The Lexus LS flagship sedan has been redesigned.

Bowing at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, the 2018 Lexus LS rides on a stretched version of the platform currently underpinning the new Lexus LC coupe. As a result, the new LS is about 1.3-inches longer than the current model, but it weighs 200 pounds less thanks to high-strength steel and aluminum being used.

The sedan also benefits from a new twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine with 415 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque and the automaker says it’s good to sprint to 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds. The same 10-speed automatic transmission found in the LC500 finds its way to the LS.

At first glance, it seems almost reasonable – revenue from gas taxes is falling because cars across the board are using less (or no) gas; infrastructure spending is sorely needed but is only getting more costly thus squeezing budgets even mo…
