, Automotive Editor -
While understandably the king of all Lexus LS models, the 600h L does not offer much logic behind its relatively high price.

Introduction

Though boasting new exterior and interior design for 2013, the Lexus LS 600h L retains its six-digit MSRP and meager gains in fuel economy. Despite adding almost $40,000 to the cost of an LS 460, its 19 mpg city rating improves on the non-hybrid by only three miles per gallon and returns an identical highway rating of 23 mpg.

The 600h L can, however, reach 60 mph more quickly than any other model in the LS lineup. It does this with a 5-liter gasoline engine paired with electric motors to produce a combined 438 horsepower; an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission sends power to all four wheels.

Lexus offers the 600h L in a single, lavishly-equipped trim level, and its luxuriously appointed cabin treats as many as five passengers to one of the smoothest rides in the automotive world.
