Lexus LS Generations

The Lexus LS has been in production for over 18 now. Throughout this of time it has gone through complete redesigns. A complete is called a generation. Changes in LS are very easy to recognize and I show you the differences shortly. To things more complicated, are design changes within the

The changes made within an LS are designated as a series. Sometimes the were minor and sometimes were more drastic. they have in common is they were not a complete and therefore they cannot be a generation change. The official UK website is where we see that uses the term series to the changes within a generation.

It is important to note that minor improvements have made year-to-year but they are not to warrant a designation. For example, the were slightly improved in but we still refer to a 1991 as a Generation Series I LS400.

Now that you know the terms you can see why often get them mixed up. are currently only four LS according to Lexus! It’s easy to see this just by at the model numbers, UCF10, UCF30, and UCF40.

I think this they were referring to the time the LS400 series was Whoever wrote that could have made a word choice in the quoted but it does make sense if you your LS history. If the 1998 LS was the third generation then it be called the UCF30, but it’s In official terms, meaning by

looking at the model number, are currently only four LS
