, Automotive Editor -

The Lexus LS 460’s reputation for conservative comfort and reliability continues after its recent redesign, although some new exterior styling details added a fresh new look to this venerable luxury car.

What's New for 2014

Coming off a 2013 redesign, the LS 460 models remain virtually unchanged for the 2014 year.

Choosing Your Lexus LS 460

The LS 460 sedans can be equipped with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. Each of these options carries additional differences.

With rear-wheel drive you get:

  • A 4.6-liter V8 that produces 387 horsepower and 367 pound-feet of torque.
  • Access to the All-Weather equipment package on an optional basis. This package includes an enhanced interior heater that is designed for high initial output to warm up a cold interior; windshield-wiper deicer; headlamp washers; and a higher capacity vehicle battery.

If you choose the all-wheel-drive feature, you get:

  • The same V8 engine with decreased output of 360 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque.
  • The All-Weather package is standard.
  • Heated rear outboard seats that are optional on the shorter model and standard on the longer one.

This sedan lineup is also available in two lengths:

  • The regular length has a wheelbase of 9 feet 9 inches and an overall length of just over 16 feet 6 inches.
  • The long wheelbase version increases each measurement by about five inches. How does this affect you? Rear-seat passengers gain about five inches of leg room.

Features exclusive to the shorter model include the Comfort option package featuring:

  • Climate-comfort front seats
  • Front-seat climate concierge, an automatic system that remembers preferred climate settings for each front seat
  • Heated outboard rear seats (all-wheel-drive model only)
  • Power rear sunshade
  • Power open/close function for the trunk

Additionally, the F Sport package is available exclusively on the shorter wheelbase. This package features:

  • An F Sport-tuned and lowered adaptive air suspension
  • Five drive-mode selections
  • Paddle shifters and, in rear-wheel-drive models only, downshift rev-matching capability
  • 19-inch 10-spoke forged alloy wheels
  • Brembo brakes
  • Exclusive F Sport steering wheel, interior trim and exterior styling

The longer model, designated as the LS 460 L, offers two seating configurations. One is the five-seat layout found in the short LS 460, but the other seats only four but replaces that fifth seat with a rear-seat center console. All of the components of the regular-length’s optional Comfort package come as standard equipment on the L version.

Two additional option packages are available exclusively for the long model.

  • The Executive-class Seating package is only available for the four-seat configuration and includes such features as a rear-seat Blu-ray/DVD-based entertainment system with wireless headphones, a recliner built into the right-rear seat with an ottoman and a shiatsu massage function, a cool box, and four-zone climate concierge.
  • An Advanced Pre-collision System package bundles together most of the optional electronic safety systems such as pre-collision warning with braking, lane-keeping assist, and driver attention monitor.

Other option packages available for both lengths of the LS 460 include:

  • The Semi-Aniline Leather and Alcantara package makes interior trim upgrades available.
  • The Air Suspension package featuring an adaptive air suspension and drive-mode selections.

Individual options available for all LS 460 sedans include:

  • LED headlamps
  • Heated steering wheel
