarding potential cracks in the tire's sidewall reinforcement layer, specifically linked to tires from a certain supplier. This defect can lead to abnormal noises and vibrations and, in extreme cases, tire tread separation, which increases accident risk. The 2018 Lexus LS 500 RWD has faced issues with the All Season Bridgestone Turanza EL450 run-flat tires, which display pronounced wear by 30,000 miles. Under-inflation and alignment issues contribute to this wear, and there's a noted vehicle pull that requires a tire swap from left to right. The lifespan of these low-profile run-flat tires is potentially only 20,000 miles, with a significant $420 replacement cost per tire. A separate concern arose when an LS500 tire disintegrated after merely 11,000 miles, emphasizing the implications of not having a spare tire. The run-flat tires' design allows for short-term operation post-puncture, but such incidents highlight the need for transparent consumer information during the buying process. The 2021 Lexus LS500 model underscores the importance of correct tire inflation, influencing safety, fuel efficiency, and tire longevity. Not adhering to recommended pressures can lead to uneven tire wear, decreased handling, reduced fuel economy, and blowout risks. Regular adjustments to tire pressures, considering factors like temperature changes, are vital, supported by the 2021 Lexus LS500's tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) which signals when intervention is needed.
